Projecting how much of a difference Rob Ryan will make for a New Orleans Saints defense coming off one of the worst seasons in league history is pretty impossible at this point. Opinions outside of the Saints facility on how Ryan and his 3-4 defensive scheme will mesh with Coach Sean Payton and the returning players range all over the map.

Then there's the question of which players could thrive in the new defensive scheme and which ones won't fit Ryan's style or framework.

These questions will linger during all phases of the offseason, from free agency to training camp and everywhere in-between. There's no denying there will be a drastic change in scheme and personality from Ryan and Steve Spagnuolo. Just like there was a 180-degree change from Gary Gibbs to Gregg Williams.
