Saints' Kasim Edebali: Could start at defensive end
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Edabali is a candidate to start at defensive end in the wake of Hau'oli Kikaha's potentially season-ending knee injury, reports the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

As a hybrid linebacker and defensive end, Edabali appeared in all 16 games in 2015, recording 21 tackles (18 solo) and five sacks in a reserve role. The Saints had planned to move Kikaha from the strong-side linebacker position he played as a second-round drafted rookie in 2015 to the "open" edge rusher spot opposite Cam Jordan. His injury, however, means that others will need to step up. Unfortunately for Edabali, it appears that Obum Gwacham may have the initial edge in the battle to replace Kikaha along the defensive line, as Gwacham has been taking snaps with the first team defense since the start of OTAs. Meanwhile, Edabali has primarily worked with a trainer on the side during the OTA sessions open to the media this spring. Nonetheless, Edabali could be an intriguing option in deeper IDP leagues if he is able to secure significant playing time this season.
