Why the Saints can cover

Pete Werner is a versatile defender that owns the athleticism to cover opposing running backs and tight ends. The Ohio State product is agile in space, but can also lay the boom. Werner is tied for fourth in the league in solo tackles (52) and is tied for fifth in forced fumbles (two).
Demario Davis has been a solid player in this linebacker corp. Davis is powerful and strong for his size and plays exceptionally well in the run game. The Arkansas State product is patient when dissecting a play before exploding to the ball carrier. The two-time Second-Team All-Pro selection is second on the team in total tackles (43), and TFLs (six) but tied for first in sacks (five). See which team to pick here.
