The New Orleans Saints are going to need a few young players to step up this season, and one of them that the team will ultimately rely on quite a bit is Zack Baun, one of the team’s third-round picks last season.

Baun didn’t play much this past season. As a rookie, he was initially behind Alex Anzalone and then Kwon Alexander after the team traded for him and before he tore his Achilles.
