New Orleans checks in as the highest-rated NFC South team in Peter King’s offseason power rankings at The Monday Mornign Quarterback.

King has the Saints at No. 14, which checks in as the seventh-highest team in the NFC, trailing No. 2 Seattle, No. 3 Green Bay, No. 6 Minnesota, No. 7 Philadelphia, No. 10 Arizona and No. 12 Dallas.

In his description of the Saints’ outlook, King focuses on tight end Josh Hill, who’s expected to take over some of the pass-catching responsibilities left open by the departure of Jimmy Graham.

The rest of the NFC South includes Carolina at No. 20, Atlanta at No. 21 and Tampa Bay at No. 29. King identifies major question marks for all three.
