In a league where depth at the running back position continues to become more and more important, the Saints possess depth at the position that has helped produce one of the NFL’s most productive ground attacks. The main strength of the rushing attack is the diverse talents of the position group, featuring tailbacks Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory and fullbacks Jed Collins and Korey Hall. With such a deep group, the running attack is able to better withstand the injuries players are prone to at one of the most physical positions in football. In 2012, this group of backs looks to serve as an even bigger weapon in the Saints’ offensive arsenal.
