Ok here we go a start to the list of possible unknowns that the saints may pull out of their hat on draft day and during the UDFA period. Might as well look at them we always have at least 3 in the mix.

I can not remember were I got the list but it is a pretty good one.

Re: 2008 Small School Top 50

TOP 3 SMALL SCHOOL TIGHT ENDS
1. Kolomona Kapanui, West Texas A&M, 6032, 271lbs, 4.64 40
Kapanui was a member of USC's 2001 recruiting class but decided to transfer due to the academic work load, lack of playing time, and a hip injury. He came to West Texas A&M and showed the Hawaiian-born tight end could light it up. The two-time All-Lone Star selection also earned AP and D2Football.com - Division II Football All-America honors in 2007 with 39 catches for 481 yards and seven touchdowns. He will have to show he can be durable and take below average size for the position and use it in the NFL. If he can stay healthy and learn the system he will have a chance to be a solid steal on day two. He will be at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month and should land in the late rounds with a good workout.
2. Drew Atchison, William & Mary, 6056, 247lbs, 4.74 40
Atchison spent most of '05 on the travel squad and then caught 12 passes in '06 and caught 34 balls for 475 yards and six touchdowns in '07. He earned honorable mention All-America honors by The Sports Network and VASID All-State honors this year, respectively. He also played baseball in college with three appearances in '04. He catches most balls with his hands and has great size for the position. He struggles to block linebackers and safeties in space and lacks straight-line speed. He played in the 2008 East-West Shrine Game but does not have an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine. He will be a 7th-PFA type project for a team wiling to take the time to develop this raw prospect. He should end up as a priority free agent signing after the draft.
3. Joseph Tuineau, Southeast Missouri State, 6072, 272lbs, 4.87 40
Tuineau will be difficult to grade with a tight end/tackle tweener body and a lack of playing experience. He redshirted in 2003 and then hauled in just nine passes in '04. His 2005 campaign was his breakout season where he hauled in 25 balls for 305 yards on his way to earning 2nd team All-OVC honors. Due to having two senior tight ends and the coaching staff feeling he needed more experience, he was benched and still managed to catch six passes as the third-string tight end. Born in Fiji, Joseph moved to New Zealand at the age of eight where he played rugby. He is very raw, but has the talent to start in the NFL after three to four years of coaching. T his year he finished second on the team with 21 catches for 334 yards and one touchdown. He was not invited to the scouting combine so his pro day will be important. He might be a surprise pick in the late rounds due to his tremendous upside.
Notables: Louis Irizarry, Youngstown State; Chris Wagner, South Dakota State; Matthew Sherry, Villanova; Chris Conklin, Wingate; Matthew Mulligan, Maine; Jeff Fielder, Minnesota-Mankato; Buck Reed, Bethel (TN); Eric Tonkin, Concordia (MN); Clint Wright, Northern Colorado

I forgot about Skyler, He is gonna have a tough road ahead of him to make the team, especially if we draft a wr/rs.
