New Orleans Saints draft analysis: Team stays disciplined, doesn't reach for picks

“We think we’re a pretty good football team, and so it kind of gets to the point now where you don’t have to reach for a need. We’ve done a great job in the offseason with unrestricted free agency, so now, we had a pool of about 18 players that we thought would potentially be there in the third and fourth round and they were there. And again, we didn’t reach on anybody. We let the board come to us and maintained the discipline of the draft.” — Saints interim coach Joe Vitt

There is definitely potential there. I just hope the coaches can bring it out soon.

I think they will. Especially on the Defensive side. Spags & Vitt were excited to get Hicks. All the guys from the draft to the UDFA are from mostly from smaller schools. I think this team's scouts do what other teams don't....focus on EVERY school not just the powerhouses for talent. If you look @ the league, especially our team, guys that get overlooked because of where they went to school have a better attitude and work ethic. Look @ guys like Crabtree, Dez Bryant, Jamarcus Russle & Vince Young who come from big schools that play on a national stage all through their college careers....they've either not lived up to the hype, had a false sense of entitlement, or are just not mature or hungry enough mentally to put their all into it. Hell we've even had guys like that...Ellis, Charles Brown, Meach (not from a personality or lockeroom standpoint but on field he good but not the world beater we thought we were getting in the 1st round)

U see the difference in guys like, Colston, PT, Evans, Nicks & Graham. All of those guys work hard, put their team first, and have won a ring because they have that chip of no one believing in them besides the team that took them in on their shoulders. When you're a coveted first rounder

PT, Moore and Joe Morgan at least from the top of my head.


Actually, Moore wasn't an original UDFA signing by the Saints, but by the Browns.

Other UDFA signings by the Saints on the current roster: Gallette, Casillas, Higgins, Ivory, Abdul-Quddus and Tanner.


Other UDFA signings on the Saints' current roster:


Greer was originally an UDFA by the Bills.

De La Puenta was originally an UDFA by the 49ers.

Drescher (LS) was originally an UDFA by the Failclowns.

Hartley was originally an UDFA by the Broncos.

Hawthorne was originally an UDFA by the Seahawks.

Herring was originally an UDFA by the Colts.

King was originally an UDFA by the Titans.

Miller was originally an UDFA by the Browns.

Amaya was originally an UDFA by the Dolphins.

Collins was originally an UDFA by the Eagles.

Johnson was originally an UDFA by the Colts.

Daniel was originally a college FA by the Redskins.

Howell was originally an UDFA by the Titans.

McLlwain was originally an UDFA by the Failclowns.

Parks was originally an UDFA by the Rams.

Taylor was originally an UDFA by the Texans.

Trautwein was originally an UDFA by the Rams.

Victorian was originally an UDFA by the Patriots.


And some of the Saints' UFAs who might return were UDFAs themselves:


Charleston was originally an UDFA by the Texans.

Humber was originally an UDFA by the Colts.

Humphrey was originally an UDFA by the Colts.


That's all the guys on the current official Saints' roster.


Hope this helps you out a little.

This may be of help. You could also just wiki it.
