I'm sure you will say they are not "great" but most of them have plenty of potential with more playing time and/or have already been solid contributors one way or another. Probably more that I haven't thought about. Point is you need those picks and signings to work out so you can fill out the roster with solid players who don't cost much. I'd say the Saints have done maybe a better job than any team in the league except maybe the Patriots with that.
I'd agree with all of them except Cadet

He is literally useless and a waste of a roster spot in my opinion.

So basically a 4th string RB who plays every special teams unit, averages nearly 8 yards per catch all while making NFL minimum wage is what you consider useless and a waste of a roster spot?

I'm not seeing that one at all.

Sounds like his right hand man will be taking over for him. Great to have some fresh blood and eyes doing some different things.

Not us, evidently.... please recheck our stellar early round track record in the last few years.

Good for Pace. All the poaching that's been going on for the past few years are a testament of our well run and respected our organization has been. Now while the results aren't always there... not everyone can be the Patriots.

Key word was proven. None of those players are "finds" or "steals" beyond what every other team does.

Also, you missed the best UDFA we have on the team right now. He is the only one that I would consider proven.

Yes.

I think he is talking about the guy that fumbles every other time he gets the ball.

Bairing in mind he makes absolutely zero impact on gameday, yeah I'd say we could use the roster spot better.

Maybe for a DB or LB or an extra O lineman.
