Wow. I can't believe how many undrafted players we are counting on to start and/or contribute. That leaves me with a bad feeling.

Re: Saints sign TE Michael Egnew, release DL Lawrence Virgil among flurry of moves

From 2012 NFL.com Scouting Draft Analysis:

TE Michael Egnew, Missouri, 6' 5" 252 lbs

Overview

Egnew is an athletic, tall prospect similar to recent NFL successes in that he is somewhat underweight but creates mismatches up and down the field. A converted receiver, Egnew has struggled with traditional tight end responsibilities, such as blocking in-line and being an overall run-game presence. He is athletic for his size and presents a speed mismatch on linebackers and a size mismatch on safeties, which will ultimately define his value in this year's draft.

We've had someone like that before...

Maybe it just means we're uncertain that we already have the answer to a position in-house. We need help in the middle of our defense, perhaps the middle of our OL (one Guard maybe), and we often look to be running outta DBs due to injury.
