New Orleans got 3 of the 15.
De'Vante Harris - CB, Texas A&M
Jack Allen - C, Michigan State
Landon Turner - OG, UNC

Not too shabby.
We all thought that about Allen and Turner but Harris came out of nowhere.

This is from his senior year in high school. I know he played a few years at A&M but this kid has a lot of potential for us.

You will have to sit through a couple of trivago commercials but it's well worth it!

You think Lelito has what it takes? He seems very average when he's in there unless it's him trying to help other linemen.

I thought he did OK.

Maybe not. I'm no expert.

It's Lelito's spot to lose and he's in a contract year. Plus, his competition is a group of UDFA's. If he doesn't show this year, he hasn't got it in regards to being a starter in the NFL. But, being a backup swing man at guard and center is nothing to sneeze at.

And his PFF grades last year, 6th best on our entire offense at +5.4

Thats kinda getting it done guys.

Our 4th worst offensive player was Senio Kelemete at -5.5

I think I know where the interior problems came from.

I was saying the whole season last year that Kelemete was the biggest problem in pass pro. His only decent game was actually the last where he played LT.


As an Alabama fan Danno, what is your take on D.J. Pettway?

He didn't get a lot of snaps but did fine when he played. He measures as a tweener. ProbAbly just a 3rd down pass rusher at best. Not sure about his special teams skills tho

Re: 2016 Saints UDFAs

I agree that we may have nailed this draft. The UDFA's have a ton of potential and I expect a couple of them to get substantial playing time. I can see four or five making the final roster. It's too bad we can only keep nine on the practice squad because apparently they are a talented group.
