Lewis

Swann
Wilson

Brian Dixon
Brandon Dixon
Ken Crawley
All but Lewis, Breaux, Williams are expendable in my opinion

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

We were rated as having the #1 undrafted free agent classes:

Top seven undrafted free-agent classes following 2016 NFL Draft - NFL.com

1. New Orleans Saints

Sean Payton had only five draft picks to work with this year, so a strong UDFA class was a must. The Saints found two potential starters in guards Landon Turner and Avery Young (who could end up at tackle eventually). Offensive tackle Ryker Mathews and centers Jack Allen and Marcus Henry also have NFL futures. Getting receiver Michael Thomas in the second round was a steal, and either Jordan Williams (tough possession receiver) or Jared Dangerfield (taller downfield threat) could make the roster. Depth was needed at defensive back, so picking up De'Vante Harris, Ken Crawley, Trae Elston and Michael Caputo was a haul. Although D.J. Pettway didn't play much at Alabama, his skill set is worth a look.

Perhaps, but last year Wilson proved he was pretty good in the slot.

And Swann is a playmaker. Obviously the concussions scare everyone.

The Dixon brothers are pretty good special teams players.

If he makes the team, thats great. But he's gonna have to earn it obviously. I'd say right now he looks like a prime PS player unless he plays lights out in camp and pre-season

We usually only keep 10 db's, and 5 will be safeties. Maybe with Bush and Sunseri gone we only keep 4 safeties and 6 CB's. But with so many 3 safety sets I'll bet we keep 5 safeties.

Byrd, Bell, Vaccaro, , Sanford, Harris and a few UDFA prospects may push Sanford.


The easily offended are easily manipulated

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

Are there any 5-11, 176 pound CB's in the NFL that run a 4.48?

Would he be the smallest CB, also with short arms, in the entire league?

I love me some underdogs but wow, thats small. Sounds strictly like a cover-2 guy at best.

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

I don't think he has to be tall, adding a few pounds maybe but if he is pesky as hell I could go with that. I think he should be fine.

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

Jabari Greer was 5-11, 180 lbs so it's certainly do-able.
