With the 2017 NFL Draft in the books, the New Orleans Saints quickly turned attention Saturday evening to signing undrafted free agents.

At least 10 of the signings, such as LSU wide receiver Travin Dural and BYU linebacker Sae Tautu, were previously reported or confirmed over the weekend.

The Saints made those signings, along with the additions of Memphis cornerback Arthur Maulet and UMass fullback John Robinson-Woodgett, official Monday afternoon by announcing the transactions.

The 12 undrafted free agents added to the roster after the draft are Dural, Tautu, Maulet, Robinson-Woodgett, Auburn defensive tackle Devaroe Lawrence, New Hampshire offensive tackle Andrew Lauderdale, Illinois State guard Cameron Lee, Miami (Ohio) offensive lineman Collin Buchanan, Southern Mississippi center Cameron Tom, Marshall guard Clint Van Horn, Florida wide receiver Ahmad Fulwood and Utah long snapper Chase Dominguez.



New Orleans isn't likely finished tweaking the roster, as the team entered the draft with 75 players and added seven players through the annual three-day selection process.

With the 12 undrafted free agents officially announced, the Saints project at 94 players on the roster, which would place the team over the 90-man maximum allowed on the offseason roster.

The Saints are scheduled to hold rookie minicamp on May 12-15.

Langston wide receiver Bruce Thompson, Oregon State linebacker Caleb Saulo and North Dakota State guard Zack Johnson received invitations to attend the rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, according to sources.

I'd like to see what good coaching (Curtis J) and a good QB can do for Dural (WR) at camp. It wasn't entirely his fault he had Cam Cameron as his OC and terrible QB play down in Baton Rouge for years.

If you could compare your play to one player in the NFL who would it be and why?


Jarvis Landry, he is a great route runner, physical and when the ball is coming to him on 3rd down and the defense knows its coming to him, he still catches it. He is a big play maker.

Very excited about Dural.
He's raw talent and size.
He had some drops but he also had some bad QB's that LSU was parading. Some of those QB's had arms that were too strong.
Can't wait to see what Curtis Johnson does with him and what a passer like Brees delivers.

I honestly don't think we'll miss Cooks at all. The only way Brees doesn't get 5000 yards passing again is if we average 140+ per game on the ground.

And this would mean we would once again be unstoppable.

That means they had competition from other teams for those players.
