2017 Saints Rookie Mini-Camp May 12-14

Alright, alright, alright...Saints have a Rookies Mini Camp scheduled next week, Friday through Sunday, May 12-14...

We've got UDRFA (Undrafted Rookie Free Agent) and RFFA (Restricted/Futures Free Agent) coming into town for evaluation.

Who do you want to see make an impression, to get extended a contract, and to receive a legitimate shot at making this roster?

Okay, I'll start... Saints RFFA DT Justin Zimmer, Ferris State; 6' 3", 295 lbs...

Freakish athlete from same small school as Saints WR Jake Lampmann...

Loved this prospect since last year's draft - was p/o'd when we threw all our lower picks away to move up for twice for Payton's two-for-one buys; well, if we'd just waited on Vonn Bell or taken the next best safety, we still would've had the picks for Onyemata and Zimmer...

Damn Zimmer is strong. Gotta wonder if they can develop him. Great pick up by the Saints. That kid has some serious power.

Another take on why I'd like to Zimmer make the jump and win a spot at the 3Tech is our depth chart could look like this Week 1...

Now you can spell move Ony outside full-time as he auditioned last season, keeping an older Jordan fresher...

You'd have two terrific athletes in Rankins and Zimmer at the 3 tech tackle really disrupting the active gap...

Fairley has shown his impact is made in bursts on passing downs and despite a torn labrum, Davison was beast on run downs...

And you could have three different quality pass rushers to interchange in Okafor, Hendrickson and Kikaha on the weakside...


DEFENSE

DE (2) 94 - Cameron Jordan, 93 - David Onyemata

DT (2) 98 - Sheldon Rankins, 92 - Justin Zimmer

NT (2) 95 - Tyeler Davison, 90 - Nick Fairley

DE (2/3) 97 - Alex Okafor, 99 -Trey Hendrickson (R3, P103), 44 - Hau'oli Kikaha

Practice Squad:

00 -Al-Quadin Muhammad (R6, P196)
96 - Ashaad Mabry

Trade? or third pass rusher to regain value?

44 - Hau'oli Kikaha

At this point, anything we get from Kikaha is lagniappe after 3 ACLs.
