The New Orleans Saints addressed many needs throughout the 2014 NFL draft. However, as customary after the draft, there are a host of undrafted rookie free agents that are brought in to fill the team’s 90-man roster. Today, we highlight Logan Kilgore, a quarterback from Middle Tennessee State.
You have heard of Middle Tennessee State, as the team formerly played in the Sun Belt conference prior to joining Conference USA in 2013. If you are a Ragin’ Cajun from the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, then you know who the college is.
As per NFL Draft Scout, Kilgore was ranked #30 out of 103 quarterbacks. He played four seasons as a Blue Raider, and finished his career with a 61% completion percentage, 7,849 passing yards, 53 touchdowns, 36 interceptions, and a 128.1 rating. Prior to joining the Blue Raiders, Kilgore led Bakersfield College to a 10-2 record in 2009, passing for 22 touchdowns and 2,512 yards. He also earned MVP honors in the process.
Kilgore is an extreme longshot to make the team’s active roster this year (see the current depth chart of Drew Brees, Luke McCown, and Ryan Griffin), but should the team like what they see out of him, there’s a good chance that he can land on the practice squad. For now, he’ll just have to enjoy throwing passes to Brandin Cooks.
I would gladly take that.
