Maybe the New Orleans Saints should just stop drafting players and just pick up players the other 31 teams don’t draft? It’s a ridiculous idea, but Bobby Richardson supports growing evidence of the New Orleans Saints uncanny ability to get the most out of undrafted players.

The defensive end has 29 total tackles and a half a sack on the year. J.J. Watt numbers they are not; but he is in the top 10 in run stop percentage among 4-3 defensive ends with half as many defensive stops as Watt.

Imagine if he had started every game this year! Richardson may be a quiet strength on this defense now, but expect him to get louder as his career progresses.
