New Orleans Saints: Ranking the UDFAs by likeliness to crack 53-man roster
Players Who Will Make the Roster:
Out of the twelve players the New Orleans Saints signed, I think only three of them will make the opening day 53-man roster.
Of those three, West Virginia cornerback Keith Washington is included. Washington is a tall, physical cornerback who will fit well in the New Orleans secondary. I already think Washington is an upgrade from PJ Williams and he could fill that number three cornerback spot instantly.
Washington compiled 63 tackles, a sack and a half, one forced fumble, one fumble recovered, five interceptions, 18 passes defended, and one defensive touchdown in his two years at West Virginia.
Joe Bachie Jr. checks in as an undrafted free agent the Saints signed who will likely make the final 53-man roster as well.
Most analysts had a fourth or fifth-round grade on the former Michigan State linebacker and the Saints got him as an undrafted free agent. Bachie is a very physical player who will likely play special teams his first year with the team.
Since the Saints have no linebackers on the roster after the 2020 season aside from their most recent draftee, Bachie has a good chance of sticking around and being a productive playmaker in the big easy.
Bachie concluded his college career with 285 tackles, 28 tackles for a loss, seven sacks, 11 passes defended, four forced fumbles, and five interceptions.
The final player I think has a good chance of making the final 53 man roster is Tennessee wide receiver, Marquez Callaway. Marquez Callaway is a playmaker who has a ton of potential.
Callaway logged 92 receptions, 1,646 yards, a 17.9 yards per reception average, and 13 touchdowns in his career with the Volunteers. Callaway has the potential to be the next great undrafted free agent receiver and the sky truly is the limit for him.
