Saints: 3 UDFA that have a strong chance to make 53-man roster
There’s no denying the Saints are one of the most talented teams in football, and cracking their 53-man roster is no easy task.
The New Orleans Saints nailed the 2020 NFL Draft this year, but they also had a great undrafted free agent signing period as well, bringing in 13 undrafted players to compete for a spot on the coveted 53-man roster.
The Saints undrafted free agent signings ranged anywhere from the running back position, the offensive line, and wide receiver positions to the linebackers, defensive lineman, and cornerbacks. The bulk of the areas on this team saw some UDFA competition join the mix.
The entire undrafted free agent class actually is very talented and all could have a roster spot locked up with a strong offseason. Some of these young rookies will be replacing some veterans on the Saints roster while others will be guaranteed a job from day one.
As we saw with Larry Warford, the team will cut a player if they can benefit from it. With some of these UDFAs on the roster, a solid camp could see them crack the final roster.
That said, here’s a look at three undrafted free agents who have a strong chance of making the final roster.
