The Saints are loaded in some positions but weak in others. Some players will have to show off their versatility to remain on the final 53-man roster.

When you have a roster as loaded and talented as the Saints do, final cuts become increasingly difficult to factor in guys who can make an immediate impact on your team while managing who will be useful for the future.

The Saints have always prided themselves on having a very versatile roster by bringing in players who can play multiple positions. The 2020 offseason has proven to be no different.

After all, look at what the team did in the draft, taking Cesar Ruiz and Tommy Stevens, two players they hope can play multiple positions in the offense. They also snagged Zach Baun who they hope can be a versatile linebacker.

This team has been built to have athletes that can make the best use of their talent, and it’s clearly seen in the team’s valuation of Taysom Hill. Hill will be making over $16 million in the 2021 season.

That said, here is a look at three players who will need to change positions in order to remain on the roster.
