Saints Player Rankings: Pro Bowler Deonte Harris comes in at No. 20
Heading into the 2020 NFL season, the New Orleans Saints have undoubtedly one of the best rosters in the entire NFL.
Last season, the Saints had a total of six players receive All-Pro selections, and that strength was only bolstered by key free agency additions throughout the offseason.
Their efforts in the offseason have resulted in the team being granted the second position on ESPN’s list of roster rankings of strength.
This ranking is not without verified talent at practically every position on the team’s roster. While there are some weaknesses at certain positions in terms of depth, the team as a whole has numerous stars that make the team successful.
One of those players who has emerged as a recent standout for the team as an undrafted free agent from last season, Deonte Harris.
Despite going undrafted, Harris has overcome a plethora of obstacles in order to even find a spot on the Saints’ roster. Not only did Harris have to prove his abilities to the scouts because of his underwhelming stature of 5-foot-6 but even after he had signed with the team his competitive nature was tested.
Ever since Deonte Harris made the decision to join the Black and Gold of New Orleans, he has continuously demonstrated improvement.
Before he even received the chance to see the field as a part of the team, Harris had to outperform proven veteran returner Marcus Sherels in order to be named a starter. It wasn’t difficult to see why special teams coordinator Darren Rizzi made a gamble on Harris over Sherels once the season began.
