10 Saints that could be cut before the team reports to camp
Number Three: Derrick Kelly
Derrick Kelly is an offensive lineman for the Saints who has a bit of versatility as he can play both offensive tackle and offensive guard.
The Florida State alum was a standout in college for the Seminoles as he helped anchor the number three offense in the NCAA at one point.
Kelly spent the entire season on the practice squad last season, which doesn’t look good for him and his development. Andrus Peat was out for several games last season and Larry Warford struggles with his weight and Kelly still was never signed off the practice squad to help add depth.
With the additions of Calvin Throckmorton and Jordan Steckler to the team, Kelly could easily be the odd man out in the backup lineman rotation. But, at the same time, Kelly could find a way to crack the rotation.
