The Senior Bowl can be viewed as a somewhat inconsequential event. Seniors who are attempting to add a bit more value to their stock normally suit up and attempt to play their hardest. Although on some occasions, the very best players aren’t participating. But, by and large, the Senior Bowl has produced a few Hall of Famers at the next level.

Phillip Rivers, LaDainian Tomlinson, Terry Bradshaw, and even Dan Marino have played and balled out.

This year, the Senior Bowl featured several players who were deemed not good enough to make the first-round cut in the NFL Draft and an assortment of other players who still have plenty of question marks surrounding them.

New Orleans is in a long rebuild whether they like it or not. With the 18th overall pick in the first round and a few more littered throughout the draft, the Saints need to find themselves a diamond in the rough. Did anyone impress the franchise enough to take a chance on them? In our opinion, yes. We’ll tell you which players the Saints should consider drafting following the Senior Bowl.
