The Rest: Braxton Hoyett, Jalen Dalton, Sharif Finch

These three guys have the toughest fight when it comes to sticking on the roster after the draft and into the summer.

Braxton Hoyett went undrafted out of Mississippi State and played in one game for the Chiefs in 2020 before joining the Saints last year where he also appeared in one game. He also spent time with the Titans but didn’t make it out of the preseason on their roster. Hoyett definitely has a lot to prove if he wants to remain in New Orleans.

Jalen Dalton has been with the Saints since 2020 but hasn’t seen the field. He’ll have an uphill battle toward sticking with the team, especially once the draft is over and new guys have joined the team.

Sharif Finch went undrafted out of Temple and has played for the Titans, Jets, and Saints since the 2018 season. He appeared in one game for NOLA last year and recorded five tackles.

If new defensive linemen join this team between now and the conclusion of the draft, these three guys have the greatest risk of being cut.
