In the Sean Payton-Drew Brees era, Mickey Loomis and his team of scouts and evaluators have done a great job of finding quality talent in the later rounds and through college free agency.
Pierre Thomas is the preeminent talent they have signed and developed, but not the only one. Jonathan Casillas is another member of the current squad who has excelled with the New Orleans Saints after having been picked up as a college free agent.
With a poor draft, the Saints are going to have to hope that this year's undrafted class reaps fruit; otherwise, the 2012 draft may be seen as a complete waste in a couple years (then again, Nick Toon may develop so well that it won't really matter).
Here are a few prospects the Saints brought into camp who could very well make the team and contribute in the coming years.
