Wide Receivers: Marques Colston, Lance Moore, Devery Henderson, Joe Morgan, Courtney Roby, Nick Toon
PUP (Physically Unable to Perform) List: Adrian Arrington
Colston, Moore and Henderson are the locks here. Morgan helped his cause greatly with a long touchdown reception last week that showed off his top-notch speed.
After that it is an up-and-down, injury-filled list of players to fill the depth chart. Injuries to Arrington, Toon and Andy Tanner has caused this race to tighten up over the past couple weeks. Arrington's injury will probably linger into the preseason, so they will start him off on the PUP List after his great start to the preseason.
Roby and Toon should get the last spots due to Tanner's ankle injury, and Tanner will end up on the practice squad if another team doesn't snatch him up.
Tight Ends: Jimmy Graham, David Thomas, Daniel Graham
Jimmy Graham and Thomas are locks here. They have looked great this preseason, and Thomas appears to have no lingering symptoms from those concussions that ended his year early last season.
The last spot is very interesting. There are three guys for one roster spot, and it could be the newbie, Daniel Graham, to grab it.
Michael Higgins and Derek Schouman also are viable candidates, but Higgins will probably land on the practice squad again for one more year. Schouman just doesn't have the championship and veteran leadership that Graham has, and that's what the Saints were looking for.
