New Orleans Saints Undrafted Free Agents: Need-to-Know Info for Every Signee
Jonathan Bachman/Associated Press

The 2014 NFL draft has come and gone. The New Orleans Saints entered the weekend with seven picks. By the end of the weekend, they had made just six selections.

They traded their first pick (No. 27 overall) and third (No. 91 overall) to the Arizona Cardinals for the 20th selection overall. With that pick, the Saints famously took Oregon State playmaker Brandin Cooks.

The Saints addressed a second "need" in selecting Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste in the second round.

On Saturday, the Saints showed up and made their selections like a drunk guy throwing darts: They were erratic and all over the board.

They drafted four players coming off major injuries in the last two years. Fourth- and sixth-rounders Khairi Fortt and Tavon Rooks, respectively, were very questionable selections. The fifth-round selections—Vinnie Sunseri and Ronald Powell—were nowhere near the head-scratchers the other two were and actually figure to present tremendous value for the Saints.

No center was selected, and no developmental quarterback or tight end, either. Those are three primary areas to watch for this evening and into Sunday as the Saints make their pitch to undrafted free agents.
