    New Orleans Saints:

    The Saints showed promise during the 2017 Draft with 3 players picked in the top 5 rounds and have a reasonable amount of white players on the 53 man roster with 18. It looks like there will be 5 starters on Offense (Drew Brees, Coby Fleener, Ryan Ramczyk, Zach Strief and Josh Lebibius) and 6 when John Kuhn starts at FB. On Defense the Saints actually have 3 Linebackers on the roster with 2 Starters (AJ Klein and Rookie Alex Anzalone). Although not starters, there are 2 Defensive Lineman to watch, Trey Hendrickson and Mitchel Loewen). Interestingly the Saints have 4 mixed players (Austin Carr, Daniel Lasco, Tyeler Davidson and Andrus Peat). The 53 breaks down as:

    QB- Drew Brees, Chase Daniel and Taysom Hill (Practice Squad)
    FB- Kuhn
    TE- Fleener and Josh Hill
    OL- Lebibeus, Bryce Harris, Strief, Ramczyk and Max Unger (currently hurt)

    DL- Loewen and Hendrickson
    LB- Anzalone, Klein and Nate Stupar

    Specialists: LS Jon Dorenbos, K Wil Lutz and P Thomas Morestead

    Practice Squad- Jack Allen OL, Dan Arnold WR, Bryan Braman LB, John Phillips TE, Martin Wallace OL

    Nice job Rajun!

    I'm shocked to see a WR who flew under even our radar here at CF. Dan Arnold is from tiny Wisconsin-Platteville but the dude is tall and fast. 6'-6" guy who ran track. Would love to see what he could do if given an opportunity.

    Nice work Rajun. According to one roster, Dan Arnold is on an IR list and Max McCaffrey is on the practice squad. Arnold was signed in June, participated in an OTA and was waived with an injury designation. I was bummed when that happened, glad to see the Saints have not parted ways with the talented receiver. I wanted WR Jake Lampman to at least make the PS, not to be. His highlight video is enjoyable, that's for sure.

    Just read that Jon Dorenbos needs heart surgery and his career is probably over.
