The 2018 NFL Draft is complete and the New Orleans Saints have already landed a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends, and sometimes even sooner, and the moves became official this week.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The prospects all went undrafted for a reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. And sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Saints have signed below
J.T. Barrett, QB, Ohio State
Daronte Bouldin, OL, Ole Miss
A.J. Hantak, LS, Eastern Illinois
Cory Helms, OL, South Carolina
Jeromy Irwin, OT, Colorado
Colton Jumper, LB, Tennessee
Keith Kirkwood, WR, Temple
David Knevel, OL, Nebraska
Henry Mondeaux, DL, Oregon
Cameron Serigne, TE, Wake Forest
Taylor Stallworth, DT, South Carolina
Linden Stephens, CB, Cincinnati
Deon Yelder, DT, Western Kentucky
It's a good-sized group for the Saints.
Perhaps the most notable player on the list is Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett, who struggled as a downfield passer in college but is known to be accurate underneath and a solid athlete. He also holds the Big Ten's career record for touchdowns.
It's also clear that New Orleans is looking for depth along both the offensive and defensive lines as eight of their 13 signings were linemen.
