Saints show off undrafted rookies


The Saints were missing some draft picks this year, thanks to the trade that brought the Mark Ingram and the bounty punishment.

They compensated in part by signing a whopping 18 undrafted free agents.

They are: LB Kadarron Anderson (Furman), LB Stephen Johnson (Temple); LB Aaron Tevis (Boise State); WR Malcolm Beyah (Middle Tennessee State); WR Chris Givens (Miami of Ohio); WR Kevin Hardy (Citadel); DE Braylon Broughton (TCU), DE/DT Tyrunn Walker (Tulsa), TE Jake Byrne (Wisconsin), RB Travaris Cadet (Appalachian State), DB A.J. Davis (Jacksonville State); C Brian Folkerts (Washburn); S Jose Gumbs (Monmouth); S Jerico Nelson (Arkansas); S Johnny Thomas (Oklahoma State); T Dan Hoch (Missouri); T Aderious Simmons (Arizona State); and KR Laron Scott (Georgia Southern).

The Saints, who drafted players from Regina and Samford, continued with the small-school vibe by signing guys from Furman, Middle Tennessee State, Miami of Ohio, Jacksonville State, Washburn, Monmouth, and Georgia Southern.
