New Orleans Saints 53 Man Roster Projection

It has been such an odd off-season because of COVID-19. Instead of your usual 7 different 53 man roster predictions we are just sticking with 2 now. Here is our final 53 man roster projections.

Special teams:  

  • Wil Lutz 
  • Thomas Morstead 
  • Zach Wood

Well here we are again these are were pretty much locks to begin with and nothing has changed. 


  • Drew Brees 
  • Taysom Hill 
  • Jameis Winston 

When Tommy Stevens switched to Tight End the QB group was all but set as Nick Underhill has mentioned numerous times while we never got to really see Taysom vs Jamies still unbelievable we have all 3 in one room 

Running Backs: 4

  • Alvin Kamara 
  • Latavius Murray 
  • Ty Montgomery 
  • Mike Burton 

The addition of Montgomery is still one of the best under the radar moves all offseason AK will get that new extension soon as he should. With 16 pratice squad guys now the new norm Tony Jones Jr. Could certainly make the squad 


Wide Receivers: 6

  • Michael Thomas 
  • Emmanuel Sanders 
  • Tre’Quan Smith 
  • Deonte Harris
  • Bennie Fowler Jr. 
  • Emmanuel Butler 

This group is still gonna be a question if you will after Thomas, Sanders, and Smith (who has had a real nice camp) Deonte Harris looks to have a much bigger role in the offense this year after Drew Brees basically got Bennie Fowler Jr. a job looked like he had a job secured he along with Emmanual Butler have looked impressive throughout camp. Callaway and Johnson should easily make the pratice squad 

Tight End: 3

  • Jared Cook 
  • Josh Hill
  • Adam Trautman 

Uh yeah nothing new here, I will say Tommy Stevens should get A LOT of credit for switching and actually looking pretty well

Offensive Line: 8

  • Erick McCoy 
  • Cesar Ruiz 
  • Terron Armstead 
  • Andrus Peat
  • Ryan Ramczyk
  • Nick Easton
  • Will Clapp
  • Patrick Omameh  
  • James Hurst *

Letting go of Throckmorton was not easy, but with James Hurst missing the first 4 games because of a PED violation they could hold onto him for a few games this group is still very solid and versatile which will be a great thing going forward.  

Defensive line: 9

  • Marcus Davenport 
  • Cameron Jordan 
  • Jadeveon Clowney*
  • Sheldon Rankins 
  • David Onyemata 
  • Malcom Brown
  • Trey Hendrickson  
  • Shy Tuttle 
  • Carl Granderson

With Nader Mirfiq’s ground-breaking news yesterday on Jadaveon Clowney (which hes been on that story since the spring) I decided to let go of vets Mario Edwards Jr. and Margus Hunt and kept Carl Granderson who has had a really strong camp 

Linebacker: 6

  • Alex Anzalone 
  • Zack Baun 
  • Demario Davis 
  • Craig Robertson 
  • Kaden Ellis 
  • Joe Bachie 

I really like this group still full of veterans and young guys who can just play ball 

Cornerback: 6

  • Marshon Lattimore
  • Janoris Jenkins
  • P.J. Williams 
  • Patrick Robinson 
  • Justin Hardee
  • Keith Washington Jr. 

The cornerback group in particular has had the best camp to me all of these guys have balled out PJ Prob and Keith Washington have all had a excellent camp along with Lattimore and Jenkins who look just as advertised  

Safety: 5

  • Malcolm Jenkins 
  • Marcus Williams 
  • C.J. Gardner- Johnson
  • J.T. Gray 
  • D.J. Swearinger 

No changes here still a very deep and very good group of players here.
