Undrafted free agents (UDFAs) have been a huge part of the New Orleans Saints success.

Last year, the Saints found return specialist/wide receiver Deonte Harris from Division II Assumption College as a UDFA.

After earning a spot on the 53 man roster, Harris shined in his rookie year, earning All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors as a returner.

New Orleans Pro Bowl kicker Wil Lutz, defensive tackle Shy Tuttle, tight end Josh Hill, special team aces Justin Hardee and J.T. Gray are a number of big contributors on the Saints roster who were UDFAs.

As soon as the NFL Draft ended, Saints GM Mickey Loomis was hard at work, agreeing to terms with a number of UDFAs.
