Saints selected seven players in 2018 draft

See the best images of the undrafted free agents taking the field for New Orleans Saints Rookie Mini Camp on May 11-13, 2018.

The New Orleans Saints added seven rookies in the 2018 NFL Draft: defensive end Marcus Davenport, wide receiver Tre'Quan Smith, tackle Rick Leonard, defensive back Natrell Jamerson, defensive back Kamrin Moore, running back Boston Scott and center Will Clapp.

"They've had a week of lifting/conditioning (followed by the OTAs). They're behind and we talk to them about it," Saints Coach Sean Payton said earlier this summer, "They're behind physically a lot of them are just from the schedule they were on prior to the combine and then mentally, so it doesn't happen overnight, but you're looking for them to learn the splits, to understand the coverages, to understand the calls and to get in their playbooks and really dive into what we're doing."

Fans can keep an eye out for the rookies during New Orleans Saints Training Camp beginning on July 26. The first open practice is Saturday, July 28. Sign up to the Saints wait list to get early access to training camp tickets.
