Despite signings early in free agency, the Saints still have needs at edge rusher, offensive tackle, tight end, and wide receiver. It is too early to predict who they will select at the bottom of round two at No. 62 but New Orleans still may make some moves in free agency which will affect their draft selection.

Here are players to watch for that late second round selection:

Edge rusher: Chase Winovich DE 6-3 255 Michigan; Germaine Pratt OLB 6-2 245 North Carolina St.
Offensive line: Michael Deiter 6-6 312 Wisconsin (can play all the offensive line positions); Yodny Cajuste OT 6-4 315 West Virginia; Kaleb McGary OT 6-6 312 Washington
Tight end: Josh Oliver 6-5 250 San Jose St., Issac Nauta 6-4 246 Georgia; (Note: The Saints would probably have to trade up a bit to select the local product Irv Smith Jr. 6-4 245 Alabama)
Wide receiver: Parris Campbell 6-0 210 Ohio St. (Noe: He ran 4.31 at the combine. I think New Orleans will look at other positions first, but if they feel they could get another wide receiver in the second round like they did with Michael Thomas, the front office may go that route).
