Updated New Orleans Saints 53-man roster projection after second preseason game

The first two New Orleans Saints preseason games are in the books, and we’ve learned a lot from their performance in exhibition matchups. So how does it change the outlook in our 53-man roster projections? What about the practice squad?

That’s what we’re working to resolve today, going through the roster by each position group and making our best guess at which players might make the cut next week. There’s still time for some guys on the bubble to strengthen their case, and others are still on the fringe.

For the practice squad, six spots are reserved for veteran players with two or more years of experience in the NFL; the other ten slots are for rookies and those with just one accrued season.

Wide receivers (5, plus 3)

Smith hasn’t played a single snap through two preseason games or practiced in weeks after suffering an injury, and we know exactly how limited his skills set is. That’s…
