Sean Payton values this process of the draft. His team had 7 undrafted rookie free agents in 2013, and the current roster is littered with players that made the team in years past after going undrafted. Moments after the draft finished, players started tweeting about their decisions. Here is a list of players that have agreed to sign undrafted rookie deals with the Saints. I will try and update the list as it comes out.
