Our army of reporters has exhaustively covered the New Orleans Saints' organized team activities this offseason and minicamp workouts so it's likely every player on the 89-man roster has been discussed or mentioned at some point. Some players, though, are more high profile than others. Here are a few that might be flying under the radar that have stood out to me during workouts: 1. Corey White: All eyes have been on rookie safety Kenny Vacarro and free agent cornerback Keenan Lewis in the secondary but the second-year corner from Samford has looked extremely polished so far. He's carrying himself more confidently in his second season and is going to be in the mix for playing time at cornerback. White has the size and physical strength new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan likes in his defensive backs. He's looked as good as any defensive back on the roster this offseason. 2. A.J. Davis: Another young cornerback the Saints like. Saints officials were high on Davis during training camp but an injury derailed his rookie season. He's healthy again and definitely looks the part at 6-0, 183 pounds. Right now he's running on the third team defense but he looks like an excellent developmental prospect. 3. Eric Olsen: A former sixth-round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, Olsen has quietly developed into the Saints' top interior backup lineman. Currently he's working as the backup center behind Brian de la Puente. Essentially, he's one snap away from starting at center or either guard spot.
Some New Orleans Saints no one is talking about
