New Orleans Saints OTA Schedule 2014

Stacy Revere

Here are a bunch of questions fans will be asking as the Saints start the first of ten OTAs today.

Just as many of you are back to work following the long Memorial Day weekend, so are the Saints. Today the team will start their 10 days of OTA workouts. They will be held May 27-29, June 3-5, and June 16-19.

During this period, no activities may be held on weekends. There will be no live contact permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted. One-on-one drills are not allowed. Players cannot work for longer than six hours, and practices are limited to two hours, with coaches able to provide instruction. All OTAs are voluntary.

Sandwiched in this period is also a mandatory minicamp for veteran players that the Saints will hold June 10-12.

Media will have access during that aforementioned three-day minicamp plus the Thursday, June 5 and June 18 OTAs. That is all. So we won't get any first-hand media reports from OTAs this week.

It's way too early to get real answers to these question, but here are a few things we'll want to keep our eye on during these workouts. Feel free to discuss these and more in the comment section below.

Quarterback: Does Ryan Griffin have a future as a backup with the Saints? Does Logan Kilgore have a snowball's chance in hell of making this team?

Running Back: Can Derrick Strozier or Tim Flanders continue the trend of undrafted free agent running backs to make the team?

Fullback: What kind of role can we expect Erik Lorig to have as a fullback?

Wide Receiver: Will someone step up and take that third or fourth spot on the depth chart?

Tight end: Is there anyone worthwhile behind Jimmy Graham and Benjamin Watson?

Offensive Line: Does Tim Lelito have what it takes to be the starting center? Will Terron Armstead pick up where he left off and continue to improve?

Cornerback: Does Champ Bailey have anything left in the tank? How is Patrick Robinson recovering from his knee injury?

Safety: Is free agent signee Marcus Ball any good?

Linebacker: How is Victor Butler recovering from his knee injury? What can we expect from Khairi Fortt?

Defensive Line: Do any of the undrafted rookies (George Uko, Lawrence Virgil, Moses McCray) have a chance to crack the roster?

Kicker: Is Derek Dimke the future field goal kicker for the Saints?
