Larry HolderOf the Saints rookie players since 2006, Pierre Thomas & Jermon Bushrod are notables who didn't receive combine invites. I'd say nice finds.

Larry HolderAdd Chris Ivory as a notable Saints rookie who didn't receive combine invite. This one should be no surprise considering road he traveled.
