Saints News, 8/11/15: Young Receivers Listed Prominently on Saints' First Unofficial Depth Chart

New, comments

From Mike Triplett at ESPN.com: There aren’t many surprises on the offensive side of the ball on the New Orleans Saints’ first unofficial depth chart. The thing that struck me most, though, is that second-year receivers Brandon Coleman and Seantavius Jones already are listed ahead of some more experienced veterans. Coleman is listed as a second-teamer and Jones a third-teamer. That matches what we’ve seen in practice, but it’s telling that the Saints aren’t listing them lower while they pay their dues.
