A breakdown of the New Orleans Saints' 2018 draft class and its progress after three weeks of training camp:
Marcus Davenport, DE, Round 1: Davenport should make his preseason debut Saturday after he missed more than two weeks with an unspecified injury. The 14th overall pick in the draft out of Texas-San Antonio has been a bit of a raw developmental project as the Saints expected. But they have credited him for gaining weight and strength this offseason, and for showing growth both on the field and in the classroom.
Tre'Quan Smith, WR, Round 3: The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder from Central Florida has flashed as much as anyone in Saints camp, with big plays in both practices and preseason games. He still needs seasoning from an alignment and assignment standpoint. But his combo of size, speed and hands will get him on the field early.
Rick Leonard, OT, Round 4: The big 6-foot-7, 311-pounder has battled inconsistency so far and doesn't look ready to compete for a key role just yet. But the Saints obviously see potential, based on the investment they made, so they'll likely give him time to develop.
Natrell Jamerson, CB, Round 5: He's in the mix for the No. 4 cornerback job, where the Saints decided to play him even though he also has experience as a safety. Jamerson (6 feet, 198-pounds) has shown both highs and lows, as expected. His special teams ability could be an even bigger asset.
Kamrin Moore, S, Round 6: On the flip side, the Saints decided to play the 5-11, 200-pound Moore at safety, even though he has also played corner in the past. He missed time with a minor injury and is a little buried on the depth chart for now. But special teams ability could also get him on the field.
Boston Scott, RB, Round 6: The Saints like what they have seen from the 5-foot-6, 203-pound dynamo, who has flashed his power and elusiveness as a runner. He seems to be behind veteran Jonathan Williams in the battle to replace Mark Ingram as the No. 2 running back during Ingram's four-week suspension. And he probably won't win the top kick-return job. But he should make the roster as a backup in both areas.
Will Clapp, G/C, Round 7: Clapp has made a strong first impression with the Saints while getting occasional first-team snaps because of injuries elsewhere. They like the 6-foot-5, 311-pounder more as a guard than center so far, but his ability to play both could help land him on the active roster on game days.
