Even After A Successful Draft, Saints Have Concerns

Receiver Lance Moore is one of a number of Saints players in free-agency limbo.
In a normal year, the New Orleans Saints' brain trust could walk away from a draft seemingly as successful as this one, and feel giddy.

Then they walked next door, stared at the depth chart posted on the squad-room wall and saw uncertainty at nearly every position on the roster other than quarterback.
