Best Undrafted Free Agent Signing: New Orleans Saints: OLB Chase Thomas
Thomas was viewed as a second-day prospect for a lot of the draft process. He had a solid 2012 season which wasn't as impressive as his junior season. Thomas stock was hurt by a disappointing Senior Bowl as he moved from playing outside linebacker in a 3-4 to a 4-3 defense. Still, Thomas has consistently been an impact pass-rusher over the past two years with a total of 16 sacks.
The Saints are transitioning to a 3-4 defense, and Thomas could compete for playing time immediately with Martez Wilson and Junior Galette. Thomas isn't the biggest or the fastest, but he is a tough football player. It wouldn't be surprising if Thomas makes the team and provides an impact in 2013. Honorable mentions
