The New Orleans Saints have only five draft picks this year. But throw in their "redshirt rookies" and this year's freshman class will actually be pretty loaded.

Three of the Saints' 2012 picks - fourth-round receiver Nick Toon, sixth-round guard Andrew Tiller and seventh-round offensive tackle Marcel Jones - spent all of last season on injured reserve. But all three are back to 100 percent health as the team is set to begin its offseason conditioning program Monday.

General Manager Mickey Loomis is optimistic about the role all three of them can play this year. For one thing, they all showed some impressive glimpses last summer before getting hurt. For another, the second NFL season is when most young players take their biggest leap.
