The Rundown: Taking stock of the Saints’ rookie class and what they can become at the midway point of the season

The New Orleans rookie class has moments where you see the potential.
 
Cesar Ruiz will clear the way on an inside zone run, and you start to envision a future where he's anchoring the interior offensive line, or Adam Trautman will get open on a double move and score a touchdown, showing how athletic he can be.
 
But the moments are spaced apart, part of a larger picture that has not yet come into focus. This draft class deserves patience, especially with how this offseason played out, especially when they're on a roster talented enough to where mistakes and growth don't have to occur in public. Still, sometimes it's hard to keep sight of the three-year plan.
