When the Saints announced their 53-man roster to begin the 2013 season, there were not many players as humbled as Tim Lelito. The undrafted free agent offensive lineman out of Division II Grand Valley State survived the cut and made the NFL roster.

Lelio appeared in all 16 games during his rookie season, even earning two starts when he filled in for an injured Jahri Evans at right guard.

With the Saints allowing Brian de la Puente to sign a free agent contract with Chicago, Lelito is poised to take over as the Saints starting center.

Participating at a Saints Junior Training Camp at Airline Park Academy, Lelito talks about the opportunity for a starting role.
