Another of David Gettleman's bargain basement signings in the defensive backfield, Roman Harper will slot in at strong safety and perform a similar role to that of Mike Mitchell last season as a blitzer and downhill force against the run. Harper has always been a consistent fantasy safety, but his numbers fell off a cliff last year with the Saints' use of Kenny Vaccaro and Malcolm Jenkins. Harper may be a liability in coverage in Carolina at times, but used in the right way he can come close to Mitchell's 45-15 line from 2013, putting him in the solid DB3 with upside range. (May 13)
