The Saints selected Haener in the fourth round of the 2023 NFL Draft, 127th overall.

Haener is a very small quarterback (6-feet, 207 pounds), but in a league where Bryce Young goes first overall it should also make sense for a player like Haener to go in the fourth. The Fresno State product was a high-volume, high-efficiency passer for multiple seasons in college, throwing for 9,013 yards, 67 touchdowns and 17 interceptions in his final 29 games. At the combine Haener showed plus athleticism by logging a 35-inch vertical and 7.01-second three-cone drill, seemingly making him a quality depth project for the Saints.

Takes home Senior Bowl MVP honors

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-02-06

Haener completed 12 of 19 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's Senior Bowl.

The quarterback took home MVP honors and threw the game's only touchdown -- a 44-yard connection to Stanford's Michael Wilson. Haener (6-1, 200) doesn't project as a first-round quarterback in this year's class but could go early Day 3 similar to Bailey Zappe in 2022. The Fresno State product was a three-year starter for the Bulldogs and turned in his best season in 2021 with 4,096 passing yards and 33 passing touchdowns on 8.4 YPA. An ankle injury shortened his 2022 campaign, but Haener managed to return and lead the team to a Mountain West title. He doesn't have standout tools but is an accurate passer and a good decision maker. In the right offense, Haener could be a serviceable backup.
