NewOrleansSaints.com believes Tim Lelito will compete for the starting left guard spot.

Lelito has mostly played center the last two seasons, but he will focus on guard after the Saints traded for Max Unger. Lelito may be given the first shot to earn the left guard spot, but whoever loses the right tackle battle between Zach Strief and rookie Andrus Peat remains the favorite to end up with the job.

Saints OL Tim Lelito is expected to compete for the starting left guard job.

Lelito has been limited to spot duty at center the last two seasons. The Saints are moving him to guard after trading for Max Unger. With rookie Andrus Peat the favorite to start at right tackle, Zach Strief could also be an option on the inside.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune expects second-year pro Tim Lelito to be the Saints' starting center despite the signing of Jonathan Goodwin.

Columnist and former beat writer Jeff Duncan believes Goodwin "looks more like insurance than viable competition." Lelito's lone two rookie starts came at right guard, so the Saints would be placing a ton of faith in a neophyte snapper.

Coach Sean Payton confirmed Tim Lelito will have a chance to win the starting center job.

Brian de la Puente, the Saints' starter for the last three seasons, remains an unsigned free agent. If he ends up signing elsewhere, Lelito is the in-house replacement option. The 2013 UDFA made two starts at right guard as a rookie, handling himself well.
