New Orleans Saints
On April 29, 2013, he signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent. In the third game of the season, against the Arizona Cardinals, Lelito started at right guard in place of longtime starter Jahri Evans, who had a hamstring injury and missed his first start in 122 games.
Lelito was named back-up center to Jonathan Goodwin for the 2014 season. When Goodwin injured his ankle in week 3 against the Minnesota Vikings he came on as a substitute and, due to the ensuing miscommunication, his first snap missed quarterback Drew Brees for an 18-yard loss but he played the rest of the game without incident as the Saints won 20–9.
