Saints’ slew of early draft picks addresses numerous needs Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:49 PM


By Brett Martel | AP

METAIRIE, La. — Saints coach Sean Payton and general manager Mickey Loomis stockpiled six picks in the first three rounds of the 2017 NFL draft and filled nearly every need they had — even if not quite in the order of their priorities.

While the Saints didn’t address their anemic pass rush until their sixth overall pick late in the third round, they added two potential starting defensive backs with their first three picks in the opening two rounds, which should help a secondary that allowed more yards passing than any other team last season.

New Orleans didn’t entirely neglect its league-leading offense, either, bringing in more protection for 38-year-old quarterback Drew Brees and adding a quick, dynamic ball carrier who could restore to Payton’s offensive scheme the type of threats previously presented by Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles.

“It was one of the more interesting drafts we’ve been in with some of the selections at the top of the draft and kind of how it unfolded,” said Payton, who has coached the Saints since 2006. “There is always a little bit of unpredictability with regards to what certain teams may or may not do.”...

Underhill: Saints take patient, measured approach to the draft Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:39 PM


By Nick Underhill

The magnets were on the board.

The first two, which had the names of Myles Garrett and Solomon Thomas, disappeared at the top of the draft, nearly as expected.

The third magnet had the name of former Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore.

One member of the Saints front office called Lattimore his dream pick before the draft but noted it was unreasonable to expect him to fall to No. 11, the Saints' first pick in the NFL draft. It seemed more likely that someone else from the cloud, which included quarterback Patrick Mahomes, among many others, would end up being the pick.

But then Lattimore started falling Thursday night as offensive players were unexpectedly selected within the first 10 picks. New Orleans began to believe it was possible to land him.

The Saints started making calls to inquire about the cost of moving up. The price would have meant surrendering one of their other picks within the first three rounds of the draft. With other holes to fill, that was more than they wanted to pay...

Sean Payton Recaps Draft Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:35 PM


New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton
Post-Draft Press Conference
Saturday, April 29, 2017


Opening statement:
“Look right now the process for the scouts and the coaches is getting the board organized like we would always do for free agency. It really is a positon stack if you look at the board. Offensive players over to defensive players. In the event a player is not drafted trying to prioritize who it is you want to sign first. You guys have heard me talk about it before. There is a lot going on in a short amount of time between the agent, the prospect, our coach, our scout that knows the player. Mickey (Loomis), Khai (Harley), myself, Jeff (Ireland) really it is all hands on deck for the hour or two hours after the draft. That is kind of where we are at with our preparation.”


How much do you think you improved your defense?
“Well we are going to find out. We’d like to think that we have. I’m quite certain we have, to what degree we’ll get a better feel for. We have hit a number of positons. I heard you talking with Mickey (Loomis) yesterday, a lot of times your priority or a must might not come to you in the first round. Cornerback was a must positon so we were able to do that with a player that we’re excited about and managing that board and making sure you’re receiving the value is extremely important. I think Jeff Ireland and his staff, the scouts have done a great job and Jeff is someone who’s very experienced at this process and I think this is his third draft here with us and he’s been a tremendous asset. We’re excited about the way things fell. I know most teams are. They always are at this time of the year, but looking down at the list and just seeing where and how we were able to acquire these guys. The (Alvin) Kamara pick for instance essentially this year’s three is worth next year’s two. It was pretty easy...

Saints select Miami defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad in the sixth round Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 07:27 PM


By Herbie Teope, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints used their final draft pick in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft with the selection of Miami defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad (196th overall).

The 6-foot-3, 253-pound Muhammad had seven sacks on his career as a Hurricane, but also dealt with suspensions.

According to NFL.com, Muhammad was suspended for the 2014 season after being involved in an altercation after the team's spring game. He was then dismissed from the program while being part of an NCAA investigation along with teammate Jermaine Grace for allegedly receiving illicit benefits from a car rental company.

In two seasons at Miami, Muhammad totaled 60 tackles (39 solo), a pass defensive and a forced fumble to go along with the seven sacks.

The New Orleans Saints wrapped up their draft on Saturday by selecting Miami defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad in the sixth round, adding a developmental pass-rush prospect to their ranks.

Muhammad, a 6-foot-3, 253-pounder who played at Miami, saw his career with the Hurricanes derailed by off-the-field infractions.

Saints finally add pass rusher, six picks into their draft class Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 03:19 PM


By Larry Holder, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

Well, you can't say the New Orleans Saints neglected to draft a pass rusher.

They waited until their sixth pick of their 2017 draft class to select one, but they got him.

The Saints drafted Florida Atlantic defensive end Trey Hendrickson with the 103rd overall pick Friday night in the NFL Draft. His measurables and statistics should give Who Dats a reason to be intrigued.

The 6-foot-4, 266-pound defender tallied 23 sacks the past two seasons, including 13.5 sacks in 2015. He might also be a nice pickup for special teams after blocking four kicks last season, which was tied for tops in the nation.

Before we dub Hendrickson as Reggie White, here's how NFL.com described the former Owls standout: "More of a second-effort sack man than a quick-win specialist, but he did show some edge rushing ability at the Shrine Game practices that didn't flash as often on tape. His lack of length on the edge will be a turnoff for some, but he flashes enough to warrant a third-day draft selection as a backup 4-3 defensive end who could continue to develop as a rusher with additional work."..

Saints' Mickey Loomis looks to make most of Saturday with one selection remaining in draft Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 03:17 PM


By Herbie Teope, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune


The New Orleans Saints are prepared to sit on the sidelines Saturday for much of the action during the fourth through seventh rounds of the NFL Draft.

After packaging a deal, which including a seventh-round pick (229th overall), with the San Francisco 49ers to move up in the third round Friday night, the Saints are left with a sixth-round pick (196th overall).

"Well, there is a lot of waiting, which we are not real good at that," general manager Mickey Loomis said with a chuckle Friday night. "We will probably overanalyze everything because we are going to have a lot of time."

The Saints, of course, could elect to utilize the down periods to discuss a potential deal with other teams to acquire additional draft picks for Saturday.

But Loomis said that scenario isn't likely to occur after the Saints included a 2018 second-round pick in the trade with the 49ers to move up in the third round....

Saints utilize patient approach before securing pass rusher Trey Hendrickson Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 03:16 PM


By Herbie Teope, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune


It was no secret the New Orleans Saints were on a mission to find a pass rusher in the NFL Draft to complement Cameron Jordan.

Entering the third round Friday night, the Saints still needed to address a glaring need and eventually selected Florida Atlantic defensive end Trey Hendrickson (103rd overall).

The Saints, of course, had three picks in the third round and used the first two selections on running back Alvin Kamara (67th overall) and linebacker Alex Anzalone (76th overall) with pass rushers Jordan Willis, Derek Rivers, Tarell Basham, Dawuane Smoot, Chris Wormley still on the board.

While there may have been some head scratching for those hoping for a bigger splash with a pass rusher, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis emphasized Friday night that the team was not ignoring the position.

Instead, the flow of the draft proved a contributing factor...

Trey Hendrickson's gamble to play at Florida Atlantic pays off with third-round selection to Saints Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 03:14 PM


By Joel A. Erickson

Trey Hendrickson could have chosen a bigger school.

If he'd stayed at tight end, the position he played as a senior at Apopka (Fla.) High, Hendrickson had offers to play his college ball at places like Illinois, Missouri and Arkansas.

For Hendrickson, the position he was playing mattered more than playing in front of power-conference crowds, and he chose the local option from among the Conference USA offers he had to play defensive end.

"There is nothing I love more than to sack the quarterback," Hendrickson said. "That was the first time I left the nest so being an Owl was a really exciting thing for me."

Hendrickson's gamble paid off. Devastating as a pass rusher for Florida Atlantic, Hendrickson's 6-foot-4, 266-pound frame produced 23 sacks in his last two seasons and earned him a third-round selection from the New Orleans Saints in a crowded class of edge rushers.

A lot of those edge rushers played at the kind of power-conference schools that usually move the needle...

Saints had good draft, but are they too hard to please at edge rusher? Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 03:12 PM


By Mike Triplett | ESPN Staff Writer

METAIRIE, La. -- I believe in the idea of staying true to your draft board.

I appreciate the wisdom in not overpaying for free agents.

And I totally get the idea that a right tackle can be more valuable to a team than the guy he’s blocking.

But I also feel the exasperation of the Who Dat Nation.

This is two straight years now where the New Orleans Saints have stated the obvious -- that an edge rusher ranked as a “must” for their struggling defense heading into the offseason. And this is two straight years when the Saints have failed to satisfy that need.

The Saints didn’t draft an edge rusher until they snagged Florida Atlantic’s Trey Hendrickson at the end of the third round. And the only one they signed in free agency was former Arizona Cardinals rotational backup Alex Okafor....

Saints add safety, trade up for running back in NFL draft Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 12:19 AM


AP | USA Today

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — The New Orleans Saints added a ball-hawking safety and surprisingly traded up to take a running back during the second day of the NFL draft.

The Saints also acquired a pass-rusher for a defense that ranked near the bottom in sacks last season — albeit at the end of the third round, and with their sixth pick overall.

New Orleans used their second-round pick on Utah safety Marcus Williams, who has intercepted 10 passes over his last two seasons. The Saints then traded a 2018 second-round pick and this year's seventh rounder to San Francisco so they could draft Tennessee running back Alvin Kamara early in the third round.

The trade increased the number of Saints third-round picks to three. With their final two picks of the round, they added versatile Florida linebacker Alex Anzalone and Florida Atlantic defensive end Trey Hendrickson.

The 6-foot-1, 202-pound Williams, picked 42nd overall on Friday night, intercepted five passes in 11 games last season and also had five interceptions in 2015, when he was selected first-team All-Pac-12.

New Orleans Saints' 2017 draft picks: Analysis for every selection Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 12:17 AM


By Mike Triplett - ESPN Staff Writer

...Round 2, No. 42: Marcus Williams, S, Utah

My take: It’s too bad the Saints weren’t able to find a pass-rusher with their top three picks in this draft. That remains their most glaring need after they added just one rotational DE in Alex Okafor during free agency. But I can’t blame the Saints for staying true to their draft board -- and Williams is absolutely a worthy selection at No. 42 who fills a need for a pass defense that ranked 32nd in the NFL last year.
The Saints added another defensive back to its draft class in safety Marcus Williams. Russ Isabella/USA Today Sports

The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder said he takes pride in forcing turnovers, which he did at a high rate in college (10 interceptions over the past two years, four forced fumbles in three years). He mostly played single-high safety and "center field," but he occasionally played down closer to the line of scrimmage. And the Saints will have the luxury of finding a role that fits him since they’re deep at safety now with veterans Kenny Vaccaro and Rafael Bush and last year’s second-round pick, Vonn Bell...

Mickey Loomis: Saints would have taken Marshon Lattimore over Patrick Mahomes if both available Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 12:11 AM


By Joel A. Erickson

An offhand comment by PGA golfer Ryan Palmer on Friday sparked a round of speculation that the New Orleans Saints coveted Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes at No. 11 instead of Ohio State cornerback Marshon Lattimore, the eventual pick.

General manager Mickey Loomis rebutted that notion on Friday night.

Although the Saints did like Mahomes, New Orleans had Lattimore ranked No. 3 on their draft board and never expected the top cornerback in the draft to drop out of the top 10 altogether.

"I would say it was possible," Loomis said. "But once Lattimore was available to us, it wasn't much of a decision."

Loomis admitted that the Saints were interested in picking the rifle-armed Texas Tech passer under the right circumstances...

Alvin Kamara could bring an old element back to the Saints' offense Posted By: Andrus Posted On Today 12:09 AM


By Nick Underhill

The Saints offense has always been at its best when Sean Payton has a running back who can move around the field and dictate matchups.

It started with Reggie Bush, then came Darren Sproles. New Orleans hoped to recreate the magic two seasons ago, but C.J. Spiller never materialized as hoped. On Friday, New Orleans bet big that Alvin Kamara can be the next player to fit the mold.

Quibble with the compensation if you wish. The Saints gave up a second-round pick next year and a seventh-round pick this season to acquire the 67th pick from the San Francisco to select the running back out of Tennessee.

But there’s no question the theory of what Kamara could be in this offense is appealing. And if it works, he could be worth the price.

His statistics tell the story of who Kamara is as a player. Appearing in 11 games last season, he rushed 103 times for 596 yards (5.8 yards per carry) and scored nine touchdowns. He also caught 40 passes for 392 yards with another four touchdowns....

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT -- Mike Detillier

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT

By Mike Detillier


I have been evaluating college talent headed to the NFL for 30 years and every year something jumps out at me. In the 2017 NFL draft class, what jumps out to me is the huge amount of potential pro prospects with Louisiana roots available to the 32 NFL teams.

Six out of the last nine years Louisiana per capita has produced more NFL players than any other state in the United States. In those 3 other years they came in second.

I have never seen so many potential Louisiana pro prospects in my 30 years covering the college football world in one draft class. Below are prospects who played high school football and grew up in Louisiana.

In my potential top-30 prospects Louisiana has 4:

Leonard Fournette-Halfback, LSU (St. Augustine)
Tim Williams- Outside Linebacker, Alabama (University Lab)
Cam Robinson-Offensive Tackle, Alabama (West Monroe)
Tre’Davious White-Cornerback, LSU (Green Oaks-Shreveport)


Prospects considered to be selected in the second or third round of the 2017 NFL draft Louisiana has 6 in:

Malachi Dupre-Wide Receiver, LSU (John Curtis)
Davon Godchaux-Defensive Tackle, LSU (Plaquemine)
Jeremy Cutrer-Cornerback, Middle Tennessee (Jewel-Sumner-Kentwood)
Duke Riley-Outside Linebacker, LSU (John Curtis)
Carlos Henderson-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (McDonogh 35)
Kendell Beckwith-Middle Linebacker, LSU (East Feliciana)


NFL prospects with very late third round into the fifth round Louisiana has 6 prospects:

Tanzel Smart-Defensive Tackle, Tulane (Scotlandville Magnet)
Chad Williams-Wide Receiver, Grambling (Madison Prep)
Elijah McGuire-Halfback, UL-Lafayette (Vandebilt-Catholic)
Trent Taylor-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (Evangel Christian)
Travin Dural-Wide Receiver, LSU (Breaux Bridge)
Xavier Woods-Strong Safety, Louisiana Tech (West Monroe)


Prospects with either sixth or seventh round pick grades Louisiana has 7 potential draft choices:

Cameron Tom-Offensive Center, Southern Mississippi (Catholic High B.R.)
D’Nerius Antoine-Strong Safety, Southern Mississippi (Westgate)
Cethan Carter-Tight End, Nebraska (Rummel)
Josh Boutte-Offensive Guard, LSU (Westgate)
B.J. Singleton-Defensive Tackle, Houston (Destrehan)
Lenard Tillery-Halfback, Southern (McKinley)
Dwayne Thomas-Cornerback, LSU (O. Perry Walker)


Prospects who just missed out on late round pick grades and will be signed as NFL free agents Louisiana has 5 in:

Speedy Noil-Wide Receiver/Return Man, Texas A&M (Edna Karr)
DeSean Smith-Tight End, LSU (Barbe)
Rickey Jefferson-Free Safety, LSU (Destrehan)
Lazedrick Thompson-Halfback, Tulane (St. Charles Catholic)
Otha Peters-Outside/Inside Linebacke,r UL-Lafayette (Covington)

The above numbers are just remarkable for our state to produce in one draft class.


Watch for Engram

I know the New Orleans Saints need help on the defensive side of the ball, but we all know Sean Payton loves offensive players and this is an offense-driven league. In Round 2 of the 2017 NFL draft don’t be surprised to see the Saints take a long look at Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram, if he is still on the board.

The 6-3, 230 pound Engram has re-written the Rebel records for receptions for tight ends and he wowed the scouts in Mobile, Alabama this past week at...
