NEW ORLEANS —

It's a tradition unlike any other, New Orleans Saints rookies trying to eat crawfish.

The Touchdown Club held its 47th annual Super "Boil" in Harahan Wednesday.

Close to two dozen rookies took part in the event. Some of the rookies, Erik McCoy, Alize Mack and Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, weren't rookies at eating crawfish. However, the Saints Sixth-round selection, Saquan Hampton, and seventh-round selection, Kaden Elliss, had them for the very first time.

The rookies and the rest of the veterans will finish the first week of Organized Team Activities Thursday.

NEW ORLEANS, La. (WVUE) - It’s a big week for the Saints offseason program as the team will move into the OTA-portion. This means the rookies and veterans will be on the field for the first time together in 2019.

So, you’re really looking at just beginning the process beginning an installation that’s similar to training camp and yet the focus still on the lifting and the conditioning.”

With the 231st pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Saints selected tight end Alizé Mack from Notre Dame.

From NFL.com, Mack came to the Irish with great expectations after starring at Las Vegas powerhouse Bishop Gorman, which had won six straight state high school titles as well as the mythical national championship in one of the seasons he was there. He started five games as a true freshman at Notre Dame, catching 13 passes for 190 yards (14.6 average) in 13 games played. Mack was academically ineligible in 2016 and did not play. He practiced with the team that fall, and then worked through the summer to become eligible in 2017. He started six games as a junior, grabbing 19 passes for 166 yards (8.7 average) and a touchdown on a team that lacked consistency in the passing game. Mack started 12 games in 2018 for the College Football Playoff participants, receiving 36 passes for 360 yards (10.0 per) and three scores. ...

With the 244th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, the Saints selected linebacker Kaden Elliss from the University of Idaho.

From NFL.com, Kaden is the son of Luther Elliss, a first-round pick in 1995 for the Detroit Lions who played 10 years in the NFL. The older was the defensive line coach at Idaho for the past four years, seeing his son excel from Day 1. Kaden was the Utah High School Most Valuable Player in 2013 as a quarterback and defensive end after leading his high school to its first state title in 30 years. He grayshirted the 2014 season, and then finished second on the team with 83 tackles (eight for loss, one sack) in 2015. Ellis was an honorable mention All-Sun Belt pick in 2016 after intercepting five passes to lead all FBS linebackers (also 65 tackles, eight for loss). Sun Belt coaches named him second-team all-conference in 2017 (80 tackles, 16 for loss, six sacks, four pass breakups, two forced fumbles) and showed off his athleticism by lining up at wide receiver and tight end (7-156-22.3, two TD). Ellis was a first-team pick in 2018, leading his team with 16 tackles for loss and seven sacks (60 tackles, three pass break-ups). He played some offense, as well (3-20-6.7 receiving). ...
