Nick Saban had somewhere to be, but golf partner Mark Ingram wasn’t having it.

Saban was recounting when he and Ingram finished second to Georgia Tech pair Paul Johnson and Jon Berry in the 2015 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge at Reynolds Lake Oconee Resort outside Atlanta.

“We were in the playoff with Georgia Tech to win on about the fifth extra hole,” Saban said. “I said, ‘Mark, this is my last hole. I have to go speak.’ There are whole load of people at the plane and they’re all calling every five minutes saying, ‘We’ve got a 1,000 people you got to speak to tonight. We’re going to be late.’”

New Orleans Saints 2018 NFL Draft: Why Taysom Hill Is the Winner

By Dean Mullen

Make no mistake, Taysom Hill has to feel pretty good going into the 2018 season. He will undoubtedly have to beat out Tom Savage to win the backup job. Also, with the acquisition of J.T. Barrett, it’s likely to be a battle for that backup position. Nevertheless, Hill has the coaches’ eyes and some experience being with the team for a solid year.

The fact that the Saints didn’t select a quarterback, has to instill some confidence in Hill. Surely, Who Dat Nation was salivating in round one, when the Saints traded up to move to the 14th overall pick. The thought was that the Saints were going to pick a quarterback. That’s the usual scenario when a team moves up and gives up a couple of draft picks.

NEW ORLEANS -- No question that after last year’s bountiful draft for the New Orleans Saints, the 2018 version of let’s take a chance would be scrutinized in a way that no other draft would be.

No matter who the Saints chose this year, the comparison to 2017 would be made, even though none of the players selected starting last Thursday had even taken a snap in the NFL.

So, how did the Saints do in this year’s installment? That all depends on who you ask. The range of grades looks like the report card of a seventh grader going through the change to adulthood: it is all over the map.
ESPN gave the Saints a C+, putting New Orleans just above average.

Bleacher Report, without providing any explanation with its rankings, gave the Saints a D, the lowest in the league along with Oakland and Seattle.
Yahoo and USA Today agreed with Bleacher Report and also rated the New Orleans draft as being D worthy. However, both NFL.com and CBS Sports had the Saints with a grade of B.

The biggest move of the draft for New Orleans came very early. The Saints made a bold move in the first round Thursday, trading next year’s first-rounder to move up and take Texas-San Antonio defensive end Marcus Davenport, a player who filled a need for a pressure player at the right defensive end spot the Saints have been trying to fill long-term for years.

The New Orleans Saints are bringing back versatile cornerback P.J. Williams on a one-year deal, the team announced Thursday.

Williams battled injuries and inconsistency early in his career, but he found a niche over the past two seasons as a nickelback with the Saints, playing about 80% of their defensive snaps inside the slot when active. He also filled in at safety when needed because of injuries late last season.

The Saints let cornerback Eli Apple go in free...

Saints By Position: Top 5 linebackers in franchise history

When discussing the best linebackers in New Orleans Saints history and you have just five at the top of the list, you have to start with the greatest linebacker corps in NFL history. That part is easy.

Of course, there have been many good to very good linebackers in the history of the franchise. Some were block-eaters. Some were tackling machines. Some were good in pass coverage. Some were outstanding pass rushers.

Then, there were the few who could do it all and...

New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees recently inked a new two-year deal worth $50 million. This new deal may open the door to the quarterback playing another year past the 2020 season. However, Saints head coach Sean Payton recently spoke with the media and let it slip that this may be Brees’s final season (although he later tried to walk it back). That would make sense considering the team’s aggressiveness in free agency and the restructuring of a multitude of...

We’ve gone over four wide receivers the New Orleans Saints should consider in free agency, but there are plenty of names still out there that weren’t covered. In fact, there are quite a few big names still on the market, but the Saints should avoid each them. Why? I’m glad you asked.

Josh Gordon could be an elite wide receiver again in the NFL. He looked like a budding superstar-in-the-making for the Cleveland Browns what feels like ages ago, catching 87 passes for...

Now that the Saints have made some major additions in free agency including safety Malcolm Jenkins and wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, it is a good time to revisit the mock draft landscape. With the recent additions, and retention of in-house free agents, it feels like while New Orleans has spaces where they can improve, there are no glaring holes on the team. So the focus of this mock shifts to finding early impact players in the first two days while shoring up...
