Good afternoon Saints Report! I'm as much of a fan of college football and the NFL Draft as I am the Saints, and can see a scenario where Sean Payton rolls the dice on the SEC's best senior quarterback, who is both productive and worrisome.

You can read the full article here.

Thanks for reading!

My impressions of him is that he commits too many turnovers at key times.

Plus he's just a total d bag.

I didn't realize that the Saints were interested in him. I just watched him play last Saturday vs. Bama. I'll have to watch him more closely next time. What round is he projected to go in?

I am very impressed with DeShone Kizer of Notre Dame. Besides the obvious physical ability and talent, he has the rare quality of keeping his team calm, even on difficult situations. Reminds in this to Drew and Russell Wilson.

I don't think Payton is going to bring in a guy that openly challenges and argues with his coaches. Just went thru a bunch of hoops getting rid of all the malcontents on the team and I would be surprised if he went against that commandment. "Thou shalt not sign Primma Donnas".

I want to see how another Purdue qb playing in Louisiana looks coming out of college first. You know if les miles doesn't screw up his brain first.

Jimmy Garropolo, in my opinion, is the one to keep an eye on. He and Sean Payton have that Eastern Illinois connection and he will be a free agent after the 2017 season. Does New England tag a backup QB or do they move on from Brady?

Does New Orleans move on from Brees?

Some interesting things are coming after 2017.

N/S. I'm not an LSU fan...but oh my, LSU is going to have a great QB in Myles Brennan. I just witnessed the best prep QB play I've ever seen.

The guys I want are players who are poised, stand tall in the pocket (even if they're not tall) and are accurate.

A strong arm is a plus, but not required. And the abiliity to make plays with their feet is another huge bonus.

But not in the Lamar Jackson way. The Drew Brees way. Keeping plays alive with superior footwork and pocket savvy.

I see some of those things in CJ Beathard, so I'm looking at him real close.

I think DeShone Kizer is intriguing and the prototypical QB. Basically, Cam Newton without being an enormous *******, also a lot more , accurate. I see a lot to like there. But I don't see any way he'll be there for us unless we trade for him.

N/S. I'm not an LSU fan...but oh my, LSU is going to have a great QB in Myles Brennan. I just witnessed the best prep QB play I've ever seen.
Eh? QB play as in one singular play or his playing of quarterback, as in an entire game?

Either way...even more reason for me to want Les Miles kicked to the curb.
