Hvis man er på twitter kan man følge de fleste af de draftede spillere via linksne.


#13 Andrus Peat, OT, Standford

If you look at the right side of the Saints’ offensive line, Jahri Evans and Zach Strief are both in their 30s. Peat will help solidify the Saints’ entire front. I really like his upside, but I thought there were some inconsistencies in his play.” — Mike Mayock


#31 Stephone Anthony, ILB, Clemson

Twitter konto: // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 50 sagde:

“Anthony is a big inside linebacker; a prototype. I think his best football is ahead of him. He’ll be a starting inside linebacker immediately. He blew it up at the combine. For a guy that big, he’s highly athletic.” — Mike Mayock


#44 Hau’oli Kikaha, OLB, Washington

Twitter konto: – // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 45 sagde:

“The Washington football team had a few guys on defense last year. Kikaha led the nation in sacks. He gets to the quarterback in a variety of ways. His effort is outstanding. You’re drafting him to get to the quarterback” — Daniel Jeremiah


#75 Garrett Grayson, QB, Colorado State

Twitter konto: // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 17 sagde:

“He throws with anticipation, which is rare for a college quarterback these days. He won’t overwhelm with his physical traits, but I think the whole is better than the composite parts. He has a game similar to Drew Brees.” — Mike Mayock


#78 P.J. Williams, DB, Florida State

Twitter konto: // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 38 sagde:

“Remember, the Saints signed Brandon Browner in free agency. Williams can play corner or free safety.” — Mike Mayock


#148 Davis Tull, OLB, Tennessee-Chattanooga

Twitter konto: – // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 90 sagde:

Tull was a productive FCS linebacker who can earn a roster spot as a high motor pursuit defender. He doesn’t have the athleticism to be an every down linebacker but he’s a solid depth addition for New Orleans. — Mark Dulgerian


#154 Tyeler Davison, DT, Fresno State

Twitter konto: – // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 95 sagde:

The Saints allowed the NFL’s 2nd most yards per rush in 2014. Davison has the size and power to collapse the interior of offensive lines. He is an ideal developmental prospect who can emerge as a consistent contributor down the road. — Mark Dulgerian


#167 Damian Swann, CB, Georgia

Twitter konto: // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 46


#230 Marcus Murphy, RB, Missouri

Twitter konto: // New Orleans Saints trøje nummer: 48 sagde:

Sean Payton continues to unearth utility running backs he can fit in various roles within his offense. Murphy has potential as a cog in the Saints’ wide open offense if he excels during camp. –Mark Dulgerian

    METAIRIE, La. — A theme emerged while coach Sean Payton rattled off the qualities of several of the New Orleans Saints’ draft picks during rookie minicamp. Leaders, high character guys, hard workers, tough guys. When asked about that trend, Payton stressed it’s no coincidence.

    “Make no mistake about it, (it was) one of the messages way prior to the draft,” said Payton, who said the Saints specifically looked at what made their 2006 draft class successful, led by picks like Reggie Bush, Roman Harper, Jahri Evans, Rob Ninkovich, Zach Strief and Marques Colston.

    ……måske årsag til at Toon & Jimmy Graham blev “tradet” – de passede ikke ind i kemien
    – og hvorfor Colston bliver – han viser at selv en 7.runde spiller kan få SUCCES

    Det kunne sikkert godt være en stor del af det. Specielt Stills traden… En så ung up-coming receiver, det virkede noget underligt for mig.
