Marvin Mitchell Signed

The New Orleans Saints have signed their 2007 seventh-round draft choice linebacker Marvin Mitchell to a three-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice President/General Manager Mickey Loomis. With the signing, the Saints now have four of their seven picks from the April draft under contract.

"Marvin is a strong young player and he's adapted well to our system through the minicamps and OTAs," Loomis said. "He's a real competitor who will push hard for a spot in our linebacker corps during training camp."

Mitchell was taken by the Saints with the 220th overall selection in the draft following a solid college career at the University of Tennessee. The 6-foot-3-inch, 249-pound linebacker was a team captain for the Volunteers during his senior season where he served as the team's starting middle linebacker, opening all 13 games in the 2006 season.

For his career, Mitchell started 15 of the 40 games he played and registered 154 tackles (120 solo), one sack, an interception, four pass defenses and three forced fumbles. The Norfolk, Va. native led UT in tackles as a senior, making 104 stops and forcing two fumbles.

Heard alot of negatives about him pre-draft and post selection, but nothing but good things in mini-camps. Hope he turns into another diamond in the rough.

Special teamer

Greetings fellow Saints fans. I'm a long time reader but first time poster. Now back to MM, he should be an absolute beast on special teams. I don't see him cracking the starting line up anytime soon. I hope I'm wrong though.

Welcome to the site...

I don't expect much if anything from Marvin... being a late round pick and all. Hopefully he can make an impact on special teams and with some hard work... slowly move himself up the depth chart. With the departure of Clark, we definately can use a hitter on ST.
