Miami Hurricanes TE Grew Up a Saints Fan
New Orleans Saints Conference Call

What are your thoughts on being drafted by the Super Bowl champion Saints?


Its an honor to be drafted by the New Orleans Saints. Its a team that Ive watched for the last 10 years. Theyre my favorite team and I see that as the best situation possible.


How much contact did you have with the Saints throughout this process or was this pick a surprise?


I came on a visit, which was incredible. I got the opportunity to meet all the coaches and sit in the locker room and see the facilities. It definitely wasnt a surprise for me and Im very excited.


How did you become a Saints fan?


I actually know a lot of people from New Orleans and a Saints game was the first pro football game that I ever watched.


Where do you feel like you fit in with this offense and the tight ends like Jeremy Shockey and David Thomas?


I definitely think that I can help immediately. Of course learning from those two guys is a great opportunity for me, but I definitely think that I have the ability to stretch the field with my speed and size and have the opportunity to get past the safeties. Im very good in one-on-one coverage and I think thats where Ill be able to help early and also on special teams.

I'm excited about this kid, like they say a quarterbacks best friend is a big tight end, this guy has the size and speed to be great. Also having mentors like shockey and our coaching staff, this kid has a big upside with us!!!
