Greg Paulus Trying Out for New Orleans Saints: Does He Stand a Chance?


May 6, 2010

Quote:

Paulus, a former elite college prospect and a highly-recruited quarterback coming out of high school, has turned his sights back toward football over the past two years.


With a try-out with the New Orleans Saints, it's not impossible that he could obtain his new goal.


New Orleans doesn't have any real experience or polished talent behind Drew Brees, which leads even the most critical of NFL experts to think, "well, why not?".


Paulus only tossed 13 touchdowns to 14 interceptions in his lone season as a starter, but made extraordinary improvements to his game in the second half of the 2009 season.


Other interesting points about what he displayed on the field in 2009 are his great completion percentage (67.6%), which is a Syracuse record, and his overall progress as a pocket passer.


Paulus has solid athleticism for the position, along with decent speed and excellent accuracy. He has the arm to compete at the next level, and after adding 30 pounds to his formerly 180-pound frame, he now has the strength to go with a tough and confident demeanor.

I looked all over our boards about this and found nothing. At the least, it seems an interesting subject. Do any of you think that he has enough ability to be a practice squad guy? Or better? Should I start a poll?

Football smarts. It's what he and Brees have in common.

Coachable. It's what Payton loves.

I'm pulling for him.

Let's go Duke! Let's go Duke!

Sounds like Payton has his little pet project he can try to develop on the side. If you look at his numbers, it's quite impressive especially being that he hadn't played organized football in over 4 years. Now while his play wasn't great on the hardwood, he was a leader on the floor and transitioned that well onto the football field. I'm rooting for the guy... just don't like the fact his bonehead interception early in the year at 'Cuse cost me a grip! Bastard.

Hell No dont want him dont care if he's wearing a Saints jersey, once a Blue Devil always a douchebag(unless your named Shane Battier) Paulus is a Douchebag I used to watch espn just to see highlights of him gettin dunked on he always seemed to have nuts in his face at some point every game.
Living in NY heard of him comming out he was the Number 3 QB prospect in the nation decided to go Blue devil so thats all i know, however i do remember him playing admirably in that Army All American game

recruited by the most prestigious basketball school in the country to go play point guard.....and recruited by one of the most prestigious football schools in the country to play QB

those are 2 of the highest sought after positions in the entire country and paulus could have played either

im pumped for this kid.....he should've picked football to begin with

He'll battle it out with Canfield for camp rookie QB. Both of them have potential but Paulus could have been a high round pick if he had choosen football as a career earlier.
