New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints have signed veteran G Jamar Nesbit to a three-year contract, it was announced today by Executive Vice-President/General Manager Mickey Loomis. Nesbit was an unrestricted free agent.

Nesbit, 6-foot-4, 329 pounds, has started at both guard spots and at center over his five-season NFL career. He joins New Orleans after a one-year stint with the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he played in all 16 games and started two contests. He has played in 69 games in his career, with 47 starts.

Before signing with Jacksonville in 2003, Nesbit spent his first four seasons with the Carolina Panthers. In 2001, he started 15 games at left guard and one at center. In 2000, he started all 16 games at right guard.

Nesbit was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Panthers out of South Carolina in 1999.

Don\'t be surprised if we get a receiver somewhere in the draft.

Good move. I like it a lot.

Now the only reason to pick an offensive player is if some phenominal player falls to us like Deuce did.
Well, I\'d kinda like to add a WR, like Devery Henderson.

But, CB and LB-Main needs.

there are so many wrs in this draft and that makes me think that henderson might slip out of the 2nd round and into the 3rd, and if he did then i think that we should take a serious look at him, he has tons of speed and we can always use another wr to stretch the field....

a lil info on Henderson.....

Devery Henderson WR LSU

Devery has very good speed and quickness. He has good size for his position and good hands. I like his quickness in and out of his routes. He is a great kid with a good attitude.

Needs to Improve
Devery needs to be more aggressive when the ball is in the air. He also does a little bit of body catching. This happens to some players when they are trying to control themselves coming out of a break because of too much speed.

Bottom Line
You just have to love the players coming out of this program right now. I\'m talking about the attitude of the players. These kids are all about team. Matt Mauck, Mike Clayton and this kid, Devery Henderson. Devery has as much talent coming out of this draft as Peerless Price had when he was drafted. The big difference is Devery has a better attitude. Devery will be an impact player in a few years. He is not as close to being the finished product at WR as Clayton is, but when he does become a technically sound WR, he will be something special. The upside potential for this kid is enormous. He has to work on being more aggressive. That is very important for Devery. If he accomplishes this, he could be a #1 receiver for some lucky team. If he does not develop this mental toughness, he should be an excellent #2 WR. Either way, you will be picking a core player who should become an important part of your team. Devery has only been a WR since his junior year. Prior to that, he played some running back. If Devery had four years as a WR, he would be a first round pick (IMO). Remember the movie Harry and the Hendersons? I call Devery Henderson ‘Harry’ because that\'s how big his potential is.

I know about Devery. ;)

I\'m an LSU student!!!

I think he\'ll go in the early 2nd round b/c of the 4.3 40-dash he posted and his Senior Bowl performance. He has a ton of potential b/c he only played WR for 2 seasons after converting from RB. Only injury I know of is a broken wrist 2 years ago when Marcus Randall threw it in a dangerous spot, but he still caught it for the TD.
