LaTech OT Jordan Mills visiting Saints.

Jordan Mills Profile

Louisiana Tech offensive tackle Jordan Mills is going to visit the New Orleans Saints, according to league sources with knowledge of the situation.

Mills is a first-team All-Western Athletic Conference selection who's regarded as a rising draft prospect.

He's the cousin of Green Bay Packers cornerback Tramon Williams.

Some draft analysts project him from the second round to third round.

The 6-foot-5, 316-pounder ran the 40-yard dash in 5.23 seconds at the NFL scouting combine.

He bench pressed 225 pounds 20 times, registering a 28 1/2 inch vertical leap, a 28 1/2 inch vertical leap, an 8-5 broad jump, a 4.88 20-yard shuttle and an 8.10 three-cone drill.

Mills has drawn comparisons to Baltimore Ravens offensive tackle Michael Oher.

Re: LaTech OT Jordan Mills visiting Saints.

He's ranked as the 12th best tackle by WalterFootball:

Jordan Mills, OT, Louisiana Tech
Height: 6-5. Weight: 316. Arm: 34.08
Projected 40 Time: 5.37.
Projected Round (2013): 3-5.
3/16/13: Mills was a 2-year starter who helped pave the way for a good rushing offense. He also did well as a pass-protector.

Mills really helped himself with a strong Senior Bowl. He did a good job of fighting off speed-rushers and powerful linemen. Mills didn't win all of his reps, but he held his own. Mills also displayed a real mean streak. He blocked through the whistle and was ready to mix it up. Mills could be sleeper who turns into a player in the NFL. Some teams might move him inside to guard.

Ranked 9th among OTs (by NFLDraftScout.com) and projected to be picked in the 2nd or 3rd round.

Re: LaTech OT Jordan Mills visiting Saints.

Solid tackle. Helped keep Colby Cameron upright in that high-powered offense Louisiana Tech had last year. It's a crying shame that Tech's athletic director screwed the pooch by waiting on a bowl game that never came around. There were some good prospects on that team that didn't get to showcase their talents one more time in front of a national audience and scouts. Pro Days don't tell the entire story of a player.

Louisiana Tech tackles never work out in the NFL.

Definitely high-powered in passing, but they were actually very balanced with the run and the pass in that spread offense under Sonny Dykes last year. Their run-game amassed over 2700 yards and 47 scores with a 5.2 YPC clip. Kenneth Dixon had nearly 1200 yards of that and 27 scores...as a freshman. Mills could work out at being a good run-blocker, as well.

I seem to recall another tackle the Saints took from La.Tech. He worked out pretty well.
