How much were you in touch with the Saints throughout this process?

“The Saints have always been one of the teams I believe I can fit right in with. I’m so excited right now I really can’t explain my feelings. I’m so anxious to get down to New Orleans and so ready to put on that black and gold again.”

Sean Payton has said plenty of times that left tackle is open competition, how does that make you feel?

“Definitely music to my ears. I’m a serious competitor, real serious. I’m going to come in and I’m looking to fight for the job day one.”

You said, ‘black and gold again’, what do you mean by that?

“Arkansas-Pine Bluff is black and gold, so I don’t have to change my color scheme.”

Did you run a 4.65 at the combine?

“Yes sir, the unofficial.”

Do you get a lot of your speed from track and being a shot putter?

“A whole lot of it was God given, really just naturally talented. I worked on my speed over the years but I have to give a lot of it to God given ability.”

Why did you turn down Division I offers?

“I lost a lot of my Division I recruitment because of my ACT scores being so late after signing day, a lot of the smaller schools were coming at me and being able to do track at Arkansas-Pine Bluff was a deciding factor in why I chose Arkansas-Pine Bluff and I believe it helped me tremendously. It was a humbling experience going to a smaller school and I thought I was going to go big out of high school, so it’s been a longer road but I just kept fighting.”

What made you believe you could get to this point coming out of Arkansas-Pine Bluff?

“I never doubted, I never doubted myself. I saw myself going big out of high school and when I didn’t I kind of questioned it for a minute, but I kept fighting trying to get better as a player, learn more about the game, and I never doubted myself.”

This guys as fast as Jimmy Graham! lmao

Payton loves his mismatches, as this draft pick is screaming "screen game" all day with this guy out in front

What a weapon this is on your O-Line. Let's not forget that we want him to stop opposing players putting Brees on his butt primarily but him out in front with Pierre going Screen ...... YES PLEASE!

Now the battle for the OT spots will be a real hornets nest. Will be very interesting to follow this in camp.

SP is going to bring him as a 3rd tackle and make him eligible.

now can he develop as quick as Nicks or is he more like Bushrod?

i am going to say year two he should be putting the push for the #1 spot. he definitely has better raw skill than bushrod,

dream world by mid season because we might be placing LOT on IR by that point
