Have the Saints shown any interest in you before the draft?

“Not that I know of, my agent dealt with most of that stuff. I definitely didn’t expect New Orleans to pick me when they were on the clock, so when I got a call from them I was definitely excited and wasn’t expecting it.”

What are your thoughts about coming down here and playing with guys like Drew Brees, Marques Colston, and Lance Moore?

“It’s amazing. In high school I caught some passes from Drew Brees when he was in San Diego, so I know what he is capable of. I watch him every year in the NFL. It’s a prolific offense and a huge opportunity for me to go in and play with veterans, learn and be a sponge.”

Who called you when the Saints picked you?

“I talked to everyone, I talked to Coach (Sean) Payton, Mickey Loomis and pretty much everyone. They were all congratulating me and I tried to hold in all my excitement.”

What were the circumstances when you were in high school and you got to throw with Drew Brees?

“He was playing for the San Diego Chargers still and they just needed extra bodies to go catch balls at one of the local high schools, so I was one of the receivers they called and caught some passes from him.”

I understand you had another year of eligibility and that you were advised that you wouldn’t go any better than the third round and you went in the fifth, any regrets?

“No regrets at all, I have a strong faith in my plan and God’s plan for me was to go in the fifth round and I am where I am because of that and all I have to do is go to work now and prove people wrong, all the people that doubted me and I love it. I love being the underdog.”

Watching the draft last night, were you anticipating going in the third round?

“I have a pessimistic outlook on a lot of things so I told my family I didn’t expect to go yesterday and I spent some time at the beach hanging out with friends. Today, I figured, today is the day with the rest of the rounds coming around, so I sat by the TV and I have my family here and it’s just exciting for all of us.”

The Saints have a number of guys whose fathers have played in the NFL, how do you think that helps you and do you think the Saints like having players with the NFL in the bloodlines?

“I think it’s the understanding we have about the business. We know how we have to treat it, we have to come in and work our tails off every single day and nothing less is expected from us.”

It looks like we'll be keeping 6 wide receivers this year. Somebody pointed out earlier that we'll probably stash someone on IR.

Sorry to be the Negative Nancy - BUT wouldn't this kid have been happy to get the call from ANY team?
