METAIRIE -- When Brigham Young linebacker Colby Bockwoldt arrived for the New Orleans Saints' rookie minicamp in late April, he obviously knew his work was cut out for him.
As a seventh-round pick -- the 240th of 255 players selected in the two-day draft -- Bockwoldt wasn't exactly a household name when he got a call from the Saints. So he knew he had to make something happen one week later at the minicamp, where all the club's rookies had gathered.

Mike McKenzie has made a big difference on defense, but I believe Bockwoldt has made just as much of an impact. This kid is all over the field.

This lil guy is rowdy! He may not be the biggest or best player, but the kid has all kinds of heart, and i think that has infected some of our D. Finally a good steal in the draft. Who would of thought at the beginning of our season that we would have a 7th rounder start at LB. My Bockwoldt jersey has been ordered and is in the mail!

Bockwoldt is a guy that makes trading up in the first round to get an \"impact\" player look pretty foolish.

Good on him for figuring out what it takes to be a force on the field. Also good for the coaches for both recognizing his abilities and helping him develop.

I love this kid..........I was at the Raider game when he scored the touchdown....my friend leaned over and asked..\"who\'s that kid\"...with extreme pride I gave the whole story on this 7th round shocker....
He kind of reminds me of Grodegood from USC......same passion same heart......If we get him.......good lord.....
