While much of the team's braintrust was in Miami on Wednesday, the New Orleans Saints also had scouts in Columbia, S.C., to work out offensive guard A.J. Cann, according to Yahoo Sports and other reports.

South Carolina's pro day was a relatively quiet affair on Wednesday after running back Marcus Lattimore and defensive end Jadeveon Clowney drew big crowds in recent years.

Cann, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound guard, started 51 games for South Carolina and is usually ranked among the top 10 or 12 offensive linemen in the NFL draft.

The Saints starting offensive line is probably set for 2015, although the Saints could draft someone like Cann to challenge Tim Lelito for the starting job at left guard and potentially take over for Jahri Evans in 2016.

"Get rid of"? No.

"Replace with a younger talent next year"? Sure.

Re: New Orleans Saints check out lineman A.J. Cann at South Carolina pro day

are the saints changing back to a power-scheme again?

To many LT to LG prospect in the draft to go this route IMO. LG and LG only. dude can not swing

i have been thinking about this one and i have to take that statement back. i may not like the limitations he has but in the range he is in the draft pick 31 to 44 i can see it.

a proven player that is not hyped driven is a solid move.

granted i would not be as excited about it at 31 as 44 but i could accept it

I have to disagree, but that's just my opinion.

Especially his lack of run support is troublesome, but then again, he's not a bad RT per league standards.

Many say he's the best guard in the draft. He'll be gone by mid 2nd round at the latest.

Re: New Orleans Saints check out lineman A.J. Cann at South Carolina pro day

I must be the only one who doesn't like him. I hear time and time again that he's our best, and I say that's why we are in such bad shape if he's our best But I'm no line coach not even close. It's when I just zone in on his play, he seems to get beat or not block worth a damn. But I do realize that he is the best we have, if not he would be a backup to someone else. But please draft a replacement. That is all I want from my Christmas list.

I HATE ATLANTA
