New Orleans Saints select Missouri returner Marcus Murphy with their final pick in 2015 NFL Draft

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Saunders turned into a really good returner late in the year. Really really shocked at this pick. Could he not of been had as a UDFA? They always say UDFA so why not snag a 7th rd o-line?...

Because he was probably the best player available on their board... And they got a pretty promising guard undrafted from Notre Dame, so why not?

A little surprised in this but they see something in him. Im ready for the season to begin so I can feel like a fool when half the picks that I didn't like can remind me why Payton is my favorite coach in the N.F.L.

I'm surprised this guy lasted that long. He was a stud returner.

I was totally thrilled with Jalen Saunders as our return man... But he offers very little in the passing game. I guess with Murphy we'll have a return man who can also contribute at his position as a 3rd down back should Spiller get injured.

Or get Murphy/Spiller screening to opposite sides simultaneously...

Defense better have two very fast linebackers to match up
