2015 UDFA Signings

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; my issue is we are always way over rated at WR. Imagine what Drew could do if the WR were 75% of the hype over the years. thus the reason i believe we always carry so many....

Re: 2015 UDFA Signings

Hagan, most of the hype regarding our WR is here on our home board...

Colston gets no hype in the national media, but I'd take him over all but maybe four, five receivers in the NFL the past nine years...

But I'd agree that we don't appear to be that deep at WR, but we're deeper than most...

And after all the belly-aching about our defense, I got no problem ignoring WR for one draft...

We still don't know what we got in WR Jalen Saunders who'll have a full off season to acclimate to our offense...

I'd like to have gotten a stud "x" wide receiver, but taking Stephone Anthony and KaKow was the better, necessary path...

I wanted Chris Conley, but Andy Reid reached up and got him in the third for the Chiefs...

Was it a GREAT draft, neaux...

But considering it was the first with Ireland, I see a remarkable improvement in both quality of selections and draft management...

My only issue was not moving up for Beasley and letting the Clowns get him, but I don't know if Sean Mickey Ireland decided he wasn't all that or the price was too steep...

Isn't an ex-Saints coach HC at Syracuse now? If so Loomis should have pretty good insight on this cat.

I'd keep an eye on Jordan Taylor, he killed UH when I watched them. If he gets cut by DEN. I like the Bobby Richardson signing and I agree, about time they made the offensive line a priority again, its what lead to the team's success in 2009

Doug Marrone hasn't been at Syracuse for a couple years now. He quit on the Bills in the offseason and that's why Rex is the new Bills coach. I'm sure he gave Loomis some info though

Just watching the saints interviews on the official site.

I reckon we should throw the dice on Joe Horn. Looks like he could still play!.

I see Morten was showing he still had it kicking that cup at the fans area yesterday

Indiana DL Bobby Richardson

NFL.com highest rated UDFA, was projected mid rounder. Kind of a DE/DT tweener. like Walker was.



STRENGTHS: Light on his feet with the lateral quickness to sidestep blocks and close on the quarterback...good flexibility and body control for the position, making him a moving target for blockers...uses his long arms and large hands to effectively rip through blocks or reach into the sky - six pass break-ups and three blocked kicks in his career...very good backfield vision and run awareness to quickly locate...smart player who diagnoses quickly to sniff out plays and react.

Motor doesn't quit, working through the whistle...versatility to play inside and outside with experience up and down the defensive line in college...senior captain and self-made player who works hard between games to improve - coachable and works his tail off in practice...adequate production for the position, averaging almost five tackles per start at Indiana...offers versatility for even and odd fronts.
Notice a pattern?

Re: 2015 UDFA Signings

look at these college names... I swear SP has a bucket list to sign a player from every college in America
of course, the Towson, Bloomsburg, and Hofstra picks turned out okay...

I wish 2004 Joe Horn and 2009 Drew Brees could have played together...
