Jerell Adams, TE, South Carolina
Height: 6-5. Weight: 244. Arm: 34. Hand: 8.75.
40 Time: 4.64.
Projected Round (2015): 2-4.
3/5/16: Adams had an excellent combine workout to really help his draft stock. He had the fastest 40 time of any tight end there and showed some nice athleticism in the field work.

Adams took over for Rory Anderson in 2015 and had a good season despite poor quarterback play at South Carolina. Adams totaled 28 catches for 421 yards with three touchdowns on the year. As a junior (21-279-1) and sophomore (13-187-2), he had modest contributions. Adams had a solid week at the Senior Bowl, and given the weak tight end class, he could be drafted earlier than expected.
Bolded is not good; I'd hate to use a high to mid round pick on a TE when there is so much defensive talent this year

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

SP saw what I saw he. He's there the whole game, not just the fourth quarter. This deal was needed but it wasn't a emergency. However we were not going to go defense here, and then defense in first two rounds too. You really think SP wants Drew to go through what he went through last year? You can say the offense will be fine with protection but we are relying on Coleman and Josh Hill, sorry. It's not worth the risk.

Defense may win championships but the saints with a good defense and the same offense would have trouble getting HFA or winning the division(as 2013 showed). Oh you thought SP wants to wait until 2017?

The more troubling part is that we really haven't heard any defensive players visiting the Saints since Laurinaitis.

Could it be that defensive FAs are avoiding NOLA and are asking for too much to come there?!

Fleener questions effort of some ex-Colts teammates - NFL.com

Fleener later told Sirius XM NFL Radio that it was easy to pick the Saints after the Colts made little effort to re-sign him.

"The Colts' lack of interest and the Saints' interest made going to New Orleans an easy choice," Fleener said.

Indy prefers the skill set of the more versatile Dwayne Allen at tight end. As for Fleener, he prefers being wanted by the Saints.

I think the issue is just that our coaching staff hasn't been in NOLA these past few days. They were at Alabama's pro day, then Clemson's, then Ohio State's... I'm sure we hear some news this weekend before they head to LSU's pro day on Monday.

Looks like their going "all-in" with drafting defense
