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

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

Coby Fleener says some Colts were “along for the ride” in 2015 | ProFootballTalk

Really don't care for this type of chatty cathy with the media...

You're working to become a Saint now - put that other schiott behind you...
