Saints sign 2-time All American C/G

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; From Michigan State. Probably slipped through the cracks because of size, but apparently this guy can play. Possibly our offensive version of Sam Mills? HIGHWAY ROBBERY: Saints Snag 2-Time All-American in UDFA Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk...

Re: Saints sign 2-time All American C/G

A shorter center or guard is not a problem, especially not when your QB is barely 6 feet tall. Just like for DTs a shorter C will most likely have a lower center of gravity and a good starting point to get under DTs creating great leverage. I would hover not mind at all if he could put on another 10lbs to have a little more mass in combating big NTs.

I also like the Coach Roushar connection, the Saints should know very well what they are getting.

I think there's a chance this kid shows up and starts this year. He could be a really special player.

Diamond in the rough?

Training camp should be fun.

With our Guard situation, he would probably consider it a failure if he didn't crack the starting lineup.

In all seriousness though, seems like a nice signing.

I can see both Jack Allen and Landon Turner getting big reps in the preseason to guage how ready they are for the prime time spotlight.

Oh great. We've got a slow footed tackle and an undersized center. We need to sign or trade for a veteran.
