Saints talked to Reuben Fosterís girlfriend during draft last year

Things worked out for the Saints because the guy they picked at the end of the first round turned out to be a good player. But as importantly for them, things worked out because they didnít get a chance to take linebacker Reuben Foster.

Saints coach Sean Payton told Peter King of SI.com that he thought theyíd have still taken tackle Ryan Ramczyk with the 32nd pick even if the 49ers hadnít traded in front of them to take Foster 31st last year. But he admitted they were considering Foster, and were on the phone with his girlfriend during the draft.

Foster said after last yearís draft that the Saints were on the phone with him leading up to their pick, and indicated they wanted to take him. They also wanted to talk to his girlfriend, asking if she was going to be able to help Foster stay out of trouble.

ďThis was part of our fact-finding late in the round,Ē Payton said. ďI hadnít had a chance to meet his girlfriend during the pre-draft process, and we were still in the process of deciding. I think we were going to take Ramczyk anyway, but I wanted to talk to her about Reuben.Ē
