Deuce ran a 4.4 at the combine and was like 230 lbs. Some mock drafts had Deuce as the #1 pick in the draft. We picked him with the 23rd pick with Ricky Williams on the team. I like Benny Snell, but he's not Deuce.

Really like what I saw of Texas A&M DT Kingsley Keke during workouts today.

Sean Payton: Trace McSorley could be the next Julian Edelman

https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.co...ulian-edelman/

Saints coach Sean Payton told Peter King for Football Morning in America that McSorley reminds him of Julian Edelman, a three-year starting quarterback at Kent State who became a seventh-round pick of the Patriots in 2009 and is now the reigning Super Bowl MVP.

“When I looked at him, my first thought was, ‘I wonder if he can be Edelman?’ I wondered if he could be a versatile kind of guy,” Payton said.

Saw some highlights from his combine ... Trace's arm strength was a bit lacking & looked rather "smallest" standing next to some of those other QB's.

If it doesn't work out with Plan A (QB), it's nice to know that a HC of Sean's caliber see traits of Julian in you as a slot WR. That could take you a long way if he puts in work. I actually see it as a compliment from Payton.

The good to above average coaches see things in players that the average joe will never see on the football field. See Bill Belichick.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft Prospects (NFL Combine)

Another LSU Tiger ... Greedy Williams runs a 4.38 (top performer) 40 at the combine. What he did well is turning his hips and head around for the ball while in flight. In today's passing league, that's an important skill set to have.

I'll be critical here though ... he needs to hit the weight room hard this off season. He is a tad bit on the slim side. Adding a little bulk will do his body good. Lots of strong, physical WR's he'll be going up against each week.

He's definitely gone on Day 1 though.

Report: Saints 'enamored' with receivers in 2019 draft class

https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2019...mpression=true

New Orleans still likes its younger receivers, particularly Keith Kirkwood. Plus, the Saints are enamored with the depth of this year’s draft class. A receiver could easily be in play with the team’s first pick, at No. 62 overall, late in the second round.
