The college film has been studied, the prospect showcase games are long done, the pro days are mostly in the books, so that leaves one last bit of pre-draft work for the New Orleans Saints: The face-to-face meeting.

Face-to-face isnít meant literally this year, of course. NFL teams are conducting their official pre-draft meetings with prospective draftees virtually, which has both benefits and drawbacks. But with eight picks in this yearís NFL draft, the Saints have been busy getting to know the players off the field.

So what, if anything, can we glean from the long list of prospects the Saints have met with (or plan to meet with) in the lead up to the draft?

Using the trusty visit trackers at Walter Football and DraftAce.com as well as various reports from around the web, here are the players the Saints have met with or were reportedly scheduled to meet with in the lead up to the draft.

It should be no problem to get eight starters in the draft. Just look at all the talent.

What!? Eight starters in a single draft would be beyond incredible. I would venture to say that has never happened in the history of the NFL. Getting as many as three or four starters is considered exceptional.
