The New Orleans Saints had been connected to Northern Iowa offensive tackle Trevor Penning for much of the pre-draft process, and Thursday they made those projections a reality.

New Orleans used the second of its two first-round picks on Penning, a 6-foot-7, 325-pound tackle who should give the team a long-term replacement for Terron Armstead, who signed with the Miami Dolphins in free agency this offseason.



Penning, who turns 23 next month, was a three year starter for Northern Iowa. He was a first-team All-Missouri Valley Conference performer as a senior, and is one of the most athletic offensive tackles in the 2022 draft class.

In case you missed it post draft, Dennis Allen stated that Ramz will stay at RT.

The plan for Penning is at LT but of course heíll have to compete for the starting role.

Surprising. With Penning's ability to maul, especially on run plays, it seemed you could maximize and take advantage of those skills more at Right Tackle...
