Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

The value was right (6th round)... Depth and special teams pick. Would’ve liked a pass catcher there with the options available but if you’re complaining about a 6th round pick your hopes are way too high lol.

#Saints select Saquan Hampton, S out of Rutgers in the 6th round.

6'1, 206 lbs and more of your traditional safety. A lot of experience as a kick/punt coverage team guy.

Whereas CGJ is more of an over-aggressive slot guy, Hampton is more of a play it back DB. Box safety vibes.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Hampton was Rutgers’ team MVP in 2018. The Nottingham High product was honorable mention All-Big Ten and tied for the conference lead (11th nationally) with 16 passes defended (13 pass breakups, three interceptions). Hampton also had 65 tackles and a fumble recovery.

By Keith Sargeant | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com

Like most collegiate football players, Saquan Hampton said he’s dreamed of playing in the NFL since he donning his first helmet.

That dream started on a Pop Warner field in Mercer County, continued at Nottingham High School and Rutgers University, and will come to fruition in New Orleans.

Hampton, a 6-1, 206-pound safety from Hamilton Township, was picked Saturday by the Saints in the 6th round of the NFL Draft.

Rutgers has now had 62 players selected in the NFL Draft dating back to 1940, including 13 selections in the NFL Draft over the last seven years.

“Ever since I started playing football I knew the NFL ultimately was the goal,’’ Hampton told NJ Advance Media in a recent interview. “It feels good to be in the position where it’s going to come true. It took a lot of hard work to get to this point, and there’s a lot more to go.’’

NFL Draft 2019: Which college football conference produced the most first-round picks? Did Clemson beat Alabama (again) in No. 1 selections?

The Big Ten and ACC each had solid first-round showings in the NFL Draft. But another conference proved to be king when it comes to producing first-round picks.

An honorable mention All-Big Ten pick who tied for the conference lead and ranked 11th nationally with 16 passes defended (13 breakups, 3 interceptions) last season, Hampton was the recipient of the Rutgers football team’s Homer Hazel Award, giving to the team MVP.

Hampton was invited to the NFL Combine, where he produced a time of 4.48 seconds in the 40-yard dash and earned a 5.29 grade (meaning he’s projected as a “backup or special teams potential’’) from NFL.com.

“In my opinion of the defensive backs I’ve been around, he’s an NFL player,’’ Rutgers coach Chris Ash said. “He’s got size. He’s got speed. He can play the game. He’s got football intelligence and he’s going to make some team happy. He worked extremely hard over the last three years. (He) had some set backs with injuries but had a great senior year and just kept working and grinding and believing in the process. I’m excited to see what his future holds.''

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
