Porter Gustin # 58
 
Porter Gustin didn’t hear his name called during the 2019 NFL Draft, however he did manage to find a new home. The former USC edge rusher was signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent Monday morning. Ryan Talbot of NewYorkUpstate.com first reported the signing on Twitter. Gustin had a post on his instagram account that confirmed the signing.

At 6-foot-5, 260 pounds, Gustin was one of the key players on the USC defense and known for disrupting the opposing backfield coming off the edge. During his first season as a starter in 2016, Gustin had a team high 13 tackles for loss with 5.5 sacks and four pass deflections. His junior and senior seasons would unfortunately be cut short due to injuries. Gustin was very productive in the Trojans pass rush before the injuries.

When healthy Gustin can make an impact in the pass rush coming off the edge, however the big question his health. It’s possible that the injury concerns played a factor in the edge rusher’s slide in the draft. NFL teams could be concerned with Gustin’s ability to stay healthy, but all it takes is one team to take a chance on a player.

The Saints run a 3-4 defense where the outside linebackers rush off the edge. USC ran a very similar defense under former defensive coordinator and current Cal head coach Justin Wilcox and current Trojans defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast. Gustin will be in a very similar role where he can rush off the edge. The scheme fit is there for Gustin and Saints head coach Sean Peyton, could get the most out of him.

Super strong, doesn't quit but that's pretty much it. How many Utah players we got now? Starting to become the New Orleans Mormons.
