Found April 30, 2013 on The Saints Nation:
I caught up with Eric Galko of Optimum Scouting over the weekend to get his view of the Saints' first round pick and felt it was very valuable feedback to share. Optimum Scouting is one of the most popular sites on the Bloguin Network and is worth frequent visitation during draft season in particular. They are a worthwile follow on twitter, as well.

Well after weeks of speculation, the New York Jets finally pulled the trigger and acquired the services of running back Chris Ivory from the New Orleans Saints for a fourth round pick.
