Did the New Orleans Saints find a gem in the final round of the NFL Draft?

As odd as it sounds, Marcus Murphy, the diminutive running back from Missouri, could be one of the best draft picks the New Orleans Saints have in camp this offseason. The Saints finished with a fun choice who could potentially light up a preseason game or two. The 5-foot-9, 198-pounder is a runner/receiver/kick returner who had more than 5,000 all-purpose yards and 25 touchdowns...

Garrett Grayson was ‘the one’ for New Orleans

Leading up to the 2015 NFL Draft, there was plenty of speculation that the New Orleans Saints would use a draft pick on a quarterback who could eventually develop into the successor for Drew Brees. On Friday night, the Saints made that move when they drafted Garrett Grayson out of Colorado State with the 75th overall selection. There were some rumblings that the Saints were targetting...

The New Orleans Saints used the No. 75 overall pick in the NFL draft on Friday to grab Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson. “This was the one.

Grayson was a full-time starter over the last two seasons and started 35 games over four seasons...

Washington Huskies: Hau’oli Kikaha taken in 2nd round by New Orleans Saints

Ex-LSU lineman Collins still undrafted as uncertainty swirls

  Given the legal uncertainty surrounding offensive tackle La'el Collins, New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said he could not say he would even take the former LSU standout in the last round of the NFL draft on Saturday. Payton isn't alone. When Baton Rouge police acknowledged this week that they have asked to speak with the All-Southeastern Conference lineman in the shooting...

Is Andrus Peat just the player the New Orleans Saints need?

When the New Orleans Saints were on the clock at pick No. 13 last night, there were thumping hearts and nervousness to rival that of a bride and a groom right before they state their vows—at least among Who Dat Nation. Many were saddened, myself included, that their No. 1 target, Clemson EDGE Vic Beasley, was gone. But not just off the board, he went to the hated rival Atlanta...

Saints Look to Day Two After a Successful Round One

All the hype, all the studying of tapes, and scouting reports led up to last night in Chicago. And one little "aside" - I think that the NFL has hit a home run with the moveable draft concept. It gives other fans the opportunity to get excited for their team. And the build up to last night's first round was great.As far as the Saints, wow...Andrus Peat was somewhat of a curveball...

Saints could seek more defenders on NFL draft's second day

METAIRIE, La. (AP) The Saints are slated to pick three times during Friday's second and third rounds of the NFL draft and can still use help on defense and at receiver or tight end. New Orleans still hasn't picked an edge pass-rusher, something they could use after their defense ranked 23rd in the NFL sacks per pass attempt in 2014. Coach Sean Payton also could be seeking another...

The New Orleans Saints welcome Stephone Anthony to the Big Easy

First it was the offense, now it’s the defense’s turn for the New Orleans Saints. Stephone Anthony, welcome to the Big Easy. With the need for help on defense, Anthony at linebacker from Clemon makes perfect sense. At 6’3” and 243 pounds, this makes so much sense to help anchor the middle of the defense. As Derek Stephens and Rob Rang of CBS Sports, explains, he has the ability...

Payton's overhaul of Saints continues in draft

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Saints coach Sean Payton has made it abundantly clear he believed New Orleans' roster needed more than a little tinkering. Part of his plan to revamp a squad that went 7-9 last season included cutting ties with some big names, from prolific receiving tight end Jimmy Graham to former Pro Bowl offensive lineman Ben Grubbs. From rising young receiver Kenny Still to...

When will the New Orleans Saints draft a wide receiver this weekend?

It’s going to happen. For the New Orleans Saints, picking up a wide receiver in the NFL Draft this week is not a matter of “is” it happens, rather more of “when” it happens. And with three picks in the top 44 selections, there is a good bet a big-name player will be streaking down the sidelines in the Big Easy next season. Mike Triplett of ESPN.com echoed my thoughts in...

Six targets in the first round of the NFL Draft for the New Orleans Saints

We know from comments made by Sean Payton, Mickey Loomis, and other higher-ups in the New Orleans Saints organization that the way they draft is by having a cloud of possible options for their selections in each round.

What to Expect from the Saints’ Wide Receivers

Since 2006, only once did the Saints offense find itself ranked outside the top-five in total yards. During that span, this passing attack has been the catalyst of that success. So to say that Drew Brees has led the best vertical offense for nearly a decade would be an understatement.Surprisingly, in that time, not one Saints’ receiver has been named to a Pro Bowl. This speaks...
