The Saints entered Thursday night's first round with two picks in the first round.
The 6-foot-6, 311-pound force spent his first two college football seasons playing for Division III University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point before transferring to Wisconsin's flagship university in Madison. That could be an indication of where he could play while protecting future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees. "And it was just hard to think about, with the number of needs we have, a 2-for-1". I am not going to try to be the big man on the team.
"I talked to them at the combine". Kind of got to talk to them a little bit and see what they had to say. Taking someone like Kansas State pass rusher Jordan Willis would have been a reach at that spot, and you can't control the order the players are selected.
"Look, he's with New England, and I don't think anything's changed".
"Conley is a long guy that is always in good position and makes plays on the ball. Obviously I've loved how he's worked all year and I'm excited about him".
The "in time" thing is what bothers me. And they're getting it.
What initially made you think that you wanted to walk away from the game? Really just one full season. If that stat alone doesn't show consistency, I honestly do not know what does. The Saints can't experiment here without finding a player to fill Jordan's shoes on the left edge.
"It's some of the greatest for sure". "The surgeon said there was less damage than he expected and it went well", Ramczyk said.
When the Saints get on the clock at 32, what were you thinking?
When you received the call, who was the one that was on the line with you?
"Obviously, I was surprised".
Well, again, I like Lattimore, but I hope he can contribute early. When you watch his tape, you become more convinced that the only way he flops in the National Football League is if he can't stay on the field. Flying from team to team (made) it hard to keep up with it, but I did it.
"Right now, I'll win", he said.
"I've played outside typically, but I can adjust and learn how to play inside".
