With the NFL Draft fast approaching, I’ll look back at my top 3 key prospects the Saints have met with for this year’s draft.
Prospect 1: Parris Campbell
Former Ohio State WR Parris Campbell is projected to go anywhere as high as first round to as low as third round according to 247Sports. Campbell had a great season with 90 receptions with just over 1,000 yards. He measured in at 6′ 1 7/8″ and weighed in at 205lbs. He provides a speed the Saints need as Ted Ginn Jr is getting up there in age.

Either A.J. Brown or Parris Campbell would help the Saints greatly. With Dez Bryant still a mystery, the Saints should add depth to the receiver position. Brown is projected to go high second to mid third round.
Prospect 3: Will Grier
QB from WVU, Will Grier, would be a great asset for the Saints. If he could sit under Brees and learn from one of the greatest, he’ll thrive in the league. The Saints do have Teddy Bridgewater but he’s only under a one year deal.
Will Grier landing spot power rankings:
1) Pats 2) Chargers 3) Saints 4-31) literally anywhere 32) Giants 33) AAF 34) XFL 35) Washington Football Team
In the loss to the Jazz in Utah, Booker set the third highest single-game total in team history, going 19-34 from the field, 5-8 from three-point range, making 16-17 free throws, and scoring 59 of his teams 92 points, along with 4 assists and 4 rebounds, in 41 minutes played. Towards the end of the game, the Jazz intentionally fouled to prevent Booker from getting 60.
This comes on basically the two year anniversary of when Booker dropped 70 points in Boston against the Celtics, becoming only the sixth player in NBA history to do so. Booker is also the fourth player in NBA history with multiple 50 point games before he turns 23. The Phoenix Suns have themselves a future superstar.
Gronkowski is coming off a season where he put up 682 yards on 47 catches and had 3 touchdowns in the regular season, along with 13 receptions for 191 yards in the postseason en route to a Super Bowl victory.
“Gronk” played 9 seasons with the Patriots, and he did it all. Gronkowski was a fan-favorite player, known for his fun-loving personality, who also performed on the field, putting up monster numbers in his arguably hall-of-fame career. A 3 time Super Bowl champ, 5 time Pro Bowler, and 4 time first team All-Pro, Gronk finished his career with 7,861 yards on 521 receptions, and 79 touchdowns in 115 games.
At 6 foot 6, over 260 pounds, Gronk was a physical freak, and at his peak, he may have been the best tight end to ever step on a field. If it wasn’t for injuries, he may have even been the consensus best tight end ever.
Rob Gronkowski gave his all to the game of football and leaves at the top, a champion.
