Was a really really good college player. If I remember, he's kind of a tweener. 4th round pick by the panthers a few years ago. One year in the UFL and one year in the arena league. May not be bad for depth as a 3-4 DE.

DL Josh Downs, LSU
Not sure the Saints are a great fit for him. Strong and quick kid, but injured a lot. Not sure he's a 3-4 defensive lineman. More of a prototypical 4-3 DT.

3rd round pick in 2013. He is a mammoth of a man standing at 6'6 350 who is very quick and agile. Will play NT behind Bunkley. Should be our starter in 2 years.


also if people want to help add some stuff for the players please comment. This is a lot of players so any help would be appreciated.

He went the route of Russell Shepard and told Minny that he already signed with New Orleans

I was kind of looking forward to Blake getting a shot in New Orleans.

he still had a pretty decent season despite very incompetent QB play @ Auburn last year. He was basically the only receiving threat AU had in 2012.

Edit: oh well...

He was someone I liked coming out of USCe, but I think he's being brought in more for a OLB. Seems too light for a 3-4 DE at 6'1" 241 lbs.

I remember him in college. He was a 4-3 DE for USCe. I think Carolina tried to make him a LBer in a 4-3. But like I said, he's kind of a tweener.

More like OLB. Did really good his final year at USCw as an OLB. Then he got drafted as a DE by Carolina for their 4-3. The 3-4 is a good spot for him. He has the talent and some experience. I actually wanted the Saints to draft him a few years ago

How is he eligible for a rookie camp if he's started a couple of games?

re: List of Mini Camp participants



Who is eligible to attend:

First year players and rookies. Per the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, a rookie is any player who has never signed an NFL contract, or a player who has only signed a contract to a practice squad. A first year player is one who has signed an NFL contract previously but has not earned a season of pension credit (think Nick Toon). So the Saints will invite all their draft picks, undrafted free agent pickups as well as several long shot players trying out.


Seems like this would eliminate beck
