Despite many NFL sources saying that LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins will not be drafted because of his connection to an ex-girlfriend that was murdered last week, Saints head coach Sean Payton believes that Collins will be drafted.

Per NBC Sports:

But here’s the thing. A straw poll conducted this morning of a handful of coaches, General Managers, and other team executives resulted in a unanimous belief that Collins still won’t be drafted. At all.

While that was the consensus during an off-the-record discussion, Saints coach Sean Payton said during a Friday visit to PFT Live on NBC Sports Radio that he believe Collins will be drafted — tonight, in round two or round three.

Like I said, if SP says it before the draft it is 100% a lie.

Sean hates LSU. He passed on Eric Reid, Jeremy Hill and countless others. No Tigers on his roster since Devery Henderson. That's why the Saints suck.

That's almost a guarantee that NO won't draft him.

I would take him with 44 no brainer this guy is a starter upgrade at left guard. I realize he is no jean baptiste but a worthy risk in deed

Have to assume the hometown team has the most information, right?

That would have been something if his name got cleared first thing this morning.

Still lost about 9 mill if he didn't actually commit any crime.
