What scouts are saying:
Where he’ll go: I’ve seen him going to New Orleans in multiple mocks,
even though he seems to project as a 3-4 linebacker rather than a 4-3 end. But he is local, and that’s what front offices really care about.
Oh, there’s your twitter! @unsilent The Saints are going 3-4, dummy. Way to ESPN that one up.
