New Orleans Saints: 2021 Pre-Draft Offensive Meetings

With the 2021 NFL Draft less than two months away now, many fanbases are vying for any info on who their team has met with.  The New Orleans Saints being one of the teams most needy of draft prospects due to money constraints has some interesting meetings.  In this article, I will:

  1. Name the player, and the source the meeting was announced by
  2. Link the Tweet or website this announcement was made through
  3. Give a very brief description of the player, including round projection

Overall, the concept for this is generally pretty simple for the Saints.  The main reason I am writing about this is it will make fans’ lives much easier to find one big compilation of offensive players rather than scattered tweets.  This list may miss one or two, as there are a ton of reports coming out, but I found quite a substantial amount to go off regardless.

Mac Jones – QB – Alabama

Mac Jones had a fantastic year at QB, and is being looked upon by teams as a fantastic leader.  He relies heavily on his throwing abilities and accuracy when playing, as his mobility is average or below.  Mac met with Saints scouts at the Senior Bowl this year, which he talked about in an interview during the practices there.  He will likely be a mid to late first round pick, in the 20s range, provided someone does not overbuy on him.

Jamie Newman – QB – Wake Forest/Georgia

(See link above)

Jamie Newman skipped this year due to Covid, and opted out of play to protect himself.  However he did make an appearance at the Senior Bowl, and did play in the game, where he did not look half bad.  He was a little rusty which is to be expected when you do not play for a year.  Jamie is a decent QB, who is mobile and has solid short accuracy.  He will need work however to develop his game.  Teams should plan on him going early to mid third round likely.

Javian Hawkins – RB – Louisville

Javian Hawkins had a decent year this season, however, his 2019 campaign was much more impressive.  Racking up 1,525 yards in 2019, he really proved he could be an every-down back if needed.  He has a very slight frame, at 5’9” 195 pounds, which will limit him at the next level and likely become an injury concern.  In the right system, potentially the Saints, and with the right usage amount, he could be a great utility back.  He will likely be drafted around the 4th round or possibly the 5th round by the Saints.

Rondale Moore – WR – Purdue

Rondale Moore is an extremely explosive wide receiver, however has some drawbacks no doubt.  Despite his amazing play, and great abilities, he is injury prone.  He has played a combined 7 games in the last two seasons, which needs to be taken into account by teams.  With that said, his 2018 season showed how impressive he can be.  He threw together 114 receptions for 1258 yards and 12 touchdowns.  He will likely be a late first round pick this year solely based upon his talent.

Josh Imatorbhebhe – WR – Illinois

The other WR the New Orleans Saints have met with is Josh Imatorbhebhe.  Josh really was able to show off his skillset at the senior bowl and has some fantastic catching ability.  Another note is he has an absolutely insane vertical jump.  He jumped 47.1 inches vertically in the video I have attached below, which for those of you who do not know, is higher than the highest in history at the NFL Combine.  

Tommy Tremble – TE – Notre Dame

To wrap up the list of offensive pre draft meetings, we have Tommy Tremble.  Tommy is not much of a blocking tight end, and his value lies mainly in his ability to catch the ball.  He is a solid receiver with fantastic yards and good YAC when applicable.  Overall he would likely be a TE2 for New Orleans Saints if he were to land there.  His draft position is debatable, but likely in the 4th round or so.
