When the Saints selected Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield with their seventh round pick in last weeks draft, many fans of Who Dat Nation, including myself, had the same surprised reaction: Who!? Naturally, Saints fans had limited knowledge of available quarterbacks in this years draft other than the big names because, well, that's not really a position of need for the team.
In an effort to get better acquainted with Sean Payton's newest toy, I decided to take advantage of the awesome network we have here at SB Nation and enlisted the help of our very own Oregon St. blogger, Jake Bertalotto of Building the Dam. Who better to clue us in on what to expect from Canfield than the guy who has been following his college career the entire time.
Jake made some time to chat with me and answer a few questions about Sean Canfield that I thought would educate us all and perhaps shed some light on why the Saints were so high on this guy. Our conversation can be found after the jump. Thanks a bunch to him for all of this. Hopefully we'll be able to do this for many or all of this years draft picks.
Dave: Selecting a quarterback in the seventh round of the draft was quite a surprise to many Saints fans. Give us a little background on Sean Canfield. A primer, if you will.
