With the 179th overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints go back to offense and grab up a guard from Syracuse, Andrew Tiller.

Triplett thinks they got some scoop from a former Saints coach:

Obviously #Saints got some good inside info on Tiller from #Syracuse coach Doug Marrone, the former Saints OC.

Triplett also sez.....

New #Saints G Andrew Tiller - 6-4, 324. JUCO transfer. Started last two years. First-team all Big East in 2011.

NFL Draft Scout ranks new #Saints G Andrew Tiller at 435 overall. Obviously they aren't seeing eye to eye at this stage of the draft.

We're getting so deep into the draft now, that I can't see straight, but I'm sure you can manufacture some thoughts on this pick, right?

Next up for the Saints is their final choice of the day, which is in the 7th round, #234 overall. Hang in there with me, ok?
