NFL Draft 2013: Saints Visit With Sanders Commings at Georgia Pro Day

New, comments

Jarvis Jones wasn't the only player the New Orleans Saints were looking at during Georgia's Pro Day.

Of course the highlight, or lowlight if you will, of the University of Georgia's Pro Day this past Thursday was the pedestrian 40-yard dash time of linebacker Jarvis Jones averaging at 4.90. Jones is mentioned as a possible pick by the Saints in the first round at #15 but after that and what is reported as a lackluster performance in drills, he could fall from that.

A player that was reported as being scouted by the Saints at UGA's Pro Day according to WalterFootball.com is cornerback Sanders Commings. Though not a name that some might expect to be highlighted alongside Jones, linebacker Alec Ogletree, and safety Bacarri Rambo, Commings did just that for the Saints.

The one thing that stands out for Commings is his size. At 6'2" and 216 lbs., he still managed to run a 4.41 40 yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine allowing him to keep up with receivers but has the ability to be physical with them as well. Commings registered eight interceptions and 14 pass break ups while at Georgia.

One area of caution for teams concerning Commings though may be his arrest for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend in January 2012 and was suspended for the first two games of the season. He was also ordered to attend counseling for anger management.

That red flag aside Commings could be a nice pick for the Saints as they try to upgrade the secondary. His Pro Day workouts were said to have gone well. Russ Lande of National Football Post reported that Commings was the "smoothest and most explosive player on the field."

Another reason that the Saints could be looking at Commings is his current status on draft boards. Prior to his Pro Day workout he was listed as a possible fourth round pick which could end fit the Saints if he does happen to fall to them.
