LSU offensive tackle Chris Faulk visited the New Orleans Saints today, according to a league source— Aaron Wilson (@RavensInsider) April 16, 2013
Faulk was one of the many LSU players that decided to leave early instead of return for another season in Death Valley. It was really puzzling in his case since Faulk missed the entire 2012 season due to a right knee injury.
Starting out at right tackle, Faulk eventually slid over to the left side which right now is an area that the Saints appear to want to develop, although they have Charles Brown and newly signed Jason Smith set to face off for the starting spot.
At the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine Faulk (6'6", 331 lbs.) only participated in the bench press due to still being on the mend from surgery. He did 25 reps of 225 pounds. At his Pro Day he merely participated in position drills and nothing else.
Once considered to be a top prospect, Faulk has slid down the board on draft rankings. CBSSports.com currently has him ranked as a fifth rounder, which is why he might be appealing to the Saints who have a limited number of picks this year.
