Saints News 7/7/13: Saints Chose Wisely On 3rd-Round TE In 2010

New, comments

Today, Brian Allee-Walsh reviews the Graham-Hernandez choice faced by the Saints in the 2010 draft (whew, they dodged a bullet there, didn't they?), Tyrann Mathieu is inspired and educated by the rookie symposium, and rumor has it that the NFL is considering not inviting ineligible players to the scouting combine.

Graham may be a fire-breathing dragon, but at least he's not a murderer.
