The Saints completed pre-draft visits with two ball-catching, offensive prospects today. Wyoming wide receiver Robert Herron and Central Arkansas tight end Chase Dixon were both in New Orleans today to meet with the team.
Most fans already know about the Herron visit after Ian Rapoport tweeted the news earlier today:
But Chase Dixon's visit seems to have flown under the radar. A little Twitter sleuthing by yours truly reveals all:
Packing my stuff to leave Florida. Can't wait to fly to New Orleans tom for my visit with the Saints!— Chase (@C_Dixon89) April 8, 2014
Visit with the Saints was a success! Ready to head back home— Chase (@C_Dixon89) April 10, 2014
Robert Herron is a potential mid-round draft selection who impressed during the Senior Bowl. Chase Dixon is a late-round talent at best, if not a likely candidate for undrafted free agency.
The Saints are also looking at defensive prospects, with a visit lined up for Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin.
Colvin tore his ACL during Senior Bowl week after looking very impressive. He is now projected to be a late-round draft pick.
