New Orleans Saints Draft Picks 2017: Trey Hendrickson goes at No. 103

New, comments

The Saints use their last 3rd round pick of Day 2 to get a pass rusher, and it’s Florida Atlantic’s Trey Hendrickson.

NCAA Football: East-West Shrine Game Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints have been extremely busy on Day 2 of the NFL Draft, leading off with safety Marcus Williams for their second round pick. The Saints then traded to get the 67th overall pick from the 49ers to take running back Alvin Kamara. They then used their 76th pick to take linebacker Alex Anzalone. Now, they add in what we would presume is their final pick of the night by taking defensive end Trey Hendrickson at 103rd.

From NFL’s Scouting Report:

BOTTOM LINE: More of a second-effort sack man than a quick-win specialist, but he did show some edge rushing ability at the Shrine Game practices that didn't flash as often on tape. His lack of length on the edge will be a turnoff for some, but he flashes enough to warrant a third-day draft selection as a backup 4-3 defensive end who could continue to develop as a rusher with additional work.
