New Orleans Saints Draft Picks 2017: Al-Quadin Muhammad goes at No. 196

The Saints used their one pick of Day 3 to take another defensive end.

NCAA Football: Virginia Tech at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints made their lone selection of Day 3’s NFL Draft (assuming they don’t trade), and used it to take Miami defensive end Al-Quadin Muhammad.

From NFL’s Scouting Report:

BOTTOM LINE: Muhammad has the physical traits to warrant a look even though he hasn't played football in two of the last three seasons. He's a basic pass rusher who doesn't have explosive burst upfield and he still has work to do with his hands. At this point, he's a developmental outside linebacker with character baggage that could have a heavy impact on his draft status.

Grade the Saints 196th overall pick.
