Day 3 of the NFL Draft rolls on for the New Orleans Saints. They made their first pick on Saturday by taking Florida State’s Rick Leonard, an offensive tackle, at 127th overall in the 4th Round. Their second choice? Wisconsin safety Natrell Jamerson at 164th overall in the 5th Round.
Jamerson is still learning the position, but he has an interesting blend of instincts and speed. He’s a willing tackler, but his lack of size shows up when he has to take on bigger running backs heads-up. His experience as a jammer, covering kickoffs and returning kicks could give him the edge for a backup safety spot on the roster at some point.
Grade the Saints 164th overall pick.
