New Orleans Saints Draft Picks 2018: Natrell Jamerson goes at 164th overall

NCAA Football: Illinois at Wisconsin Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

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.

Combine Profile Notes

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.
