Will LSU’s Beckham Be A New Orleans Saint?
The Saints have been to the playoffs three of the past four years. They were eliminated by Seattle twice, and San Francisco in that span. Those teams have each represented the NFC in the Super Bowl in the past two years. Saints GM Mickey Loomis & head coach Sean Payton both know, if the Black & Gold is to play in a Super Bowl anytime soon, they’ll have to stand toe to toe with at least one of those teams. That means getting younger and tougher on offense.
We’ll see at least two new starters on the offensive line in 2014, and it’s time to fish or cut bait with running back Mark Ingram. Multiple anaylists say they need a game breaking wide receiver. LSU’s O’dell Beckham Jr. is pegged as one of the top wide receivers in the upcoming draft. LSU’s pro day is today, and Sean Payton is on hand. They tweeted “Which Tiger are you most interested in hearing about today?” The majority of response?…O’dell Beckham. This begs two questions. How interested are the Saints? Will he still be available when they pick at #27?
