Drew Brees praises Saints 2019 draft class

The New Orleans Saints aren’t very patient during the NFL Draft, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing if they continue to hit home runs on guys like Marshon Lattimore, Michael Thomas, and Alvin Kamara.

Even Drew Brees is endorsing the quality over quantity mantra, having served as the keynote speaker at Mississippi College’s 2019 Scholarship Banquet earlier today.

When the Saints traded up to select Erik McCoy in the second round as the heir apparent to Max Unger at the center position, it was the 16th time they had moved up in the last 13 years.

Even though no other team had fewer picks than the Saints this weekend, Brees is still signing off on the class of 2019. “Coming out of the draft even though we didn’t have a first round pick and had limited picks after that, I felt like they did a great job of maneuvering and trading up to get some guys I know were ranked very high on their board. Guys that they feel like can come in and make an instant impact for us, and only time will tell. But I’m excited to get into practices here in a few weeks, and see what we’ve got.”

Today, NFL Communications announced that the Saints would hold their rookie mini-camp May 10th through the 12th.
