Saints: Alabama A&M DL Frank Kearse Next Draft Gem?

According to a league source with knowledge of the situation, Frank Kearse is drawing a lot of interest from several teams including the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints are always looking for ways to improve the offensive or defensive sides of the ball, they never overlook any potential draftee.

They have found players in schools that most of us have never even heard of, their roster is proof enough for that comment.

If you are a fan of the Saints you need to go and Google Frank Kearse and see what the fuss is all about. This guy is a stud and can be a big role player down the line for the Saints.

I think Shaun Rogers was a great addition for the next year or so but he is not a young man.

Kearse really started opening eyes during his pro day and will be a great addition for the Saints. (See his numbers below). Keep in mind other teams are looking at him also.

He has already conducted an individual workout for the Steelers.

The 6-foot-4, 315-pounder is on every one’s radar because of his ability to anchor the defensive line. Can you imagine him along with Shaun Rogers and Sedrick Ellis, man what a defensive line that would be.

A native of Savannah, Georgia Kearse was an offensive lineman in high school who was recruited by Georgia, Georgia Southern and Central Florida before winding up at A&M after some academic issues endangered his eligibility.

Fifteen teams attended his Pro Day workout where he ran the 40-yard dash in 5.2 and 5.3 seconds and recorded a 30-inch vertical leap, an 8-7 broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 22 times.

The All-SWAC defensive lineman posted a 4.66 in the short shuttle and a 7.8 in the three-cone drill.

Kearse played in the Texas vs. the Nation game, the HBCU Bowl and was named a team captain and second-team All-SWAC. As a senior, he posted 30 tackles, 14 for losses, one sack and two forced fumbles.

As a junior, he registered 33 tackles, 12 for losses, 3 1/2 sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery and a blocked kick.

As a sophomore, Kearse had 30 tackles, 3 1/2 for losses, one sack, two interceptions and a pass deflection.

The potential is there, all the Saints need to do is show him the drive that is needed to be a pro player in the NFL.
