Oregon offensive tackle Darrion Weems paying pre-draft visit to New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints haven’t been in the news lately for pre-draft visits other than some offensive players.  They will host another one with Oregon offensive tackle Darrion Weems.

The Times-Picayune’s Kevin Spain reported that Weems is in town right now to work out for the club.  Weems is a 6’5, 302 lb.  left tackle but has also played some right tackle in 2010.

While Weems isn’t a top prospect, the Saints have found gold in later rounds and also in free agency when it comes to offensive lineman.

Weems was part of an offense that were ranked in the top ten in the nation in rushing, scoring, and total offense.  During his time in 2011 in winter conditioning  Weems tied for second in best bench press for offensive lineman with 365 lbs.

He is originally from New Orleans, but Weems and his family were forced to move due to the devastation by Hurricane Katrina and relocated to California.
