Who Dat Dish: New Orleans Saints News, Rumors And Links For 6/19


All is quiet in the world of the New Orleans Saints after the Steve Gleason controversy which, as we predicted, he would go on to forgive via a public statement.

Today we’ll take a look at a potential sleeper undrafted free agent and examine offensive tackle Jason Smith once more.

Let’s take a look.

 

Canal Street Chronicles Asks if Saints Have Found a Sleeper in UDFA RB Khiry Robinson

Per Ryan Edwards:

Robinson transferred to West Texas A&M after earning his associate’s degree from Blinn College. In 2012, Khiry was a huge part of the offense, rushing for 1,621 yards (6.6 YPC) with 15 TDs in 13 games. He also added 38 receptions for 430 yards and 4 TDs. At 6’0″, 220 pounds Robinson certainly passes the eye test with his tough, physical running style while having the ability to make tacklers miss. He doesn’t have excellent speed (about a mid 4.6 sec in the 40), but seems to have good instincts. Just take a look at this video. I simply see Chris Ivory type of potential here, except with better hands.

 

Saints Think They Have  a Sleeper in Jason Smith

Per ProFootballTalk’s Darin Gantt:

“I think oftentimes, you take a peek at a player that was selected as high as he was and graded out as high as he was,” Saints coach Sean Payton said, via Mike Triplett of the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “He is a tremendous worker and has athletic ability.

“So it’s another opportunity, and it’s oftentimes you are able to get a player maybe his second time around or third time around that can come in and find a niche.”
