Penn State Guard DeOn’tae Pannell visits the New Orleans Saints


The New Orleans Saints have brought in Penn State offensive guard DeOn’tae Pannell according to his agent Brandon Taylor.

Born in Detroit, Michigan played high school football at Wylie E. Groves High School.  While there he played at center and also defensive tackle.

While at Penn State, Pannell played both the guard and tackle positions on the offensive line.  This would be good for Pannell since it shows he can be versatile.

Along with being 6’5 and 325 pounds, Pannell is known for having not only a positive attitude but also a very good work ethic when it come to working out and game preparation.

The Saints are probably interested in Pannell not only because of his versatility and work ethic, but also because of his ranking in the draft and their limited picks.

Pannell is not projected to be drafted in the upcoming 2012 NFL Draft and will likely become an undrafted free agent.  The Saints visited with him to probably get a better look so they could pick up the phone as soon as the draft is over.
