3. The Garrett Grayson-Charles Lovett connection

The New Orleans Saints stunned the Who Dat Nation by using a third-round pick on Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson, the man who is now expected to take over for Drew Brees when he decides to hang up his hat.

Grayson will have at least two years to develop behind one of the all-time greats, but he’ll need to begin forming relationships with his future targets now.  However, there will be one familiar face present at minicamp.

Colorado State WR Charles Lovett was invited to join the Saints this weekend.  It will be interesting to see if the two former Rams can connect the same way they did in college.  In all likelihood, one of these rookie wideouts are going to make the team.
