Brevin Jordan, TE, University of Miami

The Saints are in need of a tight end.

They let veteran Jared Cook walk in free agency by prematurely releasing him. Alongside of him, they decided to release tight end Josh Hill leaving only Adam Trautman, a rookie last year, on the roster.

Most likely, New Orleans will find a second tight end in the draft. In the middle of the second-round, Brevin Jordan from the University of Miami should be available. The junior Hurricane had a very good college career.

In the NFL, tight ends are becoming more prevalent. Jordan totaled 105 receptions for 1,358 yards and 13 touchdowns in 26 career college games. That averages out to 4.03 receptions and 52.23 yards per game.

Standing at 6-foot-3, Jordan and Trautman would be a great young pairing for the Saints. It would be interesting how Sean Payton would utilize a two TE set. They would also most likely get a second third-round pick out of it.
