Jay Tufele, DL, University of Southern California

Jay Tufele is a junior entering the draft out of the University of Southern California. However, Tufele didn’t really play this season due to COVID-19 and the team so he has only 24 games experience in two years with the Trojans.

However, with the Saints likely to trade Malcom Brown and not re-sign Sheldon Rankins, they will be looking to replace that spot in the draft. Tufele is an instinctive run blocker, but he can also get to the quarterback with a force.

In his two seasons, Tufele had 64 tackles, 10.0 of which were behind the line of scrimmage. He also added 6.5 sacks and one interception. Tufele would add a dynamic to the Saints defensive line that Rankins provided over the last couple of years.

The Saints might benefit more from a second, second and third-round pick than they will from their No. 28 overall pick. These three players would be appealing in the second round that might make them pull the trigger on a trade down.
