The Saints don’t want to see the Buccaneers draft Gregory Rousseau.

Gregory Rousseau was a junior at the University of Miami this season. However, Rousseau opted out of the 2020 season and ended up only playing two seasons in college before declaring for the NFL Draft.

Originally, Rousseau was expected to be a mid-first-round pick. But he has since fallen way down draft boards. So much so that in CBS Sports full analysts’ mock drafts, Rousseau could be a high second-round pick or he could be the last pick in the first round.

During his only active year in Miami (his freshman year he only played one game), Rousseau managed to accumulate 54 tackles, 15.5 sacks, 19.5 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery in only 13 games.

The Buccaneers have also been linked to several offensive linemen since their team doesn’t have much need. However, pairing Rousseau with Suh on a defense loaded with firepower would not be what the Saints wanted to see heading into the NFC South this year.
