The New Orleans Saints could draft a quarterback with the 31st overall pick, but it is not necessarily a sign that the franchise is planning to transition away from Drew Brees.
Bryce Petty of Baylor was worked out by the Saints.
“I think you’re always looking to get a young quarterback in the program,” Mickey Loomis said, via ESPN.com. “We’ve got one in Ryan Griffin that we like. And if an opportunity presents itself, hey, we may take another one here. But I don’t see the end for Drew Brees on the short-term horizon. At least I certainly hope not. But it does take time for these quarterbacks to develop. And we’re conscious of that. We evaluate the quarterbacks. And obviously if an opportunity presents itself to take one at the right time, we’re not afraid to do that.”
