Column: Miles Should Make NFL Draft Interesting
by Scooter Hobbs
So whatís wrong with this picture? It appears that our fine stateís flagship college football team, LSU, will have more representatives on hand at the NFL draft than our stateís Saints. LSU will be a lot busier, too, particularly on the first day Thursday when it matters. The Tigers will definitely have one more head coach in residence than the Saints, although you should get really suspicious if somebody at the New Orleans table is wearing a bad pair of Groucho Marx fake mustache-eye brow glasses. A minimum of two and probably three Tigers will be gone by the end the first round, with head coach Les Miles on hand as their special guest, no doubt palm-clapping them on to glory. Cornerback Mo Claiborne is top five, with defensive tackle Michael Brockers somewhere in the middle, and wide receiver Rueben Randle enough of a late first-round possibility to be one of the 26 players invited to New York to squirm in the NFLís famed green room. This much we know. None of them will be Saints.
