The -- involved in Seattle. And how many teams now just trying to move to lose those chess pieces around. To get those type athletes. And I would look at a daily show that these are six -- to recover quarterbacks. -- too -- back as cart before the wrong pol. All it -- since. This is kind of -- -- chess pieces around -- toward -- virtual. But again it's who's the world doesn't. That the well -- RB -- you -- the it was the top rated football player in the court. A moderate children -- who live in California. He had. To reconstructive -- Injuries. -- a deal. And that reached its full potential at the college level at war. But it did any queries would -- she started to get anyway should stall. What -- one's soul when he was in high school and if you date they'll be. It is quite a football. Powell is somebody. The big ball. Certainly partly work habits it was sort of career. Goals we -- -- -- -- problem backers. In either country Republicans stayed at some injuries was column in the rotation. Situation room you know Penn State in the stored in these weapons were well -- don't want you -- -- physical power player. All of very. Very aggressive. Also to have battled some injuries but you've got it. More physical. That linebacker position. And -- and Derek -- Though -- now lose the war on coached. All the former. World but he let a coach on the field so Mort. All graded stakes. -- special -- is also battling. A knee injury. All of that he sustained in October. The one thing of beauty that is another concern. -- kept the high school player and it will reach the end of columns on the branch. -- -- -- until. He got hurt. And he would just what those guys that don't look forward. But he made on play another Upton also will help -- tremendously not special teams. And gave on. -- -- -- Came into Kansas State to work but about real. So you know what -- like about it is you don't you become more critical. And all of you've got the library books. So like what -- Even more impressive. Six way that I expensive -- that's all in my scrapbook. -- signed as undrafted free agents last year seven. -- -- -- -- -- -- So -- who would do. Also up but it would be. That we agents and you know what. You've got somewhere where it is too good for the future. Concede -- can -- Oh what recovery -- well pol. Sincerity. Their opportunity. And really BO. He topical. Egypt the group now known. It can take it. -- -- -- out with a bill. That it is -- Seattle. Mike when we come back just on entry and have this confused did you talk about any free agency had no. And you blow rob acted as a want aren't going come back is that John Batiste. Fortson -- Powell wrote so -- -- -- draft choice saints me. All right -- talk about John that -- as well because. It wasn't your receiver today and did he play corner in college yours is something new for -- in the NFL. Well -- play. Came -- As a receiver pat McGrath -- he bounced around junior college currently played receiver. Started out wind out. And hopefully you know what I need help or -- you there. He's really played pretty well last. Couple years all of these -- quarterback liberal it is only a guy -- One thing you can't teach. Saw balls -- And those big wide arms on. We're in Spain may go six point three time for traffic more with Mike to tell you won't come back and -- any questions or comments to 6018 ceremony until free. 866889087. Innings house a look at terror Robinson traffic on WW. I Tommy Tucker -- WL Todd and Mike to tell EA about the saints. Draft choices and undrafted free agents and Mike in Jordan tells -- about this guy Brandon Coleman wide receiver from rikers I sought to -- played Rutgers. I guess it was the year of Isaak -- -- -- again I'm confused but it is -- solve -- at any rate I got in detritus in the air conditioning for four hours and they understand -- truth. And they seem to have these two giant receivers and I'm just wonder if that's one of. Yeah he's a guy that back actually a deterrence counting on him coming out of high school. Diploma basketball stand now bulky moderately but you know they'll now be taught its new two man. Of what level of basketball player please what is even -- Dominic hit the ball with that they're. Not up against their body. And additional mobile -- Colton came -- an eyelash might get what you came out of -- In Britain Coleman's a bigger version. And -- taller thicker version at this point in time. It would be interesting to see how well yeah -- still you know bill you go to some very impressive numbers. Well at Rutgers it's not that come out and he's a guy that. Especially so -- -- red zone. That you can utilize that six foot spot close -- lived well. Well -- talk about size a cornerbacks if you look at. Brandon cooks. -- 59 and he had this got -- -- I guess if you line him up on different sides. You gotta put the big corner on somebody else. Yeah well. -- is. I think that the difference make obvious question. Well you know Chuck -- has in god told him -- it's got rid of and you get on board in. That. Are going over the top teams we'll play it straight -- fox -- And that's it and so a lot on election what we're -- Home now. Would you put him outside. Just thought that he. Needs to announce -- what happens there these sort of patent which will -- -- catches. A couple of passes. Put -- in the back. And it's not that bullet why. But that sort of having that sort of athlete on the edge makes you let us say differently. And 40% of its characters are comeback routes and it pomp and we -- out of debt means instinctive. He knows that when your quarterback get in trouble he worked his way back to -- -- -- used to -- it was just standing and so. What's in other quarterback in trouble while announcing in technically goes back. A thing and technique place here yeah got a you gotta get a guy space is Ian out -- and when he comes back to the volume you automatically behind him so it's kind of hard to copper. Yeah and also to the one -- his coach Mike Riley told me this summer about -- was back. -- is his ability to catch the ball and nick where is -- mixed in there and you know you click and you know you viewed the back at his heels McConnell 128 passes and -- medals but that's counts. Also. You've got a guy that we. Call football speed you'd put a lot of pop up that you couldn't help sort of all of -- that -- -- in -- With. Not dictates. I don't talk about the guys on your -- -- the saints signed as unrestricted free agents and I need to figure out today you know play -- -- keep coming up on income backgrounds and all of a sudden boom he's gone 631.

Morten -- announcing these -- second pick in the draft and somebody asked me over the weekend that Morton was supposed announces first round pick I don't know I don't know I'll have within me that Michael Tilley is here. Talk about some of the free agents that the saints signed in addition -- draft takes over the weekend. That he had in his draft guide that I -- you glad the saints dynamite. Yeah and in every year. Because this football team his -- gold. Although. I think that killed those big old books -- ultimately riled critics of just ridiculous a couple of war with you man and now we actual Indian guys officially yet. Until those names get on the contract but. What's been reported big shake -- all the tight end on the table museum distort and his -- -- -- you. Fans. But -- will be trouble.
