With Their First Pick of the 5th Round the Saints Select Davis Tull from UT-Chattanooga

You can never have enough pass rushers in a 3-4 defense. Tull is another small school product with big talent. His speed ranks among the fastest defensive linemen and linebackers at this year’s combine and his strength is comparable to some of this year’s most highly respected front seven prospects. While some question his success against lower-grade competition, he has also drawn comparisons to Dan Skuta. It’s a fitting comparison since Skuta went underestimated as a backup for several years before getting regular playing time and starting to rack up sacks.
