Purdue DE Ryan Kerrigan Wanted by Three NFC South Teams Including Saints

ESPN’s Pat Yasinskas says that three NFC South teams, including the Saints, want Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan, and it would be the Falcons that would have to leap over others in order to get the sack stud.

The guy who might be the perfect draft pick for three NFC South teams, might be getting as close to the division as he’s going to come Monday and Tuesday. That’s when Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan will visit the Atlanta Falcons. It’s easy to picture Kerrigan, who had 33.5 career sacks in college, stepping right into Atlanta’s defensive line rotation. It’s just as easy to picture him someday taking over for veteran John Abraham as the team’s top pass rusher. But here’s the catch on why Kerrigan probably isn’t going to make it to the NFC South, the Falcons have the No. 27 overall pick and the Saints are No. 24 and the Buccaneers No. 20.
