Saints Stay Defensive with CB Johnny Patrick with the 88th Pick


The Saints stayed on the defensive side of the ball with another third round pick, going with Johnny Patrick, defensive back from Louisville.

Here’s info on Patrick from CBS Sportsline:

The University of Louisville held its annual Pro Day for the outgoing senior class in front of the NFL scouts at the Howard Schnellenberger Football Complex on Thursday afternoon. A total of 27 teams were represented at Pro Day, including six running backs coaches who were there to work out former Louisville standout Bilal Powell, who rushed for 1,405 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2010. Powell, who played in the Senior Bowl and was a part of the NFL Scouting Combine, worked out in front of the scouts before injuring himself on his second attempt in the 40-yard dash. The day consisted of the players testing in the vertical jump, broad jump, bench press, 40-yard dash, pro shuttle and the three-cone drill. The scouts closed the day by putting the players through position work. Cornerback Johnny Patrick ran a solid 40-yard dash time and worked well in during his position work. Patrick, who led the Cardinals in interceptions with five last season, was also invited to the Senior Bowl, but didn’t play because of an injury he suffered in practice. Patrick was pleased with his performance on Thursday. “I was pleased with how I did today,” said Patrick. “I ran a 4.46 today, which was better than I ran at the combine. I feel very confident in my ability and I look forward to seeing where I fall in the upcoming draft.”
