2014 AA Writers' Mock Draft: Pick No. 27

With the 27th pick of the 2014 AA Writers’ Mock Draft the New Orleans Saints select…….

27. New Orleans Saints
Calvin Pryor
Safety, Louisville

Malcom Jenkins is set to become a free agent and has never really lived up to his draft position. Taking Pryor here allows Rob Ryan to pair him with the talented Kenny Vaccaro giving them a fearsome safety duo similar to Seattle’s Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Pryor has good size at 6’2″, decent speed and ball skills, and is probably best known for his physical play. As team scouts showed up by the dozens to watch Teddy Bridgewater play they couldn’t help but notice the athletically gifted Pryor and his stock began climbing. Don’t be surprised if he’s off the board earlier than this come draft day (I can think of a team drafting before this spot that could use a safety). However, should Pryor be available I think the Saints would love to add him to their defense.
