NFL Draft 2016: Leonte Carroo visiting Saints


The New Orleans Saints need to focus on rebuilding their defense in the 2016 NFL Draft, but there is no question that they will want to focus on helping their offense out. After cutting veteran wide receiver Marques Colston, they could use another weapon on that side of the ball, which is one reason why they are bringing in Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo.

Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reported that Carroo is visiting New Orleans later on today. This comes after he visited the Miami Dolphins, Houston Texans, and New England Patriots.

Carroo is a small wide receiver and has had his troubles in the past, but he seems to have cleared up his name a bit. He could fit into the Saints’ offense and give them a player they could truly benefit from in the coming years.

During his career at Rutgers, Leonte Carroo caught 122 passes for 2,373 yards and 29 touchdowns, all of which came in the last three years.
