Saints get good look at prospects from Tulane, SE Louisiana


A large contingent of representatives from the New Orleans Saints -- including team general manager Mickey Loomis -- were on hand for Tulane's pro day on March 26.

A total of 36 players, including 11 from Tulane and 10 from Southeast Louisiana, worked out indoors on FieldTurf at the Saints' facility (Southeastern Louisiana had to work out at Tulane's pro day due to inclement weather).

Tulane cornerback Lorenzo Doss (5-foot-10 5/8, 183 pounds) ran the 40-yard dash in 4.47 and 4.48 seconds, and then stood on the rest of his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine. Doss has very good ball skills (he recorded 15 interceptions in three seasons for the Green Wave) to go along with quick feet.

Tulane offensive tackle Sean Donnelly (6-8 1/4, 335) ran the 40 in 5.59 and 5.49 seconds. He had a 26-inch vertical jump and 8-foot-8 broad jump. He did the 20-yard short shuttle in 4.84 seconds and the three-cone drill in 8.4 seconds. Donnelly -- who has 34 1/8-inch arms -- performed 19 reps of 225 pounds on the bench press. An assistant offensive line coach from the Cincinnati Bengals put Donnelly through his positional workout.

Tulane cornerback Taurean Nixon (5-10 3/4, 187) ran the 40 in 4.38 and 4.41 seconds. He had a 38-inch vertical jump and 11-foot-2 broad jump. Nixon did the short shuttle in 4.34 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.16 seconds. He also performed 18 strength lifts. Nixon has good straight-ahead speed, but has a hard time changing directions in the positional drills. However, because of that speed, Nixon is likely to garner interest from NFL teams as a potential priority free-agent pickup following the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Southeast Louisiana quarterback Bryan Bennett (6-2 3/8, 218) went through a positional workout scripted workout run by Jordan Palmer, who spent his 2014 season with the Tennessee Titans. Palmer has been coaching Bennett, who transferred to SE Louisiana from Oregon after losing to Marcus Mariota in a 2012 battle for the Ducks' starting job.

Southeast Louisiana linebacker Isiah Corbett (6-0 1/8, 245) ran the 40 in 4.82 and 4.78 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and 9-foot-2 broad jump. He did the short shuttle in 4.63 seconds and the three-cone drill in 7.08 seconds. He also performed 21 strength lifts. Corbett will likely be a free-agent pickup for a team following the draft as a potential special teams contributor.
