Pat Yasinskas, of espn.com, says the New Orleans Saints would have interest in Purdue defensive end Ryan Kerrigan (#94, above) if he was available when the team picks in the first round of the NFL draft on Thursday night.

Atlanta Falcons

Dream scenario: It’s no secret the Falcons are looking for a pass-rusher because John Abraham is getting older and the team has no other defenders who can consistently pressure quarterbacks. This is a draft deep in defensive ends, but there probably will be a run on them from the mid-teens into the mid-20s. If someone like Georgia’s Justin Houston or Clemson’s Da’Quan Bowers somehow fell to No. 27, the Falcons would be elated.
