Saints add Secondary/Special Teams Depth with 5th Round Selection
The New Orleans Saints have made their fourth selection in the 2018 NFL Draft during the 5th round, they take a safety out of the University of Wisconsin, Natrell Jamerson.
Jamerson is 5-11, 201lbs out of Ocala, FL. After a couple of position changes, from wide receiver, to corner back, he finally found a home as a free safety last season. He recorded a career high in total tackles (51), tackles for loss (3.5), sacks (1.5), and interceptions (2).
This is a good young piece for the New Orleans Saints defense and they say he'll make his most immediate impact on special teams on kick coverage and potential returner. Some also say that he might be the best special teams player in this draft, a big time 5th round steal for the Saints here.
