Rookie Alize' Mack is fired up about joining the Saints' offense. "Where else would you want to be as a tight end?" said the seventh-round draft pick from Notre Dame, adding that Drew Brees is a "beast."

The Saints signed 10 players who tried out during last weekend's rookie minicamp, including veteran DT Sylvester Williams, who was a first-round draft pick by the Broncos in 2013. They also signed WRs Cyril Grayson Jr. and Micah Wright, RB A.J. Ouellette, FB Michael Burton, C Marcus Henry, OT Ulrick John, DL Geneo Grissom, LB Colton Jumper and DB David Simmons Jr. The Saints released RB Darnell Holland, DL Tomasi Laulile and CB Darius Williams.

We got a brief glimpse of the Saints' rookies during Saturday's rookie minicamp practice. Safeties Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Saquon Hampton both had highlight moments. Gardner-Johnson , a fourth-round pick from Florida, intercepted a pass during individual drills. Then he tipped a pass in full-team drills that was intercepted by Hampton, a sixth-round pick from Rutgers. Another highlight was a terrific contested catch by undrafted Texas receiver Lil'Jordan Humphrey.

It's been a great two weeks for new Saints center Erik McCoy, who got drafted with the 48th pick then proposed to his longtime girlfriend the next day. McCoy has a great opportunity to step in right away as New Orleans' starter following the retirement of Max Unger. But he deftly brushed off a question after Saturday's rookie minicamp practice about whether he expects significant playing time as a rookie. "I'm just looking to come in and compete," said McCoy, who described New Orleans offense as a "really good fit." "I'm loving the scheme so far. I'm still learning, still making mistakes, and I've got a long way to go. But I'm definitely loving the scheme."

New Orleans sent this year's fifth-round pick to the Jets to move up 11 spots for Florida safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson in Round 4. The Saints have now traded up a whopping 17 times in the past 13 drafts. They haven't traded down since 2007.

The Saints have traded up for the second time this year (and the 17th time in 13 years) to select Florida safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson with the third pick in Round 4. Once again, they're filling one of their top long-term needs. Starting safety Vonn Bell is heading into the final year of his contract, and the Saints also released veteran backup Kurt Coleman this offseason. Gardner-Johnson, who has great speed, should also contribute on special teams. He was a versatile safety in college, playing in the slot, in the box and deep at free safety. He returned three INTs for touchdowns.

New Saints center Erik McCoy ran the fastest 40-yard dash of any offensive lineman at this year's scouting combine. But he didn't quite flirt with the combine record for an offensive lineman, which is still held by Saints OT Terron Armstead (4.71 seconds in 2013).

Here's the details on New Orleans' trade with Miami: The Saints traded their late-second-round pick (No. 62 overall), a sixth-rounder this year (No. 202 overall) and a 2020 second-rounder for Miami's No. 48 pick and No. 116 pick (fourth round).

The Saints traded up yet again – this time for Texas A&M center Erik McCoy with the 48th pick in the draft. McCoy, who started all 38 games in his college career, will compete for a starting job against newly-signed free agent Nick Easton in the wake of Pro Bowl center Max Unger's retirement. ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay both said they were surprised the 6-foot-4, 303-pounder fell as far as he did. The Saints obviously felt the same way. They have now traded up 16 times in the past 13 drafts, including nine deals that involved future years' picks.
