MOBILE, Ala. -- The New Orleans Saints' coaching staff, front office and scouting department have turned out in full force at this year’s Senior Bowl week in Mobile -- reluctantly for some of them, since they would much prefer to still be coaching in late January.
But it’s on to 2014, and this is where most coaching staffs annually begin the process of getting a feel for draft prospects, as well as holding staff meetings to review their current roster with an eye toward the future.
General manager Mickey Loomis is expected to speak to the media on Tuesday. Assistant coaches, however, aren’t likely to visit with the media this week. When defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was approached on Monday morning, he cracked, “Mum's the word until training camp.”
For details on how the various draft prospects are looking this week during practice, you can follow the Senior Bowl coverage from ESPN and Scouts Inc. on this blog, which requires Insider access.
