Rookie wide receiver Adrian Arrington of Cedar Rapids is already looking like a strong candidate to make the New Orleans Saints’ roster though he was just a seventh-round draft choice.
“It’s hard to compare anyone to (Saints receiver Marques) Colston because he was such an amazing thing for a guy who came out the way he did,” Saints quarterback Drew Brees said this weekend, according to Bayoubuzz.com.
“I think the day-to-day improvement Arrington’s showing is similar to what Colston did. Arrington’s showing up a lot on film, making plays, just doing the right things, lining up correctly, making the right split, running the right route, if the route adjusts he’s running the right adjustment, blocking the rights guys, playing fast, playing physical. That’s what we want to see.”
