Mayock says Saints should draft OL in first round

Two days before the scouting combine in Indianapolis begins in earnest, NFL Media’s Mike Mayock thinks the Saints should select an offensive lineman with the 27th overall pick of the upcoming draft.

Mayock, draft expert for NFL Media, mentioned three names as possibilities during a Tuesday conference call with reporters: Notre Dame tackle Zack Martin (a 6-foot-4, 305-pound redshirt senior), Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandijo (a 6-foot-5, 310-pound junior) and Stanford guard David Yankey (a 6-foot-5, 314-pound redshirt junior).
