It's no secret the New Orleans Saints are scouting the wide receiver spot leading up to next month's NFL draft. And the Saints will get to know USC wide receiver Marqise Lee a little better as Lee told Pro Football Talk on Friday that he will visit with the Saints during the draft process.

Lee has been projected as a mid-to-late first-round pick in next month's draft. He said he would also visit the Panthers, who have lost a slew of receiver this offseason.

The 6-foot, 195-pound wideout hauled in 248 receptions for 3,655 yards and 29 touchdowns in his three seasons with the Trojans. Lee had a down year last season and missed three games in 2013 with 57 receptions for 791 yards and four TDs. Lee exploded in 2012 for 118 catches for 1,721 yards and 17 scores.
