Whether the New Orleans Saints are targeting the tight end position leading to the NFL Draft remains to be seen. The Saints, however, are conducting due diligence at the NFL Scouting Combine and held formal interviews with South Dakota State's Dallas Goedert and Oklahoma's Mark Andrews, both of whom project as first- or second-round picks. Formal interviews carry more weight than informal interviews, as a team is limited to 60 sessions in 15-minute increments at the Combine, where there are a total of 336 draft-eligible players. The tight end class of 2018 is widely regarded by draft analysts and prognosticators as deep with talent, and general manager Mickey Loomis agreed with the assessment. "I think there are some players there," Loomis said Friday. "I think there's a good group of players, and so how they fit us, I think that remains to be determined yet. I think, in general, this is going to be a decent draft class."
