As we get closer to the NFL Draft, it's always an interesting time of year. The Saints are doing their homework right now to figure out who they might hone in on after free agency, but that has to play out first for us to get a better sense of where the team might go in the draft. 

After the NFL Scouting Combine, Senior Bowl and other big college events, who are some of the prominent players New Orleans has met with? Meeting with a draft prospect doesn't necessarily mean said team will draft them. However, we still take stock of who meets with who. Here's a master list that is not exhaustive and will be updated periodically, especially with Pro Days coming. 

Note that a lot of Combine visits were confirmed by the prospect, while others on this list are being reported/confirmed by Saints News Network.
