Saints News: Nebraska's Randy Gregory Set For Pre-Draft Visit With New Orleans

The New Orleans Saints are in need of help when it comes to their pass rush, and there's a good chance they could address said need in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft.

One name that could be at the top of the Saints' wishlist is Nebraska pass rusher Randy Gregory, who has seen his draft stock fall after he failed a drug test at the recent NFL Scouting Combine.

Regardless, the New Orleans Saints are set to visit with Gregory prior to the draft, per a Fox Sports 1 report -- raising speculation that the team could look past his failed drug test and target him for the raw athletic talent he possesses.

If so, the Saints could have a decent shot at landing him with the 13th overall pick.

"Randy Gregory's positive pot test and weighing 235 at the combine scared off many teams near the top of the draft -- but some of those teams, after due diligence, are feeling more comfortable with Gregory early in the round," Sports Illustrated's Peter King wrote on Monday.

Whether or not the teams ahead of the Saints make a move on Gregory remains to be seen, but keep an eye on the Saints if he falls into their laps at #13.
