2014 NFL Draft: Marqise Lee to visit New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers


The New Orleans Saints lost some depth in their wide receiver core this offseason and it appears they may be looking to restock it via the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft.

According to the Advocate, former USC Trojan wide receiver Marqise Lee will visit the Saints and fellow NFC South foe the Carolina Panthers.

There likely will be more, but at the very minimum, the Saints are hosting one wide receiver who many think could be selected late in the first round of the 2014 draft in May.

USC’s Marqise Lee told the program Pro Football Talk Live he has visits set up with New Orleans and its NFC South rival, the Carolina Panthers. The Saints have the 27th overall pick of the upcoming draft, and the Panthers have the 28th.

The Saints and Panthers won’t be the first teams that Lee has involved himself with as the wideout did disclose that he has worked out for a few teams, though did not want to specify who.

Much like the Saints, the Carolina Panthers could use more depth at wide receiver though it’s not known how much interest either club has in the former Trojan.
