Sean Payton Visited Fort Collins and Nobody Seemed to Notice
The New Orleans Saint picked CSU quarterback Garrett Grayson in the recent NFL Draft. Grayson was the 11th pick of the 3rd round and 75th overall. He was also the 3rd QB taken in the draft after Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, who were the first two picks of the first round.
According to an exclusive story in the Fort Collins Coloradoan, Saints Head Coach Sean Payton was in Fort Collins on April 27 to take a look at Grayson, and we didn't even know it. He apparently went to a Starbucks, a Subway, arrived and departed from a major airport and nobody seemed to notice. Maybe he was wearing dark sunglasses.
Grayson finished fifth in the nation in passing efficiency at 166.2 as a senior in 2014 for Colorado State University with 270 completions in 420 attempts for 4,006 yards and 32 touchdowns with seven interceptions.
Garrett is expected to compete for the back up job to Drew Brees for the Saints this coming season.
