Saints have a heavy presence scouting the HBCU Legacy Bowl and Combine

It shouldn’t be a surprise that the New Orleans Saints are well-represented at the HBCU Legacy Bowl and Combine this week — the college all-star game’s events and practices are being held at their indoor practice facility in Metairie.

Still, it’s good to see a heavy Saints presence in attendance: college and pro personnel executives Jeff Ireland and Michael Parenton were seen at practice this week, as well as football administration vice president Khai Harley. All three of them are involved in crafting the team’s offseason strategy and draft board, and their input is valuable.

This year’s HBCU Legacy Bowl will be held at Tulane’s Yulman Stadium on Saturday, Feb. 25. Saints quarterback Jameis Winston has been selected as one of the game’s honorary captains, as was Pro Bowl left tackle Terron Armstead, who won accolades in New Orleans after playing collegiately for the HBCU Arkansas-Pine Bluff. The game will be broadcast nationally on NFL Network. Kickoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. CT.
