(WVUE) - In the lead-up to the NFL Draft, the Saints have been linked to quarterback prospects repeatedly.
FOX 8 counts five college signal callers that have reportedly had various levels and forms of contact with the team.
General Manager Mickey Loomis addressed the media Wednesday morning and downplayed the perceived link.
"Well...I think we look into the quarterbacks every year," Loomis said. "We have for the last few years, we have to keep an eye to the future. And yet, look what happened to our quarterback situation as well so I think that's just part of the process every year.
"We may have had a few questions that we needed answered that in the past we haven't had to have answered so I don't see it as being dramatically different."
The Saints are set to make the 12th overall selection in the draft Thursday night.
