Former Georgia Tech football player and NFL Draft hopeful Anree Saint-Amour had a private workout with the Tennessee Titans on Thursday according to reports.
There seems to be one Georgia Tech draft hopeful who’s stock is rising heading into the final weeks of preparation for the 2019 NFL Draft. Defensive end Anree Saint-Amour on Thursday according to a report by Eric Edholm of Yahoo Sports worked out privately on Thursday for the Tennessee Titans.
Saint-Amour, a three-star prospect coming out of North Gwinnett High School (GA) committed and signed with the Jackets as part of the 2015 recruiting class. He committed to then head coach Paul Johnson and his program over offers from Iowa, Michigan State, Minnesota, and Stanford among others.
Over his first three years on The Flats, Saint-Amour didn’t flash too much on the field, racking up just 56 tackles over his first 23 career games including 7.5 sacks. The Georgia native, however, had a breakout senior season by Tech standards with career highs in tackles with 47 and tackles for a loss with 12.0. He also tied a career high in sacks with four while also ending up with two interceptions, three fumble recoveries, and his first career touchdown. It was a strong first step in his process of raising his draft stock.
While he didn’t get invited to the NFL Combine in February, he was invited to one of the NFL’s smaller regional combines. At that combine, he tested and performed well including posting a 4.60 forty-yard dash time. That would’ve been the second-best forty-yard dash time only behind Michigan’s Rashan Gary at the combine of 4.58 for defensive lineman. He performed well in the other tests according to reports and continued to raise his draft stock.
At this point, it’s hard to say where he stands in terms of getting drafted come this year’s NFL Draft. If anything, it appears that he at the best will be a late day three draft pick, getting selected somewhere in the final two rounds. That being said, even if he doesn’t get selected, he should be signed rather quickly following the draft thanks to his strong senior season and strong testing numbers.
The Titans, who are hosting this year’s NFL Draft from April 25 to April 27 in Nashville currently hold three, day three draft picks. They own a fourth-rounder (No. 115), a fifth rounder ( No. 147) and a seventh rounder (No.211). If on the board come the seventh round, watch that Titans No. 211 pick for a possible landing spot for the former Yellow Jacket.
