Saints agreed to terms with former Clemson S DeAndre McDaniel.

It's a nice fit. McDaniel struggles are primarily in coverage, and the Saints are good about keeping their strong safeties from having to roam around the back end too often. McDaniel plays the run reasonably well and has an obvious nose for the ball with 15 interceptions in his college career. He may have to excel on special teams early to avoid the practice squad, though.

Clemson S DeAndre McDaniel is Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki's No. 2-rated undrafted free agent available for after the lockout.

McDaniel should be able to sign next week. A playmaking strong safety, McDaniel racked up 15 picks at Clemson but struggled in coverage. Boise State S Jeron Johnson is Nawrocki's top undrafted rookie. They are followed, in order, by Central Michigan LB Nick Bellore, Rutgers S Joe Lefeged, and Auburn WR Darvin Adams. Mark Herzlich and Dane Sanzenbacher are further down the list.

Clemson S DeAndre McDaniel ran unofficial forty times of 4.64 and 4.68 at the Scouting Combine Tuesday.

"I would not trust him on the back end," observed NFL Network's Mike Mayock. "I like his ball skills, but I don't like his back-end instincts." McDaniel racked up 15 interceptions at Clemson, but there are concerns about his cover ability. He'll have to play strong safety at the very best in the NFL.
