The Saints will host Utah State linebacker Nick Vigil for a predraft visit later this month, according to a source.
As a junior, Vigil recorded 144 tackles, including 13.5 for a loss, and three sacks.
The 6-foot-2, 239-pounder was also among the most athletic linebackers at the combine. His times in the three-cone drill (6.73 second) and 20-yard shuttle (4 seconds) ranked among the best times at any position.
Vigil played in the middle at Utah State but might be more of an outside linebacker in the NFL.
