The Saints will take a look at Eric Kendricks next week during a pre-draft visit, a source confirmed.

The UCLA linebacker is widely considered one of the top players at his position and is coming off a season in which he recorded 149 tackles and four sacks.

NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread first reported Kendricks’ visit.

The Saints have the 13th, 31st, and 44th picks in the draft. In a recent ESPN mock draft, Mel Kiper left Kendricks out of the first round.

NFL.com reports that Kendricks also recently met with the Dallas Cowboys.
