The Saints had a formal interview with Louisville cornerback Jaire Alexander at the NFL Combine, a source told FOX 8 Sports. Alexander ran a 4.38 in the 40-yard dash, the sixth fastest time at the combine.
Many analysts view Alexander as one of the five best cornerbacks in the 2018 draft class. He's currently projected as a second or third rounder.
He only played in six games in 2017 as junior. During his sophomore season, Alexander had five interceptions. The Saints are in the market for a cornerback to bolster depth at the position.
