New England Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler recently signed his contract tender, and the Patriots can officially trade him to any team. However, the New Orleans Saints arent likely to be Butlers new NFL home.

Over the past few months, there were reports going around that the Saints were interested in the one-time Pro Bowler. In fact, New Orleans hosted Butler for a visit in the early stages of free agency. Despite that interest, the cost to get Butler is too high. The Saints are planning on keeping the No. 11 and No. 32 picks, as well as their second-round pick, according to The MMQBs Peter King.

The Miami Hurricanes have the longest, with their 14-year streak from 1995-2008. Alabama has had a first-round pick every year since 2009, so a selection on Thursday night will bring the number to nine years, which ties Florida.

Alabama has the chance to tie or even break another Miami record, too. The Hurricanes currently have the record for the most first-round picks taken in a single draft. In 2004, Miamis team saw six players taken. The Tide could likely tie that number, but theres a is a slim chance that they could break it.

The mock was written before the NFL announced Foster failed his drug test at the combine in February, but the linebacker is still expected to go during Round 1. Foster told NFL Networks Ian Rapoport that his dilutedsample was the result of food poisoning.

Linebacker Tim Williams, safety Eddie Jackson, and linebacker Ryan Anderson have a shot to be taken in the first round, but it seems unlikely.
