JT O'Sullivan, quarterback, UC-Davis

#14 - Sixth Round (186th Overall)

QB John Thomas (J.T.) O'Sullivan, University of California, Davis - 6'2 - 223

Fiery but raw quarterback prospect who as a junior was throwing passes to current Saints WR Onome Ojo.

As a senior threw for 3,826 yards and 32 touchdowns, 16 interceptions. Career passing efficiency of 169.26 is second best in Division II history. Twice a finalist for the Harlon Hill Award, given to the top Division II player. Can bench 300 pounds.

Tough, physical leader on the field who brings good value to the Saints.

Successful open-field runner but isn't the most accomplished thrower-on-the-run. Solid choice here for the Saints, as O'Sullivan could develop quickly and compete with Jake Delhomme for the second string quarterback spot.
