WATCH: Travin Dural jukes defender, catches touchdown pass from Drew Brees
Former LSU WR Travin Dural didn’t have to travel far to find his NFL team.
After going all seven rounds without hearing his name called at the 2017 NFL Draft, Dural signed with the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent.

Now, he’s fighting to make the Saints’ roster, and plays like the one below — where he jukes his defender, catches a long pass from QB Drew Brees and sprints to the end zone — certainly won’t hurt his case:

Though Dural didn’t see much action in LSU’s offense last season, catching only 28 passes for 280 yards and one touchdown, playing with Drew Brees is a lot different than having Danny Etling as your quarterback.
That’s not a knock on Etling — it’s just that Brees truly is one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. If anyone can help Dural live up to his potential, it’s Brees.
