    Why a Blocking TE with Hands is such a huge need.

    Really wanted Adam Shaheen, but I thought he was more of an early third round pick.

    Looks like our protege, Ryan Pace, had the same thoughts.

    New Orleans Saints Draft Short List: Round 1 - 11

    McCaffrey was the guy. Damn, it'd made my year to see him as our No.1 pick. Even with Lattimore shockingly falling. Still convinced Carolina took him to keep McCaffrey from the B&G more than they wanted him.

    What is Nick Saban doing with those Bama players; by the time those guys get out of there, they're already physically crippled. Allen has been a fine player, but shoulder arthritis this early? That's scary

    New Orleans Saints Draft Short List: Round 1 - 32

    I really had a problem taking Mixon. We went through all that BS with Junior Galette and I think it's counter productive to make that same mistake again.

    If we had completed the setup to a 3-4 defense last year, how nice would it be to add T.J. Watt this season; this back and forth, waffling on defensive fronts has been the biggest handicap to winning another championship.

    Adoree Jackson went in the first round as it seemed he would; I wouldn't spend more on him than a late second, early third as he'll never be a front line CB.

    Liked Ramcyzk over Bolles from the time draft discussion started.

    Not at all sold on Kevin King.

    Tre White is a Tracy Porter clone; which means someone will reach on him and find he won't tackle and not re-sign him when his rookie contract comes due...

    I wouldn't mind a 3rd rd pick for a TE. I could see using 32 of Howard were there. That would be a luxury pick though. I think I Defense is more criticallr.

    Draft Jake Butt at a discount and call it a day. I can't justify drafting Howard so early. He improved a great deal with his hands this past season, but I think any team that drafts Howard in the top half of the first round will be making a mistake.

    O.J. Howard TE Alabama is a very interesting pick...

    What will the Saints options be at No. 11?

    Very Possible IMO

    Lattimore? please say no. hamstring injuries go all the way back to high school and has been an issue every year since.

    Fournette - i would hope gets the phone ringing. if we take him it changes the draft big time for us. With this pick there is no screwing around you gotta load up the offense to keep defenses out of 8 in the box as much as possible.So a quality back up RT for the future (32 - Garret Bolles OT/OG/DT Utah), a fast solid #2 WR (42 - Chris Godwin WR Penn St), blocking TE upgrade. He needs a FB and room to get up a head of steam so add a back up to the shopping list just encase. Ingram sees his carries going into the dumpster and thinking "now we are a power running team? "

    I see this as a possibility

    01) Cleveland - DE Myles Garrett
    02) 49ers - QB Deshaun Watson
    03) Bears - S Jamal Adams
    04) Jaguars - DE Jonathan Allen
    05) Titans - WR Mike Williams
    06) Jets - QB Mitchell Trubiskey
    07) Chargers – DE Solomon Thomas
    08) Panthers – RB Leonard Fournette
    09) Bengals - LB Reuben Foster
    10) Bills – CB Marlon Humphrey

    Saints: SP needs a streaker and a toy to make Cooks happy

    Im sick of toys . . . our offense is already good . get the defense going and play some Dam football . . . get some pressure on the quarterback, stop the run . . and stop giving up so much A@@ on special teams . . .

    2017 NFL Draft: Will Jabrill Peppers really drop to the Saints?

    I'd rather have a DE or true LB (Foster).

    Too risky for my liking personally. I think the scale tips closer to bust than boom. I'm sure he'll be there at 11 and probably even longer. Remember Shaq Thompson was considered a sure top 10 pick at one point and he very nearly slid out of the first. And he's no game changer today. Relatively solid player I suppose, but one of the elite DE's or LB's is almost surely going to fall to us and I think we could use one of either of those much more than a gadget player.

    The Saints Bi-Week Fix for 2017

    What about the RT from Baltimore, Rick Wagner? He's young and I hear they can't afford to re-sign him.

    The Saints are fine at WR and RB. The Saints need a QB in round 1 ASAP because Brees ain't going to last forever.
