My last Saints mock
Since everyone else is doing it...
1. Justin Harrell, DT, Tennessee
Big, stout, top intangibles, great against the run and can even generate an inside pass rush. Some say he's got durability issues, but the guy played with a torn pectoral against Florida on pure heart and determination, that's the kind of guy I want on my team. Nearly all of our guys at DT are getting up in age, and he could come into the rotation immediately and improve the run defense.
2. Eric Weddle, CB/S, Utah
A matchup nightmare, he lined up at every spot in the secondary and was a turnover terror throughout his career. Held Calvin Johnson to a whopping 2 catches for 19 yards in the Emerald Bowl in '05. Could back up either safety position or play corner in the nickel package; a safety with corner skills in the is just a great bargain. Also a great guy off the field, which will help his stock with Payton and crew.
3. Tim Shaw, OLB, Penn St
Posluszny's partner in crime has played all linebacker positions and defensive end. Athletic, versatile, a team player and a great pass rusher, could see time in passing situations and as a backup, possibly pushing for playing time with Shanle or Simmons and on special teams.
4. Laurent Robinson, wR, Illinois St
A small school speedster that also has soft hands and great athletic ability. Can get open and make tough catches in a crowd. Might need some time to adjust to the NFL, but will add good depth and could turn into a #2 faster than you might think.
4. Michael Coe, CB, Alabama St
Another sleeper, transferred from Arkansas to play for his dad. Has good skills and measurables, was quite productive against top competition and helps to add depth to the secondary.
5. Mike Otto, OT, Purdue
A four year starter in the Big 10 who is tough and mobile, as well as having good size. Needs to work on his run blocking and strength, but has all the smarts and desire to make it. Could also project inside to guard.
7. Paul Thompson, QB/WR, Oklahoma
A project player that started as a QB for the Sooners, and came back to the position for his senior year. Is still raw at both positions, but should have plenty of time to sit and learn while also adding a trick play element at wideout.
Matt Moore, QB, Oregon St
Tough and a leader who always plays best in big games. A good prospect as a backup.
Chandler Williams, WR, FIU
Another speedster who is very raw but has good potential.
Chad Upshaw, TE, Buffalo
Great athlete and pass catcher that is a developmental guy.
Elliot Vallejo, OT, Cal-Davis
A small school kid with great size and potential who needs work on his technique.
George Batiste, OG, Southern Miss
A strong run blocker that needs more bulk at the next level.
Louis Leonard, DT, Fresno St
A big space gobbler who would make a decent run stopper.
Oscar Lua, ILB, USC
A smart, two-down/special teams type who is limited by injuries.
John Bowie, CB, Cincinnati
Very fast and athletic, but without great instincts or awareness.
