Jermon Bushrod - 6045, 315, 4.92, Towson

A very solid IAA OT who will likely make a name for himself inside at the next level. Selected to play in the inaugural IntaJuice N-S All-Star game. Massive and mauls people in the running game. Sets up pretty well in pass pro too. Packs a powerful punch.
On the ground a bit too much. Can be beaten by speed rushers. Feet are pretty good, but not NFL OT good. May have a slight stamina issue but certainly didn't show it his senior year.
One of the better sleeper prospects in this draft, Bushrod ran a pair of 40s under 4.95 seconds after weighing in at 315 pounds. A solid athlete who was a four-year starter in college, Bushrod is being projected as a left tackle.

Was nothing learned from last years draft with the run on Safety's?
Trust in Payton, trust in the plan the man has......The DT is the only spot that hasnt been addressed, but keep in mind we upgraded at LB with Simmions being added, and we now have two new corners on this team.

It's hard to go wrong drafting depth for the front lines. With that said....a good project DT would be nice to see.

The only spot that worries is the OC line now in the next couple of years. only because of injury. FA in the next couple of years should not be a big deal. Brown is the only big ticket item on the line right now. Lets see what this big kids got. Still wish for another DE/DT type

Yep - more for a DT than DE. I think that's was what we ALL wished for before draft day.

Still as I said the, I was not impressed with any DT.

I wish the Saints had thought differently because if push comes to shove, I will freely admit that most of you guys have more Football knowledge in your eyelash than I do in the whole of my body.
