If Jack had not been hurt and had some former character issues he would be considered as a top ten pick in this draft.

Do the SAINTS do something crazy and draft Ikgwuonu with the 10 oick of the draft.

Re: CB Jack Ikegwuonu Wisconsin

Absolutely not. There are too many other good prospects with upside and other CBs that might never be a shutdown corner but could step in right away and contribute. He could maybe be worth a mid round pick if we are willing to be patient to let him recover and then develop but taking him in the first round is ludicrous.

Agree I'd take him in the 3rd round he will still be there and so what he sits out a year that like having 2 first rounders next year.

Re: CB Jack Ikegwuonu Wisconsin

It's hard to say where Ike will go but he's one of the guys I'll be keeping an eye on during the draft. Somebody might get a huge steal with this kid because he's a top 20 talent that can be had at a major discount. I'd love to see us get him if he falls to day two. He could redshirt this year while learning the system and what it takes to be a pro on and off the field. Hell why not, we drafted a guy and redshirted him last year!

Re: CB Jack Ikegwuonu Wisconsin

This guy will be around in the 6th rd . The problem with these guys that are injured you have to keep a roster spot open for them . If you place them on the practice squad they have to pass waivers . I would pick him in the 6th -7th rd. Dennis Dixon is a player I think it would make sense picking in the 5TH to carry the clip board for ayear while rehabbing an ACL

Re: CB Jack Ikegwuonu Wisconsin

CBs usually take a lot of time to develop as well, Ive let it be known in previous threads that im all for using a 6th or 7th on this guy. the risk is low, the reward is huge.

He would have not gone in the top ten. Gezzz the media. Bottom of the second or top of the third.
