No. 24 pick might yield familiar name for New Orleans Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Good size and versatility as he could line up outside or inside in a 4-3 alignment or outside in a 3-4 alignment. More of a power pass rusher than an edge rusher IMO. He showed he was the best player ...

Good size and versatility as he could line up outside or inside in a 4-3 alignment or outside in a 3-4 alignment. More of a power pass rusher than an edge rusher IMO. He showed he was the best player on the field in the Sugar Bowl against a very athletic Arkansas offense. I think the cons of him not being as productive as expected his senior year are overrated due to the injuries (ankle) he played with. Showed what he is capable of when healthly and motivated in the Sugar Bowl. I like other pass rushers' ceiling in the draft, but Heyward's versatility would serve well in our defensive line rotation.

Damn I hope not!!! This guy is gonna be a bust. If we go DE in the first I say we go Ryan Kerrigan or Aldon Smith. If they are both gone then I say we should look at LB's and go DE in the 2nd. We need to get 2 LB'S in the first 3 rounds. I'm tired of over looking the LB position when it comes to the draft.

I was actually mad when we drafted Jenkins because the guy I wanted was Clay Mathews, although I think Jenkins will be a very very good player for many years to come and even a pro bowler, Clay is just on a different level.

Yep, he was the 28th pick and I believe we had the 14th pick, but oh well that's in the past, we need to address the LB position in this draft.

In the first give me either, Ryan Kerrigan, Aldon Smith, Akeem Ayers, Muhammed Wilkerson or Mark Ingram (only if those defensive guys I mentioned are gone)

I would love for either Bruce Carter or Martez Wilson to fall into our lap in the 2nd round.
