2012 Draft - Saints Mock Drafts

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; No more Michigan/Ohio State slow-footed defenders. No more Tennessee Vol receivers. (though if Meachem moves into Colston's spot and exceeds, I'll gladly review my position) No more So-Cal short defensive tackles....

Lewis would be a nice addition at the WLB, but I do think that there are other LB prospects who would better fit the Saints'/Spags' system of playing. Nevertheless, I'd be happy with his selection - he'll have to work on his tackling though.

I'm not that high on Norman, but he would probably be the tallest CB in the Saints' roster, so I wouldn't be against the pick. But I'd like to see them getting after either Casey Hayward or DeQuan Menzie if they'll pick a CB this high.

Tony Bergstrom would be a great pick up for the Saints at RT.

Travian Robertson could be a good pick up, but I think he might still be available at lower rounds, 6th-7th.

I like the pick of Jack Crawford, but I doubt he'll be available at his point in the draft. I'd at least exchange Crawford's pick with Robertson's pick. He'll be a work in progress for sure, but he might end up being a JP-P type of a player for the Saints under Spags' tutelage.

I can't argue with Cattouse in the 6th round, since he would be great for depth as he can play both safety positions.

Antoine McClain could be a replacement for Nicks if everything works out with his progression to the NFL level, but, in any case, he's a big pile of humanity who'll be difficult to push around.

I'd be fine with the pick of Tank Carder with the last pick, but I would like for the Saints to also pick up a WR prospect at some point in the draft, and the 7th might be a good spot for a low-risk/high-reward type of a pick at that position.

I think he's a Sean Payton type of player very good athlete who's smarts can translate during the game - opposite Martez "Balls Off - Lights Out" Wilson - you'd see an instant transformation...

Watch the youtube highlights on this guy - he could even play Free Safety and be a very good one...

Yeah, I found some more film on him and, if there, could be another one for us in the fourth round gem category...

I had him in round six, but buzz is he may be moving up slightly...

Crawford's motor is the question, but he could be a round four guy...

He's a good all-around athlete to have and I'm not so sure he couldn't develop into a starter...

We could only hope...

Well, if we do lose he who shall not be named or the other kid from Tennessee who we're still waiting to take off, we've got guys like Arrington and Morgan who need playing time - Brees will make them all look and play better...

Yeah, just saw that... even Mayock said: "that is not a good number."

How about stating the obvious. I think he was/is Mayock's highest projected LB or at least one of the highest.


I mean Dontari Poe had almost the same time with 100 lbs worth of additional meat on him.

I would love Poe in a Saints uniform.
