2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I've been digging Sharrif Floyd a lot lately. Now while I think Florida sucks, I was very impressed with Florida's interior line when LSU played them. I think he has some Gerald McCoy in him....

Papz, he sounds more like a 3-technique tackle and Payton stated he was going to a 3-4 front defense...

But I agree, the young man looks like a top flight prospect...

...and I like his character; he published a open letter to GatorNation explaining his decision and thanking them for the support - not bad...

I've been reading up on him and he played both inside and outside last season for them.

Didn't know that. Sounds like he may have some brains with that brawn... always a plus.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

no bush then what?

Lane Johnson OT 3 Oklahoma Sr 6-6 302 1

Oday Aboushi OT 5 Virginia Sr 6-5 310 2-3

David Quessenberry OT 12 San Jose State rSr 6-5 294 3-4

Terron Armstead OT 14 Arkansas-Pine Bluff Sr 6-5 306 4-5

I could live with the saints stopping the milking the OT and take two in the draft.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

JP's Mock Draft Saints (updated 02/06/2013)

Saints Trade Back Scenario

01 (Trade Down)

01 (20-25) Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia; Height: 6-3. Weight: 236; Estimated 40 - 4.6.

Excellent all-around athlete; Playmaker, Production with Sacks, Pass Defensed, Int; Character Issues - suspended four games for positive pi$$ test...

Why he'll be drafted by Saints? Wouldn't be surprised if the interview of Todd Grantham is to get more insight into reasons behind Ogletree's suspension...

02 Goodelled


02 (52-57) David Amerson, CB, NC State; Height: 6-2. Weight: 194; Estimated 40 - 4.4.

Led nation as sophomore with thirteen (13) interceptions; can move to Safety (position he was recruited for out of High School; will match up well against big, physical NFL receivers; had disappointing Junior Year which will cause him to fall to second round...

Why Saints should draft him? The Saints have to get as physical with receivers as the new NFL passing defense rules will allow which mean physical engagement at the LOS and reducing the passing windows quarterbacks may throw over smaller DBs to WRs...


03 David Quessenberry, OT, San Jose State; Height: 6-5. Weight: 295; Estimated 40 - 5.1.

Rising prospect; Smaller school product that took advantage of his invite at the Senior Bowl and really held his own against some very polished pass rushers.

Why the Saints will draft him? The Saints are different than most teams in that they commit their resources (salary cap) to their interior line; but the tackle play has been less than stellar and rumor is that Bushrod and the Saints will be far apart on contract expectations; a young, quicker, hungrier Tackle may be the ticket to energize what has been one of the best units in the league...


04 Kwame Geathers, NT, Georgia; Height: 6-6. Weight: 355; Estimated 40 - 5.2.

Big Strong Junior Early Entry from Georgia; Good Bloodlines; Excellent Prospect who'll be available in mid rounds as he still needs some coaching...

Why Saints Should Draft Him? This is Jumpy Geathers' Nephew!


05 Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina; Height: 6-7. Weight: 275; Estimated 40 - 4.8.

Another player who's stat lines declined this year after being named First Team All-SEC last season; his big frame offers some unique matchups, however he'll have to match up against slower right tackles; but in a 3-4, his focus will be more on occupying lineman allowing the linebackers to attack...

Why the Saints will draft him? He's exactly the type of value the Saints always seem to find in the mid-rounds; and with plenty of defensive ends available the past two season, he should be available...


06 Ryan Griffin, QB, Tulane; Height: 6-5. Weight: 206; Estimated 40 - 4.9.

Pedestrian numbers for a typically disappointing Tulane Squad this past season- 9GS, 2771 PaYd, PaCp 62.2, 19 PaTD, 11 Int; so what's the big deal? He shows up at the Texas v. The World Game and surrounded with comparable talent to the other signal callers he blows it outta there with Scouts scrambling moving this All-Academic Signal Caller up draft boards...

Why the Saints Will Draft Him? Curtis Johnson, former Saints WR Coach, is the new Tulane Head Coach and will give Sean Payton a no-nonsense, first-hand scouting report that will sneak the Saints an excellent prospect at QB...


07 Cody Davis, SS, Texas Tech; Height: 6-2. Weight: 205; Estimated 40 - 4.5.

Four year starter and excellent tackler and hitter; should offer solid depth and an excellent special teams player...

Why the Saints should draft him? He's just the type of player Sean Payton likes - scrappy, tenacious, overlooked; and the Saints special teams play costs them no less than two games this past season...

i really like his overall skill set. he is this years Micheal Orr of the draft imo. solid player with little hype. shame he had such a good showing at the senior bowl. stock is up. I never included him because of the area of the draft he was in. plus my gut says Bush will not be around in 2013

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Round 1: Dion Jordan - OLB/DE - Oregon
- just makes a ton of sense with our switch to a 3-4 and the need for a rush linebacker. Jordan has also been compared to Aldon Smith, which is high praise!

Round 3: Bacarri Rambo - FS - Georgia
- good hands, plays the run and pass well. Can have some breakdowns at times but is coachable. Has a history of drug use (suspended 4 games last season) but could be a high reward guy

Round 4: Leon McFadden - CB - San Diego State
- A shade under 5'10, but a great cover corner who can stick to receivers. Did great at the Senior Bowl

Round 5: Montori Hughes - DT - Tennessee Martin
- big DT at 6'4 and 328 lbs. Plays with a lot of passion and energy. Knows he has to bring it each play or someone may take his job. We could use a young guy behind Bunkley also

Round 6: Mansi Foketi - OT - West Texas A&M
- a little raw, but has violent hands and is able to mirror speed rushers. Once he's coached up, he could develop into an absolute mauler at LT.

Round 7: Mychal Riviera - TE - Tennessee
- doesn't have the "elite" TE height (only 6'3), but is a good receiver and improving blocker who isn't afraid to mix it up and won't back down.

Really like these two picks...
