2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Gholston does seem like a project based on the film I've seen on him, and I'd be hesitant to pick him any higher than the 4th round - even then it might be reaching. Here's some of his highlights: Spartan ...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

JP's Mock Draft Saints (updated 02/18/2013)

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, sacks production, pass defender, Interceptions; Character Issues - suspended four games for positive pi$$ test; Update: Recently arrested in AZ on DUI just days before NFL Combine ...

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; recent arrest will make it more likely that he'll fall, with the Saints veteran leadership and clubhouse, he's the type of bad@$$ we need on defense...


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 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...


05 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!


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 Levine Toilolo, TE, Stanford; Height: 6-7. Weight: 265; Estimated 40 - 4.7.

Red Shirt Junior who's had his moments in the shadows of TE Zach Ertz including an 141 ReYD in the Arizona game and four (4) ReTd on the season; Playing behind Ertz he did not get the same level of coaching and attention and left with a year of eligibility...

Why the Saints should draft him? This guy's got monster ability and just needs some coaching; with Graham coming into a contract year and the offense "limited" while Graham was injured all season; this is the type of insurance policy the Saints need behind Graham...

Those all seem kinda high, by at least a round maybe two.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I would never trade Thomas or Moore for a 3rd rounder... or maybe Thomas if it was the 1st pick of the 3rd, but even then it would be hard to pull the trigger on that.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Pierre Thomas, RB
Lance Moore, WR

no way do you trade these two. something happens to this offense when these two are on the field together. i will reach and use the word attitude. the whole team plays better.

I would rather trade Ingram than these two the offense just looks lost, it is not Ingram's fault. the OL is not built for his style. i am beating a dead horse but i feel he needs the disclaimer repeated

Ingram for second round pick

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I don't think you let any of those guys go for those pick ranks. I'd soonest take the 2nd for Ingram, but even then I'd prefer a high-slot 2nd. 4th for Harper, Ivory and 3rd for Moore, Thomas would be insanely stupid, unless you're just looking to dump their cap space.

I'm guessing we look better because PT is our best RB and Moore is our 2nd best WR?

I have no problem playing our best players. It usually does end up translating to better play as a team.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

While I think Safety is the least of our defensive concerns, the more I read about this Vacarro kid from Texas the more I think he's gonna be a stud safety for years to come.

I think I'd be OK with him at 15, although I'd still prefer DE/DT/OLB.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

We seem to do so much better later in the draft. We oughta just trade that one for some threes fours and fives.
