Ansah?

I just worry that he's too much of a project...

And I just don't trust Oregon product Dion Jordan...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I think we should take a serious look at that kevin minter also, that guy is a fast LB

It sure looks like everyone thinks our pick will be between ansah, jordan and mingo - we just have to hope whichever one we get will be our difference maker

All three have the potential to be difference makers but not straight away.

I think Mingo is probably the safest bet out of the three, he is one hell of an athlete and can locate the ball quickly, the only real negative is when he does get blocked he struggles to disengage.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I like Minter a lot... but it's very unlikely we can take him. I think he's projected to be a low first/seconder rounder. Unless we move down, we don't have a legitimate shot.

Ansah?

I think the same can be said of all three. With that said, if we're going to bust on a guy this year, I rather it be on someone with an exponential amount of potential. I'd hate to go the safe route and have the same result. We need a big time difference maker.

Well, I'm bullish on Ogletree; haven't liked a linebacker this much since Clay Matthews...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I fully expect to add a TE in the draft and I haven't seen Levine Toilolo projected to go very highly... Imagine having Jimmy Graham and another TE that's 2 inches taller than him on the field at the same time! I'm really high on that possibility!

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Taller than Jimmy, now the fade in the endzone would be like stealing plus it would be funny to see a formation where Colston was the shortest WR out there

Yeah, Imagine a two TE set with Graham (6-7) and Toilolo (6-8) together with Colston (6-4) and Toon (6-4).

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

drew can only stand so tall and so long on his tip-pie toes to se over the line. height is key then add in those arms dam large target area

Levine Toilolo Stanford
6-8 260
Bench 17
Arms 34.48
Hand 10.28

Dion Sims Michigan State
6-5 262
Bench 22
Arms 33.18
Hand 10.48

both are also good blockers to boot. they better get help in this department also

need to add

Vance McDonald Rice
6-4, 267
Bench 31 reps
Arms 34 3/8
Hand 10.48

odds are he will not be a saint but his move up draft boards maybe the reason we might have one of these other TE available to pick.
