2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'd be happy with Werner or Moore if they go defense, why do I have the feeling it will be OT or WR in the 1st round...

I'd be fine with an OT since the good free agents for that spot will cost a boat load of cap space - cap space the Saints don't really have.

...but some of the clips on that Werner kid do present him in a very good light, so he might be a really good pick as well.


I just wish the Saints had their 2nd round pick, because it would make the 1st round pick less of an gamble, as it stands now, they must hit on that 1st rounder or make a good trade down.

Sedrick Ellis has been a bust. He'll be hitting free agency this March, so it's unlikely he'll be back with the team. Canadian Akiem Hicks has played well, but the Saints need someone next to him who can rush the passer on the interior. Sheldon Richardson, who has been phenomenal this season, could be that guy.




73. New Orleans Saints: Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State

The Saints aren't getting much pressure on the quarterback. Cameron Jordan has improved in this department over the second half of the season, but Will Smith looks like a shell of his former self. He's due $10 million in 2013, so he obviously won't be back.


I like it when players have names like Tank, it just sounds like he is a bad ass. Hes a combination of a tank and David Carradine.....lol.....He can just kick his way through the offensive line, then roll through the quarterback like a tank.

I'm just saying that they should really try and fill as many holes in the draft as they can, because the new CBA makes rookies very affordable and they need to make some savings in the 53 man roster.

They can always try and use some of those savings to sign a proven veteran impact player from the FA pool if they decide not to re-sign Graham during this offseason.
As good as the Saints are at finding players deeper in the draft this could be a good strategy. Trade all of the earlier picks for deeper ones plus additional picks and we could get twice as many.

I have to agree with you on this.....Brees has lost a few steps and we should find a young QB to learn underneath him while we still have him. I know this will sound stupid, but I have to say; what if we picked up Joe Montanas kid as an undrafted rookie free agent? The combination of his father, Drew Brees, and Sean Payton could turn him into the next future hall of famer. Also, if he doesn't turn out to be that good we dont lose a bunch of money. Just a thought.......

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Has anyone heard how Greg Romeus is getting on with his rehab?
Him and Toon could make a big difference to who we need to draft.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

We need pass rushing DE's and CB's who can actually cover, for starters. I don't think either position can really use the excuse that the other is the reason for their problems. People say that the lack of pressure makes the corners have to cover too long, and I agree with that 100%. But when there is pressure the QB seems to always find someone wide open to chunk it to. Both positions have been unbelievably awful.

The safeties make some plays, but consistently get burned in coverage aswell. And Malcolm Jenkins, despite the occasional amazing play, is one of the worst form tacklers I've ever seen at the position.

But we need OT's just as bad as anything. I can remember arguing with a certain member on here in the off season about that very point. He couldn't believe that I would want anything on offense BEFORE a defensive player, because we were just so stacked on that side of the ball... You know who you are... How about that offense this year? If Drew is being paid 100 million to be the franchise player, you must protect him. I do believe that defensive help is just as important, but if the right guy isn't there, get an OT.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

That's a good question, and I've been wondering about it also.

I think Toon will be fine to join the practices when they start in the offseason - how well he'll fit into the system and how good he'll be is a question no one can answer at this point in time, but he'll be another big body to throw to.

Romeus is more of a question mark, even if he has successfully rehabbed from his second season ending injury and can join the team in the offseason - I don't think they can count too much on him contributing since at this point one has to wonder if his body can really allow him to play at the NFL level without injuring himself, and how much toll these injuries have taken on him mentally, but also in terms of being out of football for years.
