Thought about that, but we have Jabari Greer, Patrick Robinson, Corey White, Elbert Mack and we have a limited number of picks and an even tighter cap situation where we may have to sign a proven, yet average player just to fill a role...

I still think Marcel Jones might very well be the answer for the RT position going forward - he has all the physical tools and with guidance he can be a very solid RT for the Saints.

On the other hand, one can never have too many OTs, but as the draft is so heavy on defensive talent - which the Saints desperately need - I'd like to see most of the picks be used on that side of the ball.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Saints have had no more than six picks in a draft since 2007 NFL draft.

This has caught up to them...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

My Mock Draft(optimistic of course)
____________________________

1. (Trade back, gain 2nd Rounder)
Pick: LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia/DE Sheldon Richardson, Mizzou/DB Kenny Vacarro, Texas

(Of course if Jones, DJ, Ziggy, Mingo, Werner, etc fell id love to have em, but im trying to be more on the realistic side)

2. CB David Amerson, NC State

3. NT Brandon Williams, Missouri Southern

4. CB/KR Tyrann Mathieu, LSU(Former)

5. OT/TE Best Available(we can all "hope" a David Quessenberry - SDSU or Dion Sims - MSU type of player is available but thats highly unlikely. but hopefully we can uncover one of those gems again)

6. OLB/DE Quanterus Smith, Western Kentucky


Let me know your thoughts fellas. we can all dream cant we? lets be real though...something is gonna happen thats gonna catch everyone by surprise, its bound to happen. this draft is gonna blow alot of ppls minds. all it takes is one team to change the whole draft.

It will be hard finding a trade partner this year IMO.Its a deep draft but lacking in sure fire starters.Most of the top players have question marks and unless somebody falls in line with a prospect I do t think it would be easy to trade back.
Not keen on Matheiu with a 4th personally. 'd rather get a big CB,too many question marks over him,height,off field issues.
