CB - Robert Alford, Southeastern Louisiana
OLB/DE - Michael Buchanon, Illinois
OLB/DE - James Gayle, Virginia Tech
S - Bacarri Rambo, Georgia
LB - John Simom, Ohio State
CB - Logan Ryan, Rutgers

other options as well, but u get the point.

Not keen on Matheiu with a 4th personally. 'd rather get a big CB,too many question marks over him,height,off field issues.

Absolutely, and the Saints won't be the only team looking to trade down and gain a later pick because of it, so it probably is best not to even consider that scenario and be pleasantly surprised if it happens.

Actually this draft is very deep in starters - you just don't have those "wow" players this season; of course, we don't have all our picks because of commissioner penalties and a not so thought-out FA signing...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

the problem is the top players well aint that great. the standouts that are in the top ten are not there this year. so everyone is open to trading down. the price maybe right this year for targeting players and moving up. then again maybe not

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Thought Star Lotulelei would be worth moving up to get; but that heart condition is as scary as the spinal stenois Jones has - No Thanks...

While I have an apparent man crush on Ogletree, while not as bad as the one with Clay Matthews a few drafts ago, I think he's the impact player moved to the outside to complement Lofton and take this defense into a top five unit, I wouldn't be disappointed to move back, grab Jesse Williams and gain another second rounder (do I still have false hope of a reversal?!?)...

Those are great options, but a lack of offensive tackles is the problem we have...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

see i have been playing around with the idea say take a chance in the 5th or 6th for

Michael Williams, TE, Alabama
Height: 6-5. Weight: 269

and beef him up a bit if needed and train him to be a TE/OT. he already has the blocking skill. 2 for the price of one type of move

heck he maybe ready to back up now as it is. plus you get a true tackle eligible player

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

So, 52 pages here and it looks like the one thing we agree on is we need tackles -on both lines and just generally when our defense is on the field. Right?
