If he were to actually take him, no doubt in my mind he'll be a good RT right off the bat that we could develop into a LT. Would make a nice pick in the mid rounds so we wouldn't have to draft a LT high... if we were not to sign one via free agency.
Every year we pick a wounded warrior in the draft. i think he is right up there on the short list in the fourth. There are a few nice wounded OT that are out there that may or may not be ready for 2013 but worth thinking a year on IR might just payoff big time.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Oregon LB Kiko Alonso spent extensive time with five teams, according to draft insider Tony Pauline.

Alonso had dinner with the Miami Dolphins, breakfast with the Arizona Cardinals then interviewed "extensively" with the San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints and Tampa Bay Bucs, per Pauline.

2013 Saint's Draft Mock (JeanPierre)

[Updated 2013/03/16]

This is the schedule of players I'd draft based on where the team is at this point of free agency...

R1(15) Saints select LB Alec Ogletree, Georgia

R2 (45) Forfeit (OL Barrett Jones, Alabama)

R3(75) Saints select QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas

R4(106) Saints select OT Chris Faulk, LSU

R5(137) Saints select NT TJ Barnes, Georgia Tech

R6(173) Saints select SS Cooper Taylor, Richmond



If we trade down and pick up a second round pick, our draft could look something like this; we'd would also send either a player (i.e. Ivory? Harper?) or a 2014 draft pick...

2013 Saint's Draft Mock (Trade Down Scenario)

[Updated 2013/03/12]



R2 LB Jaime Collins, Southern Miss

R3 OL Barrett Jones, Alabama

R3 QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas

R4 OT Chris Faulk, LSU

R5 NT TJ Barnes, Georgia Tech

R6 SS Cooper Taylor, Richmond



Again (repeat) some of this could be smoke screen and some could be legitimate; but these are the guys the Saints have met with...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

No kidding... There's no way in hell we draft a QB in the 3rd. Also, why would we draft an Inside Linebacker in the 1st round when we have Lofton, Hawthorne, Vilma, etc? Come on JP!

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Because we have no backup at present and a lack of talent backing up Brees is a big gamble...

Second, Drew has maybe two good years left with his surgically repaired shoulder...

Third, the value would be there and the player could start developing now...

I do see your logic JP, but I have to call BS on your second reasoning.
