I'm sure that ranking had nothing to do with a new system that previous players said takes a long time to master.

I'm sure that ranking had nothing to do with a pathetic pass rush for most of the season.

I'm sure that ranking had nothing to do with our CB's being abused most of the season.

I'm sure that ranking had nothing to do with poor coverage by our LB's.

I'm sure he's the reason why our entire defense is about to set the record for the worst defense in NFL history.

I'm sure you understand all this.
Yeah your right... lets blame everyone around them for their failures. Jenkins belongs at CB.
Harper belongs on the FA market.

On a positive note, Armstrong was reportedly selected to play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl set for Jan. 19 in Carson, Calif."


all my headcase picks are players with skills and maybe ready for a second chance. thats why i included him. if was drugs or something like that i would not include him as a option.

there are a few really good players out there i would not touch with a ten foot pole. he is not one.

Size speed hands and a solid tackler. yes he is raw but what he did show two years ago gives him a worth a gamble pick. better pick than a few of our injury prone picks in the late rounds the past few years

Thoughts?

Margus Hunt, 6'7 DE, Southern Methodist

Name: Margus Hunt (+) Coming off shoulder surgeries

Margus Hunt, DE, SMU
Height: 6-8. Weight: 280.
Projected 40 Time: 4.83.
Projected Round (2013): 2-3.

I really looked at this kid for a long time. i could live with the pick.


I really like the talent in the 2nd and the 3rd rounds.

After the top 10 in the draft you got those 10 20 were two or three are nice picks and then the rest have that upside label that drives me nutz. then 20 on down you get back to reality.

check this out

t's never too early to start thinking about next year's draft. Not every player on CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman's "Freak List" is eligible to be drafted next year, but the list is a good starting point for predicting players who will dominate draft talk in 2013. Feldman's No. 1 freak is the kind of player who has the potential to redefine what is possible at the annual event.

Leading the list is SMU DE Margus Hunt. Hunt is 6'8" 280 with an 82" wingspan. He can also bench 225 35 times, which is ridiculous at that arm length. SMU track coach Dave Wollman predicts that Hunt will run a 4.6 40-yard-dash and bench 225 45 times at the combine next year.

Those numbers would blow away the measurables of 2012 combine star Dontari Poe, who went 11th overall to Kansas City despite poor tape at Memphis. Hunt projects as a 4-3 end, which is an increasingly tough position to find in the draft. The skyrocketing stock of Bruce Irvin, Chandler Jones and Shea McClellin, the top three 4-3 ends drafted last month, shows just how much teams coveted players with upside who fit that position. It's not difficult to imagine the Minnesota Vikings or Miami Dolphins taking Hunt in the top 10 next year if they don't improve greatly this season.

Wollman also raved about Hunt's pure athleticism, calling him "the most kinetic aware of any athlete I've ever had", which includes 19 Olympians. Hunt won the gold medal in the shot put and the discus at the 2006 World Junior Championships, the first athlete to ever win gold in both events in the competition. The Estonian had no experience playing American football until 2007, which puts an exclamation point on his virtually unlimited potential.

Hunt's command performance of last season vs. Pitt

Even if Hunt is too raw to play a big role on defense early in his inevitable NFL career, he'll make an instant impact on special teams. He has blocked 14 kicks in his three years playing football at SMU. With four more this year, he'll break the NCAA record for combined blocked kicks in a career. That ability will just be the cherry on the sundae for the team that gets this future household name in draft circles.

he may not be top ten but if he puts up numbers like this and shoulder is good he will fly up the boards

You put Defensive end in there twice but I think you meant Defensive Tackle.

SMU has really been producing quality NFL defenders in recent years; curious to know how the Saints have them ranked - cause drafting two defenders from Wake Forest still has me puzzled...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Sean Porter, OLB 6-2/230 Texas A&M

Though he has excellent speed and fluidity in coverage, he relies on this speed to beat linemen rather than proper technique to engage/disengage in physicialy; one of the better pass coverage linebackers in the 2013 draft...
