A lot of good lookin' kids left. At this rate this could be a banner year for UDFAs.

R1 (15) LB Alec Ogletree, University of Georgia

R2 Forfeit

R3 (75) OL Barrett Jones, University of Alabama

R4 (106) LB Chase Thomas, Stanford University (from NY Jets)

R4 (109) DE Nicholas Williams, Samford University

R5 (144) QB Ryan Griffin, Tulane University

R6 (183) FS Cody Davis, Texas Tech University



R1 (15) FS Kenny Vaccaro, University of Texas

I didn't like this pick because of several reasons. First, I felt the same athleticism was available in a linebacker, and the Saints front seven has been neglected far too long; second, NFL security must have found enough concerns too make Ogletree fall past the Saints et al to the Rams with their second pick of the draft which allowed the Rams to take the risk on a rare WOW/Impact Athlete; Third, regardless of his timed 40 (all Combine/ProDay events should be in pads), with Jarvis Jones and two quality five technique Tackles still on the board, I still question the wisdom; fourth, this was a deep draft for Safeties with very little in separation of same, we could have waited till later rounds to take one or even two; Finally, we need a safety that can make interceptions and other plays and Vaccaro have very little on film to suggest this; that said Harper sucks that much with Jenkins right on his tail so if Vacarro isn't starting at FS by the close of training camp, this will be a bad start to the Ryan era - Grade: D...


R2 Forfeit

With Federal Legal sanctions coming again over the Vitt/Vicodin scandal, will we lose other picks? There needs to be some accountability over this; some friends that I've talk to suggest the Goodell BountyBeatdown was as much to do with the Vicodin Controversy as it was the Bounty Fiasco...


R3 (75) OL Terron Armstead, University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff

WoW - Guess Miracles to offset mistakes really happen; Have like this kid since we started this thread; never imagined he'd fall to us in the third and it was a no brainer grabbing him; he should take over by the time training camp closes at either Tackle unless he struggles with technique or the playbook; rally excited about this pick; wanted San Jose's Quessenberry here, will gladly take a young man who took charge of his life and made an impact to get drafted; Grade - A+...


R3 (82 from Miami) DT John Jenkins, University of Georgia

This kid has really impressed me the way he worked very hard on his conditioning, something that will be a red flag with him for his career; he's lacked some things in his life that many of us take for granted; he's massive and he's an athlete; If he understands that his work/path has just begun, he will be a great value; Great Fit and natural Nose Tackle...

That said, did we need to spend BOTH fourth round picks to get here?!?

Could we not get a Third Round pick from the Jets?

Like Jenkins, again disappointed in the Saints Draft Management for paying what they paid, but they got lucky with great value being there and made the move to get him; Grade - B-...

R4 (106) Traded to Miami (from NY Jets)

Measurables may have made LB Chase Thomas, Stanford University fall through the draft; but he's a natural pro 3-4 OLB with a high motor and excited we got him - will remind alot of folks of Scott Fujita; he will be a better OLB fit that what we have already...


R4 (109) Traded to Miami

The Steelers got a steal in DE Nicholas Williams, Samford University who would have been a great fit at DE in the Saints new 3-4; more on that later...


R5 (144) WR Kenny Stills, Oklahoma

If there's a position we've kept whiffing on, it's Wide Receiver; we get Colston in the seventh round and guess Nature is balancing things the rest of the way; like Coach Payton, I like tall Wide Receivers to gain advantages over six foot and less defensive backs; Stills has a Pro Pedigree and can run and is disciplined in his routes; but the hands are suspect and that's a big red flag; there was greater value and need and with limited picks, this was a luxury pick we didn't need to take; Grade - D...

We caught a break that QB Ryan Griffin, Tulane University made it through to the Saints as an UDFA; Really hoping we can keep him on the roster and pulling for him to move past the recent FA signings and make this squad so he can develop...


R6 (183) DE Rufus Johnson, Tarleton State

I like real, feel-good stories and, like Jenkins, this wil be a story to watch unfold; but why are we still picking 4-3 Defensive Ends?!? Available players were FS Cody Davis, Texas Tech, FS Bacarri Rambo of Georgia, DE Joe Kruger of Utah, DL Nicholas Williams of Samford, DT Jared Smith of New Hampshire would have been much better value; the Rams got another guy I really liked as an UDFA in FS Cody Davis, Texas Tech University; the Rams got a steal here; I will be pulling for Johnson, but the Saints Draft Management really drop the ball again; Grade - C...

Overall Grade > C

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

hell if we traded one of the fourth for a hand full 7ths we would have been golden

John Jenkins - i see Jonathan Sullivan in the kid. work out to get the money then back to the same old? I hope not, in the press box eating wings. His lack of excitement and ho hum attitude in his interview really did nothing to endear me to this pick either. It was kinda what i expected

In the fourth my picks

Jesse Williams, NT, Alabama
Brian Schwenke C California

one for the defense one for Drew

in round 6 i have to see what this kid is all about but i really never made my mind up about the best of Fragel or Williams but i went

Michael Williams TE Alabama

Yet another pick for Drew

I am watching the waiver wires and want see if either of these two become available. which i seriously doubt.

any ho i am going to be forced to watch 4 of my defensive favs play in our division twice a year. man i hope i was wrong about them all

Atlanta Trufant
Carolina Short AJ Klien
Tampa Banks ( watch the kid from Buffallo - Means they took in the 6th)

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I think Jenkins last minute effort, overweight at the combine, max effort/leaner version at his ProDay was a positive sign...

But the talent that was still there in the fourth?!?

Really disappointed in the Saints Draft Management...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I know everything right now is opinion, but this has to be the best draft we've had in 5 years.

I just don't understand the negativity towards this draft.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

i have stopped saying anything in the other posting and will infect my gag rule again. it will be a silent time till i eat my crow. which i hope i do.

maybe we should do it by private msg.

it is what is and i will let it all runs its course.
