2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Barely into December, and well, we can start talking draft...

...Love Draft Talk, Prospects, but in this context - it kinda sucks, but it's reality and know we wanna see our team return to the elite quickly...

...and we'll be drafting in the middle of the pack because of a midseason tease despite several years of neglect by the Scouting dept, especially in rounds 1 and 2...

...but the recent play of Jordan and discussion of a possible position switch for Malcolm Jenkins who's made remarkable plays despite inconsistency directing the defense has given hope for a defensive resurgence...

...yet it's obvious we are way short on talent on the defensive side of the ball and at the Offensive Tackle position...

...so with the College bowl games upon us and soon thereafter Senior Bowls...

...thought we could start building a Big Board of prospects...

...as well as priorities for the team...

Is te'o and OLB or MLB?

If he is an OLB, we should take him in a heart beat, just wondered because we have lofton at MLB

I believe he's OLB. but he could probably kick field goals of we needed him too. Dudes a freaking athlete. No off the field issues. Big heart. High motor. And a great person.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Te'o is an ILB on a 3-4 defense. I had a convo with some friends about how I really liked the kid and wanted him in B&G and then I watched ND play and saw him line up.......No thanks! We have ZERO competent OLBs right now. Vilma and Lofton are true MLBs and do not function well on the outside. I would take Mingo and put him at the Will but even that scares me a little because we need production now. Montgomery is a BEAST, don't look at stats, watch games. He is chipped and double teamed every snap. Matthews from A&M.....YES! Actually any OL from A&M. They do not give up on blocking which is difficult when you have Johnny Heisman running around back there. Trade down and get Mosley might be our best option. He is a solid OLB and could really help the defense.

We need a lot of help, and we don't have the money to do it. We will have to do it through the draft. I will be interested to see what we do in the later rounds as that is where we make our money. We need in no particular order OT, WR, DT, OLB, SS. I think we have enough corners if they develop well under Spags.

I agree it sucks to be looking forward to the draft allready but this season was always going to be hard with everything that happened.Im just hoping we can get the second round pick back.

In trying to stay positive and be happy we will have a high pick and be able to rebuild the defence and that when coach P gets back and we roll through everyone next year.
