Re: Saints' Next DE/DT

Lemoiner of Auburn just declared.

Auburn defensive end Corey Lemonier will enter the NFL draft, he said Monday.

Lemonier can play defensive end or be a pass-rushing linebacker in the NFL.

"I feel I'm ready for the next level," Lemonier said.

Lemonier is the 24th-best available player for the NFL draft, according to ESPN's Scouts Inc. ESPN's Todd McShay projected Lemonier could go No. 26 to the Baltimore Ravens in his initial mock draft.

Lemonier said he was told he may be a third-round selection, but he hopes to improve his status before the draft.

"I've done everything I wanted in college," Lemonier said. "I feel I am ready for the next level. I am also ready to support my family."

Lemonier had 5.5 sacks this season, 9.5 sacks as a sophomore and two sacks in limited action as a freshman.

It might be DE Dion Jordan of Oregon if you believe this latest mock.

Re: Saints' Next DE/DT

at 15? grrr i hate the big boards i see plus most of the so called safe picks will be gone imo.

my target is Johnthan Banks but i he will not get pass tampa.

Too many of the defensive players seem to be over hyped a bit. maybe it is just a weak mid round for the draft for defense this year. Most of these players seem to be end of one or top of round 2 talent in previous years.

Same goes for some of the offense players.

Do not get me wrong i really like rounds 2 thru 4 this year. This draft seems to be a good year to plug a few holes and get some really good talent to improve team depth and maybe get two potential starts. Now that kind of talent is there

after that all the ones i am looking at are later in the draft

Still high on
Alex Okafor DE
Desmond Trufant CB
Kawann Short DT
Chase Thomas OLB

very interested in but need to see more on them.
Jesse Williams DT
*Xavier Rhodes CB
Ezekiel Ansah DE

unless some one drops into our lap i can see the pick going offense

*Jake Matthews OT - gone
Chance Warmack OG - pray! he is the best trade bait
*Keenan Allen WR - might be the next best trade bait depends on the combine

trade down
Jonathan Cooper OG
Lane Johnson OT
Barrett Jones OC
Tavon Austin WR

I hope if thats the case we get trade offers.

Heck i could easily live with trading out of one and banking the first round pick for next year and pick up second this year.

2014 break the bank for Jadeveon Clowney DE SC

yep he fall into that group "high ceiling" it is a tempting pick but he reminds me of Martez Wilson, were will he play? DE or LB? i just do not see him as a physical DE. he seems lacks that hand punch to separate from OT and bull rush a QB. but that can be coached

It would be interesting to have both of the Saints' starting DEs be named Jordan at some point in time, but I'd be hesitant to pick him based on Hagan's analysis alone.

But the mock drafts and overall rankings will change a lot until they settle down more after the combine at the end of February, so until then it'll be hard to assess who'll be available when the Saints pick.

Draft picks dont have to fall. If the FO sees something they need, we go get him we have bait to dangle.

Thats probably how they move Ivory. He'll get squat in a trade, but could be used to move up. Same goes for Shanle, PT, Herring, Bush, etc...
