Because Jones has a red flag over him due to his spinal stenosis. He also underperformed at his pro day. I like Mingo better. The only way I see us taking Jones, is if we trade down toward the end of the first round and he is still there.

There is a reason most of ESPN's mocks have Mingo going at 9 or better. He fills a serious need for us. I'm praying he drops to us at 15. The Saints could surely use some more speed on D, and Mingo definetely provides that. But I admit I could see us taking an LSU player with every pick. I love FB Copeland, Mathieu, and even Logan to mention a few possibiles.

Re: Saints take Mingo in the latest Mock Draft, I like this pick

I really like Mingo. I watched him play from West Monroe and through college. I really think he has a HUGE upside. We have depth at LB to pull him in and sit him if we have too. Start him slowly into the mix and let him learn the OLB position. Anyone remember Demarcus Ware? He was considered a "project". The guy is a beast. If the right OT or trade down is not happening I would jump all over him.

I'm not sure you can justify bringing in someone who still needs seasoning, or is making a move to a position that he might not be ready for.
#15 needs to be an impact player.

The only way I want to trade down is if we get the honey badger in the second round. If he stayed in school and didnt have issues homeboy would be a top three pick. I know we need a lot but damn I want us to get that dude.

A top 3 pick? No way he's even a 1st rounder.

Mathieu has a load of talent but even if he stayed out of troublr he would of been a mid rd 1 at best. He is lacking the size of a top 10 pick

He's weak, look at his reps. He also got in trouble not once, but twice. Maybe in the 3rd but that's a stretch. Why use a pick on someone with serious mental issues these days. I know I wouldn't. He hasn't played ball in a while either. He a rust bucket with problems.

I said if he didnt have issues. You have to remember he was only a sophmore and was in the hunt for the heisman. When he got in trouble that changed everything. I think if he stays out of trouble and thats a big if then someone is getting a steal. I know he is not going in the first but the second round is very possible.

Funny reading some of these posts... To small, to Slow, not talented enough. If that is the guy then that is the guy you make the pic.

There are plenty of players who were to small end up in the hall of fame.
