Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

Mel Kiper Mock Draft 2013: Analyzing ESPN Guru's Recent Projections | Bleacher Report


15. New Orleans Saints—OLB Jarvis Jones, Georgia

If you are going to switch from a 4-3 defense to a 3-4 base look, you have to start stockpiling draft picks.

The Saints are in a bad spot because of the Bounty Gate scandal taking away their second-round pick, meaning No. 15 will be their only pick until the third round unless they decide to pull off a trade to move back into the second.

Adding the SEC sack leader and conference Defensive Player of the Year is a good start, especially with a number of players adjusting their normal roles to fit in the new 3-4 scheme. Jones is one of the biggest question marks in terms of first-round placement, but a quality fit on a defense that is both trying to bounce back from a poor 2012 and is changing its defensive strategy, as well.

Re: Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

Bull, we need a solid pick to get right after it. Not a crap shoot on a player that might not belong in the first round.

Re: Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

YEA WE WILL STAY AT 15 AND GET A BLUE CHIPPER!
We have a plethora of RBs and LBs not to mention Roman Harper is gone already in my mind for a 5th rd pick.
So no need to trade back unless the guy we want to draft "Mingo, StarL, Trufant, Jordan, Ansha, or Rhodes or Vacaro" if all these guys are gone yea we might trade back unless we pull a wildcard and pick Tavon Austin ourselves lol! SO ME I WOULD USE A FEW OF OUR PLAYERS THAT EITHER DON'T FIT OR WE JUST HAVE A GLUT OF TO GET MORE PICKS! Yeup I'd trade Harper for a 5th, Ivory or Thomas for a 2nd and if it's Ingram I need a late 1st Like maybe Green Bŕy's pick! There are alot of things in the works for accumulating draft picks!

Re: Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

Its easy to see the Saints moving down into the 20s and getting a late 2nd round pick.

But its also not out of the question for the Saints to stay at 15.

You must be smoking some good sh..
If you think anyone will part with a first for Ingram and 2nd for Thomas/Sproles.

Also talent wise Jones is superior to Ansah,Mingo and Vacaro. Jones is a beast,he is quite possibly the best pass rusher in the draft. The question is how bad is his spinal stenosis.If he is cleared and there at 15 he could be a steal. There was a reason he was a top 5 pick throughout the college season.He has dropped back on both medical issues and other falling in love with the combine kings times in no pads.
Give me a player that has proven himself on the field over one from the weight room or track.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

I think Ansah and Mingo will be better NFL players then Jones. Jones IMO is the college football Tim Tebow on the defensive side of the ball. Great college player whose style wont mesh in the NFL. Slow and not that strong is not a good mix for an OLB I a 3-4.

I love Ansah and would take him over Mingo if both are there. The ceiling is much higher for Ansah and Mingo. Jarvis isn't gonna get better IMO, now after saying all that I really hope we trade back and pick up a 2nd rounder. No way in the world will we get 2nd for any of the Saints RB's. Might be able to net a 3rd for Ingram, but I think I'd hold on to him for another year.

Re: Kiper's Latest Mock Draft

Ansah just looks more of a 4-3 end from what i have seen from him.
