Draft Lane Johnson?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; No OT will be there at 15 when it comes to Joeckel, Fisher or Johnson. I am 100% sure of that. Warmack likely won't be there either and maybe not Cooper as OG's. Very nice o-line draft....

Thats 5 picks, so that leaves at least one of the top 10 defensive players for us, and if those two WR's gets picked then it leaves at least one of the top 8 defensive players for us at 15.

Throw in Milliner and Geno and that leaves us 1 of the top 6.

I can definitely live with any one of the top 6 defenders, which is probably one of the following players...

DT Flloyd
DE Werner
DT Latulelei
OLB Jordan
DE Ansah
OLB Mingo
CB Rhodes
OLB Jones

Re: Draft Lane Johnson?

I'm ready for the draft to be over with and the season to start. I hate speculating.

We need to replace Zach Strief.

We need at least one more pass rusher.

We need another WR. Losing Robert Meachem hurt more then I ever expected.

We need a LT.

We need a ballhawking defensive back.

If we fill at least 2 of these holes we'll be fine. No team can be perfect.

I don't think losing Robert Meachem made one single first down's difference in the 2012 squad.

I actually thought it would, but I don't think it did at all.

He was useless in San Diego.

Re: Draft Lane Johnson?

when the season ended he was in the 15 to 20 range for most big boards. his song and dance was expected to be good in the combine so no real surprise the so called expects love him more now.

he still has holes in his game and the hype has him high.

so 15 is realistic.

I really think it did. He was our best deep threat. I knew he'd suck in San Diego. He's the product of our system. I really liked him though. He was my favorite.

Saints select any of those players and someone would need to pull me off my living room ceiling with a rake

All to much hype and upside for my taste. not sold 100% on any of them for this team. but a pick will need to be made none the less
