What position would you like to see the Saints go for in the draft?
 
Never too early to start talking about the draft, imo.

I'd like to see us pick up a cornerback in the first round. Jabari Greer's injury really made me realize how poor the depth is at CB. And who knows how Greer will come back from his ACL tear. I think we should assume for the worst and take a CB, because as it stands now, we have nobody behind Keenan Lewis and Corey White. I guess Carr is decent, but he's certainly not ideal and could be upgraded.

CB for sure, as well as OC, OT, LB (2), WR

O-Line/OLB/CB BPA at one of those spots

I'm guessing that Rob Ryan will get another piece for his defense, like OLB in the first

The best player available with the 32nd pick! Who knows how free agency will play out leading up to the draft but I'm watching this Arkansas-Miss. State game right now and this center Travis Swanson for Arkansas is pretty intriguing. It's not a sexy pick but he's currently the #1 center in the upcoming draft and if we don't bring back DLP then he should be an option.

Pretty much agree with you.

I'd like to see our picks turn out like this:

1 - CB
2 - OLB
3 - OG/OC
4 - OT
5 - OLB
6 - WR

Every mock draft I read has us drafting an OLB in the first round and I don't get it. Victor Butler will be back next season and combined with Junior and Parys Haralson it just doesn't seem like a position that needs immediate upgrading.

I'd like to see us targeting one in the second round, but I agree that we have more pressing needs than OLB.

I'd like to see us take Adrian Hubbard, OLB out of Alabama in the second round. The guy is a monster. 6'5, 252 and can run like a deer. He's not a liability in the pass or run game. Rob Ryan would work wonders with him.

You and I know both know we're gonna take the BPA anyway.

But I could see us taking an OLB. Butler is unproven as a starter and there's a bit of the unknown with his knee injury. Junior is above average but not what I'd call pro-bowl quality.

Parys is a SLB and at this stage is more of a two-down OLB.

We could use a young Jack LB for sure. I'd prefer that the BPA when we pick is an OT or CB, but I could live with any positions in the 1st other than QB, RB, FB, TE, K or P.

Hubbard in the 2nd sounds fine with me.

They say the problem with Bama players is that Saban has already gotten the most out of them. There likely won't be a huge "development" jump for his players when they reach the next level. They're kinda like what you see is what you get. We've seen that with his DB's and LB's already.

Obviously they won't suck, but they aren't going to improve dramatically at the next level. I tend to think Bama players are over-rated by about a half-round or more going into the draft.

You know, I was thinking that we don't need an OLB because we hardly ever play in the base 3-4 defense... But then I started thinking that the reason for that might be because we don't have anyone other than Haralson to play SAM and he's getting older.
