Shayne Skov out of Stanford would be awesome. He plays in a 3-4 too, so he fits our future plans.

This could be a pipe dream but how about the ILB CJ Mosely kid from Bama? Saw him a lot this year and he has good speed/quickness & instincts. Always had a nose for the ball & is a sound tackler.

Any thoughts?

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I think this would be a perfect draft for the Saints:

1st - OLB Kyle Van Noy - Tremendous in pass coverage, which none of our current linebackers can say. Would instantly help our D.
2nd - FS Deone Bucannon - Malcolm Jenkins is overrated and needs replacing. This guy is a ballhawk, and he is a hard hitter too. Still has untapped potential as well.
3rd - OC Bryan Stork - De la Puente isn't bad, but he isn't good either. The center is the guy that keeps the whole OL together, so having a good one can really take the OL to the next level.
4th - CB Stanley Jean-Baptiste - The Saints take a player every year who isn't NFL ready and needs developing, but shows tons of potential. That's Jean-Baptiste. He will not be ready to contribute right away, but this could turn out to be mega steal down the road
5th - WR Jeremy Gallon - Undersized, but has that knack for creating separation and he has amazing hands. I see a lot of Lance Moore in him.
6th - Defensive tackle/Nose tackle - No player in particular here, but it would be real nice if we could take a DT/NT here and develop him.

Mosley is an absolute monster and I would be giddy if we landed him, but I would be real surprised if he is still available by the time our pick rolls around. I think Mosley is projected to go somewhere in the top 15.

I actually like most of these players you listed. In the 6th there is a NT from KY. Mister Cobbles I really liked him last season but he come down with a sickness this season and has not been the same since but if he is well and gets well he is a real player, if he checked out medically he could be a steal..Reminds me of Hampton from the Steelers in his prime, just as tough off of the point of attack and commands double teams consistantly. Might even get him as an undrafted FA. Just a thought.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Payton was on WWL last night and disagreed with Bobby about Jenkins.

Payton was praising Jenkins like he was a young Ed Reed. It wasn't just the typical "he's a heck of a player" type comments. He was gushing about MJ on and off the field.

I now have no doubt Malcolm is back next year.

And I agree with him. Jenkins gets a bad rap. He's a great player I hope we don't lose.

Perhaps I'm being too harsh on Jenkins, but I've seen him blow too many coverages to really be a fan of him. He had a nice game against Carolina the other day though, so I'll give him that.

Maybe Sean is just yanking our chain about Jenkins?
