Dontae Johnson compares to Keenan Lewis, so that's a good candidate for the Black and Gold...

I have watched a couple of games of NC state he has always made an impression. I came away thinking he would make a nice addition to the saints 3 safety sets. FS maybe the best way to see the kid with the ability to play in the nickle and dime packages. interesting prospect with IMO a solid upside.

now the other two i saw a bit of

Brandon Dixon NW Missouri St CB/FS 5111 202 4.35?
tough and aggressive

Jonathan Dowling Western Kentucky 6022 FS/SS 198 4.42
Western Kentucky's Jonathan Dowling says he will enter draft - NFL.com




solid division II players in their own right. it will be interesting to see these two measure out. these two are on my watch list for 6/7 round steals in the draft

quality players at a cheap price is always a good thing

we need the next Colston type of pick in a bad way.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

Are there any TE that could take Jimmys spot if a deal cant be reached or he gets the non franchise tag and is picked up.

Watson was solid and Hill is behind him. Do we need another TE?

I am leaning to the opinion that we have put way too much emphasis on the TE position, and that is the main reason for our predictability.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

My only concern with Watson is the concussion issue. I seem to remember him having a few over the years (I could well be wrong). I agree we could make do but I have not paid much attet to TE in college so just wondering if any are comung out that could be worth watching.

No. That's why he will get paid.

Kind of makes you want a new CB.
