167. DRI ARCHER - RB/KR - KENT STATE

169. HOWARD JONES - OLB - SHEPARD

202. JUSTIN BRITT - OT - MISSOURI

Larry Holders latests 7 rounder

Not bad at all, dont like Thomas personally. I just think he is too small to stay healthy long term.

Larry Holder's projections for the Saints' 2014 draft class:*

Marquise Lee
The Saints need a playmaking wide receiver. Lee made big plays in his first two years of college with Matt Barkley throwing to him Predictably, his numbers fell with a new signal-caller. Lee (6 feet, 192 pounds) could find that same rapport he created with Barkley here in New Orleans with Drew Brees.*

*Jeremiah*Attaochu
The 6-3, 252-pound defender seems like he'd be a perfect fit to bring youth and speed to the Saints' outside linebacker spot. It's hard to question his production with 31 ½ career sacks at Georgia Tech, a school record.

Desir CB
It didn't feel right for me to have the Saints with no small-school players in last week's projections. Desir isn't just a flier, either. He certainly possesses NFL size at 6-1, 198 pounds.

G Trai Turner, Turner (6-3, 310)
could be an NFL starter in his rookie year. So why would the Saints take a starting guard when they have Pro Bowl players Ben Grubbs and Jahri Evans? They could bolster their depth for 2014 then go with Turner as a starter in 2015.

Kevin Norwood
I've seen him play since high school in D'Iberville (Miss.). Tall and lanky (6-2, 198), but his 4.48-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine was better than I expected. Plus, the Saints have expressed plenty of interest in Norwood, according to a source I talked to last week.

Bryan Stork
This pick is a no-brainer pick. The Saints need competition at center. Stork (6-4, 315) visited the Saints, so this seems easy to gauge.

DeAnthony Thomas
The Saints don't make a regular habit of drafting running backs, but Thomas could be compete for a Darren Sproles-like role.

"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!

No Good Offers on Trades, So Stood Pat...

Round 1 (27) Jerimiah Attaochu, OLB, Ga Tech; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight: 252 lbs.

Rare Athlete with Rare Speed/Size Combination; Elite pass rusher with history of production and film revealing an even higher ceiling; Great attitude and person who showed trust in coaching at Senior Bowl by playing at all linebacker positions (+Versatility) and at defensive end; Nigerian immigrant with appreciation for his opportunity and fierce competitor; Can start for the Saints immediately as an upgrade at SAM; injured at Senior Bowl, didn't participate in drills at Combine but, still recovering, had an impressive Ga Tech Pro Day; First round pick for all these reasons and because he's a three down linebacker...

Round 2 (58) Donte Moncrief, WR, Ole Miss; Height: 6’ 2”; Weight 221 lbs.

Taller Wide Receiver with Big, Thick Physical Frame; Best Route Runner in the draft; Despite questions about straight line speed, ran a 4.4 at Combine; Sudden, Quick change of direction in running routes gaining a significant advantage; Good Hands with large catch radius, though he does allow some balls to his body; Still productive against elite cornerbacks in the SEC despite limited supporting cast at Ole Miss; Rare availability because of deep wide receiver class; if either Clemson's other kid, Martavis Bryant, or Vandy's Jordan Matthews is available here, we will would be happy with either of the three...

Round 3 (91) Jordan Tripp, ILB, Montana; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight 240 lbs.

Touted as an outside linebacker; would be a great complement to current Saints scheme as an Inside LineBacker as Tripp displayed top end speed, quickness in coverage and in space in both Combine Drills and at Senior Bowl; history, production of stopping running back cut-back lanes as well as sideline-sideline pursuit; another unique ability is covering lesser wide receivers on intermediary routes; could upgrade either of the Inside Linebacker spots for the Saints now which is the only glaring need of upgrade on defense; Touts his versatility in interviews because he really is a 3 down linebacker...

Round 4 (122) Walt Aikens, CB, Liberty; Height: 6’ 1”; Weight: 205 lbs.

Size is inline with transition to NFL move for more physical corners with long arms as a plus; first thing that jumps out is scouts' comparison to Saints' Keenan Lewis; Red Flag - started career at Illinois and pulled a bone-head theft stunt; transferred to Liberty to get priorities correct; despite adequate timed measurables (ran a 40 at 4.49 at ProDay) has second gear; displayed play-making creativity at Illinois as a freshman safety and continued at the Senior Bowl; The Football GamePlan CEO that posts here really had a great, genuine interview with Aikens at Senior Bowl (you really need to see it via youtube)...

Round 5 (167) Russell Bodine, OL, UNC; Height: 6’ 3”; Weight: 310 lbs.

Strong, real strong; Versatile, can play Guard and Center at high level; in fact, while I like Weston Richburg of Colorado State, can't see spending a high pick like that when there's not much drop-off to Bodine or Larsen (who's got a brother in the NFL); but Bodine being versatile is a key to depth on the Saints 53 man roster and penchant for only keeping a couple of offensive linemen for depth; Great Knee Bend; Despite "squatty frame" has very quick feet; always seems to recover against bull rushers despite initial "skating" and able to thrown back defenders; plays with a bit of a nasty streak to his game...

Round 5 (169) Howard Jones, OLB, Shepherd; Height: 6’ 2”; Weight: 235 lbs.

They finally added my Deep, Deep, Small School, Dark Horse Candidate to the FanSpeak dBase - Hoorah! A Combine Invite, Jones did not disappoint; his play has resulted in the first ever Pro Day for his school, which the Saints were one of seven (7) teams present; despite interests from larger schools in the area Virginia, Virginia Tech he had to get his grades right and so that's why he's playing at a small school; with his athleticism can be an immediate special teams contributor and with a season, season and half of development should be a starter and with his frame/size will have versatility of a 34 OLB or Ryan's 335 ILB/OLB...

Round 6 (186) Justin Britt, OT, Missouri; Height: 6’ 6”; Weight: 325 lbs.

Britt has the NFL prototypical size, measurables; though often over-looked because of Mizzou's defensive candidates; expect Brittt to develop, contribute quickly as a right tackle; went up against 2014 Draft Prospects Kony Ealy and Michael Sam, but he also faced 2013 first round pick Sheldon Richardson - so he's faced talented linemen during all those weeks of practice as well as the SEC's finest; only issue with his game is second level blocking, which he could develop behind Zach Strief (and possibly be better)...

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

These things are fun.

27
CB DARQUEZE DENNARD
MICHIGAN STATE
58
ILB CHRISTIAN JONES
FLORIDA STATE
91
WR MARTAVIS BRYANT
CLEMSON
126
CB PIERRE DESIR
LINDENWOOD
167
OLB ADRIAN HUBBARD
ALABAMA
169
C RUSSELL BODINE
NORTH CAROLINA
202
WR L’DAMIAN WASHINGTON
MISSOURI

Got one of the top CB's in the draft in Dennard. Has the size and speed we need.

Next, I picked up the tall, athletic, fast and rangy ILB we've been lacking to really make this 3-3-5 defense take off. Oh, and improve our tackling problems on defense too.

I think I got great value on a speed receiver here and another offensive weapon to keep our O at the top of the league.

Couldn't believe Pierre was still here and it never hurts to have plenty of guys at CB with all the injuries and would allow us to get rid of PRob. or White. Lets face it guys, they may be ok or even good, but we need better and we need it now.

Next, I hedged our bets with the OLB from Bama in case the guy we got from Dallas doesn't come all the way back. Insurance is a good thing.

I'm all for Tim Lelito, but lets face it. Depth, Depth, Depth. We need it.

Lastly, you guessed it, I took an insurance policy at WR too. Can't have enough good players.

Ok, so what do you think??

Like it, but no way Dennard is available at 27.

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

Glaring needs vs tweaks
A bunch of folks here keep looking at the defense with a bunch of draft picks. Right now, I'd say our defense -especially with the FA signings- is far better than our offense. We have some glaring needs out there we really should consider. Here's how I rank it:
1. We need an NFL ready center. We need the best center available in the draft. Period.
2. We need a foot. Too many of our games are being left up to the foot of one guy. We need the best out there. That should put 2-3 more W's in our column alone.
3. We need some hands. Our guys are getting old and we need someone who can get open and have the ball actually stick in their hands. Fortunately the draft is deep in these guys this year.
4. Then after that we can look at tweaking the D which will rate out better than the O this year if we don't get some fixes in.

Re: Mock Draft Simulator

I still think we need a OLB/DE this year. You cant just leave it to Jordan and Junior. Galettes sacks come in fits and starts so we need to make sure we still get pressure.

Norwood will be drafted in the fourth round, maybe in the fifth - don't count on picking him up as a free agent; oh, he will be the Kenny Stills of the 2014 draft...

Mocks are fun. Mocks are informative. Mocks are totally useless when the real thing arrives...
