... reminds me of the late great Sean Taylor with more versatility.

I would like anyone of the top 4 on this list, and we should be in position to get one of them. After the pass rusher is addressed we need to get a few young and hungry DTs along with early pick(s) at OG.

CB IMO is the deepest i have seen in a long time I believe a starter can be had all the way to to the third. I am talking man cover types. Size speed and attitude

some solid prospects through the 5th. some solid gambles from there on.

Whole bunch the can do that CB to S dance without missing a beat.

this has a good chance of being the year of the CB.

might just be the best football player in the draft. starting SS? that would make a ton of sense. side line to side line speed and keep him in the action. He has played it before and I bet he would lead this team in tackles season 1. at 61, 237 4.56 he can either be an under sized OLB or a massive safety with solid speed. take your pick. all i know is i feel comfortable in saying he is a better SS and cover guy than kenny coming out of college.

fluid movement dropping back into coverage.
solid one-on-one match ups with tight ends

the kenny test this year was a flop. he is not a true SS so do not be surprised by a safety pick. we do not have a starter at that position and we all know we love safeties. solid back ups but a starter?

want to get the most out of the Byrd signing get him some help back there. Then add a CB or two in rounds 2 or 3 or 4. talent is there. all better prospects than SJB. I am betting he would have fallen into the 4/5 or 5/6 range this year.

with him on the field it would be like having 4 LB at all times vs this freaking 3 or 4 so so safety look we have now.

He is the freak or premier athlete in the draft without all the hyped upside or what if crap surrounding him. he is what he is. a freaking football player that you can get your money out of in more ways than 90% of the players on the saints today. RB LB SS special teams. he can open up a few rosters spots with his pick alone.

Shaq as a SS/LB type sealing up the middle of the field.

i like the the mix.

been waiting for his name to pop up.

Re: 2015 draft??

Wouldn't be the first time the Saints decision makers screwed the pooch in the draft, but I've come to expect disappointment from this regime in the draft; as good as they are gameday, the suck it on draft day...

Re: 2015 draft??

I was all about Vic Beasley but the more I read about Shaq Thompson the more I like him. I see people saying his best fit is at weakside OLB in a 4-3... So would we think about replacing Hawthorne with Thompson at the ILB position? I'm sure he could line up as an edge rusher too in a base 3-4. I don't know, but I do like the versatility.
