2015 draft??

This season just keeps going from bad to worse. Now Bush and Cooks on the IR, I'm just hoping to stay "competitive" and healthy for the remainder of the season. With that said, here's looking forward to the draft

Fanspeak's On the Clock NFL Mock Draft Simulator

My 7 round draft results

Round 1: Vic Beasley - OLB - Clemson
- stud at a position of need, that's all

Round 2: Denzel Perrymen - ILB - Miami
- arguably the top ILB in this draft. Kid is good, plus he has a pedigree from Miami including Ray Lewis. Jon VIima, DJ Williams, Dan Morgan, Jon Beason, etc. AND ILB is another position of need

Round 3: Rashad Greene - WR - Florida State
- another solid WR, runs precise routes, has good hands. Maybe not be 6'4 like people want these days, but he can straight ball. Plus we've seen the decline of Colston and the end of Meachem. A trio of Cooks, Stills and Greene would be nice to have, plus a 6'6 Coleman if the light bulb turns on and he figures out how to catch the ball

Round 4: Kevin Johnson - CB - Wake Forrest
- smaller school for D1 big boys. Last two seasons has had 25 PBUs and 6 INTs. Read some nice things and figured in the 4th, he'd be a good pick and it's an area of need for us

Round 5: Tyrus Thompson - OT - Oklahoma
- we NEED depth at OT, as we've seen behind Strief is a revolving door named Bryce Harris

Round 6: Miles Dieffenhach - OG - Penn State
- has an ACL tear and is out for the season, but prior to that was considered a possible 1st day, early 2nd day pick.

Round 7: David Cobb - RB - Minnesota
- currently the #8 ranked RB in college football in terms of rushing yards from scrimmage with 1350 and a 5.3 YPC average. Also has 11 TDs and there's still a couple games to play.

Re: 2015 draft??

The Saints should draft linebackers and defensive backs in every round. Oh I forgot, we need to replenish the o-line...Would be nice to have some of those bounty draft picks back that were stolen by gOdhELL!

Re: 2015 draft??

I am sure this will be controversial, but if we are high enough in the draft I want Amari Cooper. Colston is probably gone after this season. It's the perfect opportunity to change the dynamic of this offense. I also wouldn't mind something as drastic as letting go of Evans and drafting a guard high. Again, this offense is as stale and predictable as it gets these days. We need to get some younger bodies on offense, pronto.

I'm not saying ignore the defense, but almost the exact same bunch of players was one of the top defenses in the league in 2013. We have a lot of talent there, it would be dumb to just start hacking away at it. Maybe add a pass rusher, an ILB with some speed and a depth corner. But the main issue is the chemistry and coaching on this side of the ball, IMO. Maybe you have to make the tough move and let Rob Ryan move on.

Re: 2015 draft??

I wouldn't mind seeing all defense pick this year with maybe one o-lineman for depth and next year go big for offensive picks. I say next year(2016 draft) for the offense as both Evans and Grubbs contracts will be at a low point of dead money by then. Let Lelito cement the C job next year with a pair of veteran G next too him and then replace at least one of them with young blood so the line is not completely up in the air with new players.

Re: 2015 draft??

Wouldn't mind spending our first two picks on two of

Randy Gregory (OLB)
In 2014, he has 37 tackles with six tackles for a loss, 5.5 sacks, one forced fumble, three passes broken up and one interception despite basically missing two games.

Shane Ray(OLD/DE)
Ray has 12 sacks, 45 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss and two forced fumbles.

Vic Beasley OLB
In 2014, Beasley has eight sacks, 21 tackles, 12.5 tackles for a loss, one pass batted and one forced fumble

Denzel Perryman(ILB) 72 tackles, two forced fumbles, five tackles for a loss, four passes broken up, one interception and a sack.
Eric Kendricks(OLB/ILB)
In 2014, Kendricks has 114 tackles with six tackles for a loss, one forced fumble, one sack, two passes broken up, two interceptions and one sack

Benardrick McKinney(OLB/IB) 6'5 get in the passing lanes
n 2014, McKinney has 55 tackles, 6.5 tackles for a loss, three sacks, three passes broken up and a forced fumble

A.J Johnson(Round 3)
n 2014 with 96 tackles, 8.5 tackles for a loss, an interception, two passes batted, one sack and two forced fumbles (one on kick coverage).
They would offer up some much needed speed and tackling in the LBs. Might put a stop to those long runs we too much off

"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!

Re: 2015 draft??

Love that draft except for Perrymen, I've watched him a lot and he never stands out to me.

Vic Beasley in the first I'll be jumping for joy. I also really like Shane Ray and Leonard Floyd.

Re: 2015 draft??

I agree about getting a pair of lb.'s in the draft but we need a stud 3-4 NT to get pressure to make things work, we don't have 1. Pick#1 needs to be a NT.

I wouldn't spend a One on a NT, a top LB, yes...

One of these two are what I'd hope for in the coming draft as I've got 'em on my board at a mid-first round pick for us as the season keeps drifting like it is; we should be in a position to get one...

Re: 2015 draft??

John Jenkins looked good last year,wether it injuries or he needs more snaps to get himself sorted im not sure. I can't see Bunkley getting cut as though it saves $3ml of cap space we would be paying him the same to play elsewhere.
I'd take a late flyer or pick up a few UDFA as see if we can find somebody but its a position i can see being left a year


Anyone you think stands out at NT
Shelton been getting sacks and standing up to the run so far

Melvin Lewis*, NT, Kentucky
Height: 6-4. Weight: 320.
Projected 40 Time: 5.44.
Projected Round (2015): 5-7.
11/15/14: Lewis has had some impressive play at times in the 2014 season. While Bud Dupree and Za'Darius Smith get more attention, Lewis has caused disruption at the point of attack. He had an impressive game against Florida, and the Gators really struggled to block him. In 2014, Lewis has 32 tackles with two tackles for a loss and .5 sacks.

Lewis took a redshirt with Kentucky last year after spending 2012 as a junior college standout at Fullerton College (California), a JUCO program known for producing great talent. Lewis has a serious combination of size, strength and quickness. He needs to develop his overall game and get more consistent.


I wanted NT Daniel McCullers and Louis Nix III and was shouting for Tiny Richardson late last year though so who am i to judge
