Re: Saints will pick 13th

Last time we picked 13th we got Jammal Brown - IMO one of the best first-round picks in recent Saints history considering he was an immediate impact player.

I kind of like it. They can sit there and get a top-10 caliber player because you know somebody is going to fall. Aaron Donald last year, Sheldon Richardson the year before, both studs.

We've been saying we need a first round OLB for a few years, seems Payton is scared to draft one in the first, but rather wait to take projects in the mid to late rounds(Powell, Fortt, Rufus Johnson, Martez Wilson, Romeus, Bussey)

Did we win? Or did we find a way to screw ourselves yet again this season. TB gets 1st pick, Atl picks 4 spots before us.

Of course. What else should we expect... Pull victory from the jaws of defeat at a time when we least of all needed it. Great season, Saints. You managed to do everything wrong.

Re: Saints will pick 13th

If we use a high draft pick (1-3) on a wr, I'm gonna lose my s**t!

Re: Saints will pick 13th

actually like this range in the draft. over hyped combine beauty queens are usually off the board and the runner ups are a bit of a reach from up here.

Brandon Scherff ? Cedric Ogbuehi? La'el Collins? T.J. Clemmings?

Do have some things in common.
none are LT.
Might be RT
Might be better off inside at OG.

kinda of a funky spot for OT.

Ronnie Stanley ND Jr if he declares looks to be the best true OT that might be on the board. he is young and until the beauty show is over how big of a reach he will be is yet to be determined.

So go with Brandon Scherff or La'el Collins with the idea that OG is were they might end up and one of our high priced OG becomes a Cap causality this year or next.


rounds 2
I would love the versatile Cameron Erving OC/OG/ROT he would settle in as a starter some where. but i think we just played him off our board.

Ty Sambrailo ROT/OG is the pick. yet another player that can slide inside to OG. he needs some grooming and exposure to DE and OLB at the NFL level coming from Colorado St. but iMO he can handle it. like Brandon Scherff and La'el Collins girth and aggression are proper catch phases for them all.

One of the two should be able to man the RT while the other allows us cap room by sliding inside within a two year window. might get lucky and it right of camp. worse case we might have both OG replacement in 2016 and freeing up a ton of cap space to sign a FA ROT. either way i think these two picks are high rewards with low risk moves that can solve a lot issues that the saints will be facing in the next two years. plus they both will be improvement to depth and help keep Drew alive. ideal world we drafted the starting right side of the oL for years to come and have Zach as our back up swing man in the wings

catch in round 2 what player best fits SP desire for toys in the draft?

Ameer Abdullah Neb. every time i have watch him I just see SP lighting up like a three year old at christmas time. second coming of Darrin Sproles? i just have that gut feeling like i did with Cook this is the SP toy for 2015. If we do get Ameer it would allow Cook to be more of a WR than a gimmick. which would be huge ofr the saints. have to admit Cook one side and Ameer in motion to the opposite side of the field would cause issues for defenses. flash back to days gone by

Maybe because we don't pick effectively.

I just hope we don't trade up. For teams hoping to move down, we are in position where other teams will try to engage us in talks.

The last thing we need is a WR...

We should draft nothing but O-line/D-line or LBs with the first 3 picks. Or we could take another WR toy for Payton and blow another draft.

I also completely disagree with everyone's hype about Shaq. His defensive plays are average at best and is only hyped because of his RB ability, but watch the guy run, he never gets touched because the holes are huge.

Shaq=overrated
