Hey Halloween, I agree with you completely however the OP asked which player you would rather take. I too think the Perryman from UM (Univ of Miami) will become a better pro and is actually better than McKinney in pass coverage at this stage of their respected careers. In some scouting reports, Perryman is rated top LB in the country.

I'm definitely not sleeping on Denzel Perryman from the U.

Re: Dante Fowler or Bernardrick McKinney

What we'd like about McKinney is that the man was a 3-star QB out of high school with 1 offer (My Cow College).

In other words, he was passed over coming out of high school but ended up being a 2nd Team All-SEC Linebacker and a projected 2nd Round NFL Draft Pick...you would think Coach Payton likes players that worked hard in college to get where he's at and with chips on their shoulders. If he stayed for his senior year, he'd be an All-American 2015...Saints need to catch him early. If y'all can't tell, I'm a bit biased.

He worked his tail off to learn how to play ILB & sculpt that body but still maintain the speed & power. Great work ethic...sign him up. Extra bonus if we can get him in the 2nd.

While we're at it at LB'er, let's grab Bama ILB'er Trey DePriest in the later rounds...smart & fundamentally sound player though not the fastest, but I like him. If Bama's Ragland declares for the draft, we gotta get him in the middle rounds...no question. Load'em up on that Front 7 and get after Scam Newton & their RB's if we're serious about getting this division back.

I ain't joking, because our middle linebackers were small, slow & were exposed all year. They were the joke of this 2014 defense...all except Lofton, that is.

McKinney could very easily make a lot of people look foolish passing on him i agree,

I watched Ragland as careful as I could , I feel he needs to stay in school for another year, he was exposed a little to much for my liking during the Ohio State game not saying he's bad but another year at Bama would do him well just a little to raw.

Re: Dante Fowler or Bernardrick McKinney

Oh, forgot...McKinney was a Freshman All-American LB'er. Been at it for 3 years. Not a "Project Pick"...Battle-Tested.

Re: Dante Fowler or Bernardrick McKinney

We will have to see who is left at the 13th pick.

Can we develop anyone defensively to their full potential? I mean lofton & hawthorne are perfect examples of good young defensive players who havent quite reached what they probably could've. Loftons good but he was better in atlanta because he could actually cover then, same with hawthorne...now it looks kenny vaccaro isn't going to live up to his potential as well. It just seems like a common theme for our team...something needs to be changed.

Re: Dante Fowler or Bernardrick McKinney

Fowler could be the extra pass rusher we need. We just need a stud OLB ILB or DT in this draft. 2/3 and we're golden. We better have a hell of a draft.

Exactly ... so did Brian Orakpo, Jamaal Charles, Alex Okafor, Derrick Johnson etc. Pretty weak argument if you ask me.
