The 2014 season isn't even over yet, but the mock drafts are already rolling out. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper released his first mock draft of the year on Thursday, projecting Clemson defensive end Vic Beasley to the Saints at No. 13 overall.

While Kiper's mock draft requires ESPN Insider access to view, he noted he saw Beasley as a potential top-15 pick in the 2014 draft, had Beasley chosen to declare for the draft early.

The rest of Kiper's first round mock draft is here.

The 6-foot-2, 235 pound Beasley was named the ACC's Defensive Player of the Year and posted double digit sacks in 2013 and 2014.

Of course, without the impact of the NFL Combine and free agency, these early mocks are as much a guessing game as anything. In Kiper's first mock last year, he projected Tennessee left tackle Antonio Richardson to the Saints with the 27th pick of the first round.

The Saints traded up to select wideout Brandin Cooks, while knee injuries kept Richardson from being drafted.

The Saints could go many ways in the first round. While they may address many of their needs in free agency, they will likely be looking at cornerback and pass rusher as two of their top needs.

We need a pass rusher but he needs to be a NT. We need pressure up the middle.

I can confirm that 10 months or so after the draft i still think Rooks,Fortt and Powell drafted when Richardson wwas on the board was madness

I can only hope! But Rugby Saint is right too... An edge rusher is nothing if the big guys in the middle can't collapse the pocket.

Yep, we have edge rushers, we don't have a push up the middle, although several of our DT's were injured.

Please no. Weak against the run. We were run all over this year (again) and especially our LBs.

It doesn't make sense we would draft him.

If we draft a lb. he needs to be an ILB.
