Why the Saints Should pick Danny Shelton at 13

What is large, round, and would look amazing in Black and Gold? Danny Shelton. This human tank is probably the best defensive lineman in this draft outside of Williams and could be the ideal pickup for Rob Ryan and his 3-4 packages. Shelton is a monster of a man with enormous power that masks surprising athleticism. He is not only able to get great push and stop the run, but is also a very effective pass rusher for a Tackle. One of the biggest needs for this defense is a guy(s) who can create pressure up the middles so that quarterbacks are unable to step up as easily as they did last year. This gives the pass rushers the extra second they need to get the QB down and can also disrupt plays all on its own.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Yes we should get him. Dont think he is on the board though myself. Somebody interesting is going to fall though.

even if we draft Danny Shelton the saints need better play out of the NT unit as a whole. he can only do so much without a solid rotation.

He's the player we need but not the one we'll pick unless all the shiny picks are taken.

Re: Why the Saints Should pick Danny Shelton at 13

I have never agreed with a thread more than I do this one. I believe all great 3-4 defenses have that one massive run stuffing guy who demands constant double teams and is impossible to move. Now that I've read this, I am convinced the Saints should draft the best interior lineman possible. OL or DL. We either need a great run blocker or a great run stuffer. WHODAT!

Carl Davis of Iowa reminds me of a Jumpy Geathers/Jim Wilks/Frank Warren type of linemen...

Need pressure up the middles so the quarterback's got no squiggles.
