Latest SI Mock Draft

Bud Dupre at 13 and Maxx Williams at 31.

13

BUD DUPREE, OLB/DE
Senior, Kentucky
Now owning a second pick in the first round, at No. 31, thanks to the stunning Jimmy Graham trade with Seattle, the Saints have a little more latitude to be on the move come draft night. If they stay at No. 13, Dupree offers some of the pass rush juice they sorely lacked last season, and his blend of size, speed and athleticism should present opportunities for defensive coordinator Rob Ryan to move him around and find his best role. This might be a tad high for Dupree in the eyes of some teams, but pass rushers never linger long on the board.


31

MAXX WILLIAMS, TE
RS Sophomore, Minnesota
The Saints could easily keep their first-round focus on defense, after taking Kentucky pass rusher Bud Dupree at No. 13. But with the pick they received from Seattle in trade for Jimmy Graham, finding another starting tight end seems logical. Williams isn’t the one-on-one mismatch that Graham was—who is?—but he’d make a nice target for Drew Brees and can even add an element of blocking ability that Graham never exhibited.

Not so sure this makes sense...

Im a huge Kentucky fan but our defense sucked. We run a 4-3 and I like Dupree but I honestly think the only reason he is being considered in the first round is on his combine numbers alone.

Honest assessment... I appreciate that. For me personally he does have that workout warrior hype that scares me a little bit so I agree with you about the measurables.

People seem to think having an elite TE is a must or something.

Re: Latest SI Mock Draft

Taking Dupree at 13?? From the two replay games I saw of him, he appears slow & didn't appear to be very athletic coming off the edge. Nothing stands out for me. If he is there in the second, yeah, maybe but not at 13.

Re: Latest SI Mock Draft

Don't mind the first one but I think we pick the best ILB on the board at 31 and then the TE in the second or with the extra third

Re: Latest SI Mock Draft

I can't remember a draft in the last 10 years where we had so many viable options.

There seems to be an infinite number of combinations that I'd be completely satisfied with on draft day.

Anyone else feel the same way?

Agreed. There are certain prospects I hope to get, but anything outside of taking another Safety is a good idea unless we trade Vacarro or something.

Phillip Dorsett. I like Phillip Dorsett.
