2nd Round... Who do we draft now?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Why spend a 2 ir 3rd on a backup. Anyone brought in will be bench riding for at least two years. The point is 'Is Mettenberger good enough to replace brees in that timeframe". Im not talking a third next ...

Im not talking a third next year but a 4/5 while spending this years picks at 3 on more needed players in a deep draft from R2-5

#78 La'ell Collins OT LSU

02/24/2015 - 2015 NFL Combine, 25 Takeaways: Five Players Who Hurt Themselves: Devin Funchess, WR/TE, Michigan: After switching from tight end to receiver this past season, scouts viewed Funchess as a potential Kelvin Benjamin clone. After getting clocked at 4.70 seconds in the 40-yard dash, however, scouts now wonder if the 6-5, 232 pounder has the burst to get past cornerbacks or the strength and aggression to move back inside. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

I like our options...

At some point I think we do take a flier on Collins. It could pay off bigtime and he could end up playing with a chip on his shoulder with something to prove. I just don't know if we have to pick him up in the second. I think he will drop like a rock and we snag him in third of 4th.

Re: 2nd Round... Who do we draft now?

I'd be happy with any from this pool in the second and third rounds:

DE Carl Davis, Iowa, 6' 5", 320 lbs.

DE Henry Anderson, Stanford, 6' 6", 294 lbs.

WR Dorial Green-Beckham, 6' 5", 237 lbs.

WR Jaelen Strong, 6' 2", 217 lbs.

WR Chris Conley, 6' 2", 217 lbs.

LB Eli Harold, Virginia, 6' 3", 247 lbs.

LB Lorenzo Mauldin, Louisville, 6' 4", 259 lbs.

LB Davis Tull, 6' 2", 246 lbs.

LB Taiwan Jones, 6' 3", 245 lbs.

CB P.J. Williams, 6' 0", 195 lbs.

CB Eric Rowe, 6' 1", 204 lbs.

OL Ali Marpet, Hobart, 6' 3⅞", 307 lbs.

OT Rob Havenstein, Wisconsin, 6' 7", 321 lbs.

Then there is...

QB Garrett Grayson, 6' 2" 213 lbs.

I still think Ryan Griffin has untapped potential...
