Grade the OVERALL 2015 Saints draft?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I dont get how anyone can look at a line of Armstead - LG -Unger - Evans- Strief/Peat And make it sound like the Bears or Jags...

Re: Grade the OVERALL 2015 Saints draft?

We still need two guards if not now then when will you stabilize the guard position?

LG-- Gone
RG-- bad back and wrist.(on the wrong side of 30)

That leaves us with last years back up center and Kelemente to protect Drew. I'm not excited.

New Orleans Saints

Based on my evaluations, I think the Saints had a very good draft. With just about every pick, they chose a prospect I was high on.

The first pick was offensive tackle Andrus Peat, who I thought was the best left tackle prospect in the draft right now. With proper development Florida's D.J. Humphries could be the best left tackle in this class, but today the best prospect is Peat.

I really like their second first-round pick, Clemson linebacker Stephone Anthony. I think he could be a terrific NFL player. He's very athletic. In college he played fast and was decisive in his movements. He trusted what he saw and turned it loose. He showed the ability to blitz and cover as well. He could be a really good linebacker.

In the second round they got Washington pass rusher Hau'oli Kikaha, who I really like. The third-round pick of quarterback Garrett Grayson (my No. 3 quarterback in the class) made sense. From the minute I started watching Grayson I thought he was a Sean Payton player. That's a great fit for him.

I liked Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams, a good pick as a press-cover corner who struggles with inconsistency, but that's why he was a third-rounder. I also really liked outside lineabacker Davis Tull of Tennessee-Chattanooga on film. I also liked Georgia cornerback Damian Swann, their other fifth-round pick.

I don't know what the Saints' draft board looked like or if their draft went according to plan. All I know is they ended up with a lot of players who I really liked in my pre-draft film study.

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

All little common sense goes a long way.

Greg Cosell was high on a lot of our draft picks. He truly studies film.
Good to read his positive analysis on our 9 selections.

Some of the UDFA signings so far have been fantastic! Richardson in particular. But also Eulls. Barnes. Harris. Those are some great names.

Wish we could've landed Alani Fua, Taiwan Jones, and Wes Saxton.

But I can't get over the fact Collins is still out there.....
I don't know what's going on with your avatar but at least I can look at it without retching. The one you used to have was straight out of the pit of hades.

I hope you're right about the UDFA's. The Saints could use some quality players to get back on top.

Re: Grade the OVERALL 2015 Saints draft?

Why is there no love, confidence in Lelito?!?

He has played extremely well when given the opportunity.

The only reason why Goodwin was staring at Center last season was because of salary, seniority and certain particular politics where Grubbs and Evans casually lobbied for Goodwin...

Those of you who like PFF could certainly find statistical evidence that Lelito has done well at Center and at his more natural position of Guard...

And if he were that bad, wouldn't we have made a play for a guard in the fourth round rather than a second cornerback later?!?

I loved that avatar. It was a cross between violent nausea and somehow hauntingly attractive.

Can't remember how I lost it. Was it Katrina? Can't remember. Think so. The water got into the backups in the attic. Such a shame.
