BAYHAM: A Post-Draft Saints Review With Mike Detillier



The New Orleans Saints made some interesting moves in the 2015 NFL Draft, using their maiden pick of the first round on an offensive lineman and doubled, make that tripled, down on defense. College football expert, author of one of the most comprehensive guides to the NFL draft, and WWL 870 AM radio contributor Mike Detillier gives his take on how the Black and Gold front office fared in restocking the team’s talent pool and whether some of the moves indicate other changes down the road with current personnel.

1. Were you surprised by the Saints’ first pick of the NFL draft and what role do you see Andrus Peat playing in the 2015 season?
Once the top defensive players were off the board, then it didn’t surprise me they go for an offensive lineman. In our last session I told you that this off-season offensively was about protecting your most prized player in Drew Brees and getting a better running game. Andrus Peat is a plug and play offensive lineman. He will play tackle. He has strictly played on the left side, but I think he could be the guy on the right side at tackle and Zach Strief gets moved inside.

Play your best five players and Peat is one of the best five, but he is not a guard, he is a tackle. Good pick. Big man who can move his feet, technically sound, has a “power” game to him and yet he is so light on his feet for a big man. And he is only 21 years old. He won’t turn 22 years old until November. Playing pro ball won’t be “huge” to him. His athleticism and technical skills are very good for a young player entering the NFL. He was well coached at Stanford and his dad, Todd Peat, was an excellent pro offensive guard with the Phoenix Cardinals and the Los Angeles Raiders.

10 solid questions well worth one more ride down the post draft review road.

2. Were you surprised by the relative lack of big draft moves by teams, including by the Saints?

3. The Saints picked Colorado State quarterback Garrett Grayson in the third round, the third overall quarterback selected.You had rated Baylor’s Bryce Petty higher than Grayson. Why do you think the Saints grabbed Grayson first and is he the heir apparent to Drew Brees?

4. The Saints ended a long first round linebacker drought by using their second pick on linebacker Stephone Anthony of Clemson. You were on him going to New Orleans for weeks before the draft. Will he be an immediate starter?

5. Have the Saints adequately addressed their defensive weaknesses in this draft? You spoke about this team going after a veteran defensive lineman. Is that guy Kevin Williams?

6. Were you surprised the Saints did not pick a single tight end or wide receiver?

7. Which undrafted free agent signed by the Saints do you think has the best chance of making the 53-man roster?

8. Does the selection of a return man Marcus Murphy in the seventh round indicate that wide receiver Brandin Cooks has probably fielded his last punt?

9. How would you rate the Saints’ 2015 draft class?

10. Finally, the Saints drafted two defensive backs in 2015: are Stanley Jean-Baptiste’s days numbered with the Saints?

Good read. Agree with him on our defensive line.

Tyeler Davison should get in the rotation early and have a good impact. Also, the are bringing in Kevin Williams so we know where the weaknesses are that they see.

We may have some sleepers in the UDFA DL/DT signees.
