Don't need to overrate height when evaluating. Or we could end up with another Browner.

Re: So who do we draft?

We need the best OLB/DE available. Another coverage ILB. A dominant WR, and Oline mostly. Lb depth would be good so the defense doesnt die mid season like this year.

Re: So who do we draft?

at this rate we are getting back into what they call a sure thing. lmao sure thing right. But one of my favs for the saints that stayed out of the draft last year is here this year.

Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame 6055 315 5.17

He would be sweet to have. Not only is he one of the top OT but many think a move back to LOG were he started would be his best move and give him a shot at multiple years as an all pro vs outside at OT. Which I can understand and see in his game. You can speed rush the kid but your not going to out dance him or push him around a phone booth. Switches off smoothly and is incredibly smart.

Armstead and Stanely would be a dangerous duo. Add to it the ability to jump outside in case of injury would be huge. he can go RT or LT. he is that gifted. Unlike Andrus Peat, he is not a project to make versatile.

I had him rated as the same type of player Collins last year. An OT that might be better off at OG. Stanely has more natural athletic ability.

Then draft one of the two road graders from Arkansas in the middle rounds
Sebastian Tretola, ROG, Arkansas 6045 334 5.28
Denver Kirkland OG/OT Arkansas 6045 340 5.47

The saints OL wows would all but disappear.

just a thought.

Get a good legitimate number 1 reciever in the first. Draft defensive and offensive line including a pass rusher. Our secondary will be fine.

So how do we get all of that in one offseason?
