2016 NFL Draft Prospect Thread ...............

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm still in the D lineman mindset at #12 pick. These needs could completely change depending on FA . Watch those run stuffers for Bama tonight. I'd say 4,5 or 6 could go in the first round. All we need ...

I'm still in the D lineman mindset at #12 pick. These needs could completely change depending on FA.

Watch those run stuffers for Bama tonight. I'd say 4,5 or 6 could go in the first round. All we need is do is select the right player that best fits our needs/scheme on D.

Edit: No disrespect to the Clemson squad - (specifically Shaq Lawson) I'll keep a lazy eye on their guys as well.

Re: 2016 NFL Draft Prospect Thread ...............

At 12 I am hoping for impact more than anything. Whatever the position the player needs to step in by the second year and become a starter for many years. pro bowls means you struck gold bit a long term solid starter is what i am expecting. we all know about busts, that is why I ahte hype at this point of the draft.

so WR DE DT QB are all options in my book.

Re: 2016 NFL Draft Prospect Thread ...............

1/11 (pre senior bowl)

going by CBSsports rankings:

Shaq Lawson DE Clemson
Vernon Hargreaves III CB Florida
Robert Nkemdiche DT/DE Ole Miss would all be there at pick 12. I'd even throw in Myles Jack LB UCLA due to his injury, he might still be on the board. Now if somehow all four are off the board, then I'd rather they draft another top offensive lineman as long as it isn't a reach

Shaq Lawson DE Clemson is a player i could see if we are a 43 defense. The other two i am not crazy about and never really have been.

Hartgreaves fits the CB we have. bad tacklers and that go for TO first. We need CB that can come up in run support and tackle.

Robert Nkemdiche I can not figure out. production is just not there, like DeForest Buckne I pause and get tenative. I would go for a player later in the draft that has the same kind of production issues IE Chris Jones

Not saying that the FO is looking specifically at Robert but maybe the Saints need to take some risks on these young knuckleheads with tremendous upside ?

Edit: After watching that fool Burfict vs the Steelers ...pass on those selfish players with talent.

Agree totaly on that. He is a hysical freak but doesn't seem to get it done. His latest off-field issues on top of that would make me Think twice.

He also has some off the field issues which the Saints won't play around with.

Really wish you'd add your knowledge on potential Saints prospects to the discussion, alot of forum members would appreciate that input...
Good point JP. Although I don't think thats why the previous scouts got canned, I am sorry for pissing on the parade.

I'm taking Lawson off my board, he playerd hurt, but showed a lack of discipline in a number of ways in last night's Championship game...

Hargreaves had some of his worst games against NFL competition, but I already had him off my list...

Nkemdiche I've never liked and his recent run-in with the law, and lying about it, removed any doubt that he should be our enemies headache...
