just do not see all the hype
Agree ... this guy has "Brian Bosworth" written all over him, IMO.

I could live with

Round 4/5 Denver Kirkland*, LG, Arkansas

A lot of beef up front to boost the run game
Don't like or trust Alexander, especially after he got his arse whipped by Bama and fell apart toward the end of the season...

Prefer Whitehair in the second round...

The Arkansas guard I've rated fourth round (see previous post) where I think he'll still be after the stockades and meat market...

Agree though, that we have to take at least one guard, if not two in the draft...

Updated 1st-Round Listings After Week 16

11. New Orleans Saints

Hmmm one more win and we will be into the hype zone of the draft

could we actually be picking between 15 and 20 when all is said and done?

what a huge change in players we will be talking about

And if he shows more than he has and is worth the grade, I've no problem taking him with a second or third round pick...

With the first rounder, Treadwell is the guy, just hope is still there now that the team has decided to start playing football earlier rather than now that their jobs are on the line...

I"m still going OG in the 1st. I can't see any pick other than on both front lines. Poor pass rush and a gaping hole in the middle has killed us for a while now and Evans is done at OG.

If Treadwell is there, we can't pass that up, would be a no brainer.

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

I like Treadwell. sold getting in and out of cuts, great going after the ball but he does not have elite break away speed. Which in most cases in the 2016 draft holds true for almost all the WR. this is the year of the possession wr.

could the saints find a true #1 WR in Tredwell?

I think it is a safe pick with little risk.

leg is the only concern and in the famous draft of 2014 when the saints went after Cook he probably would have been a 1/2 round ranked WR in that draft. I would have had him ranked ahead of Kelvin Benjamin. To be honest I would have ranked him with Cook because he is more of a true WR vs a gimmick/slot WR. I still think Cook was a reach for the saints.

Think a shorter version of Mike Evens and a taller version of Jarvis Landry.

He is not as athletic as Landry but he has hands that are close to those of Landry and better than Evens.

I think we saw what kind of WR he will be last week in Allen Robinson of the Jags who has turned into a steal of the second round of the 2014 draft same size and speed, But Treadwell is a polished route runner with better hands which were the biggest knocks against Allen.

Despite the WR hype in the draft I see this as solid yet unspectacular crop of WR in 2016. That pushes Tredwell up in the draft IMO. But well worth praying for as we keep dropping in the draft.

Still surprised no one is mentioning this dude in their 2016 pre draft conversations ...

Danno or anyone else who has watched a lot of Bama/SEC football this season, feel free to chime in and provide your thoughts and opinions.

Side note: Keep a lazy eye on him tomorrow night down here in Arlington vs MSU.
