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

A'Shawn Robinson? he is looking to be a solid option as the saints win there way out of the top 10.

Of all the DL in this draft, he is the one that you know what you are drafting and there is not any hype in his game or ranking. So i officially will say this about Roberson

Robinson actually maybe the safest pick in the first round of the draft.


I compare Robinson with Kawann Short of the Panthers.

If the saints draft, say Austin Johnson Penn St. in the second, who i compare to a poor mans Star Lotulelei issues up front may become a mute issue.

The saints DT/NT rotation would have a chance to become the strongest position on the defense and have a rotation that could rival most teams in the NFL. Elite might be a safe word to use. If the saints go with a 43 defense.

John Jenkins while showing flashes has proven not to be the answer as a starter but can fill the roll as second player off the bench along with Austin Johnson as an active rotation. 50/50 playing time kind of rotation. Practice out of the Ravens playbook till the hotter hand shows itself. Neither can play the time Star Lotulelei does. But the rotation could equal his production IMO

Tyeler Davison rotating with Robinson and maybe Kaleb Eulls who has shown enough to keep around and keep training the kid up as your flex DE/DT player on the depth chart.

A'Shawn Robinson DT
Austin Johnson NT
John Jenkins NT
Tyeler Davison DT
Kaleb Eulls DT/DE

not a bad way to start the 2016 season.

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...
after really watching him play last night, guard is the only position i can see him playing. but the biggest concern i have with him is the fact he appeared lost at the second level when his assignment could not easily be found. kind of a "Which Way Did He Go" comedy skits.


Now Le'Raven Clark of Texas Tech still has my interest as an OT that belongs inside. I read about the kid and all the negatives and I agree the biggest issue with him is he is spread OL that uses his hands too much and that leads to grabbing. Project sure but well worth looking into. round 4? round 5? He did a great job going after second level defensive players.

We slept on Marcus Peters for off the field issues. I'd take the chance on Nkemdiche.

Im sick of watching others take chances on guys with 'character' issues. Just in the past few years we have missed out on Mathieu,Burfict,Henderson by refusing to look at these guys

Like him too. He could be a difference maker at the next level ... he could cover the likes of Austin Jenkins or all world Greg Olsen (we know all too well) but as others have stated, "F/A for cost friendly players - fill our needs there".

When the draft rolls around, take the best player available. If it's Treadwell, Hargreaves, Jack etc ... I'd be cool with that .

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

with spiller on IR and the smell of injury settlement in the air I have a RB I want to bring up.

C.J. Prosise RB/WR Notre Dame 6011 220 4.62

I really think that 4.62 listing is wrong. He may not be a 4.40 guy but a 4.62? I just do not see it on the field. Any ways if his time is wrong i hope the saints take a hard long look at the kid.

Two years working in the slot for the Irish before moving into the backfield as a RB really peaks my interest.

vision, burst, ability to make you miss, long speed and he’s tough to bring down.

zone-stretch scheme, power-blocking, the I-formation or the Spread Offense.

a complete back? pretty darn close

pass-protection is solid but there is room for improvement.

2016 look ahead at Hightower? he might have played his way out of town given the cap situation.

2016 WR? Looks like we have 4 on the roster. Now a RB that can or better yet has played in the slot could be a smart move. Opening up an additional roster spot for another position of need. He was a DB coming out of high school.

Yet he still has another year of eligibility left and has yet declared. If he gets a 3/4 projection he may just go to NFL. Which I have a hard time seeing him improving on based on the fact he does not have that WOW speed factor. 4.5 range seems about right.

If he get the 5/6 tag for the draft i am banking he will return to ND.

This does not look 4.6 speed to me

I don't know that it is a character issue more than the fact he is a moron issue. Any time someone freaks out on that mojo and spends time in a psyche hospital and then turns around and does it again is a moron. That stuff isn't addictive which means he chose to do it again. That stuff is wayyyyyy more likely to give you a psychotic episode than even LSD. I know many hard core drug users who won't touch that stuff. If he is willing to risk a psychotic episode just to smoke something that won't show up on tests what else might he do
