Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

At this point I wouldn't be surprised to see them draft a WR or a CB either.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

I am sticking with S/CB hybrids day 2 and 3. One of the best drafts for those in a few years. kill two birds one stone. add 2 and kill 4 birds with 2 stones.

SS is screaming at me. WEAK SPOT!! Then again it could just be my echo from the pass few years

Yeah, but we've got Kenny V, Vinnie Sunseri and Erik Harris; so if we get Sua Cravens, where's he gonna play?!? Cut Sunseri?!? Trade Kenny V?!?

This is a good thing. I hope the draft is just as boring. This is what the saints needed to do. except for signing.

SS (3) Kenny Vaccaro, Vinnie Sunseri, Erik Harris

FS (2) Jairus Byrd, Jamarca Sanford, Alden Darby

Not one of these guys has job security in my book. I would not let Kenny hold us hostage in FA. let him walk and take the comp pick if he thinks he all that great as a Safety. I can not wait to get from underneath Byrds contract. This is a good deep year to add some serious depth upgrades in the secondary. Let the back ups slug it out. plenty of room for healthy upgrades. At least some that will a bigger impact on special teams while waiting for annual IR bug land. Start grooming replacements now.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

We now have some room for a Terron Armstead extension as well as for a first round draft pick (remaining picks will not count as their alloted amount will not be among the Top 51 earners)...

Or perhaps we can take a look at adding C/G Stefen Wisniewski?!?

Defensive Needs for the Draft

Note: Still don't know what we have at cornerback though safety has need with Raphael Bush departure; would like to draft a big, physical defensive back who could provide versatility as a press cornerback on taller receivers or flow to safety for us...

Note: Still need a big inside defensive linemen to help collapse the pocket...

Note: Could use a weakside/middle linebacker for coverage - Nick Vigil comes to mind...

Note: Could we float Damian Swann over as a centrefielder free safetey?!? Some have suggest P.J. but scouts had Swann as a safety candidate...
