Re: 3 Round Draft Predictions

I'll try something outside the box, sort of...

1. DE Shaq Lawson
2. DT Victor Butler (trade up 1/2 round)
3. OG Joe Dahl

Or maybe not.

Re: 3 Round Draft Predictions

You are both wrong. Isn't this like voting on a poll?

Re: 3 Round Draft Predictions

I did my due diligence with this question and ran a fanspeak 3 round draft. What follows is how the board played out. I ran the simulation 3 times using 3 separate boards.

Round 1 - Shaq Lawson - DE/EDGE - Clemson
2 of 3 simulations had Lawson still in play with the only exception being the 1st simulation that dropped Hargreaves into my lap and I snapped him up. However, with the exception of Hargreaves that simulation was a bust as no DTs or DEs were available in the 2nd round. The more tape I see of Lawson the more I like the kid. He has a quick first move and multiple rush moves(spin, bull, etc.) Lawson is decent but not great against the run and paired with Cam could get double digit sacks in his first season.

Round 2 - Vernon Butler - DT - Louisiana Tech
I waited on a DT in every simulation and felt good about having Butler there in the 2nd round. I am not sold on Rankins being a top tier D-lineman. DT is so deep this year that Butler would be a top 15 pick in any other year. He is exactly what you want in a runstopping DT. He compares to Muhammed Wilkerson and would give us a solid front 4 with Fairly beside him.

Round 3 - Joshua Garnett - OG - Stanford
This is where things got tricky. I knew a guard was a must in the first three rounds so I hoped at least 1 of the top names fell in the 3rd round. Garnett and Christian Westerman out of Arizona State were the 2 names to choose from but I am most comfortable with Garnett in a zone blocking scheme. Watch the film and you will see a guy throwing around defenders like rag dolls. He is big, strong and athletic which is what the Saints need in a Guard.

We've spent so much time with Spence I have to believe we want him but I can't see us taking him in the first round. Edge rusher is a must early in this draft.
