CSN Mock post FA

11. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS - O.J. HOWARD, TE, ALABAMA

The Saints haven't adequately replaced Jimmy Graham -- until now. The 6-foot-6 Howard dominated the Senor Bowl, only adding to his already formidable hype. Speed receiver John Ross becomes an option if New Orleans deals Brandin Cooks and New Orleans could certainly add corners considering the receivers in the NFC South.

32. New Orleans Saints (Via NE) - Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama
32. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (VIA NE) - MARLON HUMPHREY, CB, ALABAMA

With six divisional games against the likes of Julio Jones, Mike Evans and Kelvin Benjamin, stocking up at corner is a smart strategy. That the 2016 Saints ranked among the bottom teams in passing yards allowed provides further ammunition for taking a pass defender. That the Saints didn't acquire Malcolm Butler in the Brandin Cooks trade means they should probably use New England's ex-pick to get that kind of help.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

I don't really trust Alabama cornerbacks. Humphrey has the size and speed I like. He's also very aggressive, but he gives up the big play because of it

I'll tell you who I'm starting to like at #11 if Reuben Foster is gone, Sidney Jones. Sidney Jones is one hell of a corner. 6'0. 4.4 speed. Press, man corner. He's exactly what we're looking for.

The National Championship Game showed me he was just like pretty much every other Alabama corner. The same way Bellichick can make a DB, Nick Saban does the same thing.

For real? WTF!? Why would he even do a Pro Day? Damn it man....if he's there in the 3rd or 4th round I'd take him. He's going to be a star.

I don't like this mock .. at all.

Where is Reuben Foster? Solomon Thomas, Takk McKinley OR Barnett aka Mr. Consistency?? There is no way I'd take a TE at #11 when we are in desperation mode for a DE/pass rusher.
