D'onte Forman rb.-Texas could be an option in the 2nd round. Power back with patients.

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Draft - Scouting Prospect Visits, Bowl Games

Round 1 - 11

O.J. Howard TE Alabama 6055 251 4.51 #88 Sr
Drew gets a great big weapon that is not only the best TE in the draft as a TE and one of the best receivers in the draft. He also knows how to blocker. Big plus he gives the saints an out from the terrible contract to Coby Fleener

Round 1 - 32
Garret Bolles OT/OG/DT Utah 6052 296 4.97 #75 Jr
The saints figure out what a true swing OT is all about and get that RT they tried make out of Andrus Peat in 2015 who can only play on the left side.

Man o man with defense on every ones mind this draft on day one this would really would have the saints nation scratching there heads and the air waves booming.

Round 2
T.J. Watt OLB/DE/TE Wisconsin 6044 252 4.69 #42 rJr


Round 3
Kevin King CB/SS/FS Washington 6032 200 4.43 #20 Sr


Round 3 - 103
Josh Jones SS/FS/LB N.C. State 6013 220 4.41 #11 rJr



Still pondering 6 and 7

Rouind 6
Robert Davis WR Georgia State 6025 219 4.45 #19 Sr
or
Keionta Davis, DE, Chattanooga 6030 274 4.86 #93 rSr


Round 7
Mack Hollins WR NC State 6036 221 4.53 #13 Sr
or
Isaac Rochell DE/DT ND 6043 282 4.86 #90 Sr

Ever seen him pick up a blitz or just block?

If not do not feel bad neither has any Texas QB.

He will get Drew killed.

Draft defense the first two rounds ... play makers, ball hawks, impact players, difference makers. You know, things we currently don't have in New Orleans.

You spend a first, second round pick on a DB he better be a starter and give you at least four to five years for his selection that high...

Don't like CB that are under 190 lbs and 6' 0" for that reason...

Made my first exception in a while has been with Adoree' Jackson this year...

Don't see him as anything but an exceptional nickel back who can be explosive as a returner on special teams...

But even if the Saints took him, I'd still want Del Breaux and PJ Williams starting and hope PJ's bad luck is behind him...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

How realistic do you guys think it is to take Haason Reddick with #11? Perhaps that's a little early but we could plug him in at WLB and potentially have our own Lavonte David.

Report: Obi Melifonwu to visit Steelers, Saints, Seahawks
Report: Obi Melifonwu to visit Steelers, Saints, Seahawks - NFL.com

Steelers picks 30 and 62
Seahawks pick 26 and 58
Saints picks 11 32 and 42

Just miss him in the 1st or get first shot at him in the 2nd

Re: 2017 New Orleans Saints Draft - Scouting Prospect Visits, Bowl Games

My mock
Round 1 Pick#11 Zack Cunningham ILB/OLB- can finally get a cover OLB
Round 1 Pick#32 J. Peppers SS/FS/KR - loves the game and can play ball
Round 2 Pick#42 Malik Mc Dowell DE- tough guy and need consistancy. I had Jordan Willis here at 1 time but like McDowell a little better.
Round 3 Pick#76 Kevin King CB - instantly replaces the tub club cb.'s we have
Round 3 Pick#103 Howard Willis- CB- I doubled down on bigger cb.'s and these 2 are big with good speed to boot.

huge gamble and you better have a serious man crush to make this pick at 11.

He an Obi Melifonwuare the to off season beauty queens this year.

Haason Reddick bottom of the first makes me pause but i might do it.
In the second i pause and think Obi Melifonwuare is worth the risk. but if you got love you gotta marry the guy and put your job on the line.

both are still projects

Safest pick at 11 IMO still is O.J. Howard. I am ready to declare him the #1 perennial all pro player prospect in the draft. this is what you want in top 15. screw the position.

I would not reach or risk picks because of the need on defense. If the BPA is offense in the first 2 rounds and they actually serve as an upgrade or fill need you gotta take it.

Youth at RT has been a need for 2 years and still a glaring need. Defense does not change that fact.
