intriguing size and the production dispite playing in the funky 3-3-5 scheme. Means he has to cover longer than most CB dur to the lack of pressure. The frame and athleticism, willing to make contact as a tackler Can easily be converted to safety?

Taylor Moton ROT/ROG W. Michigan 6052 328 5.42 #72 rSr
balance and agility. length and power a quick first step. A 6-foot-5, 328-pound senior right tackle, Moton is projected as an early-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Hes strong in the way only kids from the Rust Belt can be. His max squat is 570 pounds and he throws up 400 pounds on the bench press with ease.

Maybe sell our 1st Round position for another 2nd Rd'er & more to get him...that'd make me pretty happy. Plus this draft is loaded with defense.
He's getting used at Senior Bowl Practices...

Kings lack of overall speed is killing him I bet. Wait till game time and see how he does

I initially thought Tre White as a Day 2 selection ... his stock could rise with a good Senior bowl and Pro Day performance.

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

I am stuck on O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

keep an eye on

Obi Melifonwu, S, Connecticut

Melifonwu, at 6-4 and 219 pounds, was all over the field on Wednesday. He's got outstanding range, making up so much distance in a hurry. Bob Diaco, the coach at UConn the past three years, said Melifonwu has more ability than any safety he's ever coached, and that includes Harrison Smith, the all-pro player for the Minnesota Vikings whom Diaco coached at Notre Dame. He's a matchup chess piece with movement skills. If Greg Olsen comes to town, you say, "That's your guy." The next week a wide receiver like Mike Evans comes to town, you say, "Go get him." I thought Melifonwu had an outstanding practice session on Wednesday.

Funny Greg Olsen and Mike Evans were mentioned huh? hint hint to the saints?

Obi Melifonwu FS/SS/OLB UConn 6032 216 4.58? #20 rSr

HGT WGT...HAND.....ARM......WING
6040 219....8 3/4 ....32 5/8.. 78 5/8

Raw but a size/speed freak with good ball skills. Obi Melifonwu has great size and awareness in coverage He keeping everything underneath his coverage. One of Obi's biggest strengths is his disciplined aggressive tackling. He is a versatile safety. While inside the "phone booth" as a traditional SS he shoots gaps and lays the lumber on people. HE needs to improve his positioning, and technique, But reports of going to put up big-time testing numbers. He'll run low 4.4s? and jump over 40 inches. He can play in the slot as well. Huge upside. SPEED MAYBE AN ISSUE BUT HIS QUICKNESS AND AGLITY SHOULD BE SOLID. Need to see that 4.4 speed.

He'll always be limited as a zone cornerback, kinda like a Jabari Greer...

King seems to have less athleticism, speed than Greer showed...

Man, I got real concerns about this guy...

Many 'Bama fans I do business with and associate with feel like he was a real disappointment for the Tide (Crucial drops, lack of scoring)...

And OJ really didn't flash till recently in his Tide tenure...

(So. Louisiana you have a noticeable amount of Bama transplants working here)

And as Bama/Saints fans, they aren't crazy about him going to the Saints...

Where we're selecting, I'd rather have Reuben Foster in a heartbeat...
