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

Here is what I expect. The Bucs will draft LB Kendall Beckwith from LSU in the 3rd round, putting him next to Kwon Alexander and LeVontae David, both pro bowlers. Alexander was the LSU LB two years ago who ran a 4.3 40. They'll have their version of the Dome Patrol. Atlanta will draft Duke Riley in the 4th round and he'll round out their D as he'll rejoin ex-LSU LB Deion Jones, the rookie LB from LSU and Jesuit and New Orleans native who ran a 4.3 40 as well. The Cardinals will draft Tredavious White, DB
from LSU joining him with Patrick Peterson and the Honey Badger
surpassing the Legion of Boom as the best secondary in the league. Finally Fournette will take the lowly Jets to the playoffs next year. The Saints will once again pass on all LSU players and I dont get it. Of course I'm an LSU homer but that doesn't mean I'm wrong. I just watched Jarvis Landry, pro bowl WR catching balls from Tanneyhill beat Beckham in the hands competition and we took Stanley Jean Baptiste(not in the NFL) over him. I could list countless examples of this, but I'm done.

OK. Fournette is out of reach so Id take Tredavious White in the 2nd, Kendall Beckwith in the 3rd, NT Christian LaCotoure in the 4th, Duke Riley in the 5th and NT Davon Godchaux in the 6th. Package that with Christian McCaffrey at #11 in the first rd and Ill be satisfied. If Tennessees DE is available at 11, which I doubt, we cant pass him up but like I said hell be gone.

I know I'm jumping ahead (position coaches hadn't been hired yet & draft is months away) but I'd love to see what Mike Nolan could do with a draft pick like Reuben Foster.

Boy.

You made me look up who his middle linebackers have been at his previous coaching stops and he's had some great ones...

2002-2004 Ravens (Defensive Coordinator)- Ray Lewis
2007-2008 49ers (Head Coach)- Patrick Willis

I can hear the screams now if the #1 pick is "skill position"!
