Mel Kiper Mock Draft Version 2.0

Saints select...

Solomon Thomas, DE, Stanford

"By their recent standards, the Saints took a small step forward on defense last season, but they really only went from "worst" to "almost the worst." They simply have to get better on that side of the ball if they want to be more than a .500-range team, even with a great offense. Thomas can be a terror as a pass-rusher, but he's a pretty complete player and simply makes you better."

Could Solomon Thomas be this year's Sheldon Rankins?

I think he could.

We won't get a shot at him at 11.

Here's the thing with this year's draft - Will Cleveland, San Francisco and Chicago stay disciplined and take the BPA or will owner's and luxury suite/season ticket politics push these teams to reach for QBs???

I suspect that if one takes a QB, you'll see an early run because you have two other playoff teams downstream Texans & Broncos who are feeling that their QBs are limiting their respective team's success...

Not to mention you've got two potential playoff teams in the Jets and Bills who are directly limited by their QB play...

Then you've got 'Zona who'd really like to get some youth at the position and not deal with the imminent retirement and fragility of Carson Palmer any longer...

So there's teams there who'll pull the trigger and maybe don't want to draft overrated QBs in Watson and Kizer...

A lot of those teams'll be drafting after us. How will those effect the available players in the positions we really need at #11?
