Mike D's 6-20, who do you like at 11?

6. Derek Barnett - Defensive End, Tennessee

7. Jamal Adams - Strong Safety, LSU

8. Malik Hooker - Free Safety, Ohio State

9. Mike Williams - Wide Receiver, Clemson

10. Reuben Foster - Inside Linebacker, Alabama

11. Solomon Thomas - Defensive End, Stanford

12. Jalen "Teez" Tabor - Cornerback, Florida

13. Cam Robinson - Offensive Tackle, Alabama

14. Tim Williams - Outside Linebacker, Alabama

19. Marshon Lattimore - Cornerback, Ohio State

20. Mitch Trubisky - Quarterback, North Carolina
Many guys slide up and down the list, but of his guys from 6 to 20, who are your top 3 for the Saints at pick 11?


Mine...

6. Derek Barnett - Defensive End, Tennessee (the perfect compliment to Cam Jordan. Its truly a perfect fit)

10. Reuben Foster - Inside Linebacker, Alabama (He's pretty close to being the next Ray Lewis, I'm thinking thats a plus)

13. Cam Robinson - Offensive Tackle, Alabama (He's probably not an elite LT prospect, but everything I'm reading says he could be an elite RT for a decade plus).

If we can't sign Zach Brown in free agency then it's gotta be Reuben Foster. Can't rebuild a defense without a Mike LB.

As far as that list goes, give me Foster, Derek Barnett or Marshon Lattimore.

Round 1 requirement. impact player that can starter day one. The fact you have a chance at a player that is a FREAK and is unlike anything we have seen in the past is only icing on the cake. This early in round one BPA absolutely trumps Needs. One of the safest picks to boot. If not the safest pick in round 1

O.J. Howard TE Alabama 6055 251 4.57 #88 Sr

Is the pick that is all he is billed to be and actually has upside to boot. He proved it at senior bowl. He is the first big TE with solid blocking skills. Find me a WR or TE at 6'5" that run a 4.57 and fill the roll as a traditional TE without being a joke. Rob Gronkowski is the only one that comes to mind. He also blows open the escape clause in Coby Fleener contract in 2018.

Taking a page the Pats and using a double TE attack for an aging QB might not be a bad idea to use.

Next safest pick?
Jamal Adams - Strong Safety, LSU
Sidney Jones - Cornerback, Washington

I want to hate everything about your post because I want the Saints to draft a DE to free up Jordan.

However, the reasoning you posit for drafting Howard is extremely solid.

I will add that his value will outlast Brees and make the next QB's life much easier.

Thanks for the post Hagan.

I dig it.

If it make you feel better SP has a bad track record at picking my players in round 1. We seem to agree more in the mid to late rounds. some what.

So DE is still on the board for you

We need to resign Fairley, Rankins up to speed. Alphabet opposite Cam and we have a very good starting line. If we pick up either CB and LB in the 1st and 2nd or the reverse it would be most excellent. I think we should draft another CB probably in the 5th and sign a FA. Greer is probably gone because of salary but we could get a good one for his salary in FA.

Is he a Marcus Peters clone? I'd be extremely surprised if the Saints FO go corner back at #11.
