Which Big Boards and Team Needs do you guys use?

Seems to make a big difference.

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

17: R1P17
RB CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY
STANFORD

McCaffrey would be like adding Nitrous to this offense (perhaps what Payton envisioned Reggie Bush); as bad as this defense needs the talent, McCaffrey's skills would allow the Saints to improve time of possession - thereby helping the defense...

32: R1P32
DL MALIK MCDOWELL
MICHIGAN STATE

Doubt he falls like this, but if McDowell were there, he's be the perfect complement to Cam Jordan; he rarely loses 1:1 and putting him out on the end, with his length, range and athletcism would be the final piece on the vice to squeeze the life out of opposing passers...

42: R2P10
CB FABIAN MOREAU
UCLA

He effortlessly runs with receivers, mirroring their routes as well as the receivers know them themselves; he'd be the perfect insurance policy to either of our starting CBs and will be an All-Pro before long...

49: R2P17
S MARCUS WILLIAMS
UTAH

While I prefer more physical safeties like Josh Johnson; I want a safety with length who will always be their in the backstop to have a chance at making a play, and Williams has ability to do just that...

76: R3P12
WR CHAD HANSEN
CALIFORNIA

This is the next great steal at WR for the Saints; go, watch his tape; if you thought Kupp was something, check this guy out; ridiculous catches and has already worked in a pro system with Davis Webb...

103: R3P39
EDGE TREY HENDRICKSON
FLORIDA ATLANTIC

This is a Bill Parcells/Sean Payton football player if ever there was one; he already may be better that Paul Kruger was at this stage of his career; great interview, positive personality, loves football, and shows the initiative it takes to be great in the NFL...

196: R6P12
LB JORDAN EVANS
OKLAHOMA

I really don't believe Evans last past the end of the third round because he does something most LBs can't do - he can cover RBs, WRs, and TEs; Pro Combine snub who ran off fantastic sprints and shuttles at his pro-day to prove he belongs...

229: R7P11
G COREY LEVIN
CHATTANOOGA

Late Bloomer, Diamond in the rough; I wouldn't take a chance of letting this kid become a UDRFA; He could be starting by year 2...

TRADE PARTNER:
WASHINGTON REDSKINS
SENT:
ROUND: 1 PICK: 11
RECEIVED:
ROUND: 1 PICK: 17

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

This is d*mn near close to the draft I'd like to see for the Saints...

No. 001 (R1, P11) RB CHRISTIAN MCCAFFREY, STANFORD

Class act, smart, athletic, good blood lines, WINNER, LEADER and would be a great prescence in the huddle to transition from Brees to (x) someday; then there's the fact he's an athletic freak and your modern day half back who can run, catch; as I've said before, he'd be like Nitrous in this offense...

No. 032 (R1, P32) LB/DE T.J. WATT, WISCONSIN

The more games I'm able to go back and watch, especially in chronology, you can really see his game progress; huge ceiling; he's an absolute playmaker in the flat; good bloodlines, but he's earned his own keep and will continue to get better; versatile and athletic, former tight end...

No. 042 (R2, P10) CB KEVIN KING, WASHINGTON

Payton has talked a lot about length and being able to play press and run with bigger receivers like those in our division (e.g. Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Greg Olsen/Kelvin Benjamin) and this kid has done it quietly while Syd Jones got the spot light; previously I had Moreau here, and I'd be happy with either one...

No. 076 (R3, P12) TE ADAM SHAHEEN, ASHLAND

This kid is basically Jimmy Graham, big running jumping deer, but he's bigger and can aid in blocking as well; he physically is everything you'd want in a TE; both the most important aspect about him is that when he realize he'd reached a ceiling in basketball, he regroup and developed himself into a top NFL TE prospect pretty much on his own drive, initiative and put his school on the map when no bigger programs (Ohio State) wanted him and now regret it; and if he'd played for the Buckeyes, his name would be right there with the kid from 'Bama...

No. 103 (R3, P39) WR CHAD HANSEN, CALIFORNIA

I really like this kid's game and he's an absolute perfect complementary wide receiver to what we do; and should we have a brief injury with Can'tGuardMike, this kid has the money hands, speeds, and subtle route running to take over in a game. Check his film and i'll become evident almost immediately...

No. 196 (R6, P12) QB CHAD KELLY, MISSISSIPPI

Okay, besides Brett Favre, can you name another quarterback that beat Bama and Auburn in the same year? He has the strongest arm in the class; he may be a bit thick in the head, but he's got bloodlines and game to boot; perhaps taking him here will give him the humble pie he needs to start anew; and his arrest was for defending a family member in a post-game melee, not punching a woman.

No. 229 (R7, P11) LB JORDAN EVANS, OKLAHOMA

This kid can run and cover, but he does need some work on scheme, reads, etc, but that's okay as he'd be able to contribute and have an impact on special teams immediately and develop behind Klein...

http://fanspeak.com/ontheclock/premi...t.php?d=lwqiwe

There are six other players I really like in this draft...

LB Reuben Foster, Bama - After the Klein signing, I backed off some; and then there were reports he was just okay in reads in meetings with teams; plus, I'm concerned about his medicals long-term without a 3rd party exam after the "Do You Know Who I Am?" flap...

DL Malik McDowell, Michigan St - I'd abso-freakin-lutley love to line McDowell at an End opposite Jordan; he should have been at the DE spot but played NT for the team; he's nearly unstoppable 1:1 and would be the perfect guy to throw into our DL mix...

CB Fabian Moreau, UCLA - Breaux and Moreau, can just hear it now; most impressive CB running with WRs in the draft; the former RB almost knows what the WR are going to do before they know what they're going to do; he looks like the epitome of tight man coverage...

OT Ryan Ramcyzk, Wisconsin - I'm a sucker for self-starter, own initiative types and Ramcyzk is probably the best former walk-on to be in the NFL draft in the last ten-plus years; he's an absolute monster and I'd even go so far as that if we drafted him and traded Armstead, I'd be alright with it...

OG Dan Feeney, Indiana - Gotta love a big, burly nasty guard who can intimidate defensive linemen; it won't take long for Feeney to make the ProBowl, or All-Pro for that matter; Boilles and Lampman are getting the air time, but Feeney will be the best of this guard group...

DL Eddie Vanderdoes, UCLA - He's been on the bad end of a freak injury during a celebration and his recovery has been hampered by poor conditioning; sure wished he could have committed or played for better programs than Notre Dame or UCLA; but this guy is an absolute monster who could dominate like Ndamukong Suh in the NFL with proper coaching, conditioning...

Re: Fanspeak 2017 NFL Draft Simulator

My favorite TE prospect in this draft class; Big, Nasty, Fast, High Ceiling; and you can see he's just realizing what he's capable of doing...

Even if he can play through it, would he still be 100%?
