Round 1 (No. 11 overall): DE Derek Barnett, Tennessee
I’ll wrestle with this pick until the draft. There will be defensive end/edge defender type players available for the taking at this spot. Players like Barnett, Michigan’s Taco Charlton and Temple’s Haason Reddick are a few names sticking out to me as potential picks for No. 11 with good pass-rushing abilities.
For now, my pick is Barnett. My logic at this point is the same logic I carried during a few of my mock drafts last offseason. I valued overall production with former Clemson defensive end Shaq Lawson until I realized his health could be a red flag. I ended up like many of the draft pundits turning to Sheldon Rankins in the end.
I can’t see this pick being as clear-cut as Rankins.



Barnett (CBS Sports: Robert Ayers; NFL.com: Nick Perry) doesn’t carry with him the same lofty comparisons as Charlton (CBS Sports: Chandler Jones; NFL.com: Justin Tuck). I’m going more for the consistent player in college.
The 6-foot-3, 259-pounder led the SEC in tackles for a loss his freshman season with 20Ĺ and tallied 10 sacks. He piled up 10 more sacks his sophomore campaign. Finally, Barnett earned first-team All-American honors with 12 sacks.
Maybe I flip at some point, but Barnett seems like someone you know can help the Saints defense right away.

He's got , get this, TWO LSU PLAYERS in this latest mock. Nice if that actually happens.

I can't lie, I'd be ecstatic if our draft went exactly like Holder's. Derek Barnett reminds me of Will Smith, Tre'davious White is a guy I've been beating the drum for all offseason, and Duke Riley gives us some speed at LB'er that I've really been wanting to add. Then if we can get Butler too...I can see our nickel package now.

Barnett - Rankins - Fairley - Jordan
Klein - Robertson
Butler - White - Byrd - Vacarro - Breaux

Tre White @ #32 would make me very happy.

This kid is going to be a play maker at the next level.

I'll be a bit surprised if Samuel's still on the board at #42. Maybe even a little more surprised if we're still on the board if you know what I mean.

Not a pick in this mock for the saints I don't like. I still feel we need a safety somewhere in the draft.

I see you hold him at approximately the same esteem as myself.
