Round 1 (No. 11 overall): Defensive End Taco Charlton, Michigan
The Saints will have plenty of options if they stay at No. 11 but I donít think they can pass up Charlton. We all know pass rush is the Saintsí greatest need and this selectin could come down to a choice between Charlton vs. Derek Barnett. Barnett is more consistent and productive. Charlton is more athletic and precocious. Tough call but Sean Payton and Mickey Loomis are naturally aggressive and the ceiling for Charlton is greater than Barnettís. The 6-5, 277-pound Charlton has tremendous size and has been compared to Justin Tuck and Chandler Jones. The Saints would gladly take that kind of talent alongside Cameron Jordan, Sheldon Rankins and Nick Fairley. I also loved this comment from an NFL scout about Charlton in The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: ďLoved by his teammates and loves the game of football."

Im not as up to speed this year but out of the pass rushers likely there at 11 i like him. Its the weight as much as anything. I dont like 250lb DE. They get tun off the line too often.

Solomon Thomas
Derek Barnett
Demarcus Walker
Takk McKinley (UCLA Pro Day is 3/21/17)

All above DE graded better than "Taco" Charlton this season. IMO any team selecting him prior to pick #15 is reaching.

Takk is arguably the 2nd best DE's in this draft class behind Myles G. Remember how it went the last time we passed on a UCLA player (Saints selected Kikaha, very next pick was Eric Kendricks who has already become a young stud).

Ireland and company must nail these upcoming draft selections.

for anyone who covers the Saints I am at a lost that they think we have ever drafted on 'NEEDS'. It has always been under our courrent regime to draft BPA unless its a WR then always WR... LMAO.

Does anyone else cringe at the words huge upside? Let's go for combat ready instead of "project". Especially for our first pick.

And second.

And third.....

Taco has some speed and agility. I could see it. Not a great bull rusher but if he gets back there look out. He also has some good spin moves. Certainly an upgrade for us.
