Mel Kiper Mock Draft 3.0

11.) New Orleans Saints - Haason Reddick, LB, Temple

No prospect has risen as much during the pre-draft process as Reddick has. He was fantastic at the Senior Bowl, and he was one of the MVPs of the combine, with a 4.52 40, 36.5-inch vertical and 11-foot-1 broad jump. Reddick's value is in his versatility -- he could play inside or outside in a 4-3 or 3-4, with his hand in the dirt or playing on his feet in space. The Saints have made an effort to improve their 31st-ranked defense in free agency, re-signing Nick Fairley and bringing in A.J. Klein, Manti Te'o and Alex Okafor, and Reddick (6-1, 237) would probably play outside in New Orleans' 4-3.

32.) New Orleans Saints (from Patriots) - Marlon Humphrey, CB, Alabama

The Saints are trying to pry away restricted free-agent corner Malcolm Butler from the Patriots, but until they do, the position is a weak spot on a defense that gave up the most passing yards per game (273.8) last season. Humphrey (6-0 197) has length, strength, speed and good bloodlines (his father is former NFL running back Bobby Humphrey). I had Haason Reddick going to the Saints with their other first-round pick, and I suspect they'd be happy with two defenders who could step in and play on Day 1.

I would not grumble with two day one starters picked up early.

Ugh, and overrated cb who showed to be above avg because of the qb pressure and a de that was off the radar until the combine. No thanks. No more projects or projected talents. We need a can't miss at 11 not a "chance Robbie great".

Marlon Humphrey at 32? I could live with no problem. Actually would say it was a steal.

Two picks with with everything banking on upside down the road. I can handle one but two? grrrrr

Re: Mel Kiper Mock Draft 3.0

THIS IS MY PICK:

After watching him in the combine I wasn't impressed with LB's more than him. I even have him over Foster. I would be happy as can be with this pick

Hagan,
Where is Tre' White on your board? If he is there at #32, are you still leaning towards Humphrey? The way some of these highly projected corners are getting injured, I could see one or two rising in stock. Something tells me Tre could go top #20 if closes out with a solid LSU Pro day (April 5).

Have you watched Humohrey play? He is avg at best. I would be pissed if we took him anywhere in the first 3 rounds.
