Saints Possible Options At Pick No. 11

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; 9 games double digit points on us in the 4th. Foster has some issues but we really need defenders with an attitude. He has that mentality. We also have some good young defenders for him to gel with for mentoring....

I'll still take Cunningham over Foster.

Injury concerns (Foster) have you swayed or do you think Zach is the better overall LB prospect?
I think if Zach went to any other school not named Vanderbilt, he would be a household name.

Barnett - Like Thomas, Willis (2nd) and Kpassagnon (3rd) better.
Fournette - At 32 sure. A RB in Peytons offense can be found in round 6-7 or in free agency.
Foster - Bama fan. Injuries and attitude are a big red flag. Like McMillan more.
Adams - Just don't see the impact or need that high.
McCaffrey - At 32 sure. All around RB with special teams skills.
Charlton - Size and tools. Scares me on production.

If available at #11, I would go Thomas, Lattimore, Allen, Watson, Williams, Howard, Reddick, or Robinson.

I agree and he probably would have been taught to put more effort into his tackling. That is my #1 knock against him. He is a spaghetti armed tacking machine.

The second knock is absolutely nothing that coaching and reps at the same position can not improve.

I would not be shocked to see him on the board at 32. It would be a mild shocked if he was still there when we pick in round 2.

No way he gets to the third.

"Other people learn different, other people have ADHD, or have a learning disorder. X's and O's on boards is hard to do for me. I second-guess myself."

He performs best when watching film and learning on the field, [Nick] Saban says. "If you put on the film he'll be able to tell you chapter and verse because that's how he learned it."
In the story, Saban said he hopes whichever NFL team drafts Foster provides him with a "support network" similar to what he had at Alabama. Said Saban, "I think it's important that he has people around him who will provide him good direction, have good experience and the ability to anticipate what's happening, so you don't get these emotional responses to things that are insignificant."
LET ME TRY TO EXPLAIN








This proves that Alabama will graduate anyone.

If he has a problem with X's and O's he'd be in great company. Our D is not exactly so so at tic tac toe.

I mean he went and got an Auburn tattoo and then committed to Bama. I don't like him or his primadonna attitude but... if Rouxben Foster is there at 11, you'd have to strongly consider him. He may be dumb as a box of rocks, but he's a fine linebacker and knows how to play football. There are plenty of good NFL football players that are barely literate.

You put Reuben Foster at weak side LB and you let him just snot bubble RB's or anyone in his zone. He doesn't have to think too much, just see it and go get it.
