Saints Possible Options At Pick No. 11

Just a bit curious as everyone has been all over the place this off season, though we'd see where everyone is a month before the draft.

Assuming players LB Reuben Foster, RB Leonard Fournette, SS Jamaal Adams are available when we pick at No. 11, if Sean Payton himself were to phone you and asks "who would you take?", what would be your response?

Your scenario Adams no doubt, but I want a DE to be our pick! Barnett would be my pick

Re: Saints Possible Options At Pick No. 11

I think DE is the most pressing need at 11. There will be a CB there at 32 or 42.

I dont know much about Foster but some reports of his X-O knowledge not being there worries me. Ive wanted a big thumping RB for a while so wouldn't be upset if the snagged LF if he was there. I'd understand taking Watson too.

I really dont know this year
I full expect Charlton if he is there and i love his size as a 4-3 DE

DE Derek Barnett is most likely the pick but

I'm hoping we trade down a few picks and draft RB Christian McCaffrey. He will be a first year game changer and fits into what Payton does to create the #1 scoring offense in the league.

Also on a side note... there is some part of the Cracker in me that wants a white RB.

That seems to be playing a huge role in the McCaffrey love affair, but I can't say anything about that seeing as how I root for Black QB's and would love to have our first one in the city since Aaron Brooks (who wasn't as bad as he was made out to be).

I'd go Reuben Foster or Derek Barnett. Either would be fine with me.

That's hilarious! Look McCaffrey looks like he'd be a good grab and perfect for the system. But man we need some help on defense.

I wouldn't be upset with a McCaffrey pick as long as they drafted some serious defensive talent the rest of the way. But my pick at #11 is Barnett.

O.J. Howard TE Alabama 6055 251 4.51 #88 Sr

ARMS - 33 3/4
HANDS - 10
40 (1) 4.51
40 (2) 4.56
40 (O) 4.51
10 (1)
10 (2)
225 - 22
VJ - 30.0
BJ - 10'1"
20S - 4.16
60S- 11.46
3C - 6.85

Freak part? At the combine he ran as fast as David Johnson, beat Tyler Lockett's 3-cone, and beat Khalil Mack's shuttle

Best hands: O.J. Howard, Alabama

Not only has Howard dropped just six balls over the past three seasons combined, his catch radius is quite impressive. Howard is able to go down low and peel balls off the grass on one play and then grab a ball off of his back shoulder the next.

Best route runner: O.J. Howard, Alabama

Howard’s athleticism shines when it comes to running his routes. He’s such a gifted athlete, with exceptional acceleration and agility that he uses to create separation virtually at will.

I love this pick too... 6'5" WR... TE Jimmy Graham who can block... WTF?
He is an instant game changer with Sean Payton and Drew Brees.
