Re: Day 2:

DeMarcus Walker, DE/DT, Florida State and I really like the Lattimore pick up. We got a CB just as good if not better than Butler, a lot cheaper and keep the 32nd pick.

and although the OT pick is not sexy it fills a need that will be open now or the end of the season.

Re: Day 2:

I really like Duke Riley. He brings a ton of energy and athleticism that our defense could use. Plus, he's practically cut from the same cloth as Debo Jones who was a big time impact player for the Falcons now.

Re: Day 2:

I've been thinking the same thing about Samuel. Maybe not in the second round, but if he falls to the third I wouldn't be surprised to see the Saints take him, if he's there when they pick.

He's the scat back, who can play slot, that Payton likes to have. We don't have one of those now, so Samuel (especially considering he's a Buckeye) seems like the guy he'd take.

I wouldn't mind the player, but I believe there are bigger needs. I guess it depends on how much they value the remaining pass rushers and linebackers. I like Tarell Basham, from Ohio, as a third round prospect. Not sure about second round with him. Not high on many of the other edge rushers at this point. Some pretty good linebackers left, though.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Day 2:

Both picks have been injured and Ramczyk just had hip surgery. I like the players but the potential is high they will be on the bench. High risk high reward.

I like him, too. Kendell Beckwith, as well. Riley is little more dymanic, though, and he really improved tremendously in his last two years. Beckwith is just a really smart player who is a sound tackler, with solid speed for a middle linebacker. He'd be a good get in the third round or later.

Tim Williams is still there as a pass rusher, but lacks much of an all around game. Who knows what will happen, but it'll be interesting.

Re: Day 2:

players the saints will not draft because I want them

Marcus Williams FS Utah 6005 202 4.56 #20 Jr
Tarell Basham DE Ohio 6036 269 4.70 #93 Sr
George Kittle TE Iowa 6036 250 4.53 #46 rSr

another CB? write them off also because of me

Kevin King CB/FS/SS Washington 6032 200 4.43 #20 Sr
Fabian Moreau CB UCLA 6004 206 4.35 #10 rSr
Quincy Wilson CB/FS Florida 6012 211 4.54 #6 Jr
Chidobe Awuzie CB Colorado 5113 205 4.44 #4 Sr

I am curious to see if this reported love affair is true

Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston 6021 240 4.67 #81 Sr

another OSU player? does this love affair continue?

Raekwon McMillam ILB Ohio State 6016 240 4.78 #5 Jr

Annual small school wonder?

Derek Rivers DE Youngstown St 6042 255 4.61 #11

then there is

Joe Mixon, RB, Oklahoma 6011 226 4.45 #25 rSo

Not on my list at 42 so the saints will probably draft from here.
