for those with Mike D's draft guide
who does he have the saints picking this year?
it is interesting because in t2004 he said this:
1. Derrick Johnson-Outside Linebacker Texas
Playmaker deluxe. Has the physical skills to be the most dominant linebacker since Lavar Arrington and Brian Urlacher came out of college.
7. Anttaj Hawthorne- Defensive Tackle Wisconsin
This 6-3, 300-pound Badger is just not your typical run-stuffer in the middle, but he is also a very active penetrator and pass rusher from the inside.
11. Andrew Walter- Quarterback Arizona State
Had a disappointing junior campaign at ASU, but he has the size, arm strength, escape ability and accuracy the pros covet.
14. Wesley Britt-Offensive Tackle Alabama
He's coming off a serious leg injury, but he is a double-tough competitor who excels as a run blocker. If he upgrades his pass protection skills and is healthy, Britt will be picked in the upper-half of the 1st round in 2005
15. Darrent Williams- Cornerback Oklahoma State
Most of the accolades go to the Sooner DB's, but this Cowboy is some kind of special cover man. Darrent has excellent man-to-man coverage skills and his make-up recovery speed is top-flight.
19. Alex Barron- Offensive Tackle Florida State
Barron thought seriously about coming out early for the 2004 draft, but he made the right choice to stay at school another season. At 6-6, 315 pounds, he is quite a physical talent and now he can fine-tune his overall skills as a technician.
20. Jammal Brown- Offensive Tackle Oklahoma
Power-packed tackle who moves very well for a 325 pounder. His run blocking skills are very good and with some refinement work as a pass protector QB. Jason White will have another big season in Norman
22. Kevin Burnett- Outside Linebacker Tennessee
Had a major knee injury at the start of the 2002 season, but he's back and healthy now and ready to turn up the heat. At 6-3, 235 pounds he has the size the pros covet and the foot speed opponents fear.
32. Kirk Morrison- Inside Linebacker San Diego State
Morrison would have been a top 45 pick if he had decided to come out early. Kirk has excellent foot speed, quick diagnostic skills and he has great range out on the field.
33. Mike Patterson-Defensive Tackle USC
Patterson's only 6-0, but he has superb inside penetration moves and very good pass rush skills. "Baby Sapp" has a relentless motor and excellent football instincts.
I'd like to see how this compares to now.
