I could live with taking Evans there, but I don't think a Sean Payton/Saints pick in the first round will ever be a linebacker again...

Thomas is too short for what we need a TE to do and that is to box out defenders in the red zone and provide an obscene catch radius...

Love the picks of Neal and Fitts where you have them...

Really like Warner and Gossett, but I think they're going a round ahead of where you have them...

Nice list Chris!!!

Wynn is only 6' 2" and I'm not sure he's a fit for the Saints interior heavy scheme...

We're seeing his ceiling and he will get used by more experienced, disciplined defensive NFL linemen...

Maybe LSU/Saints Hybrids get their wish?

This is where I’m having trouble with us not having a 2nd round pick. All of the really good pass catching TE’s like Gesicki, Hurst, Goedert, etc are all likely to be gone by our 3rd round pick.

Three Starting Left Tackles - Armstead, Peat, Ramczyk - is one too many; we should've move one last offseason, must do it now...

Move the guy who needs constant adulation of how tough he is and keep the two soldiers who've come in and quietly done their job...

It's a lot easier to find right tackles and big guards, so I'd move Ramczyk to LT, trade Armstead and his cap number...

You'd have a helluva left side and when Peat's rookie deal comes due he can either move him or grab a left tackle...

Ramczyk is the Left Tackle we need...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Dalton Schultz is a very intriguing project from Stanford . He is an EXceptional blocker
Compares to Jason Witten.
He has good hands and catches the ball with his hands extended away from his body.
This is a player that IMHO will be a better pro than college football player
He wasn't use well in Stanford's offense.
Might be there when we pick in the third rd.

Sounds like Kamara doesn't it?

Here is a guy who played well as a sophomore but kind of disappeared last season. According to coach "O" Key took a "leave of absence" pre spring camp for personal reasons, then had surgery later in the season & missed a multiple games. He has all of the physical tools to transition at the elite level, however I question his motivation.

At pick #27? ... I think I'd pass.
