No one's writing off the season, we're just scouting and discussing how the talent could fit, improve the team...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

I am still banking on a pick at the worse 15 to 20 range.

Playoff teams 20 to 32

Stay healthy and keep gelling at this rate and 20 or higher is back on the table.

Kamara's continued, improved play and trading the 64th pick sure would minimize the pain of trading that second round pick...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

My early gut feeling is SP will go after the top toy in the draft.

Christian Kirk WR/KR/PR Texas A&M* 5106 200 4.39 #3 Jr

I like his college game more than Cooks college game. Its simple. KR/PR skill set Cooks never had and Kirk is much better at quick screens and reverses also. Which we all know is an SP favorite.

I would find it hard to pass on the most pro ready WR in the draft.

Calvin Ridley WR Alabama 6005 190 4.48

He is a plug n play #2 day 1

want a mid to late round (5/6) injury flyer in the slot?

Deebo Samuel WR/KR South Carolina 5110 208 4.50 #1 rJr

He is great working out of the slot. He is a solid route runner. He sets up DBs very nicely with smooth, quick and shifty breaks. Shame he broke his fibula. He was looking really good too. Good side he did it early in the year and should be ready to go for OTAs. He was looking like a day 1 starter. He is one of those sneaky quick pest in the slot that can drive teams nuts.

Few others since we have 2 - 5s and 2 - 6s
Michael Gallup WR, Colorado State, 6-1, 195, 4.52, Sr.
Cedric Wilson WR Boise St 6016 4.49 #1 Sr

I may not see the immediate needs in picking both

Calvin Ridley WR Alabama 6005 190 4.48 #3 Jr
Deebo Samuel WR/KR South Carolina 5110 208 4.50 #1 rJr

But I would have to admit I could see a great chance that the saints 3 WR set would be set for years to come.

Micheal Thomas WR OSU 6026 212 4.52 #3 rJr
Calvin Ridley WR Alabama 6005 190 4.48 #3 Jr
Deebo Samuel WR/KR South Carolina 5110 208 4.50 #1 rJr
Willie Snead WR/KR Ball St 5110 195 4.56 #3 Jr
Brandon Coleman WR Rutgers 6060 225 4.52 #17 rJr

I have not given up on
Corey Fuller WR Virgina Tech 6022 204 4.43 #83 rSr

I would almost be giddy and looking for a TE to finish it off this beast for Drew and SP

But my gut is telling me

Micheal Thomas WR OSU 6026 212 4.52 #3 rJr
Christian Kirk WR/KR/PR Texas A&M* 5106 200 4.39 #3 Jr

Don't see the need for more toys and don't think the Saints will go that way...

QB, DE, OG should be the top needs going into the draft...

The NFL is Chess not checkers. The successful organizations are always game planning, forecasting while accounting for the unknown.

The key to winning at this level is strategic forward thinking.

I really think we need a QB to but depending on where we'll be drafting the options might be slim.
