Interesting take by Mayock ...

The tight end the Saints draft might not be who you think: Mayock | NOLA.com

Looks like Shockey. Same exact size and high aggression after the catch. I could see it.

Lamar just needs to understand running should be his last option in the NFL. Can he make those throws consistently in the pocket? No clue here. If there is a coach who can polish (see Tony Romo) Lamar up, I think it's Sean P.

Side note - I didn't agree with Bill Polian & his analysis (thinks LJ should switch positions to WR & doesn't have the size to be effective etc). The kid won a Heisman as a QB & he's every bit of 6'3 .

My concern would be accuracy but the tools are definitely there.

He’s got the speed of Michael Vick, but I’d venture to say he’s better in the open field. He has the ball carrier vision of the elite running backs in the NFL. His elusiveness is something we haven’t really seen at that position outside of a Michael Vick...but he’s a much better passer. He has far better arm talent. Vick was a more powerful passer, but he lacked the touch and accuracy he needed like Kap. His first instinct isn’t to run. He just needs to be coached up on protections and making decisions at the line pre snap. Most QB’s need a touch up in that area. I’m just imaging the offense we’d run with him and Kamara...

Also, he completed 59% of his passes in college, which isn’t spectacular, but his adjusted completion percentage when accounting for throwing the ball away and spikes was over 70%.

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

So here’s a question just to pass the time...

Last year the Chiefs had the same pick as us (27) and they traded up to 10. It cost them #27, their 3rd rounder (#91) and their 2018 1st round pick.

Is there any player you would be willing to make the same trade up for if they were still on the board at #10? Bradley Chubb? Roquan Smith?

That is a fair question Chris.

For a fast, instinctive, game changing Day 1 starter at linebacker? Roquan checks a lot of boxes for me & I would do it. No on Chubb.

I think if the Saints front office is high on specific player, they could. Just last year the Saints called 20 NFL teams before they found a trading partner (Niners) in order to select the Alien aka Alvin Kamara.

But on the other hand, I believe Payton is still high on Anzalone. Somehow, we must get faster in the middle. Tampa, Carolina & the Dirty birds have those guys.

That's too much and it'll take the Chiefs five years to catch up from that overspend...

We should've leaped ahead with two No. 1's and something went down between Stephone Anthony and DA after year 1 and it cost us...
