Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Dorance Armstrong Jr. hyped into round 1? not there yet. i see to much of a passive nature when the play is away from him. motor/passion is in question for me. round 2 works for me right now

Jerome Baker OLB/ILB Ohio State 6005 225 4.62 #17 Jr
Baker is slightly undersized, but is another exceptional athlete with sideline to sideline speed. At ILB he fills holes in a flash. What I really like about Baker, he has the agility that makes it difficult to block him inside and yet he’s not afraid to engage blockers. He is well coached in hand usage to separate and explode out of the block.At OLB he can chase down ball carries with impressive suddenness, closing speed and range. He shows good awareness and instincts with solid ball-hawk skills against both the run and the pass. Versatility is his calling card. Need to bulk up a bit? But were does he end up at? ILB? WLB? Is he freakish enough to pull of SLB?

But like all the OSU players the have to be approached with caution. They turnover so much talent

Bradley Chubb drops to the 1/2 range of the draft? I will not be surprised. Their is very little hyped upside with him. Nothing is really flashy about him. I am not expecting a huge beauty pageant showing before the draft either. He is a boring solid all around good football player.

After yesterday's games, if the draft were held based on win-loss pct at the present, we would be drafting in the 26th hole...

I like how we've been signing, drafting linebackers that can play all three positions (e.g. Robertson, Klein, Stupar, Mauti, Anzalone) and Baker seems limited with that regard...

Right now, in my mind, he's back of the first, second round pick; I just might...

Don't know if you've been watching his games, but he reminds me of this kid from Purdue that the Chargers drafted...

I would. He's a better version of Colt McKoy. Super competitive, nice arm strength, elevates players around him, good feet & makes big plays in big moments.
