Picking 25th? Think we'll be further to the back - and I'm not buying that the Saints are taking a linebacker in Round 1 again under Sean Payton...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Prefer the cowboys pick

26.*DALLAS COWBOYSDI Vita Vea, Washington

Vea is more than just a space-eating nose tackle as he complements his elite run-stopping ability with the power to push the pocket better than anyone in the country. Vea moves well for 340-plus pounds and he has 61 career pressures on 480 rushes, showing that he can collapse the pocket in must-pass situations. Vea’s 88.9 overall grade currently ranks fourth among interior defensive linemen in the nation.

I've seen his name come up quite a bit on this board. Is this kid the truth? I'm not familiar with him nor have I seen any of Washington's games this year. Dominant NFL Pro prospect?

Last player with this much Pre draft hype at the position was Danny Shelton (same college as Vea).

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Actually I was expecting Vita to become much more than what I have seen. I have cooled on him a good bit especially with a proven player available at what should be a bargain price.

DaQuan Jones DT/DE Titians 6036 322 5.35 #90 R4 2014 - $3/4 M

Hot player right now for pick 25 might end up being

Carlton Davis CB Aurburn 6012 203 4.53 #6 Jr
Now he can play the slot. Talk about a jam. but off the field issues might take him off the board

I am not sold on a CB at 25 but DE

Lorenzo Carter DE/OLB Georgia 6045 243 4.76 Sr ?

Round 2/3 Slot?

Anthony Averett, CB/FS/WR Alabama 5115 185 4.43 #28 rSr

Later on

Jamal Peters*, CB, Mississippi State
Andre Chachere, CB, San Jose State
Jaylen Dunlap, CB, Illinois

Have caught my eye on day 3

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Is Will Grier worth a look?

I see he had a issue with a suspension for a over the counter illegal supplemt but back playing. Sounds like he isnt a deep thrower but looking good on the stat sheet this year

8 games, 344YPG, 28TD,9 INT just under 64% accuracy

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

I like the fact Will Grier runs a Pro-Style system and I would surprised to see him come out. OSU game exposed some flaws in his game. Lets see how he does the rest of the way. I like his game

I would tell him to stay if most of WVU stays in school and all the other QBs come out.

He plays well the rest of 2017 and all the hyped QBs come out, he should be a preseason round 1 hyped QB in 2018. That is a lot of money to risk coming out early in such a heavily QB hyped year.

The one thing that worries me is his lack of leg size as he has the body of a candied apple...

But he's definitely a dancing bear who could make Rankins a force inside...

Or designate him as a post June 1st cut & save 6.5M.

Absolutely no reason to retain his services next year at that price.
