KIPERS SAINTS PICKS

New Orleans Saints: Thomas Davis (jr.), S/OLB, Georgia
A college safety who projects to linebacker at the next level because of his size, Davis is a punishing tackler with big-play ability whose weakness in coverage will not be exposed at linebacker the way it could be at safety
40. New Orleans Saints (from Washington): Bryant McFadden, CB, Florida State
I have been screaming for years that the Saints need to draft a big-time corner and McFadden fits the bill. Perhaps the most aggressive corner in the draft, he also has good size.
New Orleans Saints: Adam Kieft, OT, Central Michigan
NOW READING THROUGH i see he's said some other interesting things:
Carlos Rogers, CB, Auburn
Rogers was a steady, reliable player at Auburn and was perhaps the Tigers' best defensive player last season. He has plenty of experience against top-shelf SEC competition and his aggressive attitude would make him a nice fit in Marvin Lewis' defensive scheme.

Ryan Moats (jr.), RB, Louisiana Tech
Moats is elusive and has tremendous ability to change direction, something that allowed him to put up excellent numbers in college.

Ray Willis, OT, Florida State
An absolute destroyer in the running game, Willis would really help emerging star Kevin Jones make a bigger mark

Anttaj Hawthorne, DT, Wisconsin
A 323-pound clogger in the middle who would boost a New York run defense that finished 14th in the NFL last season.

David Baas, OL, Michigan
Baas has a mean streak and banged heads with some of the best linemen in the nation during his four years at Michigan. He has a first-round grade because of his ability to play both center and guard.

Chris Spencer (jr.), OL, Mississippi
Another offensive lineman who trades on his versatility, Spencer can play any position along the line.

Marcus Johnson, OL, Mississippi
Yet another versatile lineman, Johnson can play guard or tackle and has the overall consistency NFL scouts look for.

Matt McCoy, LB, San Diego State
An under-the-radar prospect who was not at the combine, McCoy has great instincts and aggressiveness despite his lack of ideal size.
Gerald Sensabaugh, S, North Carolina
The 6-0½, 213-pounder has had some terrific workouts, running in the 4.45 range and showing a 46-inch vertical jump. He would he a big help for a Packers secondary that was weak at times last year. Interesting note: Sensabaugh played only one year at North Carolina after starting for three seasons at East Tennessee State before the school dropped its football program.

Barrett Ruud, LB, Nebraska
His speed and athletic ability made him Nebraska's all-time leading tackler. Ruud would help the Colts shore up a defense that has been their undoing in recent years

Alfred Fincher, LB, New England
One of the most productive linebackers in the nation, Fincher led the Big East with 140 total tackles last season and has good size and toughness.

Fireventuri, excellent comparison. Fat, slow, lazy, high, takes almost every play off.

I think C Rodgers will be a good corner, but i dont think he will be a shutdown guy!

Call me crazy but I have confidence in Fakhir this year. I would rather draft a corner laterthat can come in right away and cover the slot receiver and be developed over the next few seasons. But I agree, there are a lot of guys this year who are better served in a cover 2 scheme including Rodgers. I dont even think Rolle is an absolute shutdown corner.

Hey BR, i used to be a DJ guy and i still think he is worth trading up , but the more i hear about Thomas Davis at OLB i am leaning toward trading to #11 Dallas and getting Davis. I would say stay put at 16, but i think KC will grab Davis!!!!

Definitely echo the sentiments on Hawthorne. PASS PASS PASS. Do not take this guy, which means we probably will, way too early. Also Venturi, I believe Davis will be there at 16 without trading up. If he isn\'t, we take Rogers or Trav Johnson, or Jamall Brown. But I wouldn\'t trade up to Dallas and give up more picks to guarantee getting him.
