WR Trey Quinn, SMU
Height: 6-0 Weight: 202 lbs

Some of the best hands in the draft with plus-route running and good toughness in traffic. May still be on the board in the 4th round.

Great Point - Conversely though, Saints may be wary of going down that road again, though I believe Snead has a better handle on his situation...

Boy, would have many people forgotten Snead's bad season had he completed that screen option pass to Kamara vs the Vikes - could you imagine?

That seems to be the early consensus on where he'll be taken - and I wouldn't have a problem with it...

Though I think the priority will be a taller target with a big catch radius for those third down conversion attempts and red zone scoring tries...

I'd love to see us get TE Dallas Goedert and WR Trey Quinn - but I know we've really got to get better in our front seven and some OL depth...

So far, the consensus I'm reading from y'all is y'all like to see either Jarvis Landry or Allen Robinson with no faith in Willie Snead to recover as a slot receiver?

Yep a big-bodied, sure-handed third down/red zone reliable target to take some heat off of @CantGuardMike...

Keep Slick Willie, but look for more talent. Landry is too much $, more than likely.
