Yeah, but he has big bodies in front helping out. We could use another big body at DE, or NT. Can we do both?

This guy could be a sneaky good pick for us. He might actually be a better scheme fit than Rashaan Evans. Look, the fact of the matter is that there aren’t 32 first round prospects and picking later means we’ll likely have to reach a little bit.

What's his story Chris ? A lot of reports have him as a Day 2 & 3 draft selection.

With as many as 6-7 QB's getting taken before we draft, the #1-2 guys at their positions will still be there.
Other than running back, I won't be surprised at any pick we make.

Just starting to do more research. I’ve been hearing Brian Urlacher comparisons for a while now.

The voices inside the league comparing Vander Esch to former Mountain West star Brian Urlacher continue to get louder. He continues to be pegged as a three-down defender, and from everything I’m hearing he will test great at the combine.- DraftAnalyst.com

6’4”, 240 lbs and projected to run in the 4.6 range. Best traits are his high football IQ and non-stop motor.

Re: What mock drafts are saying Saints will do with No. 27 pick

Compiling average mock drafts among CBS/NFL Draft Scout, DraftTek, Kiper, McShay, Miller, Walter, PFF - I'm liking these guys at No. 27 if the draft were today...

2018 New Orleans Saints Draft Prospects (Updated 2018/02/14)

No. 27 (R1, 27) DT Taven Bryan, Florida; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 295 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) C Frank Ragnow, Arkansas; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 319 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) NT Vita Vea, Washington; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 332 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota St.; Height: 6’ 4”, Weight: 255 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) DE Sam Hubbard, Ohio St.; Height: 6’ 5”; Weight: 265 lbs.

Should LB Leighton Vander Esch, Boise St.; Height: 6’ 4”, Weight: 245 lbs. grade and interview well at the combine, pro day, and if you factor in his quick reads and instinctive play - then I'd very much be on-board with taking him at 27...

How do you lose with a Defensive Lineman named Bone Crusher?

Re: What mock drafts are saying Saints will do with No. 27 pick

Okay, so I'm updating my Wish List for No. 27 early before the Combine...

2018 New Orleans Saints Draft Prospects (Updated 2018/02/19)

No. 27 (R1, 27) LB Leighton Vander Esch, Boise St.; Height: 6’ 4”; Weight: 245 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) DT Taven Bryan, Florida; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 295 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) NT Vita Vea, Washington; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 332 lbs.
No. 27 (R1, 27) C Frank Ragnow, Arkansas; Height: 6' 5"; Weight: 319 lbs. No. 27 (R1, 27) TE Dallas Goedert, South Dakota St.; Height: 6’ 4”, Weight: 255 lbs.

Vander Esch now gets the nod over Bryan, but not by much; obvious need over upgrading Rankins is why I made the switch...
