Send everyone to the combine. We have to get this right!

I wonder if we'll hire anybody there this year?

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft Prospects (NFL Combine)

Interesting stuff from a great draft site:

https://thedraftnetwork.com/2019/02/...ds-mock-draft/

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS PRE-COMBINE 7-ROUNDS MOCK DRAFT

Round 2, Pick No. 62: Dawson Knox, TE, Ole Miss

Though the Saints donít have many needs on their roster, tight end is likely that you would call their top need. They havenít had an impact player at that position since Jimmy Grahamís golden days. If quarterback Drew Brees wants to play another year or two with the success heís used to, he could use an offensive weapon from the tight end position. Dawson Knox was very underutilized during his time at Ole Miss, but the talent is evident when you watch the tape. Lack of production ó via lack of targets and emphasis ó is why Knox would be picked this late, but he would be a perfect fit.

Round 5, Pick No. 158: Benny Snell, RB, Kentucky

Running back Mark Ingram is set to hit free agency, and with Alvin Kamara already on the roster, paying a pretty penny for a running back just to be in a committee wouldnít be the most wise decision they could make. If they donít, drafting a player like Benny Snell could be a big hit. Snellís talent, style of running and personality would fit great in New Orleans and with Kamara.

Round 6, Pick No. 164: Deshaun Davis, LB, Auburn

I like the idea of this pick because Davis is a smart, instinctual linebacker, albeit limited athletically, who would be a great player to add to a linebacker room. It works out for the Saints specifically because they already have Alex Anzalone to play full time in the middle, and can rotate Davis in at a variety of different spots. Analone is also injury prone, so having Davis as a backup play would be good for them.

Round 6, Pick No. 190: Tim Harris, CB, Virginia

The Saints are pretty set at defensive back when it comes to their starters. Players like Marshon Lattimore, Eli Apple, Marcus Williams, Von Bell and Kurt Coleman have put together a strong defensive back unit. But thatís not to say they couldnít improve on some depth. Harris is a taller, longer cornerback who fits the Saintsí defensive back type. Harris played great down the stretch during East-West Shrine Week.

Round 7, Pick No. 222: Jalen Hurd, WR, Baylor

The Saints are pretty set a wide receiver with guys like Michael Thomas and TreíQuan Smith at the top, plus Cam Meredith, Ted Ginn and even Dez Bryant potentially all on the roster as well. But Bryant is a free agent, and though he said he would like to be back, the Saints donít know what his availability is going to be like with his health. Hurd, as a big, strong receiver, could be a nice red zone piece they donít have right now.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft Prospects (NFL Combine)

This will be a deep draft for tight ends, so I don't see us going Dawson Knox, Ole Miss or Kaden Smith, Stanford, at the end of Round 2...

The better value will likely be an offensive lineman, strong safety, or a big Nose Tackle; maybe a running back if he falls...

We won't draft a TE. Ingram will be back. "Kurt Coleman part of a strong unit"? Huh? Saints are pretty set at WR? HUH??

As far as NT goes there are 2 that I like one is:
Khalen Saunders NT Western Illinois 6'2 310 lbs. projection is round 2-3, kind of fits where we pick
Daylon Mack NT Texas A&M 6'1 335 projected round 4-6.
As far as a TE goes I would take a flyer out on Donald Parham TE Stetson 6'8 243 projected round 4-6.
I'm still wanting a OLB to groom and could contribute Vosean Joseph OLB Florida 6'1 227 projected round 3-4.

I'm with you there.

Meredith is still an unknown, Ginn is a year older, Tre & Kirkwood are inexperienced 2nd year guys & no guarantees Dez returns to NO & performs at a high level.

We are hardly "set" at the WR position.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft Prospects (NFL Combine)

If Ingram isn't back, I like Snell pick. It's a good fit. I also like Hurd's versatility and he could be another swiss army knife for our offense.

That's a solid mock draft.
