2019 Saints NFL Draft Prospects (NFL Combine)

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf at 6' 4", 224 lbs. (1.9% body fat) is an absolute unit! Twitter Sadly his route running and hands are 3rd round at best - but someone will reach for him in the first round......

Know it's early, but Give Chucky more credit than that, this isn't Al's Raiders any more; Metcalf is still being rated a Top 20 pick in many scouts minds...

So glad Sean traded nearly everything away so we wouldn't have to worry about being tempted to draft guys like this...

Precisely.

Having speed is great and all but you must have mastery of the route tree at this level of football.

I'd argue his former team mate at Ole Miss Demarkus Lodge (was impressive here in Dallas/Cedar Hill High) is a more proven/polished route runner.

I'll take THE Ohio State Parris Campbell off my WR list ...

Ran a 4.31 40.

To put that into perspective .. Tyreek "Cheetah" Hill ran 4.28 at his Pro Day.

I think one guy we could take a flier on in the late rounds as a possible successor to Brees is Trace McSorley. He is very passionate and seems like a good leader. He has enough physical tools to work with and could be very coach-able. Just have a good gut feeling on him.

I love the idea of picking Benny Snell, I can’t lie.
