Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Anyone familiar with this kid from La. Tech?

https://saintswire.usatoday.com/2019...rkout-pro-day/

The New Orleans Saints will meet up with Louisiana Tech defensive end Jaylon Ferguson and put him through a workout ahead of the 2019 NFL Draft, per Sean Fazende of FOX8 New Orleans. Ferguson has been a force for the Bulldogs ever since he stepped on campus in 2015, eventually breaking Terrell Suggs’ NCAA record with 45 sacks in his four-year career. Ferguson was also wildly productive against the run, recording 67.5 tackles for loss of yards.

Yes. In several articles recently about Top 5 / 10 players likely to fall, he's in nearly every one I've read or mentioned; don't know if that is opposition draft gamemanship...

Most of the recent scouting reports have highlighted his poor bend/flexibility about the edge; some have mentioned a Freshman year arrest for assault that was "negotiated" down to a misdemeanor...

In spite of all that, he's the NCAA FBS Career Leader in Sacks (45). I find he's a lot like Mario Edwards, a tweener between a SDE and a DT3; he may, may fall out of the first round, but is likely gone in the Top 50...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Abysmal workout numbers for Jaylon Ferguson have sunk his draft stock. An 8.08 three cone time and 5.12 short shuttle are tremendously bad.

Yeah, but I tell you what Chris, you gotta go to the film and the film and face to face interviews should be the most weighted factors; Ferguson lost face the way he was embarrassed by the NFL at the Combine...

Have had a man-crush for BC's DE Zach Allen since 2017 when watching out for Harold Landry; Allen was the one bullying, bullying, pro prospects across the line from him; but Allen's Sparq is not impressive...

When you watch film of Allen's vs opponents, he's the guy I want with me on the Suicide Squad vs evil sorceress and her big, bad MoFo Brother; I'd love for him to be our pick at 62 and park him behind Cam Jordan...

Thing that bothers me about Ferguson was the same that turned me off on Davenport - Senior Bowl performance; Ferguson was "handled" facing better talent like Davenport got thrown like a toy by Alex Cappa...

That kinda thing just stays in the loop for me...

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Not up on draft prospects this year

This is interesting though
Sounds a good fit

McShay’s pick: OL Elgton Jenkins, Mississippi State

It took a while, but New Orleans is finally on the board. The Saints got Nick Easton from the Vikings, but he could also play guard. Jenkins also has versatility and is strong against the pass rush.

Jenkins comes in on the smaller side for an offensive lineman at 6-foot-4, 310 pounds, but there’s no cause for concern. He’s a well-rounded athlete with some real areas of strength, firing off the snap and moving well in short areas. Jenkins finished his college career with 26 consecutive starts at center for the Bulldogs; before that, he moved around as the team needed, starting at both tackle spots and left guard. He’d be a great addition.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
