Going into week 3 Draft standings - #8 New Orleans Saints (0-2)

Round 1

Derrius Guice RB LSU 5106 222 4.45 #5 Jr

There arenít many running backs who feature his combination of speed, lateral quickness, balance and power. His tenacity and effort as a runner is also something you donít see every day. A back who can grind out the tough yards, attack the edge and is a threat to score every time he touches the ball. He could be the perfect fit for the saints offense. Guice is a willing pass blocker who doesnít hesitate to sacrifice his body.Even so he is one of the better blockers in the draft. LSU doesnít typically get their running backs involved in the passing game. But he looks good when he gets a chance, Itís difficult to find any part of Guiceís game thatís a glaring negative.
Mark Ingram replacement? Adrian Peterson replacement?

Round 2

Traded to SF

Round 3

Frank Ragnow C/OG,Arkansas 6052 319 5.14 #72 Sr

We all learned that we do not have a center grooming in the wings that can play OG as well. He ain't pretty but he has a solid all around skill set above anything we have now. Time to address this need. Over the past two seasons, he hasn't allowed a single sack while taking on excellent competition. As one can expect coming from Arkansas, Ragnow is also a tough run blocker. He is a technician who enters his senior year having made 26 straight starts. As a sophomore, Ragnow was the Razorbacks starter at right guard. He has the size to be a guard or center in the NFL.

Round 4

Tre Flowers SS/FS Oklahoma St. 6021 198 4.54 #31 198

He has experience at both free and strong safety. Tre displays a nice combination of man coverage skills and range to go along with physicality in run support. He is a strong open-field tackler who can also knock your helmet off if you donít keep your head on a swivel. He is a well-rounded, smart, rangy safety with excellent length who can also provide solid special teams coverage value. ball skills as well as ball production needs work.

Round 5

Spain Bentley OT/OG N Carolina 6056 300 5.04 #75 Sr

Ok we have all seen what the bench has to offer if called on to play. Nodda, zip, nothing, Spain has been a solid left tackle for North Carolina for the past two seasons. He was improved as a junior and did a good job of protecting quarterback Mitch Trubisky. On the edge, Spain has length and athleticism but needs to get some pro coaching and training. Upside pick well worth developing. Start dumping some dead wood.

Trade Miami for Stephone Anthony

Marcus Baugh TE Ohio State 6041 250 4.84 #85 rSr

Just a solid old school TE. Nothing Flashy here just a boring pick that fans will scratch their heads and asking "A blocking 'Y' tight end ?" Do they still exist in the NFL? This is were I think media scouts are over looking him. While he is not a polished blocker he is a strong blocker for sure. But what most are missing is his flashes of athleticism and good hands. He knows how to win with his size and a consistent ability to catch over the middle of the field. I think Baugh is a better TE than OSU has allowed him to be. I question the 4.84 time.

Round 6

Deion Harris CB North Dakota 6015 182 4.50 #19 Sr

Lets go for the annual injury pick here. out all of 2017 with a training camp injury. Nothing kills preseason hype like a season ending leg injury. He logged 36 tackles, 14 passes defended and five interceptions. That quintet of picks were tops in the Big Sky conference. Harris returned three of those picks for touchdowns -- most in the FCS last season. start dump some dead wood.

Round 7

B.J. Hill DT NC State 6031 300 4.94

Hill is a bull-rushing, double-team block eating, perpetrator at the line of scrimmage that constantly make plays on the ball. He is over shadowed by Kentavius Street and Bradley Chubb. Hill entered his senior campaign with (26) career starts. Still waiting on the media darling to move him up the draft boards. Maybe they are saving him till draft time?

Jalen Saunders to Patriots for 2018 conditional seventh round

Jaylen Samuels 5112 222 4.78 FB/HB/TE/WR

Samuels is a do-everything offensive weapon who has been described at various times as a TE, WR, FB or H-back. he already has 126 catches, 700 rushing yards and 31 total touchdowns. 4.78? Can not wait to see some one clock this kid. He has SP Toy written all over him. Would SP love a do it all HB/FB or what.
