Small sample size but I like Trey as a NFL pro prospect a lot. Probably more so than Wentz coming out.

Anticipates well, lots of velocity on his throws but he can throw accurately while under serious duress. A term I like to call "staring down the barrel". He's only 20 years old !

There is the element of the "it" factor with Trey. Super athletic, tough and a play maker. I think he'll have a lot of success at the next level.

I just don't believe the Saints would give Trey a 1st round "look" due to covid season. Hopefully he stays out of the NFC South (Carolina).

Stranger things have happened though.

I'd rather go defense (CB, LB) or O lineman.

That's just me

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

You guys are obviously more informed about college players than I am (thanks for the info you pass). I was wondering, especially as it relates to Mac, the extremely different conditions that they played in this year adds an extra level of uncertainty while evaluating, doesn’t it. Playing at LSU or at Florida etc without the normal pressure having fans in the stands makes is tougher to evaluate a players poise.

Daviyon Nixon - DT IOWA

Rankins (Free Agent) replacement perhaps? Nixon is a disruptor.

The DT position is getting a lot of attention from the Saints so far in this pre-draft process. It makes sense too... when you’re paying big money to Onyemata (deservedly) you need to supplement the position with cheaper rookie contracts.

Saints continue scouring the D-Line class.

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

We nailed the 2017 draft. The rest of our drafts have been both small and not nearly as productive. Almost everyone we drafted is playing on another team. We have had limited holes recently and quality over quantity has been our MO. Anzalone and Peat are not busts but we need better.

We must absolutely nail this draft. No more drafting to move a player to a new position in the pros. Draft one that doesn't need as much training. Baun currently looks like a waste. He may improve but we can't count on that. Ireland and the draft department need to rethink their drafting process and get back to what they did in 2017.

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

When you read a moch draft and think someone really doesn't have a clue what they are on about




The Saints need to continue to improve their secondary, as their pass defense was a weakness in 2019


Top 5 for yards against
1st interceptions
2 for pass completion


Now thats not to say a Safety might be the pick due to probably losing Marcus Williams but come on now, if you going to write this stuff for a living do your homework
