Based upon nothing but gut feeling, I predict they go OL with first round pick and work out deals with Ram and Latt.

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

If you go with a standout 3-tech to replace likely departing FA Sheldon Rankins, Onyemata gives you a more dynamic NT, releasing Brown saves nearly $5M in cap space...

That gets you to friendlier cap numbers spent on your interior defensive line...

I hope the Saints extend Malcolm Brown. An above average player in New Orleans and he's in his prime.

Our D line regressed (run support) while he was out due to injury. He's an important piece and I hope Loomis and co can find a way to keep him.

One of the reasons Belichick had issues with Brown was complete game availability or conditioning and his lack of production (Richard Seymour really spoiled 'em)...

Don't disagree Brown at NT allowed Onyemata to rip & go, but we must have more inside pressure to kill a couple more drives per game; Onyemata could be that NT, find the DT Rankins, like Ellis, was expected to be...

I'm hopeful Sheldon returns (Free Agent) as well. With prior injuries over his young career, he could come at an affordable rate for us.

At worst, he's solid depth.

Thoughts ?

Rankins has done a few interviews and said teams need to focus on his 2018 film to see the Rankins there getting; if that's the case, should he only be signed for one year? what about the other seasons?
