Chris -

In post 80, you mentioned the corner back Elijah Molden (second round) possibly to the Saints. He has a lot of ability & turns his head around a lot in pass coverage. He played a lot in the slot last season. Replacement for PRob perhaps?

Hes fantastic and really is the prototype nickel CB. Hes physical and plays so well in traffic with excellent awareness.

We have CJGJ in that role though. I think we look for more of an outside CB.

But, can he stay healthy? Always seemed to be hurt vs the big competition...

All need filled.

Cant rely on Davenport getting through a season.
Unlikely Williams is back
Rankins a possibility if he doesn't get the offers he wants

And plenty of questions at CB with Lattimore deal and Jack rabbits cap.
Lattimore is going to want to be the best paid CB in football. Not sure I'd make him that to be honest. On his day he is as good as anyone but too often he plays up or down to the level of his opponent.
I'd have QB and OL right there at the top with LCB...

Day 2 candidate? You can never have enough big nasties in the trenches. See Bucs. Some were wondering why Cam Jordan had little success getting to Brady well they did draft Tristan Wirfs. Immediate impact player on the O line.

I'd be really surprised he's still on the board Day 2; I'd have to consider trading a future 1 for the top of R2 to get him...

Wirfs was good, but Cam isn't the player he was a couple of years ago - turning 30 is a ***** for NFL Players that are not QBs with a good line...

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

Some scouts think he could drop in the draft due to his injury history.

We shall see. Terrific talent though.
