I just donít know what weíre going to do at that other outside CB spot. Jenkins is great but age+money puts him on his way out. Obviously we need to pay Lattimore big money so we need a guy on a cheap rookie contract opposite him.

I havenít watched the two Georgia CBís yet but theyíre getting first round buzz. Have you watched them at all yet?

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

As a side note, I was just thinking about how teams meet with prospects who they have no chance of drafting just to do research for the future. We met with Jameis Winston before the Ď15 draft when he was obviously the #1 pick and somehow heís now going to be the successor to Drew Brees.

I'm only familiar with Tyson. Good in press coverage but average ball skills. I think he will go up the draft board because he has recovery speed Ö 4.4 guy. Scouts and coaches love speed.

IMO he is a Day 2 selection.

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

I keep coming back to DT Levi Onwuzurike. Heís such a perfect fit at 3-technique. Onyemata can be that rare 1-technique who pressures the QB. Onyemata is so freaking strong he has no problem splitting C-G double teams. Onwuzurike has such a deadly quick first step.

Food for thought. A great overview of how critical the draft is to a teamís immediate success:

Re: 2021 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

Since adding Ireland, the Saints have hit on nearly all their picks, even though they've overpaid for some - the case to continue to build through the draft...
