WLB (2) 56 - DeMario Davis, 42 - Chase Hansen (RFC 2021)

MLB (2) 55 - Kaden Elliss, 54 - Wynton McManis (RFC 2021)

SLB (2) 53 - Zach Baun, 50 - Andrew Dowell (RFC 2021), 59 - Marcus Willoughby (RFC 2021)

Just imagine this roster without Demario ... scary.

"Batman needs a Robin". Jabrill C, Jamin D, Zaven Collins perhaps? Don't know what to make of Baun. Coming out of last year's draft class, some scouts had him as a 1st round prospect. I thought he played well on special teams though ...

Thatís very true and scary. Also a hallmark of Paytonís tenure...failure to draft and develop LBs.

Zaven is a solid player, but I'm not sold on the value in the first round...

My uncle is a UT season ticket holder (lives in Broken Arrow / suburb of Tulsa) seems to think he's an impact player year 1. Stands out, makes plays and elevates others.

What if he and/or Jabrill slips to the second? I'd be happy with either.

Can see Sean jumping on Kyle Trask if he falls to 'em Round 2; that said, with the talent at LBer this draft, a great complement to Davis can be had Rounds 2 or 3...

Those Rd1 picks really need to go to those premiums pos such as QB, CB, WRx, OT1; rarely do the other positions impact a game that much, but they're rare exceptions...

Curious to see how this Saints Offensive Line does with Drew not under Center...

Hearing buzz that Chase Hansen is gonna make some noise in camp this year - just hope he's healthy...

Great on Chase but is there any "buzz" on Baun?

Last year I was really hoping Kaden Ellis would be that "gem" but after watching him in spot duty vs GB ... he obviously needs a lot of work.

After Demario, I see a bunch of 3rd tier players. Saints need to either bring in another experienced LB or draft one (Collins, Cox, Jamin) in 3 weeks.

I wonder if Mike Nolan has any desire to become a positional coach again?

All I know is that we need a speedy sideline to sideline LB'er with coverage skills to match up with Davis. I want the Kwon Alexander clone in this draft who can diagnose the plays and arrive with bad intentions.

We at least four good LBers on this roster to keep this defense in respectability; after DeMario, there's a lot of questions...
