Something to keep in mind about addressing our O-LineÖ Sean Payton doesnít draft guards. Our MO has always been to draft OTís and move them to guard; for better or worse.

Or draft a center to move to guard.

Itís an approach that makes sense. With OTís you have highly athletic guys and with centers you have highly intelligent guys.

This is true.

Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks worked out pretty good; Sean actually disclosed in an interview a few years ago about his "certain types"; and he prefers tall linemen...

In my mock, Tennessee G Cade Mays has played a number of positions which is something Sean covets...

Ole Miss OT Nick Broeker is very athletic, supposedly runs a sub 5.0 40 and will just need to work on functional strength his first season...

Yep Nicks and Evans are the best examples of the left tackle moving to guard method.

Cade Mays would be an excellent choice in the 3rd or 4th round. His versatility fits what we look for:

35 career starts with 19 at right guard, 12 at right tackle, two at left guard and two at left tackle.

Re: 2022 NFL Draft: Draft Prospects, Scouting

Battle has been my backup pick in mocks if Carson Strong didn't fall to Round 2...

If he continues to develop, he should track as a Round 1 pick next year...

If replacing Armstead wasn't such a priority (have been using strategy of Penning to RT, Ramczyk to LT), I'd move around for a QB in round 1 if warranted...

Reminder, Ramczyk has a lot of bonus language in his contract with him as the Left Tackle, that's why I believe Armstead's departure is so imminent...

And I've never been a fan of Mr. Glass (Armstead) and his unavailability; yes he's had moments, but he's always ducking out of games...

Will have to recalculate what he made based on games actually played...

As often as he's been injured, don't think teams will be unloading the Brinks truck in Free Agency.

It wouldn't surprise me one bit to see Armstead in a Saints jersey for 2022.
