Re: Way too early 2024 mock draft

I have absolutely no clue what position they will target in rd 1, however a QB wonít be one of them.

T(both sides), DE, S, QB, RB, TE, LB.

We need a lot tbh.

Keep an eye on Cam Ward, QB, Washington State in the later rounds. I donít think the Saints are going to take a QB in the 1st. I think theyíll try to grab one of those LTís.

Re: Way too early 2024 mock draft

Si.com
14. New Orleans Saints
JC Latham | OT | Alabama


PFF
14. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS: ED JARED VERSE, FLORIDA STATE

Record: 9-8

Top-100 picks: 2 (1st, 2nd)

Player ADP (via MDS): 14.8
The Saints could be in for heavy turnover this offseason, but whether itís a little or a lot, they need to invest in a difference-making edge rusher. Verse is a powerful player who can win with speed-to-power from three-point and two-point stances. Heís not quite as big as Cam Jordan, but he brings a similar all-around ceiling.



Bleacher Report
14. New Orleans Saints: OT Tyler Guyton, Oklahoma
The New Orleans Saints are in position to address a spot on the roster they thought they had settled for years to come. Unfortunately, offensive tackle isn't as sturdy as they hoped it would be.

"The Saints have typically nailed their draft picks along the offensive line, but they're coming off a potential miss in 2022 first-round pick Trevor Penning," Thorn said. "Right tackle Ryan Ramczyk is one of the team's best players. Unfortunately, a lingering knee issue has put his career in jeopardy, which makes the tackle position a sudden and immediate priority to address.

"Oklahoma's Tyler Guyton has elite size (6'7", 328 lbs) and athletic ability, but he's similarly raw, so this would carry some risk. The bet is on upside, which Guyton absolutely provides with better feet and more natural movement skills in pass protection than Penning. That could provide enough comfort for the team to come back to the tackle table so quickly."

Expectations for an impressive predraft process are baked into Guyton's rise here. He's a work in progress, but he has the necessary traits to become an elite blocker down the road.



CBS

Brock Bowers TE
GEORGIA ē JR ē 6'4" / 240 LBS

New Orleans

The Saints could go wide receiver here, too, but Brock Bowers feels like stealing at No. 14; I'll repeat what I wrote back on Dec. 4, in my last mock draft: "In the last 20 years, 19 tight ends have gone in the first round. Five of those were selected in the top 10 (Eric Ebron, 10th overall in 2014; T.J. Hockenson, 8th overall in 2019; Kellen Winslow II and Vernon Davis, 6th overall in 2004 and 2006; and Kyle Pitts, 4th overall in 2021). The other 14 were drafted between No. 19 and No. 32. I mention this because I think Brock Bowers is special. In fact, he's the No. 5 player on my big board. And maybe he's different; he'll be the tight end worth taking in the top 10." For now, though, I have him going in the middle of the round to New Orleans.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Draft players who have mental fortitude and don't need to be coached up. They hopefully will be impervious to DA's nonsense.

Re: Way too early 2024 mock draft

Traded down: 36 NT Sweat 45. Edge Tuimoloau 61. OG haynes 65. FS Bishop 80. OT Guyton 84. LB Eichenberg 115. RB Allen 135. LB Speights 186. QB Milton

Saints need a legit NT. Jordan and Smith aren't going to play forever. They need a bell cow of a RB. Allen is only 20. Milton has a rare arm and behind Carr he could sit a couple years. OT and OG needs upgrading and to be cheaper a couple years.

Re: Way too early 2024 mock draft

I just hope we move in a different direction on who is signing off on these DEs on draft night.

Davenport, Payton Turner, Foskey (remember him?) ... suspect picks.
