Re: New Orleans Saints Draft Round 1 - 2024

I'm not mad at this pick. The guy is a monster run blocker. I don't see a lot of pass protection in his highlight package. Depending on how things shake out on the O line, can you imagine having him as tackle and bringing Penning in as the TE or extra blocker in short situations?

Blake Fisher - Notre Dame
OT

Huge guy, good handwork & very athletic.
Not as technically sound as Joe Alt but who is?

Can play guard or tackle.

Good option on Day 2

* Edit - Patrick Paul is still out there as well.

I could do another OL. Kris Jenkins intrigues me on the DL.

It looks like we found our replacement for Cam's energy and leadership. He seems like the kind of man that people gravitate to and want to be around.

We got a Polynesian to pound the opposition. Sweet!

DeJean at Safety is an A+ move. Not an elite man defender as a corner, but an elite man defender for a safety. Great in zone. Athletic. Great ball skills. Speed is excellent. Definitely wouldn’t mind.

Truth be told though…I think we need another OT. They won’t do that, but I think I would.

Kansas St Guard in Round 2 would be nice. Or the Texans NT.

I think if we were willing to move up in the first to take Penix, then we would have had an offensive lineman there we liked in the second round. So I think it's very much still on the board.

Give me Corley or Sweat

Austin Booker DE, Kansas

Christian Hayes G, UConn
Let's go back to the O line and address our biggest weakness again with two rounds back to back

I love this team. Love the pick. They need to find a real dude to do the talking. Let Allen do the scheming and gameplay and have someone else do the talking.
I mute the TV when DA is speaking.

Re: New Orleans Saints Draft Round 1 - 2024

I think we'll use a 5th on a developmental LT.
Didn't we get Nicks and Bushrod in the 5th?
