WR - JJ Arcega-Whiteside 6-2 225 40-4.49
Jose Joaquin Arcega-Whiteside was born in Spain to two professional basketball players. Not surprisingly given his athletic genes, he was also all-state in basketball and finished in fourth place in the 100 meters at the 2014 state track meet.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

I'm really not crazy about taking a WR in the second round as deep and talented as this draft is at that position...

Defensive End, Corner back, Starting Guard, Safety are what I'm looking to add...

And I don't trust a guy with two last names...

Iím with you. Everybody knows we need another reliable target opposite Michael Thomas because last season we had rookies pushed into a bigger role than they could handle. The thing is- how does relying on another rookie WR this year fix that problem?

Iím looking for D-Line or O-Line today. Michael Deiter would be a dream pick. Any D-Lineman would be fine... Not too picky about that.

This guy has hands like Michael Thomas. I just was giving a WR player to consider. I know we only have a 2% chance of drafting him.

Drafting a safety in the 2nd round or simply drafting one overall?

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Did anybody watch that video above of Jose Joaquin Arcega-Whiteside catching the ball? He looks like Michael Thomas and Jimmy Graham.

As much as I agree that those positions need addressing, the team failed last year because the offense couldn't convert in times of need. As soon as teams started taking Kamara and Thomas out of the game, we relied on guys like Kirkwood, Tre'Quan, Carr, Lewis and Arnold - who all proved that they could not compete come playoff time.

Only guy that helped us was Ted Ginn, but those guys had a ton of opportunities to be "the" guy in crunch time and failed.

That's why I think another WR is very high on our list of needs.

Yes. And there's something to be said about football players who were basketball players as well.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

OK here's my updated first pick for the Saints:

Option 1

We pick Parris Campbell, WR, Ohio State

Option 2

We pick Irv Smith, TE, Alabama

and no trade up. It would cost us too much and the picks will be worth a lot more to us in 2020.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Yeah I've ready good things about J.J.

Any player with complete body control to catch & when the ball is in the air, they win most of the battles.

Who in their right mind wouldn't want 2 MICHAEL THOMAS (JJ looks the part) on the same team at WR come playoff time???

Circle back to the NFCCG ... once Talib put the clamps on MT, it was over. He had no help to pick up the slack & keep the chains moving.
