2019 Saints NFL Draft

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I like the pick. There wasn't much of a chance that Easton was the long term solution at center, McCoy could be. Easton is there to start the first couple games if this guy isn't ready game 1. That said, ...

That said, we're gonna miss that 2nd round pick next year.

@MikeTriplett
ESPN draft analysts Mel Kiper and Todd McShay both just said they're surprised Saints C Erik McCoy fell as far as he did. Saints obviously felt the same way. McShay and analyst Louis Riddick described him as a "plug-and-play starter

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Saw my share of Aggie football ... Erik is the real deal in the middle.

First round talent that fell to the second round. We could potentially have a Ryan Ramz type of impact player right out of the gate for 2019.

Not a sexy pick but games are won/lost in the trenches at this level.

Welcome to New Orleans Mr. Mckoy !

Also keep in mind armstead is frequently injured. Easton allows us to slide peat outside. Or maybe he’s just the best player on our board at a position of need too.

O-Line is never sexy but it builds championships. From what I've read people were surprised this guy fell this far? I'm down with it.

People always get mad about taking O-Linemen instead of average skill position players.

DK Metcalf STILL sitting out there and it’s almost the 3rd round.

From my perspective, O line wasn't an issue in the playoffs, players not getting open was the issue. Teams took Kamara and Thomas out of the game, then we had scrubs pretending to play football.
