Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

I keep forgetting Year 2 of TQ Smith's development. WRs don't usually start 'getting it' right off the bat. Can't Guard Mike & Colston are the exception...beasts YR 1 and we are spoiled.

TQ will get better this year & hopefully pushes for that WR2 spot. Dude can flat out fly...game changer with a 3rd RD pick.

And I'm not sold on Meridith. He can beat soft zone but 1-on-1 no. TQ can plus bust the top off coverage. I think we did very well even without grabbing a WR.

+1 Agreed.

I still have a lot of faith in Meredith this season. He was a good player for the Bears and if he can round back into form, we'll have a great duo at WR as Mike is just a beast of a player. Tre and Kirkwood will continue to grow and improve as well.

Throw in Kamara's pass catching ability + we have added Cook at TE to the equation. That's a tall order to defend.

Had a solid pro day (IIRC Saints scouts were there), has decent 40 speed for a OLB, coaches calls him a "leader", good production in college, versatile (can play offense and defense) ...

So what's the knock on him? Scouts sleeping on the Big Sky Conference? Can he give you a Vander Esch type "effort"?

He canít catch unless a DB just straight up blows coverage and he goes uncovered. He doesnít win battles for the ball and has injury history. They may put him in a snap or two every now and then but heís just not much better than a backup.
