Can Emmanuel Sanders be that dude this season? At time Ginn and Tre simply didn't want it. I forget which game it was where Smith took a shot & had his helmet knocked off ... gotta wonder if he's having second thoughts on battling defenders on those 50/50 opportunities? Alligator arms.

Less finesse and more physicality? Vikings really slapped us around up front.
We definitely sign a veteran No. 2 WR; for me, prefer burner on the outside to stretch the field that way Thomas and Cook can split the field with the intermediate stuff, Kamara carving underneath...

Jalen Reagor is the only WR I'd take on Day 2, even Day 1 as what he brings in talent could be utilized even with a limited repertoire as he adapts to the NFL game...

Really, REALLY, liking Denzel Mims' size, catch radius; can see MT opposite a WR-z burner, TE Cook on early downs, and bring along Mims as an WR-X, letting Thomas move inside on 3rd Downs where he's lethal...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Yep, Brandon Scherff or Joe Thuney, who incidentally was taken by the Patriots with the 3rd round pick we sent them, with a 4th, so we could take Vonn Bell in 2nd round of the 2016 draft...

I'd even sign both and move Warford, who's gotten soft and slow adjusting in space which is problematic in our blocking scheme; in fact I'd sign one of those two to replace Warford, transition from Easton/Clapp to a draft pick...

And I love to take Ben Bredeson in the second round if we went that route; he has the physicality NOW to bully and beat up on NFL vets like those Vikings, and the speed, head on the swivel to smack-down stunting DEs...

Johah Jackson OG The Ohio State
1st round

Not many videos showcasing their talents in the trenches.
Simpson is intriguing, but where was this play before? Is he gonna be the type that turns it on a few days before pay day?

He was interviewed here locally and they asked him what is his #1 Priority at the combine was and he stated .. "to run extremely fast". If he somehow clocks around 4.33 or better ... a team could bite on his speed alone Day 1.

In some ways, I see him as a KC CHIEF Mecole Hardman type player.

EXPLOSIVE.

The Saints met with Paxton Lynch too didn't they?

According to NFL Network, Paxton Lynch, who could potentially go in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, drew the New Orleans Saints to his pro day.

And if you remember, Brandin Cooks came out a force, as a rookie, because he had to run a simple route tree, very, very fast...

Guys like Willie Snead The IV was able to run underneath all day and #dodamage...

All day and every day on Brandon. This guy is an absolute mauler with the mindset to punish the guy in front of him for 4 quarters.

Peat got Brees injured vs the Rams, had a very poor showing vs Atlanta (a lot of sacks) & Vikings wildcard game. 1st rounder in name only.

Andrus can go. Brees needs an above average guard protecting him up the middle.
