Collin is certainly a playmaker, but his injury situation makes me nervous. He almost literally missed every other game this last season. He is also strictly an outside receiver; I don't think I ever remember seeing him lineup in the slot at all at UT.

Drafting those injured players have been our MO lately and it hasn't really worked out well for us. We need to go with proven production and stop reaching and hoping that a player will get better in the pros. Taysom Hill is totally different.

This was an interesting "mock" for the Saints @ #24.

One thinks we'll pick a WR, the other a QB and the last a CB.

If Brees plays this season, we should not spend a Day 1 or Day 2 pick on a quarterback when we need a LG, WRz, TE, CB2, RG, LT2...

If for whatever reason the best player on your board @ #24 is a QB, you don't think Sean P & co aren't taking him?

Waiting in round 3, 4 ... meh. Not much in this 2020 QB class. It's time to draft a QB in the earlier rounds and develop him.

Josh Uche - DE

Really helped his stock by having a sound Senior bowl.

Meanwhile Davenport has yet to prove that he can stay healthy. We need more pass rushers & guys with the ability to set the edge.

Unfortunately a good point Major raises in that Davenport (and Rankins) have not shown to be reliably available with their respective health concerns...

While Hendrickson did advance in development despite an injury on a horrendous underpenalized clothesline to the neck, TRex hasn't shown to be an every-down defensive end...

But Josh Uche would only be 6' 1" defensive end which is very problematic while conversely, Davenport, when somewhat healthy, showed that length on the weakside was particularly advantageous...
