Troy Dye - LB OREGON

When reading his report, the thing that sticks out is when they say "he's consistently good at defending on 3rd down".

Very good at blitzing, good in coverage & can close on the defender.

I really like Anzalone but can you count on him in November/December? Demario needs help.

Definitely with you and agree we need a LBer, but other than, possibly, maybe Murray of Oklahoma, I just don't see a first round LBer, with the exception of Simmons, who we won't even get to sniff...

Really like the OU kid but what worries me is that he doesn't shed tackles all that well. It's only gonna be harder to do at the elite level.

I won't be a bit surprised if the Saints 1st pick is either a GUARD or defensive tackle & with the abundance of WR's coming out ...

Maybe trade down and get an extra pick perhaps?

Collin Johnson - WR Texas

Big kid (6'5), red zone mis match but can he beat man coverage against the NFL's best corners? Like his fellow Alum & Southlake's finest (Jordan H.) ... not so sure he has the ability to separate.

You've likely read his scouting reports because that's the fatal flaw in his game, inability to get off the LOS and create separation...
