See last year's draft at WR (dropped to early 2nd rd) ... Niner Deebo Samuel he hurt us badly as a rookie.

Don't over think some of these draft selections.

Also AJ Brown and DK Metcalf in last year's 2nd round. And this year it appears is a deeper draft at WR and HB. Will teams continue to generally shy away from picking those positions in the first round? Something's gotta give or we need to take those steals!

Leave Erik where he's at.
Agreed!

9ers have Kendrick Bourne, Sanders, Samuel and Kittle who can all get open and catch passes.

We need to move on from Trequan, he makes Ginn look good the way he drops passes.

To make matters worse Bourne was a undrafted WR moving the chains today.

Geesh.

Burrow deserves to be a day 1 starter in the NFL, the championship game certainly cinched that. He will need to throw the ball away more at the pro level with the speed of defenses and make a few other adjustments, but he's a gamer and shouldn't take long to transition.

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: Saints Prospects

Chase & Jefferson are big time NFL prospects. A lot of those catches last night were contested & well defended by Clemson.

The LSU cornerback Stingley is only a freshman but they rarely challenged him on those boundaries last night. You can tell he played some WR in High school because he's always turning his head, tracking the ball.

In two years, he'll be a top NFL corner back prospect.

Maybe Joe Brady can somehow influence Sean Payton & his scouts to really start looking at LSU players. I don't mean just in the lower rounds either.

I saw a hand full of kids who could help us on Sundays.

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: Saints Prospects

I'm getting on board to the OG train this draft. We can get a pretty good one where we're picking this year. Although, I'm a firm believer in BPA in the 1st regardless of position.

My wish list in 1st or 2nd Rd: Kindley, UGA...Lemieux, Oregon...Biadasz, Wisconsin (versatile enough for guard plus could spell McCoy if needed)

I also like this deep WR crop in the mid rounds: Mims, Baylor...Vasher, TT...Hill, Ohio St.
