2020 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I watched some tape on OL Mekhi Becton … he's nasty. A dawg. What are the chances he slips to us @ #24? Kind of like how Ramz fell to us. I'd like that pick but I'm dreaming right?...

Would have to trade Armstead almost immediately...

And then of course, that opens up money to extend Kamara...

...then again, you could let him walk and possibly pick up a compensatory 3rd round pick in 2022...

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

Based on voting, most tend to like Murray (OU) if he's there at 24.

IDK, Murray and Queen scare me in the 1st round. I'd rather go pass rusher but I understand the concern at LB not named Demario + we still have an open spot after AJ Klein signed elsewhere.

And pass on safety Delpit. He's not durable and isn't the best at tackling. We already have one of those who plays free safety.

The only guy I'd want in the first from LSU is Jefferson. He's already a polished route runner and will transition well to the NFL.

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

I have no idea how to post links but I saw a CBS Sports mock have us drafting Bowden J.R for our 3rd round pick. I said a few months ago I would jump all over him for a 3rd or below. People keep comparing him to Hill but that's way off because his throwing mechanics are terrible but in the open field dude is the real deal.

Re: 2020 NFL Draft: New Orleans Saints

Sean Payton has emphasized that this is a "rich WR draft" … which probably means we aren't selecting one at #24.

IMO that will be a "safe" (lineman) pick & we probably won't "reach" for a specific player. I still believe a stud LB will fall to the mid rounds.

Another stud lineman (see Ramz) would be great as well. Gotta shore up the O line once the playoffs start.

I like the idea of an o lineman with strength to start day one at #24.

OR

Someone who can affect the passer immediately! As in, our division QBs wince when the pick is announced.
