re: Draft picks


Which players will they let go and what free agents will they sign? That happens first and will give insight into positional need. Several lengthy threads devoted to roster management and draft outlook to be found.

Really depends who we keep/let go.

OL needs some help.

Safety, DE & DT

re: Draft picks


I think Morgan is proving to the deep threat we thought he could. Really excited about his progress the last few weeks.
And yes there are already multiple threads, but whether its through FA or the draft the top 3 to me are:
OT
S/CB
Pass rusher


ETA: although I would love to see Tavon Austin in this offense

re: Draft picks


Saints have drafted Best Player Available for a while now. I suspect that will continue.

Areas of immediate need:
OT
OLB

Areas of need:
DT
DE
SS

Disagree with the DT need. I think Hicks and Bunkley shore that up. I wouldn't mind having Ellis back at a reduced rate if he continues to show some sort of production like he has the last few weeks. Then we have Tom Johnson who has played well and Tyrunn Walker on the PS.

Do agree about OLB though. I think Hawthrone shores up one side but I would love to get so done like Moseley bc I don't know how Vilma stays around much longer

Also anyone who's weary about the Badger, look at Janoris Jenkins the last 2 weeks. 2 pick 6s last week and a fumble return for TD this week. Out of the NCAA for a year and doing very well.

I don't see Ellis being back. That leaves us with Hicks and Bunckley (both of who I like) but I still think we need an upgrade at DT and DE.

Sheldon Richardson out of Missouri is a big possibility and i wouldn't mind grabbing Johnny Adams out of MSU in the 3rd

Disagree. We need to draft need on defense.


Even though SP and Loomis never do

re: Draft picks


nice review bait, they have certainly committed enough draft & free agent capital towards defense. The outcomes haven't been bad but certainly could be better. What is needed IMO is one surefire established playmaker, regardless of position. That's what Sharper was. Then the first draft pick should be a guy that comes in and is starter ready to make an impact on day one, not a developmental project or role player.
