We've addressed CB and a pass rushing OLB in free agency (1st rd pick talk)


Do we go after a NG, OT, or beast 3-4 DE in the first?

I think our best shots at those 3 positions are the following:

Star Lotulelei at Nose (he may drop due to health concerns)
Lane Johnson
Sheldon Richardson

Who should we take if all 3 are available?

What about this scenario:

Trade back. Take Margus Hunt as a DE in the first. Get a late second for moving down and take Jamie Collins. Use our 3rd on Kevin Reddick.

Vaccaro .

I know we seemed to be "set" at safety but Harper and Jenkins are huge liabilities and I don't see either if them suddenly "getting it"

I'm not so sure star would play NT. I could see him playing a lot of DE like Haloti does.

I could. Him, Jordan and Hicks could destroy the pocket.

Hankins? He has bust written all over him.

If we can't trade down and Chance Warmack is there I say take him. We don't have a need at OG, but if the best player in the draft is available at 15 you take him.

So we have no LB that has ever played a full season at 3-4 OLB and we're crossing that off the list for need? It would be no surprise if Mingo or Jones might be the BPA at #15 as well. Still no go? Afraid I still want more competition for such a vital component of 3-4 success. None of the Top 3 LTs will be available. Lotulelei is the premier non OLB talent that could demand must-pick status. If no Nmandi, why would we not think they have CB as a pressing need? Xavier Rhodes could justify a #15 and fits Ryan's CB design perfectly.

No one answered me, but I don't think Vaccaro is better than Eric Reid, and if Saints can find a way to get a second round pick they can get a top pick and Reid in early second.

I wouldn't take Vaccaro in the first like some on here are suggesting. I saw him run coverage drills in combines and looked awkard, Reid moves much better.

Also my obligatory do not draft an offensive lineman

Gotta get someone because Roman Harper will always be a liability in the pass. I'm not sayin early, but bring in someone that can cover.
