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.

You're basing that off warmacks zero total NFL snaps I guess?

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.
