What are the Saints greatest needs in the draft?



LT/RT?

That would be my guess. Waaaay too many sacks this season.

Thoughts?

For me:
1. C/RT
2. CB
3. WR
4. LB Depth
5. DE

And we can address that anyway we'd like

Armstead is playing pretty well. I honestly think right now that center might even be more important than tackle. DLP has been abused most of the year.

I'm not going to say what order we should draft, but I think Oline and DB are most pressing. It seems like we can't go a game without a DB having to come out

Free agency


I think a CB/LB/WR/S would be clutch in the draft

We've got those. We need someone who can blow the top off of defenses. We were much faster when we had Devery and Reggie-teams had to respect our speed. Not so much now.

Joe Morgan is coming back. Kenny Stills is getting better.

However, Colston is getting older. You can't depend on Lance Moore so much anymore. And Nick Toon looks like a wasted pick.

Rds 1 and 2 (either/or)
Stud WR
Ball hawk / cover CB

Rds 3-6
Then OT, C, S
Then another OT or WR

Glad to see you put ILB in there. Lofton is a thumper and smart, but he does not have the range. gets beat in coverage and often times cant get to the edge on stretch plays. he has been a hinderance this season.

I say:

CB (Greer is too much uncertainty)
ILB (need speed badly here)
C (DLP is garbage)
WR (too many role players; no all-purpose guy)
OLB (Juniah needs help)

Meach is fast, but he is a one-trick-pony. If all you can do is run deep, then you are easily taken out of the game. I do agree with what you are saying, but we need a WR that is fast AND can run all the routes.

Getting a Kenny Vaccaro clone, a DT as dominant as Hicks or a DE on Jordan's level in the first round would be swell. The Saints need more quality depth on the defensive side of the ball and a decent center to push/replace DLP, IMO, and you can work on those things in rounds 2-7 depending on what's available.

I like Morgan but I think/hope we can do better. We also need more than 1 speed guy-we lost Morgan this year and other than a below average Meach really don't have a burner.

I love Stills and he's definitely been good with the deep balls; I just don't know he has elite speed that forces defenses to adjust to him.

Bottom line is I like speed on the offense at all the skill positions.

re: What are the Saints greatest needs in the draft?


let's call it offseason needs, free agency will play out first which can dramatically alter the draft needs

Center- a definite step backwards for dlP. It might have been Kromer's touch that hid his deficiencies better. None deserve first round consideration this year. You can still pickup a 10yr starter at C in the 2nd or 3rd Rd tho. Swanson from Arkansas and Larsen Utah St are on the top of most boards.

The rest are still fluid IMO. It's not unreasonable that they could determine if Armstead is the guy or at least ready to grow into the spot. He's an incredible athlete that just needs honing coming out of Pine Bluff. I expect Strief back as a UFA.

Safety is a complete unknown besides Vaccaro. I could see both Harper & Jenkins gone, back, or a combination. That will go a long ways in how the need ranks.

I would like a more dynamic ILB but looking at Hawthorne & Lofton's contracts we're committed to them for at least another coupla yrs.

I'm not on the 1st or 2nd Rd WR bandwagon. Stills led the frickin NFL in YPC. No reason why his numbers couldn't double next year. That would be 64rec 1282yds 10 TDs. Colston may be approaching decline but with him also we're basically stuck contractually until 2016. Lance is on my endangered list- 37 catches, turning age 31. Will cost $2.3mil to cut and save almost $3mil of cap. Plenty of attractive WRs 3rd Rd & later

Looks like CB could be the best fit for value & need in the 1st Rd. If Greer is done it skyrockets as need. I have Dennard and Verrett gone by the Saints pick. Gilbert OKSt & Ifo Ekpre-Olomu Oregon look like the best possibilities.
