re: Saints Mock Draft Simulation

Posted by Mpd31 on 4/21/24 at 10:41 am
I traded back to 19 and picked up 52 (2nd rounder). One of my favorites that I did. 19 - Taliese Fuaga 45 - Graham Barton 52 - Malachi Corley 168 - Tykee Smith 170 - Gabe Hall 175 - Xavier Thomas 190 - Isaac Guerrendo 199 - Joe Milton 239 - Tip Reiman ...
[quote]But for the rest of us it looks weak on both lines and screams grab some help. If a day one LT is needed and is there at 14 you grab it. If LT is not needed or not there but a RT is? You try to trade down and get a starter later in first.[/quote] The only bonafide day 1 starting LT is Alt ...
[quote] Other than the chiefs and niners, all the other teams- the OT is more important; theres an argument that Trent Williams is more important than Kittle.[/quote] Trent Williams is more important than Kittle. That’s a fact but Trent is also the best tackle in the league and the 9ers flooded w...
[quote]Yes to Bowers, no to Rome.[/quote] Curious on your reasoning against Rome...
[quote]You don't like that metric? Here's another. LINK[/quote] So based off your chart it is a bad investment to draft an offensive lineman in the first round. Yeah you really knocked it out of the park with that one....
[quote]For me, if it's close I'll go with the historical data that says OT is more likely to hit. Not to mention it's a much bigger positional need for the Saints.[/quote] Yeah if it was close but it isn’t . Rome and Bowers are both so much better prospects than any of the tackles not named Alt. ...
[quote]Do you gamble on Bowers being a spectacular TE for the Saints (because he'll be paid like one), or is it safer to bet one of the top 4 OT prospects will be a good to very good tackle for the next 5 years (and they'll instead be at the lower end of the pay scale for a good OT).[/quote] I th...
[quote]Actual facts are so annoying, right?[/quote] That is such a terrible metric to determine hits and misses. Based on that metric AJ Brown would have been a bust. Note I understand that AJB was a 2nd but he was a prime example that came straight to my head. Also it looks like the range is fr...

As long as he can grip inside pads on run blocks it is a non issue. ...

I like Fashanu the most after Alt. I wouldn’t mine Latham. Fautanu is an elite guard to me. He is super athletic but I think he will get beat alot on the edge against speed to power rushers. He just doesn’t look like a tackle out there and has to take more steps in pass pro which leaves him open. N...
[quote]For all his production, he has average to below average size and athleticism.[/quote] Goodness this is a terrible cringe statement. ...
[quote]Ultimately if it were ip to me I’d trade down, as there are too many needs. Everyone can agree to that I reckon[/quote] I disagree...
Same class with WRs. No tight ends taken. If you want to call jeudy bust then we are 50% (same as tackles) but that is hard to say given what he did in 2022. It is also worth mentioning that the 1st 2 picks of 2nd round were Tee and Pittman who are very good but I’m gonna stay fair and not factor th...
Here is some statistics for you. Just took the 2020 1st round tackle draft class that was supposedly stacked. Good test group considering you have four years of nfl play. That is 50 percent if I give Austin Jackson credit for breaking out. - Andrew Thomas (Stud) - Jedrick Wills (Trending towards...
[quote]Yes I get it every draft or prospect is different but in the end historically when these prospects play in their rookie year its really not.[/quote] Why are we so concerned over their rookie year? Like they are complete bust if they are not a stud year 1? [quote]The draft is a gamble ev...
[quote]No its not. But this organization is not drafting like they’re going to fire DA. I’m pretty sure DA will have a say in who he wants to draft.[/quote] It is loomis’s call. He should do what is best for the team not DA. This is also not a debate on what the saints will do but a debate on wha...
[quote]What you’re completely ignoring is historical data on how these similar prospects actually perform after they’re drafted and just assessing current prospect value.[/quote] You are not even looking at talent. You are just looking at statistics. You are making an assumption that the talent l...
[quote]What do you mean fold our organization? We wont be successful if thats what you’re asking. DA will get fired and Loomis may be on the hot seat for DA to begin with.[/quote] Is DA getting fired such a horrible thing? Even on a bad team good HC show you some promise. Loomis won’t be on the h...
