The left tackle position ranks as the New Orleans Saints' most pressing need, both short term and long term. But it doesn't look like there will be a great fit for them with the 15th pick in Round 1. The three top offensive tackle prospects - Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, Central Michigan's Eric Fisher and Oklahoma's Lane Johnson - are all projected to be gone among the top 10 picks.

Alabama's D.J. Fluker may be worthy of a top-15 pick, but he is more of a right tackle prospect with his size and power. Florida State's Menelik Watson has great athletic upside and could potentially make the switch from right tackle to left tackle.
