NFC South Draft Talk -- Mike Detillier Posted By: Dan in Lafayette Posted On Yesterday 11:51 AM


NFC South Draft Talk

By Mike Detillier -- Houma Courier

I spoke to an AFC general manager last week and asked him to give me the "nightmare" draft picks by NFC South teams that would give the division an advantage over other teams in the league in 2017.

"I don't think he will be around when the Carolina Panthers pick, but it would be Leonard Fournette from LSU," the AFC general manager said. "With all those huge young wide receivers and Greg Olsen at tight end, to have a elite back like Fournette along with Cam Newton would be difficult to defense. I think Fournette is going to be a star in the NFL. When healthy he is a lot like Adrian Peterson. If not Fournette, I would go with the Florida State halfback Dalvin Cook. Cook is powerful, an excellent vision runner and a very good receiver coming out of the backfield."

He said don't be surprised of the Falcons draft an offensive player early.

"Atlanta has shown they are an aggressive team when it comes to going after who they want. They could use another pass rusher off the edge, but I wouldn't be surprised to see them piece together a deal to move up and do what they did a few years back to acquire wide receiver Julio Jones from Alabama, and go right back to the Alabama Crimson Tide team and pick tight end O.J. Howard," he said. "He was not used a lot at Alabama as a pass catching threat until his senior year, but he has the looks of an All-Pro talent. Howard is a huge target wide receiver playing tight end and they have really never replaced Tony Gonzalez. With Matt Ryan, Julio (Jones) and the two young backs in Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman, and then throw in a player like O.J. Howard, that would cause your defense a lot of headaches."

Saints' Sean Payton: We've got to find a pass-rusher Posted By: Andrus Posted On Yesterday 04:13 AM


By Mike Triplett | ESPN Staff Writer

METAIRIE, La. -- Sean Payton didn’t play coy when asked about one of the New Orleans Saints' most glaring needs -- a pass-rusher.

Payton was asked in a Q&A with the team’s website whether he considers a pass-rusher as a “need” or a “want.”

Payton replied, “It’s a must.”

“We’ve got to find a pass-rusher,” Payton continued. “Now, whether that comes from free agency or that comes from the draft, we have to be better at affecting the quarterback.

“Last year if you took hurries, sacks, pressures -- a study of all three things that can happen with a rush -- we were in the bottom third of the league and that has to get better.”

Payton didn’t specify “edge rusher” in that Q&A but it seems pretty apparent that’s what the Saints need most...

Sean Paytonís Offseason Plan Coming Into View Posted By: Andrus Posted On Yesterday 04:10 AM


by Ty Anania

It looks as if the New Orleans Saints will focus on bringing in offensive and defensive line help in free agency, and may let some of their CB and RB needs fall to the draft.

New Orleans Saints Head Coach Sean Payton recently spoke with Saints writer John DeShazier about the teamís offseason, their 2016 season, and the future of the team. And the way he talked about the draft may indicate how the team plans to address some of their roster holes.

On the subject of the relationship between the draft and free agency, Payton said:

They have to work together in this way: If you have a must, and a ďmustĒ means you must fill this spot Ė letís say itís a certain position Ė do you feel like thatís available in the draft, and what kind of depth do you think exists at that position in the draft? If itís not, then you pay a little bit closer attention to free agency at that position.

That means that, if a position is deep enough in the draft, it might fall to the side in free agency. And in this yearís draft, according to Payton and to anyone keeping track, CB is a seriously deep position...

Saints deep at safety, but decisions loom on Jairus Byrd, Kenny Vaccaro Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-17-2017 07:45 PM


Mike Triplett | ESPN Staff Writer

Jairus Byrd's future is one of the most pressing issues on the New Orleans Saints' agenda this offseason. The three-time former Pro Bowler will almost certainly need to take a pay cut to stay on the roster.

However, a decision on fellow safety Kenny Vaccaro's future won't be far behind, since Vaccaro is heading into the final year of his contract.

Throw in the fact that veteran Roman Harper is an unrestricted free agent who could be mulling retirement, and you see why I have safeties ranked so high in my position-by-position breakdown of the Saints' offseason needs -- even though they added depth with second-round draft pick Vonn Bell last year.

Plus, the thinking here is that the Saints could make room for more impact players anywhere on their defense.

Five of my top six needs are on the defensive side of the ball, with the safeties at No. 6...

New Orleans Saints 2017 free agency outlook: Wide receivers Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-17-2017 07:41 PM


By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints boast one of the top wide receiver corps in the NFL based on just about every factor.

Led by Brandin Cooks, Willie Snead and Michael Thomas, the unit is talented, hard working, young and relatively inexpensive. That trio combined for more receiving yards in 2016 than the total passing yards or four NFL teams.

The group also has role players like Brandon Coleman, who excels as a blocker, and Jake Lampman and Tommylee Lewis, who offer some help on special teams.

As New Orleans looks to solidify its roster this offseason, wide receiver could one of the few positions where upgrades might not be available -- and certainly hard to find at a reasonable price...

Saints should stay away from WR market come free agency time Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-17-2017 07:39 PM


By Larry Holder, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

Wide receiver is one position group for the New Orleans Saints without much headache this offseason.

The young corps of Brandin Cooks, Michael Thomas, Willie Snead and Brandon Coleman is one of, if not the best ensemble of wide receivers in the NFL. Plus all of them are young and come with an inexpensive price tag ... for now.

This means the Saints won't have to pry open their wallet for any receiver when free agency opens in March. There's no need to pursue Alshon Jeffery, Victor Cruz, Terrelle Pryor, Kenny Stills or anyone else.

The Saints will focus on taking care of their own receivers with Snead and Coleman as exclusive rights free agents. In this scenario, the two players would only become actual free agents if the Saints opted not to bring them back. Also, the contract terms as an exclusive rights free agent are low...

Saints Coach Sean Payton reviews coaching staff hires, offseason plans in lengthy Q&A

John DeShazier -- NewOrleansSaints.com


Already, it has been a busy offseason for the New Orleans Saints, headlined by a coaching staff shakeup. As the team enters free agency and then the NFL Draft – the latter preceded by a stop at the NFL Combine – New Orleans will continue to look for ways to post a winning record after three consecutive 7-9 finishes. Coach Sean Payton sat down with NewOrleansSaints.com senior writer John DeShazier to discuss some of the offseason proceedings.

JD: Give me a thumbnail on each of the coaches you chose to hire this offseason, and why you chose each one.

PAYTON: We just kind of finished the process. On defense, Mike Nolan is new, he’ll be working with our linebackers. He’s someone I’ve known for a long time. We’ve competed against his teams, he brings a ton of experience to the room and I think he’ll be a great asset for (defensive coordinator) Dennis (Allen). He’s someone that has been a coordinator, he’s been a head coach in our league (from 2005-08, with the 49ers), his father was a head coach in our league, a head coach of the Saints (Dick Nolan, from 1978-80).

Ryan Nielsen comes from North Carolina State. He’s a younger coach, working with the defensive line, he’s done a tremendous job there at N.C. State. Ryan played defensive line at USC. He did a great job during the interview process.

We hired Bradford Banta from Washington as our special team coordinator. Bradford played 11 years in this league and he’s been with some real good special team coaches. This year, more than I would say in years past, we’ve had a little bit more turnover (on the coaching staff) but in each of these positions, we probably interviewed four or five candidates, at least, per position. Bradford did a great job.

Those guys have all arrived, so Ryan Nielsen is here, Mike Nolan is here, Bradford is here. Offensively, (receivers coach) Johnny Morton was named offensive coordinator with the Jets. We hired Curtis Johnson, who, obviously, we know well, I know well. Curtis was our receiver coach for a number of years before he became Tulane’s head coach. I think he’ll be a great asset to that room, I know he’s looking forward to meeting with these players and getting caught up to speed and getting to know these guys. We assume that he’s been here (in New Orleans), but it’s been awhile since C.J. has been back.

NFL sets cap percentages for franchise tags Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-16-2017 08:18 PM


By Mike Florio on February 14, 2017, 7:07 PM EST


The franchise-tag crop report has arrived. Sort of.

Prior to 2011, the non-exclusive franchise tenders were determined by averaging the five highest cap numbers at each position from the prior year. Starting in 2011, the tenders are determined by the aggregate sum of the salary cap for the five prior years, divided by the aggregate sum of the franchise tags at each position over the same five-year period. The relative cap percentage is then applied to the base salary cap number for the new league year and, voila, the franchise tenders are known.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the 2017 percentages are as follows:

Quarterback: 12.735 percent.

Defensive end: 10.14 percent.

Receiver: 9.39 percent.

Linebacker: 8.712 percent.

Offensive line: 8.546 percent.

Cornerback: 8.51 percent.

Defensive tackle: 8.016 percent...

Cardinals president confirms they'll use franchise tag on Chandler Jones Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-16-2017 07:43 PM


by Jared Dubin

Cardinals coach Bruce Arians made it widely known earlier this offseason that the team would use the franchise tag on pass-rusher Chandler Jones if they can't come to an agreement on a long-term deal before the start of free agency. "Chandler's not going anywhere because if we have to, we will franchise him," Arians said, per the Cardinals' official website.

During a radio appearance this week, Cardinals president Michael Bidwill reiterated that stance.

"We're not going to mess around with that," Bidwill said, referring to the possibility of not retaining Jones, per the team's website. "He's a great pass rusher, but if we can't agree to terms that work for us, we're just going to franchise him. His people know that."

Jones was acquired from the New England Patriots last offseason in exchange for guard Jonathan Cooper and a second-round pick. He proceeded to have one of the best seasons of his career, recording 11 sacks and 66 quarterback pressures from his position as a hybrid defensive end/outside linebacker...

New Orleans Saints 2017 free agency outlook: Running backs Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-16-2017 07:28 PM


By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune


Two years ago, the New Orleans Saints signed C.J. Spiller in free agency, hoping the running back could add the speed element the team previously had with Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles.

The Spiller experiment didn't work out, though, as he battled injuries in 2015 and had just one offensive gain of 20-plus yards. Then, the Saints cut him after making him a healthy scratch in Week 1 last year.

So, heading into 2017, it stands to reason New Orleans will look for another explosive running back at some point this offseason to pair with Mark Ingram. How much the team wants to invest in such a player remains to be seen.

The Saints are projected to have nearly $30 million in cap space when free agency begins, and considering how they've made creative deals with significantly less free space, they should be able to offer some big deals to marquee players who become available.

Over the next two weeks, we'll review the top free agents who could be available at every position...

Michael Thomas aiming to avoid a sophomore slump Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-16-2017 05:10 PM


By Kevin Patra | Around the NFL writer

Michael Thomas is a stud.

The New Orleans Saints receiver spent his rookie season slicing up defensive backs to the tune of 92 receptions, 1,137 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. Those are all Saints franchise rookie records and the second-most yards for a rookie wideout in NFL history.

Taken in the second round of the 2016 draft (the sixth receiver off the board), Thomas earned nearly double the yards of the next closest rookie receiver (Sterling Shepard, 683). The 6-foot-3 ball-snatcher wasn't just best in his class, but immediately shoved his name among the top receivers in the entire NFL. Thomas finished in the top 10 in receptions, yards and touchdowns for receivers in 2016. Oh, and he did that all while still missing one game.

Simple stats not enough for you? Fine. How about Next Gen Stats? As NFL.com colleague Matt Harmon pointed out, Thomas finished seventh in the NFL on catches in tight coverage, with a 56 percent catch rate on balls with less than one yard of separation. The Saints receiver also finished seventh among No. 1 receivers in separation per target -- generating 2.38 yards of separation. Combine those stats and you can see that Thomas not only can make contested catches, but also can burn corners with crisp routes...

Tim Hightower, kick returner should be Saints' free-agent RB strategy Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-16-2017 03:22 PM


By Larry Holder, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

Depth at running back hasn't been a major issue for the New Orleans Saints for the majority of the past decade.

There always seems to be a running back biding his time to receive carries. Names like Pierre Thomas, Chris Ivory and Khiry Robinson come to mind.

The Saints' running game thrived when it was actually implemented in 2016. But there really isn't a glut of tailbacks when you scan through the Saints' current depth chart.

Mark Ingram, Daniel Lasco and Marcus Murphy are the only backs under contract with the Saints for the 2017 season. Tim Hightower and Travaris Cadet are on the verge of free agency. Among the five backs, Ingram and Hightower are the only players who've received significant carries the past couple of years...

Underhill: Nick Fairley and the Saints say they want to stick together, but will the money work? Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-15-2017 06:42 PM


By Nick Underhill

When keeping the view strictly on the field, determining that Nick Fairley should be a part of the Saints defensive line moving forward is an easy task.

Multiple sources have said both the team and player would like to stick together. Fairley likes playing in New Orleans, which is close to his hometown of Mobile, Alabama, and grew fond of coach Sean Payton. The organization had no issues with Fairley last season and realizes he was a key component of the defense.

The big issue will be figuring out what Fairley is worth and coming to an agreement that makes sense for all parties involved when his contract voids at the end of the month.

He could be seeking something in the range of $9.5 million. That would put him above Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford, who has an average annual value of $9 million and had 4Ĺ sacks and eight quarterback hits (Fairley had 22), but below San Diegoís Corey Liuget, who has an average annual value of $10.25 million and has recorded three sacks over the past two seasons.

Fairley recorded 6Ĺ sacks last season, during a year in which he spent some time playing on the nose in three-man fronts, and had nearly 50 other pressures. He was, by any account, one of the better defensive tackles in the NFL. What Fairley can be certain of is that the Saints will not likely pay him a contract with an average annual value exceeding the $11 million defensive end Cameron Jordan is currently being paid...

Drew Brees and the Saints can sit tight for one more year, but then what? Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-15-2017 06:36 PM


By Larry Holder, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

This could have been a far more nerve-racking offseason for the New Orleans Saints.

Drew Brees would have been the NFL headliner for the free agent class of 2017. It wouldn't have mattered that he had just turned 38 a month ago. The guy still plays at an elite level and there's no question teams (cough, Denver, cough) would line up to land Brees.

Both parties nixed any thoughts of a breakup months ago when Brees and the Saints hammered out a one-year extension through the 2017 season. Brees even did the Saints a favor with his contract as his salary cap number sits at $19 million for the upcoming season.

(Brees' new deal also gave the Saints enough cap space at the time to cut C.J. Spiller and absorb his dead money. Absurd.)

The panic concerning Brees and the Saints will only shift one more year, though.

Brees said at the end of the 2016 season that he won't pursue another contract with the Saints at all this offseason. He'll play out his deal and see what happens...

New Orleans Saints don't really have any franchise tag candidates in 2017 Posted By: Andrus Posted On 02-15-2017 06:34 PM


By Josh Katzenstein, NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

The New Orleans Saints last used the franchise tag in 2014, and it appears that streak won't end in 2017.

NFL teams can designate players for the franchise or transition tag starting Wednesday, and although the Saints have some pending free agents they'll pursue, it's unlikely any of them will fetch contracts that measure up to the price of the tag.

Defensive tackle Nick Fairley, guard Jahri Evans and cornerback Sterling Moore are among the top pending free agents for New Orleans. The projected franchise tag price for a defensive tackle is $13.5 million, an offensive lineman would receive $13.7 million and a cornerback $14.3 million, according to CBS Sports cap expert and former agent Joel Corry.

The Saints haven't officially stated their plans with regard to the tag. If they had any interest, they would have to make such a move by March 1.

Jimmy Graham was the last player the Saints tagged as they applied the non-exclusive tag in 2014 before signing him to a long-year deal in the summer -- then, of course, trading him to the Seattle Seahawks the next year...

New Orleans Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and director of pro scouting Terry Fontenot have expressed a desire for the team to be aggressive in free agency this year.

In a few weeks, we'll finally see some of their plans for improving the roster as unrestricted free agents will be free to sign with other teams starting March 9 at 4 p.m., the beginning of the 2017 league year.

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT -- Mike Detillier

NFL Prospects from THE BOOT

By Mike Detillier


I have been evaluating college talent headed to the NFL for 30 years and every year something jumps out at me. In the 2017 NFL draft class, what jumps out to me is the huge amount of potential pro prospects with Louisiana roots available to the 32 NFL teams.

Six out of the last nine years Louisiana per capita has produced more NFL players than any other state in the United States. In those 3 other years they came in second.

I have never seen so many potential Louisiana pro prospects in my 30 years covering the college football world in one draft class. Below are prospects who played high school football and grew up in Louisiana.

In my potential top-30 prospects Louisiana has 4:

Leonard Fournette-Halfback, LSU (St. Augustine)
Tim Williams- Outside Linebacker, Alabama (University Lab)
Cam Robinson-Offensive Tackle, Alabama (West Monroe)
Tre’Davious White-Cornerback, LSU (Green Oaks-Shreveport)


Prospects considered to be selected in the second or third round of the 2017 NFL draft Louisiana has 6 in:

Malachi Dupre-Wide Receiver, LSU (John Curtis)
Davon Godchaux-Defensive Tackle, LSU (Plaquemine)
Jeremy Cutrer-Cornerback, Middle Tennessee (Jewel-Sumner-Kentwood)
Duke Riley-Outside Linebacker, LSU (John Curtis)
Carlos Henderson-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (McDonogh 35)
Kendell Beckwith-Middle Linebacker, LSU (East Feliciana)


NFL prospects with very late third round into the fifth round Louisiana has 6 prospects:

Tanzel Smart-Defensive Tackle, Tulane (Scotlandville Magnet)
Chad Williams-Wide Receiver, Grambling (Madison Prep)
Elijah McGuire-Halfback, UL-Lafayette (Vandebilt-Catholic)
Trent Taylor-Wide Receiver, Louisiana Tech (Evangel Christian)
Travin Dural-Wide Receiver, LSU (Breaux Bridge)
Xavier Woods-Strong Safety, Louisiana Tech (West Monroe)


Prospects with either sixth or seventh round pick grades Louisiana has 7 potential draft choices:

Cameron Tom-Offensive Center, Southern Mississippi (Catholic High B.R.)
D’Nerius Antoine-Strong Safety, Southern Mississippi (Westgate)
Cethan Carter-Tight End, Nebraska (Rummel)
Josh Boutte-Offensive Guard, LSU (Westgate)
B.J. Singleton-Defensive Tackle, Houston (Destrehan)
Lenard Tillery-Halfback, Southern (McKinley)
Dwayne Thomas-Cornerback, LSU (O. Perry Walker)


Prospects who just missed out on late round pick grades and will be signed as NFL free agents Louisiana has 5 in:

Speedy Noil-Wide Receiver/Return Man, Texas A&M (Edna Karr)
DeSean Smith-Tight End, LSU (Barbe)
Rickey Jefferson-Free Safety, LSU (Destrehan)
Lazedrick Thompson-Halfback, Tulane (St. Charles Catholic)
Otha Peters-Outside/Inside Linebacke,r UL-Lafayette (Covington)

The above numbers are just remarkable for our state to produce in one draft class.


Watch for Engram

I know the New Orleans Saints need help on the defensive side of the ball, but we all know Sean Payton loves offensive players and this is an offense-driven league. In Round 2 of the 2017 NFL draft don’t be surprised to see the Saints take a long look at Ole Miss tight end Evan Engram, if he is still on the board.

The 6-3, 230 pound Engram has re-written the Rebel records for receptions for tight ends and he wowed the scouts in Mobile, Alabama this past week at...
