I thought I'd share something that I sat down to look at because it offers a different way to view our draft. Below is a list of the players that we obtained in the draft and as UDFAs who were rated as draft-worthy players. I used Mike Detillier's guide because I had it handy and because he...
OK...tear it apart...give it some love...whatever...
Your score is: 9084 (GRADE: A)
Round 1 Pick 12: Myles Jack, OLB/ILB, UCLA (A+)
Round 2 Pick 16: Robert Nkemdiche, DT/DE, Ole Miss (A+)
Round 3 Pick 15: Joshua Garnett, OG, Stanford (A+)
Round 4 Pick 14: Roberto Aguayo, K...
I posted this in another thread, but I was thinking it could use its own thread (mods, delete it if not). Here's my shot at the overall chart of players trying to make the team, with likely locks; *drafted players*; and post-draft FAs...(including unsigned tryouts):
QB - Brees...
Apologies if already posted, couldn't find through searches.
2014 NFL draft: Big cornerbacks like Richard Sherman are game-changers | The MMQB with Peter King
This is a pretty good article on where the NFL has come and where it is going on the trend of bigger corners in the game.
I know that some of the forum members follow WalterFootball.com pretty closely as a NFL draft resource, and I'm sure many are aware that he holds a "Reader" mock draft annually. In it, he posts a cloud of players and allows the readers to vote on who they would draft at each position, if they...
In light of the Sproles trade for a 5th rounder, I thought it'd be a good idea to see who we've drafted in the 5th round under Payton:
2013 - Kenny Stills WR
2012 - Corey White S/CB
2011 - No pick
2010 - Matt Tennant C
2009 - Thomas Morstead P
2008 - Carl Nicks G
2008 - DeMario Pressley DT
Menelik Watson - RT, FSU, 6'6'' 320 lbs, 4.7 40 yd dash
I really like this kid with a mid round pick and think he could be the solution to our problems at RT. He is raw, but has insane natural ability for his size. He's like Bruce Campbell, but has intelligence, motivation and a real nasty...
I believe that the Saints will draft Greg Childs (WR-Ark) if he is available. Here is the strongest reason why:
"One of the best blocking WR in the draft, uses his big body and long arms to engage defender, also a solid "wham” blocker"
At 6'3'' 219 lbs with 33 1/2'' arms and enormous 10 1/8"...
Think most of you guys will love our pick...either way...

I've seen Sean Weatherspoon being drafted by us in more than half of the mocks that I look at every day.
The adjectives being used to describe him are leader, playmaker, and game-changer.
What I don't understand about these Mocks is how a guy like that will fall to #32.
