I think MI is more physical than Harris. He was at Alabama and he his now. MI is a collision RB.
Oh no... I think Ingram is definitely the better RB, but Harris is similar enough (and has untapped potential) that he could possibly be a viable replacement for MI with the potential to be as good as Ingram, if it works out.

In my opinion, keeping MI is the best option.

I'll add WR Marquise Brown, Oklahoma to my list. Many don't have him as a top 10 WR in this class, but I just like him. Reminds me of Tyreek Hill.
I don't care how small this guy is, he would be amazing in this offense

I don't know how to rate OL so I didn't. Considering our draft is half complete, I truly believe we could make a lot of waves in the next 3 years.

This draft is going to be deep at WR/TE. I'd be very happy with any of the top 10 WR or top 6 TE in the second round. At least one of these players should be available.

1. DK Metcalf, Mississippi
2. N'Keal Harry, Arizona State
3. Kelvin Harmon, NC State
4. Hollywood Brown, Oklahoma
5. JJ Arcega-Whiteside, Stanford
6. Riley Ridley, Georgia
7. Damarkus Lodge, Mississippi
8. AJ Brown, Mississippi
9. Hakeem Butler, Iowa State
10. Deebo Samuel, South Carolina

1. Noah Fant, Iowa
2. TJ Hockenson, Iowa
3. Dawson Knox, Mississippi
4. Irv Smith, Alabama
5. Kaden Smith, Stanford
6. Jace Sternberger, Texas A&M

I think we need to get either a serious talent opposite Marcus Williams at safety or a linebacker who can double as a safety. Haven’t had the time to really get into players outside of the games I watched already though.

LSUs Delpit is a good one though. As is Devin White. But they are first rounders. Out of our range.
Delpit is a sophomore and will not be drafted this year.

I would like to see the Saints draft Isaac Nauta. Remember watching him in one of the high school all star games (can’t remember if it was Under Armour or Army All-American) and being scared to death that he was going to be in the SEC. All the respect in the world to Jim Chaney, but his system really held Nauta back from being what he is. Insanely talented guy. Going to show well athletically. In an offense that can exploit matchups, he’ll be a far superior pro.

I think Willis will go quite a bit higher than 6th round. He was the best player on the field in every game this year except LSU.

Hoping we keep Ingram. But if we can’t, I love Devin Singletary from FAU.

I like Nauta, but I love Hockenson. I think Hock is George Kittle 2.0

Both Iowa TEs are great, but I think both will be gone before the Saints get their first pick if Hockenson declares. To me Nauta, along Alize Mack from Notre Dame, stand out as guys that profile well for what the Saints want in a pass catching TE with college production that wasn’t at all indicative of what they could be in a less vanilla offense.

I can not agree more! Moving forward, I think we're solid at WR. Cam Merrideth should be healthy and hungry after another lost year and Kirkwood and Trequan should be even better and more reliable w/a year under their belts. In terms of a S/LB/MONEY, I'm really liking Taylor Rapp from Wash and my favorite S/DB this year is Nasir Adderley from Delaware.

Rapp is a serial killer in run support and is a big time hitter. He reminds me a lot of Eric Weddle. And I've been watching Nas Adderley since 2016. That dude has an uncanny knack for coming up w/huge game changing plays. I love his range and how quickly he locates the ball when they test him in coverage. He plays both CB and S w/a lot of fluidity and he also packs a legit punch in run support. He's also a very well versed KR. Yes, he's a small school DIV1 guy, but he was perpetually one of, if not, the best guy on the field on gamedays. I cant wait to see Adderley mix it up w/the rest of the class at the Senior Bowl.

A mid-late RD TE who i think would fit the O well is Zach Gentry from Mich. He may not have the “stats” that some of the higher ranked guys have, but he’s got all the makings of a high end combo TE. That dude is really fast for his size. He’s an accomplished blocker, has a knack for getting open, attacks the seams & is a legit dowfield threat. He had more chances this year to show off his improved receiving skills & had some pretty big games & a bunchnof splash plays. I think the arrow is pointing way up for Gentry & i think he’ll be a really good pro. Especially in an O like ours & w/a coach like Payton developing him.

I'd be all over Adderly but I'll be shocked if he doesn't go in the first round. Rapp might be an option but I don't think he has the speed to play deep.
