Edit: I'm aware Smith went back to school. Not editing it out though.

I'm ready for the Senior Bowl and beyond already. I'll be spending most of my Sundays watching videos on players who catch my eye.

Easy targets are guys like DeVonta Smith from Alabama. Great speed. Catches everything. And is a big play waiting to happen. Would do well opposite Michael Thomas.


Another guy on defense I'm learning more about is Hamsah Nasirildeen. 6'4", 216lbs. Sideline to sideline speed with hips almost like a corner. Imagine Obi Melifonwu but with actual instincts and a much harder hitter. It's like this guy was hand crafted for me to fall in love with as a player. Only flaw is he's coming off an injury, but that might be exactly what allows him to slide to the 2nd or 3rd day. I can see him lining up all over the place to cause trouble for offenses. He's not even a head hunter. He gets low and explodes through the ball carrier. Forced a few fumbles at Florida State.



Who is everyone else keeping a close eye on as we transition to the offseason?

I get hat you're saying but Dion Jones's don't grow on trees yet and I'm pretty sure that guys like Curtis Lofton or Donta Hightower will still find a role somewhere even though they likely wont be drafted highly anymore.

Im betting that there are many desperate teams who don't have the option of a Dieon Jones who would leap at the opportunity to draft a guy like Lofton in the Middle rounds.
The Kiko Alonso's and Manti Teo's of the world will always have a home as base down LB's when a team doesn't have the luxury of a 3 down LB. They'll simply look to platoon the situation...exactly what we'll have to do with Anzalone next year who has proven that we can't count on him to play all 3 down and remain healthy the entire season.

Here's a list of starting QBs who threw for sub-60% in their second year since 2010. I guess he could be Cam, but it's unlikely.

The only other QB on that list capable of rushing for 800 yards and 8 TDs per season is Cam, so I’d say he’s closer to Cam than Blaine Gabbert. He also threw for 3,100 yards and went 20:9, while leading a mediocre team to the playoffs. He did so with a crop of pass catchers highlighted by journeymen John Brown/Cole Beasley.

That yards/attempt tho. Time will tell.

I'm just not a believer in guys that can't throw at a decent completion percentage. They almost always flame out. Of anyone on this board I'm sure you've seen the correlations between completion percentage in college and NFL success.

Buffalo needs to double down on receiver within tgeir top 3 picks. Shenault Jr with sub 4.4 speed and Allen’s arm seem an ideal pairing

I don’t love Tee Higgins, especially for New Orleans, but he fits Buffalo and Josh Allen perfectly. He’s great down the field, outside the numbers and Allen can throw the ball downfield effortlessly.

For the guys that are pounding the table for Interior O-line... what do you think about this prospect?

I bring to you Netane Muti, Fresno State.

One of the meanest nastiest Guards in college football, great lateral quickness very good at pulling, climbing out to the 2nd level. Plays with a nasty mean streak, has multiple occurrences on film of just ragdolling, and pancaking multiple Defenders on the same play. Great pass blocking, flexibility and hand usage. Some scouts compare his film to a more athletic Will Hernandez....


* There is one major drawback though. Injuries.. he suffered two major season ending injuries. They were non related though, and putting those aside his film was dominant.. So do you take the chance that his injuries were just flukes? and you could end up with a Quenton Nelson type Mauler at Guard?

Pff has him as their highest ranked guard since Quentin Nelson.

I love it.

Also John Runyan Jr was a Beast at the Shrine game.


I'd take either one.

The Kiko Alonso's and Manti Teo's of the world will always have a home as base down LB's when a team doesn't have the luxury of a 3 down LB. They'll simply look to platoon the situation...exactly what we'll have to do with Anzalone next year who has proven that we can't count on him to play all 3 down and remain healthy the entire season.
Anzalone is great but a guy like Kenneth Murray, Sean Bradley, or Evan Weaver could challenge even a healthy Anzalone for playing time.

I really like Binjimen Victor.



Some other names to consider:

Mason Kinsey (most impressive wr at the shrine game)

Darrelll Stewart (Dominated as a big slot in the Collegiate bowl)


Kendrick Rogers (shows flashes but never put it all together at A&M, had huge games vs Clemson and LSU in 18')



Aaron Parker (had a nice grab at the Shrine game.

The Saints seem to “target” 1 upper-tier FA every offseason... they don’t always land them (Suh 2 offseasons ago)... but sometimes they do (Jared Cook).

Im interested to see who that guy is this offseason... and if the Saints can land him.
I think the big ticket player they target will either be a WR, LB, or OG (Perriman, Littleton, Scherff).

Who it is will go a long way in narrowing the focus of that 1st pick at #24.

Regardless of how FA and the Saints first 2 selections of the draft go... Day 3 simply MUST include the Saints selecting Texas WR Devin Duvernay!

Lynn Bowden is someone who's really intriguing to me. I've seen his name mentioned here, too (not sure if it was in this thread).

Anyway, he had a cool little back and forth with CJGJ today. He told a site that CJGJ was the toughest player he played against in college. So the two of them already have a mutual respect.

I believe Payton often seeks players' input about potential prospects.
