Usually we have a thread of college prospects to keep an eye on during the college football season (I blame Covid, 2020, and the CFB season being so touch and go for why we didn’t start this thread sooner).

Please alert us of players we should keep an eye on as we go through the season, and define what positions the Saints need to go after in the draft.

One of the reasons that I'm optimistic about certain players falling is seeing Oweh's performance today.

He's currently not even mocked in the first round but now he will likely go top 10.

I also see Elijah Moore probably going top 25 after today.
I almost NEVER like these all projection prospects, but I do like Oweh a lot. Oweh & Jimmy Graham are the only all projection guys ive ever really thought were gonna be good pros. For Jimmy, it was because of the basketball background & how he caught the ball so easily. For Oweh, it’s because you can clearly see how disruptive he was at Penn St. He just wasnt/isnt a finisher quite yet. In the pros, i think a competent DL coach/DC can sharpen what he already does & add new tools to his pressure repertoire.

I think top 10 is way too high though, given all the talent at the top. Those guys have both the production & projection to boot. As high as Oweh’s ceiling is (he could end up being the best pass rusher of this class), i cant ignore his low floor & the bust factor that always comes with. Oweh can be a super charged modern day version of Jason Taylor, or he could be a Vernon Gholston-esque flop. I think it depends on where he goes. I personally think Oweh’s best value is between 25 & 55.

Spencer Brown, Dillion Radnuz and Quinn Minerz might just be around later as consolation prizes.
Dillion Radnuz would be a mega get for us! That dude is nasty as all hell & has an enforcer vibe to him. Would LOVE to see us pick him on Day 2 at some point & have us groom him to be Peat’s eventual replacement. Radnuz is a mean guy.

I'm kinda counting on the Pat's to pick him at 15.

Reason being is because he is a deadringer for Chandler Jones but much faster.

Jones only had 10 total sacks in 3 years at Syracuse but had 35" arms and a 7.07 3 cone.


Ninkovich also had a 6.96 3 cone

Oweh is much faster than both and has 34.5" arms and a 6.87 3 cone.

Granson is a decent h-back/FB candidate

Similar to Jed Collins

Not sure if youve seen or commented about this player. He seems to have good hands, can make tough catches, has decent speed but doesnt appear to be a burner.

Recieving stats are fairly impressive and his play looks similar to M.T. Though i dont want to say wideout is like CGM. That is rare ground

A mock draft on NFL.COM has NO taking him in the second Rd.

St. Brown is literally a mini-Mike T. He runs the while route tree, is a hands catcher, he’s got excellent ball tracking skills & his solid in combat catch battles. On top of that, St. Brown is gritty as hell doing a lot of dirty work like blocking & running routes to clear up other targets. Love St. Browns overall game & i love his swag.

That would be a great pick then. It reminds me of last year when @sammymvpknight posted Callaways highlight video. First thing i thought after watching video is he reminds me of Colston except a tad faster.

At 2and glance his workout was very impressive.

6.81 3 cone
10'7 broad jump
38" vertical
4.5 40

He's drawing comps to Robert Woods.

The 6.8 3 cone was identical to MT and his 20 reps shows he has a lot of strength.

Really impressive routes there.


He's not the 200+ ideal size but he packs a bunch of strength into 197lbs with 20 reps.

Jeudy was also less than 200 last year.

@Joodas Avila

What's your take on Davis Mills?

I like he and Kellen Mond and Newman as potential starters.

You're the PAC-12 expert.






He even ran a 4.58 at his pro day.

Davis Mills is an incredibly accurate (ball placement) QB, and the way he stands in the pocket and deliver the football reminds me of Peyton.
