Can’t find a “grade” from him, per se, but he isn’t thrilled with it. Says nobody they drafted will compete for a starting spot this season, but doesn’t necessarily hate any of the picks.

I think Adebo will immediately compete for (and earn) a starting spot at boundary corner. He could’ve been a late first round pick.

Turner will be rotational for the first year. I predict 150 snaps, mostly spelling Jordan because he doesn’t have the speed or bend to beat LTs in the NFL right now. More of a power rusher.

Werner will also be rotational in year 1. I don’t foresee 100+ defensive snaps for him though. Likely special teams to start out.

Book won’t play obviously, barring some freak happenstances. *knock on wood*

Young and Baker will be practice squad to start out. Could see both of them filling in on the active roster this season when needed, then right back to PS. Baker is intriguing. Reminds me of Marquez Callaway

If you look back at a lot players drafted on this Saints team they came here with little fanfare.
Ram, Kamara, Thomas, Ceedy, Marcus

And then Demario was signed with lil fanfare also.

But all these players keep on doing is making All Pro teams and ProBowls.

I think this year Ceedy will earn some accolades

I don't look at who's "starting". I look at who contributes at a high level while they are on the field.

Loomis said he didn't see many spots on this roster were a rookie could come in and start.
But even then, Werner and Adebo seem to have clear paths to starting roles this year if they can earn it.

In theory yes but we basically never run base sets so the nickel is our main D, and when we were in nickel Davis lines up on the strong side and Kwon was on the weak side

ah! 10-4 thank you for the education brotha

Maybe I’m forgetting someone but who has a shot at starting at WILL over Werner?

And Adebo has a great shot as starting
I heard Nick say on his podcast that the Saints hoped that Baun might take over MIKE and push Demario to WILL.

It seems like the training camp battle won't be between Baun and Werner directly, but whether Baun will be better at MIKE or Werner at WILL, since Davis is moveable.

Makes sense, I like that. Get the best players on the field. May the best man win, have a feeling it will be Werner though. They should use baun in 5-2 front when they wanna rush 5 on the line

I saw Payton's post draft conference.

He said that they see Werner competing for the WILL and he also said that Baun will continue working as a linebacker, not a pass rusher.

Not many details, I think it is too early to figure out the roles each of them will play.
