I honestly don't think that he'll be there. But if he is there...I think that there is a very good chance that he'll be the best available on my big board. He has a little more upside and coverage abilities than Murray (who I also like quite a bit). I like him more than the CBs available in that same territory. I like the WRs who may be available, but with the depth of this draft, I think that it's prudent to just wait and draft a few from the mid-to-late rounds.

Great pick, but I won’t get my hopes up with the Raiders sitting at 19. They need LBs and Queen fits the Mike Mayock mold perfectly.

It sounds like Queen is the perfect fit for us and the majority of this board wants him. Just how far do we have to move up to get him? 14-17?

I have no interest in trading up for anyone in the first round not a QB. This is just too strong of a draft. We need those mid round picks...3rd-4th rounders in this draft would be 2nd-3rd rounders in most other drafts.

Yeah. I would only accept maybe Isaiah Simmons but he'd need to fall to like 10th overall before it even becomes something we can pursue...and I still think someone else would outbid us.

Im pulling for the guy. We are just so snake bit on drafting linebackers that I will personally feel a whole lot more comfy with Wideout or CB in the first.

I wish it was that easy but I don't remember being this hyped about a LSU prospect that fits our team perfectly and is projected in many mocks to be available for our pick.

I'm extremely hyped about alot of the LSU talent that could be available for us at 24, not just Queen but if he's off the board by then there's potentially Jefferson, Fulton or even Chaisson falling to us in some mocks that would be excellent picks at 24 and would anyone of them would fit a position need for us.
I also love Delpit but somehow his projections seem to have dropped to the 2nd round.

Agreed. We have more than 1 position of need. Absent a QB Sean loves is within string range, I say just wait and see what falls to us. Has to be a quality player there in this draft.

We're snake bitten because we have only selected one LB in the 1st round since 1996, and it was Stephone Anthony who was a 2nd-3rd round prospect who literally nobody had as the #1 safety prospect of the class except the Saints.

I wouldn't be opposed to trading a pick next year to move up in the 2nd-4th round this year because I'd be willing to bet that this draft will be stronger than next year's draft. If anything we have too few of picks in this year's draft class.

that is valid. But could he have the same year one impact that one of the others could? We need a LB for sure but I don't like being locked in on a need. The flip side of course is that if we don't find another quality contributor or 2 in FA or cuts/waivers then we have a glaring hole much like WR last year.

The Saints have telegraphed their picks over the past handful of years. You know the position that they are going to select? The position they ignore in free agent. I'm pretty sure that before free agency even starts they identify what's likely to be available to them in the draft. The Saints were willing to go out and get a WR in free agency, made it a priority to get a safety, and resign interior OL. They at least didn't lose ground in those positions. The LB position? Davis is back...awesome. The Saints lost Klein, who was easily the 2nd best LB on the team, and honestly he wasn't a great LB. They have a year older Kiko Alonso, now coming off another ACL tear. They have Alex Anzalone, coming off yet another shoulder injury. They have Kaden Elliss, who was a 7th rounder last year who also is coming off an ACL tear. They have a year older Craig Robertson who looked incredibly slow last year year. There's just no way to argue that the LB position didn't get worse over the offseason, and it was already likely the weakness of the defense to begin with. I think that LB is far and away the greatest need on the team. Its the one position that I'd be ABSOLUTELY SHOCKED if the Saints go into the season with it's current depth chart. Sure, the Saints could use help at WR (its a very deep WR draft) and they could use some depth and competition at a few other spots...but the LB position undoubtedly needs an upgrade. Its an underwhelming group that has been injury prone. What happens if Demario Davis actually got hurt? We would be in a heap of you know what.
