Obviously some may think these players are interchangeable (number wise), but not bad

What would you change? Who is the farthest from where you would have them ranked?

This will create the same debate as the previous thread due to LF being so high. Opinions are understandably split on him and personally I would have him way, way lower.

As for this being a Saints Round 1 Big Board, I think my personal top 5 would be:

1) Myles Garrett
2) Derek Barnett
3) Tim Williams
4) Jonathan Allen
5) Zach Cunningham

Do you prefer Jackson over Tabor and Humphrey because of his versatility?

A tight end in the first?

How about that Fournette guy?

I like Howard but I don't know if he's one of the top 10-11 players in the draft.

Jackson over Tabor and Humphrey partially due to his versatility. Especially as a return man. Humphrey could end up being great, but Dee Milliner comes to mind. I'll have to watch him closely in the combine position drills. Jackson has the potential to be an elite return man. Could be our version of Tyreek Hill as far as special teams.

OJ Howard is ranked so high because a TE that can block and catch passes is very valuable in our offense. Part of the reason we traded Graham was his inability to run block. Fleener may not last past 2017 if he doesn't play better and the Hicks/Hooman trade is another testament to how much Payton values having multiple TEs.

Fournette is just one of those "generational talents" IMO. Don't want to turn this into a Fournette thread, but I'm sure anyone can see why I would think that, whether you agree or not.

I think he's a first round talent. Maybe we could trade down and still get him. Being equally skilled in blocking and receiving is pretty rare and valuable.

Peppers thank you
I think Peppers is a smaller/faster Vaccaro that can't cover as well. We already have Vaccaro as our "in the box" safety. I don't think Peppers will be that great playing deep.

Would like for this not to be merged. The other one is basically a Fournette thread. (No offense Sammy)
No offense taken. I like your board and we have lots of similarities. Nice to see that I'm not the only one very high on Takk.

The red thumb wasn't from me. I'm happy to have any questions or input. Just trying to generate some discussion around our first round prospects. I gave you a green lol.

He was ranked around 8-10 in my head until recently. All those videos in the draft prospects thread and some more reading up on him won me over. His athleticism is just off the charts and I think Bill Johnson would help him reach his potential.
