Get Nick Neimann. 9.9.

And Jacob Harris.

And Jonathan Marshall.

Jacob Harris would add value to our receiving corps.
Elijah Mitchell would add power and speed to our RBs. 6'1", 225 #, 4.37 40yd.

Jacob Harris is gone like the wind.

Rams.

Every pick was above a 9 except Book.
The trend was definitely there.
Good job following up St fury
Book is a Glorified Bruce Gradkowski.

The trend tells me that Sean has a lot of confidence in his and his staff’s ability to coach these folks and develop them to their fullest.

the RAS analysis is probably the only thing of interest to come out of this year's draft analysis
of course it will be weaponized for bad takes for next year's draft

...but why wait
It’s definitely interesting but I’m taking a wait and see approach on how valuable it really is. Looking at how previous saints draft picks (back to 1987) I’d say it’s a mixed bag, at best. For as many great players that scored in the high 9s there are just as many duds.

If you look at the list of highest RAS scores for this draft you’ll notice some of the saints players drafted were high on the lost but weren’t the highest. They’re pairing IQ with RAS to get their own scores

I wonder what the WRAPS and playmakers score was for the WR we picked up in the 7th. Was?

Sorry but as a stats guy I can’t help myself. The RAS was developed using players combine scores as a first determination and pro day when not available. So essentially all of this years prospects had artificially high RAS scores because you are comparing only pro day to the combine (which had a much slower track). Not to say that the Saints players aren’t good athletes...but I think that the limitations of RAS this year are undeniable.
