If I had a choice... Edwards at RB in a trade down scenario

Pass on Fulton and Queen. Secondary has enough youth

Jefferson will be drafted before us.

I'm hoping for a player from the Duluth Bulldogs personally.

Because coming from Duluth would somehow add significance to his selection as a Saints player?

The only thing CEH lacks is top-end speed. Other than that, he's the complete package. LT certainly thinks so:
"I thought he was great [in his performance at the Combine]," Tomlinson said during an appearance on NFL Total Access. "The lateral movements that we talk about. Here’s a guy that’s an all-purpose type of guy. He can do a little bit of everything. Just look at the tape. Look at the lateral movement. It’s so good. He’s short and compact and has a low center of gravity when he runs, and then he has a burst through the whole [sic] that you really love. He gets up to the defenders so fast. Catching the ball out of the backfield is something we really wanted to see, and it was as advertised today."

Hey man, don't pick on my love for the mighty Duluth. It's something I should be able to reference freely and frequently while posting on a Saints board, amirite?

I would not be made if we used our first round pick on Jefferson, Delpit, Fulton, Queen, or ah-hem... Joe freakin' Burrow.
lol on Joe.

An LSU guy nobody is really talking about is Chaisson. He's been dubbed a 3-4 OLB because of his size. Then he shows up at the combine 6' 3" 254 lbs. In our offense he'd be more of a situational pass rusher, but at the same time... a speed rusher which we really don't have on the roster. Not my pic for us, but interesting.

I like a few of LSU's OL and DL in rounds 2-4 and I'm big on Clyde Edwards-Helaire, especially if it looks like we may lose Kamara in 2020 or 2021. I think it could take 2 RBs to fill AK's role, but there are a few prospects who might be able to do it on their own. CEH is one of them. He came on strong at the end of the year in all 3 phases of the RB position. Running, receiving, and pass blocking. I think he'll go in the 3rd round, but earlier than we pick. It would take a trade up to get him, and I can't see that happening.

Wouldn't mind Delpit but he and Jefferson probably gone before we pick

Not necessarily. The run on QBs and likely run on OL really could push both to the late first, or even the 2nd... as crazy as that sounds.

Here's a scenario for you... What if Cinci REALLY wants Joe Burrow AND Jefferson? They might be willing to trade the first picks in the 2nd and 3rd for a 1st and a later pick. That's the kind of potential deals I've been digging through on this rainy Wednesday.

I feel pretty confident one of Queen, Jefferson, or Delpit will be available at pick 24; and I have all three as guys I'm high on for the Saints to Draft.

There's the ole cliche that Payton never drafts LSU players high.. but truth be told this is the best chance because this is the best team they have ever fielded; and Payton/Ireland seem to love Drafting players from successful programs, with big game experience.

My only knock on Chaisson is that he has an injury history. We have enough of that on our defensive front as it is. I'll take Jefferson, Fulton, or Queen.
