....Najee Harris, running back, Alabama.

Another multi-threat addition to an offense that will need to adjust to a new starter at QB. In addition to commanding the attention of opposing defenses on his own, stopping the Saints’ offense becomes even more problematic when he pairs with Kamara.

The Saints offense will likely favor the run until Jamie’s can prove otherwise. If he (Winston) ends up meeting all our hopes as a passer, having Harris is still a major bonus not just as a receiver, but as another weapon to be accounted for.

And yes, in a pinch he can also play safety. 😜

Lol so basically any 16 out of the possible 22 positions available, got it.
The last 3 drafts everyone (well almost everyone) has been screaming for every WR, RB, or QB, available and what have the Saints done?

I wouldn’t mind this. You could extend Kamara’s career by lightening up his carries. I’d make AK more of a WR than a 15 carry back. Also, as has been discussed, it will take some pressure off the passing game.

If used correctly Kamara due to his conditioning and diet will have counting this year another 6 very productive seasons. Provided of course that he avoids major injury.

Hate to say it but you're right.

Ireland hates skill positions early.

You could go a step further and add McCoy as their first pick in 2019 and have 4 straight linemen.

We have to consider Ram and Armstead have two very expensive contracts to be renewed.

If they realize they can’t afford both, and I hope it’s not the case, then an offensive tackle would be a very smart choice.

I'm in we can find a special back after the 1st crowd. Reggie lived up to the hype, Ingram not so much. PT & AK two of the best picks we ever made and neither were in the 1st.
