2019 Saints Mock Draft #Contest

2 comments

As the 2019 NFL Draft approaches the New Orleans Saints could go many different ways with their picks. They could go wide receiver since this draft has good depth at receiver and that would be fulfilling a need. They could go defensive line with Sheldon Rankins being injured and David Onyemata possibly being suspended. Here is my mock draft:

In the second round pick 62 I have the Saints taking wide receiver out of Stanford JJ Arcega Whiteside. He has great hands and body control and could be the perfect number 2 along side Mike Thomas. Fast forward to round 5 pick 168 I have the Saints taking LSU tight end Foster Moreau. Even though the Saints have Jared Cook and Josh Hill it couldn’t hurt to get a young talented tight end to watch and learn from them. I think the Saints would go linebacker and runningback with the two sixth round pick. TJ Edwards linebacker out of Wisconsin and Mike Weber runningback out of Ohio State. Both would be nice additions and depth at their positions. The two round seventh round picks I have them going defensive line Jordan Ledbetter out of Georgia and CeCe Jefferson out of Florida. Hopefully one of them can stick and make the final 53.

No matter who the Saints draft you have to trust what Jeff Ireland does because of how good he has been at picking good players that fit the Saints team. #contest

I also agree with the saints possibly going WR in the 2nd round, but in the end you are right... Gotta trust the front office to get it done this year, its going to be hell of a ride!

There is a lot of really talented WRs in this draft (Harry, Butler, Samuel, JJ, Ridley, Harmon) could possibly make it to Saints. Curious to see how the draft unfolds this year. I hate that we don’t have many high picks but I like who we got using those picks.

  • Saints vs Rams Predictions anyone? I feel as it will be mostly an offensive battle, but looking to see if we correct some of our week one mistakes with play calls, and also looking to see if Trey can dominate on the edge again as he did last week over davenport. Brees is going to be on fire with MT as this is a "Revenge" game after all. Yet it is only week 2 so nothing to go crazy over and we need to come out of this game healthy, and with a big ol 2-0 heading into next week. #Nutz4Lutz
  • So, we are getting ever closer to the 2019 season. What are everyone's honest thoughts on what the Saints will do in 2019? Personally I don't see us winning 13 games this year as we have a tough looking schedule. I see 11/12 wins, we will still win the NFC south as I don't think any of the other teams have improved enough. 12 wins could still give us home field advantage and if we get that again this year then for me the Superbowl is very much within our grasp. Roll on September!!
  • Whenever the NFL Draft comes around, there are certainties in life: 1. Saints are going to trade up 2. Saints will not address a position fans believe they really should address 3. Saints will screw up a linebacker pick 4. Saints will always have at least 1 UDFA RB & WR. One of those UDFA players that I am very curious about is Nebraska RB Devine Ozigbo. When doing a mock draft, he was often a common player that would I look up, and consider drafting as a RB3. When tracking Day 3, I saw his name still available as it went along, and just like that... the draft ended and he was still there. As soon as I saw it, I was hoping Saints would manage to get him as an UDFA (along with several others), and we did. When pondering why he became an UDFA, I looked at his film, and dug a little deeper into his scouting report. His key weaknesses were that he had not so good long speed, and had rather bad games against quality opponents (such as vs. Michigan St. and vs. Iowa), but his positives were that: he was proficient in pass pro, had good power, very little tread, had some receiving ability, and was very good in short yardage. Perhaps he'll be the one that could maybe beat out Dwayne Washington, or at least perform well enough to create a RB4.
