Who Saints Could Be Targeting In The Draft

Auburn's Dee Ford... Yeah the guy that called out Jadeveon Clowney.
 
-4.53 time in the 40-yard dash:  same as Clowney
-10'4 " in standing broad jump: same as Clowney
-Busted MORE reps than Clowney in the bench press with 29 compared to 21.
 
 
 
He can patrol edges and drop back into pass coverage.
If he didn't participate in Auburn's Pro Day Tuesday, all 32 teams in attendance would not have been on hand to be 'wowed'.  Perhaps he would have snuck under the radar and slipped to the Saints with the 27th pick.  He would be a great fit as a 3-4 OLB.
He can be put on same side as Cameron Jordan and force teams
to play one side of the field.
 
Lucky Jack: East Illinios QB has quicker release than Marino.
 
Smart kid- is this the guy Saints draft to replace Brees eventually?
 
Fletch: Doubt it. Saints gave up a position to keep Tulane QB Ryan Griffin. And don't forget, Luke McCown is still around and is more than serviceable as backup.
If Saints are picking in 4th round and Mettenburger is there do they take him?
 
EH: When is the last time they drafted a QB that wasn't a free agent?
 
Transitional vs Franchise Tag: Difference?
Transitional: there is no negotiating with other teams average top 10, But team gets nothing from team that takes player
Franchise: guaranteed top 5 salary, Team gets draft trade if another team takes the player
