if the Saints would pass on home town once in a lifetime type of player in Leonard Fournette I would DIE!! Mark Ingram hasn't shown to be all that great. We will likely have a new young QB in a few years and a BEAST back would do him wonders. Hell he may help Brees last a little longer in that he won't have to pass 100 times a game. Delvin Breaux, PJ Williams, DeVante Harris, Ken Crawley, Damian Swann, and Kyle Wilson will be plenty enough depth at corner. The 2 UDFA corners have played good considering they are undrafted. I think PJ was gonna have a good year before the devastating concussion. We are missing Sheldon Rankins right now and our top 3 corners. This D isn't as bad as most think, but the devastating injuries to all our corners have killed us, which would happen to every team out there. Plus I'm scared of Bama corners BIG TIME!! They seem to bust or take forever to produce!!
Yeah the Patriots are just clamoring for an interior offensive lineman. After all they have Thuney and Mason as starters at guard with Jonathan Cooper and Ted Karras as back-ups and have a very good center in David Andrews. What the Patriots need is an offensive tackle because Sebastian Vollmer ain't getting any younger and hasn't really been fully healthy the last two seasons. If there's a great prospect at OT at the end of the first round the Patriots should take him. You're out of your tree if you think the Patriot's greatest need is an interior offensive lineman.
Yet again, I will follow Walt's lead for this draft order outside the fact that the Bears land the top pick over the 49ers or Browns, I have more faith in Cutler running into wins before I do with Kessler or Gabbert. Also, there are still some players not in the system such as the Illini DEs, Justin Evans and Malik Hooker at safety. Until they are in I will mock without them.

Every NFL Draft analyst has a job: We analyze how the draft could play out and why.
One way to do this is through a mock draft.
I have one question, where is Mike Mayock's mock draft?
He is one of the two best NFL Draft analysts in the world along with Mel Kiper.
So, where is HIS mock draft?
Many people from NFL.com and the NFL Network have written mock drafts, yet none of them are true NFL Draft analysts. Jamie Dukes, Steve Wyche and Pat Kirwan are on this list. Why have they written mock drafts, yet arguably the most famous football analyst on the NFL Network, Mike Mayock, has put out nothing in terms of a mock yet?
I am not a Mayock hater at all. He is a pioneer in the industry and has gotten football analysis back to its roots, focusing on actual game tape and technique, as opposite to ESPN's formula of highlights and music, which interrupts the person talking and tries to make their channel as corny and fake as possible.
I am a big fan of Mayock's, but why hasn't he put out a mock draft yet?
It is an honest and important question. Every other draft analyst in the world has a mock draft, so why not him?
