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.
Oklahoma City Thunder: Alex Abrines, SG, Spain, 6-5, 1993
With its third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, Oklahoma City goes the foreign route with a draft-and-stash prospect.
Cleveland Cavaliers: Isaiah Canaan, PG, Murray State, 6-0, Sr.
The Cavaliers don't have a true backup to Kyrie Irving, so Isaiah Canaan makes sense here.
Houston Rockets: Archie Goodwin, SG, Kentucky, 6-5, Fr.
The Rockets don't have much depth at guard behind James Harden and Jeremy Lin, and Archie Goodwin would be a great value this low. Houston GM Daryl Morey loves value.
Portland Trail Blazers: Grant Jerrett, PF, Arizona, 6-10, Fr.
A stretch four who is nowhere near ready to contribute right away, Jerrett will spend some time in the D-League. He does have solid potential though.
Memphis Grizzlies: James Southerland, SF, Syracuse, 6-8, Sr.
With limitless range from the outside, James Southerland could find a home at the next level due to his ability to stretch defenses.
Milwaukee Bucks: Carrick Felix, SG, Arizona State, 6-6, Sr.
By addressing their point guard need in the first round, the Bucks should look to add depth at the two.
Dallas Mavericks: Mike Muscala, PF/C, Bucknell, 6-11, Sr.
The Bison big is an inside/outside threat who adds needed size to the Mavericks.
Portland Trail Blazers: Livio Jean Charles, F, France, 6-9, 1993
With three second-round picks, the Trail Blazers should take at least one foreign prospect. Jean-Charles caught the attention of NBA scouts at the Nike Hoops Summit.
Utah Jazz: Ryan Kelly, PF, Duke, 7-0, Sr.
The former Blue Devil is a stretch four who would add more insurance in case the Jazz loses Jefferson or Millsap via free agency.
Atlanta Hawks: Myck Kabongo, PG, Texas, 6-3, Soph.
The Hawks could be losing Devin Harris in free agency so another point guard would make sense.
Los Angeles Lakers: Kenny Kadji, PF, Miami, 6-10, Sr.
The Lakers could be looking for size inside with Dwight Howard's possible exit. Kenny Kadji has good size and the ability to stretch defenses with his perimeter shooting.
Chicago Bulls: Alexandre Paranhos, SF, Brazil, 6-9, 1992.
The Bulls were one of a few teams to work out the Brazilian. They view him as a draft-and-stash prospect.
Atlanta Hawks: Andre Roberson, SF, Colorado, 6-7, Jr.
A tremendous athlete, Andre Roberson was a prolific rebounder at the college level who is still improving his perimeter shooting.
Orlando Magic: Ray McCallum, PG, Detroit, 6-2, Jr.
Ray McCallum would be an option to backup Jameer Nelson since Beno Udrih is a free agent.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Solomon Hill, SF, Arizona, 6-7, Jr.
The Wildcats senior is a versatile wing who can do a little bit of everything on the floor, but doesn't excel in any one particular area.
Indiana Pacers: Erik Murphy, PF, Florida, 6-9, Sr.
Murphy's inside/outside ability makes him an intriguing prospect despite his lack of NBA athleticism and the Pacers could lose David West via free agency.
Washington Wizards: Marko Todrovic, C, Montenegro, 6-11, 1992
The Wizards go the foreign route with their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.
Memphis Grizzlies: Vander Blue, SG, Marquette, 6-5, Jr.
Blue is a tremendous athlete and showed strides this past season with his perimeter game as well. The Grizzlies could use depth at the two since Tony Allen is a free agent.
Detroit Pistons: Nemanja Nedovic, G, Serbia, 6-4, 1991
The Pistons could use their third pick of the 2013 NBA Draft on a "stash overseas" option.
Phoenix Suns: Will Clyburn, G/F, Iowa State, 6-7, Sr.
The Suns add another wing scorer.
San Antonio Spurs: Bojan Dubljvic, PF, Serbia, 6-10, 1991
The Spurs have had luck drafting and stashing late picks in the past ... worth a shot again.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Raul Neto, PG, Brazil, 6-2, 1992
The Timberwolves go the foreign route with their fourth pick of the 2013 NBA Draft.
Memphis Grizzlies: Augusto Lima, F, Brazil, 6-11, 1991
With their third pick of the second round, the Suns select a stretch four who could develop overseas and possibly contribute down the road.
