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.
2009 NFL Draft Prospects: <br> Sen'Derrick Marks Profile
Strengths: Possesses compact strength and muscular thighs ... Extremely athletic ... Great short area quickness; displays a nice burst off the snap ... Nice technique; stays low ... Wide array of pass rush moves (rip, swim, bull, etc.) ... Grades out well on his long chase (run to sideline and make tackle); solid range ... Tough ... Shows upside in one-gap schemes ...High motor ... Instinctive ... Big time leader.
Weaknesses: Does not have a lot of mass and is going to struggle against bigger linemen ... Room to put on more bulk without losing quickness? ... Sometimes manhandled against the run; gets locked in and can't disengage ... Needs to improve hand placement ... Not versatile; only a 3-technique or situational pass rusher ... Disappears occasionally ... Comes with durability concerns.
Summary: Marks has your typical skill set of a highly athletic, smaller defensive tackle who is only going to play 3-technique in the pros, usually in the Tampa 2 defense. Auburn asked him to play defensive end in his first two seasons, but wasn't the monster statistically I thought he could have been. He is likely going to come off the board in the second or third rounds.
Player Comparison: Jonathan Babineaux. Babineaux was a highly productive player for the Falcons this year, excelling in the one-gap and breaking up plays in the backfield, but he is a huge liability against the run.
