Who are the best defensive players in the 2015 NFL draft?

The Saints are going to draft DEFENSE DEFENSE DEFENSE in this draft. That much we know. But who are the best defensive players anyway? I’ve listed twenty below, many of which we should be considering for the Saints at both 13 and 31 overall. These are the top 20 defensive players in the NFL draft […]

Saints Nation Mock Draft 3.0

It’s been about a month since I did my last mock draft and the time feels right to offer up a new one now that we’re inside 2 weeks away from the big day. Much like last time I’m going to use the Fanspeak Draft Simulator because I know you don’t care who the other teams select. Instead […]


Brian’s rules for drafting part 2

There is always a ton of debate within a teams fanbase on what position should be taken and who the best fit is for their team (at least for the teams first round pick). Rule number one for me is ‘know your team'; simply put it means you dont take players high in the draft […]

Brian’s rules for drafting

As the night of the Draft approaches, you can expect the number of ‘final’ mock drafts to increase, pet theories and conspiracies to run rampant, and various other ways for all of us interested in it to do our best Miss Cleo impersonations. The truth is that none of us have any idea how the […]

Anthony Spencer missing piece to Saints free agency

I know what some of you are thinking. So let’s get this out of the way. Anthony Spencer is older now, he had microfracture surgery on his knee which devastates the vast majority of NFL careers. If you don’t believe that, just ask Jonathan Vilma. Spencer played the majority of 2014 but he wasn’t the […]


Mailbag: Twitter Questions

I feel like the overwhelming majority of you guys that read this website (and on twitter) always ask great questions. It makes for better conversation to have a high yield of intelligent Saints fans.

Jimmy Graham not feeling so welcomed in Seattle?

I’m sure most of you stumbled on this yesterday. Michael Bennett is standing by his comments that Jimmy Graham is “soft” and “overrated”. The quotes are the following: “I still feel the same way. I mean, just because he’s on my team I don’t stop feeling that way.” “Obviously, I’m going to be a better […]


Hidden gems in the second and third rounds for Saints draft

I have pretty much exhausted my list of ‘credible’ prospects (in my mind at least) for the Saints to take in the first couple of rounds after these next four.  It is my honest belief that the Saints need one homerun out of their first three picks and two guys who can play. If they […]

Don’t expect the Saints to draft a character red flag, ever

Lots of chatter recently I’ve seen online (and on twitter) center around the question of whether or not the Saints would take guys like LB Randy Gregory, CB Marcus Peters and WR Dorial Green-Beckham. If you’ve never heard of these players, they’re all three considered some of the best prospects at their position but their […]
