When the Saints selected offensive tackle Zach Strief in the seventh round back in 2006, he was a longshot to make the roster, but almost 10 years later, he's held down the starting right tackle position for nearly half of his tenure in the same role we could see rookie offensive tackle Andrus Peat play this year as the extra offensive lineman and in goal line plays.

Kristian: A surface review of the 2015 Saints draft class


While I don’t get into the grading of the draft until a full season with that class has been played, I will tell you what I like about this class on the surface.  The Saints didn’t have flashy picks. There wasn’t a lot of sizzle to this class, but there was plenty to like and a few things to dislike. Read More

Saints Defense

Saints use draft to double down on defense


The Saints took not one, not two, but three defenders in the 5th round.  They stood pat with their original two picks and then traded back into the end of the 5th to take one more. I love what the Saints did in this round.  By the 5th round, you're not going to get any immediate impact guys.

Marcus Murphy

Saints use final pick on Missouri RB Marcus Murphy

T-Bob: To Brees or not to Brees - when is the Saints question


Quarterback Garret Grayson was selected with the 75th pick on the 2015 NFL Draft and my computer almost exploded thanks to twitter.  The interesting aspect of this pick isn’t the player himself. Realize that the much more interesting point here is that the Saints took a quarterback in the third round. Read More
T-Bob's Take

T-Bob: Kikaha's past injuries not a predictor of success with Saints


The Saints just selected Hau’oli Kikaha with the 44th pick of the 2015 NFL draft.  While this isn’t a pick many people were talking about, there was one person who had it pegged from a mile away.  No, it wasn’t me.  As much as it pains me to admit it, it was my man Kristian Garic, the 13th best sideline reporter in the NFL.

Predictions for seven remaining Saints draft picks


The Saints have seven picks for the remaining six rounds, so let's take a look and see who they may select.  I won't be projecting any trades in the mock draft, but I wouldn't be surprised if the Saints moved up one or two times before the final pick is in. Read More

T-Bob: Andrus Peat helps Saints in both short and long term


The Saints selected Andrus Peat with the 13th pick in the 2015 draft and I fully support this decision.  In fact, I applaud the Saints for not overreaching for a pass rusher just because of their perceived need.  First off, if Junior Galette and Cameron Jordan can return to their 2013 form, the “need” for a pass rusher is already lessened greatly.
