Another version of SB Nation's 2011 NFL mock draft, another player selected for the Saints with the No. 24 overall pick. 

First, it was defensive tackle Corey Liuget. Then it was running back Mark Ingram. They followed that with defensive tackle Stephen Paea. Last time they went with defensive end Ryan Kerrigan. And now, it's Georgia's Justin Houston:

24. New Orleans Saints: Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia. The oft-overlooked pass rusher out of Georgia has experience playing in space thanks to Georgia's 3-4, and his versatility will be a big selling point for coordinator Gregg Williams.    

That's five different players after five mock draft versions. Added all up and they've got every significant position of need for the Saints covered. 

Apparently, however, it's only because the stock of each of the previous mock picks simply continues to rise. All four are already off the board by the time the Saints are on the clock in this latest version of SB Nation's mock draft. With fewer options than before, Justin Houston is their best player available. Important to note: Cameron Heyward and Muhammad Wilkerson were still available. 

Now what do you guys think? Are these SB Nation mocks indicative of what's happening in the real world?
