NFL Mock Draft Database Post-Combine 2013: New Orleans Saints

New, comments

The list of potential first round draft picks for the Saints has been significantly narrowed in our updated post-Combine collection of mock drafts.

Jerry Lai-US PRESSWIRE

With the 2013 NFL Combine in the rearview mirror it's time to see exactly how it's changed the mock draft landscape for the New Orleans Saints.

So I went ahead and updated our collection of 2013 NFL mock drafts from around the web that was first started February 11th. We're down to just 20 different mock drafts from our original 40 after eliminating all that were outdated. The 20 remaining mock drafts that make up the database have all been updated since the NFL Combine in late February.

Incredibly, all but one of those mock drafts (95%) believe the Saints will select a defensive player to help improve the pass rush. Unlike the first version of our database, there are only a handful of different players being mocked to the Saints and they're all DE/OLB hybrids. In fact, the consensus agrees it's just a four horse race between Barkevious Mingo, Dion Jordan, Jarvis Jones, and Ezekiel Ansah.

Below is the completely sortable database. Simply click the category heading at the top of each column to sort by that category.
