Streeter Lecka

After two days of voting and a total of 352 votes, we now have the top five prospects for our Saints 2014 NFL Draft Big Board. Below are the top five draft prospects on our Big Board, as chosen by Saints fans in the Canal Street Chronicles community.

Breakdown of votes for
each ranking interval.
Player Name 1 2 3 4 5 Total
Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson 63 66 42 18 20 761
Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina 101 34 9 13 9 703
Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo 24 39 48 33 21 507
Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State 24 21 25 16 20 331
Mike Evans, WR, Texas A&M 16 23 24 21 24 310

Not surprising that a wide receiver sits at the top of the list and another makes the top five, considering that wide receiver was chosen earlier by you guys as the top position of need for the Saints.

It's time to continue ranking individual draft prospects for the Saints and choose players to make up spots 6 through 10 on our Big Board. Below is a poll containing the next 25 draft prospects with the top five players above removed. We'll vote again and come up with the next five for our Big Board. Those would be the next five players we would like to see the Saints draft, in a vacuum, regardless of the situation. After that, we'll remove those five names and add five more, then vote for spots 11 through 15. We'll do this until we've got the top 30 or 40 players ranked. Maybe more if time permits.

Take talent, value, need, and character into account if you think the Saints should take these things in to account when drafting. If you always want the best player available simply rank your top 5 players available.

Players will receive 5 points for every first place vote, 4 for every second place vote, and so on. They will receive 0 points if they are unranked. Total points from all ballots will be added, and the 5 players with the most points will be taken out of the pool of available players and put up on the big board.

This is not a mock draft. You are not predicting what you think will happen. You are not thinking about other teams or their needs. Don't worry about who is available. Assume everyone you can vote for is available. Just rank your guys in the order you would like to see them drafted by the Saints.

Please vote only once.

Once again, we are using a voting system created by Chris Pokorny from Dawgs By Nature to do all of this, so major props go to him for putting this awesome tool together.
