Breakdown of votes for
each ranking interval.

To view our 2014 NFL Draft Community Big Board for the Saints in it's entirety click here. We will continue to update that as we go along and it can always be found on the cover of our front page from now until the draft.

It's time to continue ranking individual draft prospects for the Saints and choose players to make up spots 21 through 25 on our Big Board. Below is a poll containing the next 25 draft prospects with the 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 26 through 30. 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.
