NFL Draft Results 2015: Best Available Players After Rounds 2 & 3

New, comments

The Saints have four picks remaining in the 2015 NFL Draft. Here's a look at who they might target on the final day.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Rounds 1-3 are in the books and the Saints selected Washington OLB Hau'oli Kikaha in the 2nd round along with Colorado State QB Garrett Grayson and Florida State CB P.J. Williams in the 3rd. Today is the final day of the draft.

Kikaha attended Kahuku High on the North Shore of Oahu. The Kahuku Red Raiders had an annual tradition of traveling down to Honolulu every year and straight pantsing my high school's football team. They're perennially strong and to learn Kikaha, a sack machine and Hawaiian Thor, went there before terrorizing the Pac12 these past two seasons, is super exciting. Hopefully his knees hold up.

As for Grayson being the 3rd QB off the board - Brees isn't getting any younger (or prettier) and the alliterative GG looked pretty good at Colorado State. Not sure what more to make of this pick, however. Colorado State's last QB drafted was some guy named Bradlee Van Pelt in 2004 and before that some guy named Moses Moreno in 1998.

P.J. Williams was somewhat surprising. Before him, every player selected was squeaky clean, though P.J. has a few recent transgressions. Whatever. He's a very athletic and physical corner - Take that, Funchess! Motor and motivation (motorvation) was an issue in college. He can jump really high, though.

Take that, Benjamin!

The Saints have picks 5(148), 5(154), 6(187) and 7(230) remaining.

In the final day of the draft, the Saints will either trade up for one of the remaining smash mouth DTs (Bennett or Jarrett) or 6'7 Penn State TE Jesse James or, more likely, they will sit tight and continue with depth. Guard is a need as is WR. We got Stills in the 5th last year, so look for an attempt at a replacement for him there. He's a bit of a wildcard and we did just get Williams, but I'd be curious with Oregon CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu if he's sitting in the 6th. WR Rashad Greene sounds good - Jameis Winston certainly adored him.
