New, comments

We reveal players 6 through 10 for our Saints NFL Draft Big Board, as chosen by Saints fans.

After a week of voting and a total of 142 votes, we now have the next five draft prospects for our Saints 2016 NFL Draft Big Board. Below are players 6 through 10, as chosen by Saints fans in the Canal Street Chronicles community, and their vote totals.

Breakdown of votes for
each ranking interval.
Player Name 6 7 8 9 10 Total
Sheldon Rankins, DT, Louisville 29 35 14 13 12 365
Vernon Hargreaves, CB, Florida 20 11 9 11 10 203
Laquon Treadwell, WR, Ole Miss 13 7 10 7 11 148
Laremy Tunsil, OT, Ole Miss 13 14 5 3 5 147
Emmanuel Ogbah, DE, Oklahoma State 7 9 10 13 9 136

Our top five prospect list was heavily skewed toward pass rushers but now we're finally seeing a little mix of positions with a wide receiver, a tackle, and a cornerback on our list. Interesting that Sheldon Rankins comes in at No. 6 overall while A'Shawn Robinson hasn't even made the list year. That shows Rankins is obviously the clear favorite DT among the two. And obviously Saints fans would still take a talented wide receiver if he was available, even over a pass rusher like Emmanuel Ogbah.

We'll begin voting for prospects 11-15 very shortly so stay tuned.
