After peppering in a few offensive players in spots 5 through 10, we're clearly back on the defense wagon with all five players playing on the defensive side of the ball, and four of them being defensive linemen. I am kind of surprised to see Noah Spence make it to the 11th overall spot on our Big Board, considering his off-field issues. I guess Saints fans don't give a crap about that kind of stuff. Also surprising is Andrew Billings and Vernon Butler both being ranked higher than A'Shawn Robinson, who has regularly been mocked to the Saints for the past two months with their 12th overall pick.
We'll begin voting for prospects 16-20 very shortly so stay tuned.
