After two days of voting and a total of 147 votes, we now have the top five draft prospects for our Saints 2016 NFL Draft Big Board. Below are players 1 through 5, as chosen by Saints fans in the Canal Street Chronicles community, and their vote totals.

Breakdown of votes for
each ranking interval.
Player Name 1 2 3 4 5 Total
Joey Bosa, DE, Ohio State 43 19 9 6 8 338
Myles Jack, OLB, UCLA 17 16 37 12 5 289
DeForest Buckner, DE, Oregon 13 18 13 11 28 226
Jalen Ramsey, S, Florida St 10 30 9 6 4 213
Shaq Lawson, DE, Clemson 21 12 10 6 10 205

It''s no surprise that all five players are on the defensive side of the ball. And it's no less surprising that four out of five of them are pass rushers. But it's Ohio State's Joey Bosa that comes away the clear favorite among Saints fans. Bosa garnered a huge chunk of first place votes.

But the fun is just getting started. We'll begin voting for players 6-10 later today so check back in a little bit and help us continue creating our Saints Big Board.
