2016 NFL Mock Draft: Big boys dominate first round
By Brian Miller
New Orleans Saints
Andrew Billings – DT – Baylor
Yes, the New Orleans Saints can’t cover any receiver in the NFL but they also can’t get enough push from the defensive line which gives opposing quarterbacks far too much time in the pocket. Billings is powerful defensive lineman who uses his legs and arms well to get upfield push. It’s something the Saints currently don’t have. If Hargreaves is still on the board they will likely go that route but it’s too high to take Kendall Fuller or Tre’Davious White at this point.
Offensively the Saints are mess as well but no tight-end has earned a top-15 pick this year and the Saints offensive line issues can be taken care of later. The Saints must make defensive additions early in this years draft. New Orleans is watching its offense age by the second, but the cap situation is rancid and the defense is the bigger problem at the moment.
