2012 NFL Mock Draft: FC Community Draft Results for the New Orleans Saints

The past few weeks Bleacher Report NFL Featured Columnists have taken part in a Community Mock Draft, one meant to closely resemble the NFL Draft. 

As with any mock draft format, it can never be authentic to that which it is intending to replicate. But it has been similar enough that the Bleacher Report Featured Columnists undoubtedly feel confident enough to walk in to their respective team's headquarters and speak as if they could take over that team's GM job should an unusual event take place. 

Put it this way: that was my goal for this draft process. I want to be No. 1 on Tom Benson's speed dial, should he decide that Mickey Loomis is no longer the guy to call the shots for this Saints franchise. 

Handcuffed by a lack of picks (for which one could actually put all the blame on Loomis if they so choose) I think I, along with fellow Saints' Featured Columnists Jonathan Peralta and Jake Martin, did quite well to represent the New Orleans Saints and acquire the kind of talent this team needs to stay on top of the NFC South and in contention for Super Bowl titles. 

It is important to note that unlike most mock drafts we did not have the luxury of selecting our dream player, but were put in the limitations of what other GMs did with their picks. Thus targeted players such as Chandler Jones, Brandon Boykin and Markelle Martin were all selected before the Saints had a pick. And though trades were allowed, the Saints were not in a position to make such a move to jump ahead to grab one of those players. 

Without further ado, let's take a look at the picks of the New Orleans Saints.
