The NFL Draft is upon us. Can you feel the excitement? I know, I know, the New Orleans Saints haven't had much to get excited about since, oh, I don't know, Drew Brees broke Dan Marino's passing record in late December. That was so 2011.
The Saints are without their first two picks in the first couple of rounds and don't draft until the 89th pick in the third round. Myself and Jordan Grove of SaturdayNightSlant.com were chosen to man the Saints war room in Mock Four, the best interactive mock draft around. A few of our targets went off the board right before we picked a couple of times, but I think we came away with a solid group of competitors.
NOTE: We traded down from our first pick twice, once with the Buffalo Bills an again with theCleveland Browns early in the fourth. In doing so, we went from five picks to eight picks, including four fifth-rounders.
