2013 New Orleans Saints: Mock Draft 2.0
Examiner.com

It's never a dull day in New Orleans sports, huh, Who Dat Nation?

On a day when most of the city was focusing on the rebranding of the New Orleans Hornets, Sean Payton had other ideas.

Just a few hours after the "Pelicans" were born, the newly reinstated coach started dropping the hammer, and the casualties were defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo and secondary coach Ken Flajole.

Not only did Payton cut dead weight, but he also announced that his defense will be transitioning to a 3-4 for the first time in New Orleans since the "Dome Patrol" roamed around in the late 80s-early 90s.

That last bit of news kind of throws my draft board for this team out the window, on the defensive side.

There's no doubt that there's much more 3-4 talent in this draft than 4-3, but the real reason puzzle is: Who stays and who goes? Who fits into this type of scheme?

Those questions can be saved for another time. Now is the time to see what a Saints draft could look like with a new "rebrand" of their own.
