The New Orleans Saints will be on the board with their draft pick from the Jimmy Graham trade to the Seattle Seahawks. In that trade the Seahawks also got back center Max Unger, with the 31st pick could also be used to upgrade the offensive line even more.

Ereck Flowers from Miami would be a great pick for the Saints, as they are undergoing a philosophy change from a pass-heavy offense to a run-first offense.

Flowers could be plugged in on the offensive line to help create holes for running back Mark Ingram. He would also be able to give some more protection for Drew Brees, who in his best seasons was helped by a great offensive line. That great offensive line has diminished over the past few seasons, but drafting Flowers would help get the unit get back heading in the right direction.

The Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots took a few hits to their defense this offseason. The biggest loss to their team was Darrelle Revis’ departure back to the Jets. Revis helped improve the Patriots’ defense, and now they will need to replace him.

Marcus Peters from the University of Washington will be a great pick for the Patriots, as Peters could be the best cornerback in the NFL Draft.

The reason why Peters isn’t being drafted higher in the draft is because of behavioral issues at Washington. Peters would be suspended one game in 2014 for a sideline tirade, and then would later be kicked off the team for getting into multiple confrontations with assistant coaches.

Peters has been a player-maker at the cornerback position, as he has 11 interceptions in three seasons. Peters could be a great option for the Patriots to replace Revis, as although its a risk, Peters’ upside would be hard to pass up.
