The New Orleans Saints select....

Lavar Edwards, DE, Louisiana State University



Easy pick to make here. Lavar is easily one of the best values still on the board, is a Louisiana native, and has the lunch pail attitude you look for in a mid-round pick. He likely goes much higher in this year's draft if not for having both Mingo and Montgomery dominating time on the field and relegating Edwards to a reduced roll.

He was typically listed at 6'4", ~260 in college but weighed in at 277 for the combine. The Saints intend to see if he can put on another 10-15 pounds and become a 5-tech, where his height and motor will be valuable assets. While that transformation is in progress he will compete with Simon and Moore for rushing down snaps at OLB.
