My vote is for Josh Jackson just off the top of my head, but I just go based on what I read. I don’t watch college ball

Jaire Alexander, Louisville

 

In this scenario I go corner and Alexander is my guy. He has the press ability, instincts, swagger, physicality, speed and ball skills that the Saints covet.

I'm going Alexander also

Alexander would be my pick after Hubbard. So here is the question, folks. Lets say we pick Alexander. And he balls out. And Lattimore and Williams continues to ball out. And Crawley continues his good play. And PRob continues what he has been doing...guys we need a nickname for this secondary quick. We gotta be prepared.

I like the direction here. And as much as I love "Neaux Fly Zone" I can hear Denver fans crying about it already xD

I gave a ton of consideration to South Carolina TE Hayden Hurst here too but in the end this is a deep and talented corner class but its not top heavy. I actually believe that Alexander could go much earlier. Still, while I like Crawley I dont think hes a lock as the starter in 2018, the Saints likley want to bring someone in to really challange him for that spot. Lattimore and P-Rob are locks on the edge and slot but I do see a need at the corner position this year.

Leaving this right here to help my point.

Like I said before, I feel this is a deep corner class and yes Oliver is a late 1st early 2nd guy IMO. I love his overall length and technical approach to the position but here's why I have Alexander as a better prospect...

 

One of the lesser talked about skills of a corner and the one that is a high piorioty on my grading scale is quickness and fluidity. Many in scouting call this the sticky gene, meaning does the prospect have the ability to stick in the hip pocket of a reciever and track him all over the field therefor always putting himself in position to make a play in man coverage. Alexander is excellent in this attribute while Oliver tends to struggle a bit in this area which like Ken Crawley tends to lead to getting handz that will lead to PI in the NFL as Crawley has found out. 

 

Still, Each of these corners bring their own skill set to the table and Oliver's wingspan and ability to make plays that he appears to be out of position on reminds me of Richard Sherman.
