The Saints Nation:
As you know, each season I make a mock draft of my own for the entire first round but we're still a few weeks away from that. In the meantime, I participated in DraftSeason's Mock Draft over the weekend picking for the Saints. You can check out the entire 1st round mock by CLICKING HERE. Interesting to note that Barkevious Mingo of LSU went second overall, Kevin Minter of LSU went 20th overall to the Bears, Dion Jordan went 4th, Ziggy Ansah went 13th and Star Lotulelei went 14th. Those are all guys I had my eye on with the exception of Minter, though still notable because of his local ties. Sam Montgomery of LSU fell out of the first round.
I ended up going with...
Kenny Vaccaro, the safety out of Texas, with the 15th pick. I strongly considered Jarvis Jones (who went 18th) and Damonte Moore (who went 24th) but passed on them due to health concerns and poor combine performance respectively. You'll also notice a lot of really good players fell out of the first round in this mock, which I do think will happen even more so with the real draft because I think more quarterbacks will get drafted early. Too bad the Saints don't have a 2nd round pick to take advantage of. Thanks Roger. And more seriously, thanks to Matt Falk for including me on this mock!
Who would you have taken 15th based on what was available? Seems like many of you would prefer taking a chance of Jarvis Jones.
BEST OF MAXIM
Did you hear the one about LSU head football coach Les Miles resigning due for a bad Petrino-like affair with a student? And that he was resigning his HC job because of the story coming out? Well they're not true. Twitter ran amok with the story, but it was denied by LSU.
Talked to a source at LSU tonight.. there is no truth to that wild rumor.

It was 11 months ago that the college football offseason became really interesting thanks to motorcycle accident which ended up being the tip of the iceberg for an affair between an SEC coach and a much younger employee. Yesterday evening, thanks to Twitter, a silly rumor about LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles became a ‘story’ for about an hour or so. I follow thousands of people...
LSU Football Coach Les Miles Had an Affair? May Step Down? What the —-?
Rumors LSU football coach Les Miles had an affair blew up on Twitter Saturday night sending bloggers to their laptops and fans to their knees praying that the unsubstantiated rumor was just that—only a rumor.
There's a rumor (with no evidence) going around that Les Miles had an affair...
LSU briefly got to experience life with a winning SEC record. The Tigers won a closer game than it should have been Wednesday at home versus Arkansas, then dropped a tough game in a hostile gym at Missouri. LSU sits at 8-8 in conference with two games to go. If LSU can get one of the two, this season will be have been a success for first-year coach Johnny Jones.
The LSU Tigers' 2013 season-opening game is set. But the Aug. 31 Cowboys Classic against the TCU Horned Frogs won't be a walk in the park.
In his weekly LSU basketball column, TSD's Ben Love examines what the red-hot Charles Carmouche has meant to the Tigers this season and how Johnny Jones' style of play is translating into the SEC.
