With the 32nd pick in the 2017 DBN Community NFL Mock Draft, the New Orleans Saints select...
Dalvin Cook, RB, Florida State
The selection and write-up were made by troy145:
I think I'll get some grief for this pick for being a homer, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever selected a Florida State player in my years of participating in the community mock. Dalvin Cook is just too good to pass up this late in the draft. Mark Ingram is a good, dependable RB. Dalvin Cook is a special, electric gamebreaker. I would've taken McCaffrey had he been available here as well given my faith in New Orleans' ability to make creative use of his talent, but I think that Cook can be used just as creatively.
With the Saints taking Jonathan Allen with the eleventh pick, I felt that the Saints' top need had been addressed. From here a CB would also be tempting but I think New Orleans can still get a talented corner prospect later in the draft - I don't believe they'll be able to get a truly special, game changing offensive star later in the draft.
Pokorny: The Saints might be a lost cause. Drew Brees is at the tail end of his career, and I attribute the majority of their offensive success to him. Their defense remains a constant liability and although Jonathan Allen was selected earlier in the first round by them, I think they should take someone else on that side of the ball. The Saints have already tapped the first-round running back pick too many times with Reggie Bush, and Mark Ingram.
The Cleveland Browns are up next, led by Ike5.
