SI Mock Draft

With the Senior Bowl practices taking place this week, the NFL Draft discussions are heating up. Sports Illustrated's Don Banks posted his first mock draft of 2009 today.

Here's his take on the Saints selection:

14. OLB Brian Cushing, USC:
The Saints defense needs playmakers and Cushing is a versatile talent who can hold up in both run defense and pass defense, and he has a knack for coming up with the key play at the key moment. This could be a bit high for Cushing, but he's the kind of winning player some teams are willing to stretch a bit for.
