The New Orleans Saints, with 'The Curse' in the role of GM, are up in the 2014 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft. With that pick, the Saints have selected Florida State wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin.

'The Curse' explains:

Mickey Loomis must be scratching his head at this point in the BBV draft as his biggest needs after free agency are center, cornerback and wide receiver. Unfortunately, Loomis has nobody but himself to blame for putting himself in this painful position of only have 3.5 million in salary cap space left (that's if Graham signs the tender or even worse wins his grievance adding another five million to his franchise tag) and that must go towards signing his draft picks.

The two most glaring needs are at center and linebacker and while Martin and Richburg are nice players they certainly are not of value at here at the 27th

With the 27th pick, Drew Brees gets a dynamic and massive red-zone target opposite Jimmy Graham with Kelvin Benjamin from FSU. The 6-foot-5, 235-pound Benjamin has excellent hands, tracks the ball well and is an above average blocker in the run game. Benjamin has shown great speed on vertical routes and shown a Plaxico-like ability to win jump balls in any situation but like most big men must work on his ability to get lower prior to and after his breaks to improve his route running. Benjamin does get a case of the drops and has issues with balls thrown low but with the pinpoint accuracy that Brees has it should not be an issue.
