Drafting Need VS Best Player Available

Posted 08-27-2016 at 07:10 AM by jeanpierre
Updated 08-28-2016 at 05:34 AM by jeanpierre

Well, the past two drafts we pretty much did do just that...

We needed an interior defensive lineman and took one in the first round - Sheldon Rankins (check)...

We needed a new "X" receiver and took one in the second round in Mike Thomas (check)...

We needed a Free Safety because the one we have loves the tub and we traded two picks (3rd (78th) pick and 4th (112th) pick) (check, but problem)...

This is where Loomis fails as a...

2016 Saints Free Agency - Best Remaining Options at Guard

Posted 04-05-2016 at 09:18 PM by jeanpierre
