Texans take Young, we take....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That's a good question. I would suppose you can't just be from anywhere. Players are invited to the combine, so unless you just show up with an agent and bully your way in, I don't know how you'd get to ...

That's a good question. I would suppose you can't just be from anywhere. Players are invited to the combine, so unless you just show up with an agent and bully your way in, I don't know how you'd get to perform. Then there are pro days, which are held by colleges. I don't think any college would allow just anyone to get in their pro day. You'd prob be a street FA, like beerman was if anything. I think the draft is just fro college players.

Glad you finally just admitted it. I knew this preposterous theory had to have some motivation.

Hey, how 'bout we draft Bush at #2 (assuming the Texans are dumb enough to draft Young at #1) & make a deal sending Aaron Brooks & Darren Howard to Atlanta for Matt Schaub. Now we've got a good QB, one hell of running game, & a 2nd & 3rd round pick to stiffen up the Defense. With the right GM (& a little luck), these deals can be done. There are a lot of good LB's in this years draft that will be there in the early second round. The best of which I believe is Bobby Carpenter (Ohio State). Many of us forgot about him, because he was hurt for the Notre Dame game. But, in the Texas & Penn State games (both big games~and losses) it was Bobby Carpenter (not A.J. Hawk) making the majority of big plays on defense.

This year, if done correctly, could be the best Saints draft ever!!!!

Just Brainstorming, guys.

I'm thinking in terms of a better overall draft. Picking Bush would give us an opportunity to have a better overall draft.

We have Deuce true. What's also very apparent is that Deuce has durability issues in his 6th year, and can't be depended on to last a full season carrying the load himself. Realistically he'll only have about 2 more years before he starts to decline, if he hasn't already started to. Not only would picking Bush retard that process, it would vastly improve the overall effectiveness of the entire offense. If you guys are listening to draft experts, they are saying that having a stud RB would not be a determining factor in drafting Bush or not. Bush will not be a 25-30 down back in the NFL. He will have to be supplemented by a cowbell RB(i think we have one of those). Can Bush become an everydown back....absolutely, but not right away. Putting him in the backfield w/an accomplished runner will allow him the learning curve to put on the extra weight he'll need to eventually carry the load on his own.

I think u have to think in terms of the overall draft instead of thinking about the first round. We would still be able to get a good QB in round 2. Would we be able to get anyone the caliber of Bush in the second? Not even close. Basically what im saying is

Rd. 1 - Reggie Bush
Rd. 2 - Best available QB

is much better value than

Rd 1 - Matt Leinart
Rd 2 - Best available RB
