If you want to run a 3-4 here and get back to dome patrol again. the draft will be nothing but defensive this year. That is what dallas has done last year. If that is the case do all you can to get both OU OLB in this years draft and trade up to get a MLB from Iowa in the second. so it will probly require 2 first and a high second to achive this. Forget about any 3, 4 or 5 picks this year. Alot of creative trading would have to happen but our FO can not do it i think. Unless we go for the only true NT in the draft and pass on AJ. I have read enough here to see that will never happen if this forum was the saints FO.
Me i would love to see it happen and trade/cut alot of the dead wood we have. Have some balls and go for it if you are. There will not be a defensive draft like this for a long time to come again. Else just plug the holes we have and fix the OL.

We definately need more LB's also if we're gonna' play a 3-4. Watson couldn't tackle my sister if she promised to give him some.
Dude, it's your sister.....

This may be true, but I don't think he or Bockwoldt could tackle J-Lo if she strolled by in a thong!!!!!

Damn there goes the rest of the LB core. Who can tackle then? If none of them skip the QB draft and and get some LBs. 3 to 4 of them

Im tellin you guys....we have Smith....and I dunno about you but I was impressed with Ronald McKinnon. Throughout every game in what was a looong and miserable season... RK was making solid hit after solid hit. The guy is a good tackler and a hard hitter. He would make a great ILB for the 3-4. Keep RK. Move Will Smith to OLB..and get a Normand hand of sorts and we will slowly get in the 3-4 business.

It's a great concept, but then we lose our stud DE.

Can McKinnon run the defense? I know he can hit, and is a decent tackler,, but I'm not sure he has the mental capacity.

BnB...Im not sure if he can "run" the defense but I do know that his number was everywhere on the field. I think he can do a great job of stuffing the middle in a 3-4 scheme. Draft Hawk...pick up a FA or 2 and defensively we could be in some serious business again.

Yeah, I could see him filling a roll similar to Vaughn Johnson. Johnson's strength was his run playing ability, and he was free from having to run the defense, with Mills right next to him.

Yeah, I could see that.
