If LB is not one of our biggest needs now, I don't know what is. Maybe DT, maybe OT or OC. But I would think that looking at our piss poor linebacking corps (Watson, McKinnon, Bockwoldt [who by the way is just awful], Melton), LB has to be our biggest area of need. Fujita can play, and I think that Watson is a decent starter, but he could be upgraded, and we definitely need another guy who can play.

BMG, I think you read my mind. I'm not saying I want to draft Mario Williams, (I'd rather have Hawk or Ferguson now) but IF they did draft him, it could very well mean the Saints are making the switch to a 3-4. They could move Williams or Smith to OLB with Fujita on the other side. That would leave whoever is left out of Williams and Smith to play end, Grant on the other end, and a cluster of people for the middle. Courtney Watson could flourish in a 3-4 at ILB with another strong veteran player there. However, the Saints lack a true nose tackle for the system. There are many scenarios that can be played out. Things are getting extremely interesting.

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

D_it_up, We're definately on the same page. I think if we were serious about converting to the 3-4, we would have made a real move on Kemoeatu from the Ravens.

As of now, the only guys I can think of that could anchor the NT are Sam Adams (maybe), Grady Jackson (think he'd really talk to the Saints again?) or drafting Ngata. I'm not opposed to switching over, but without a true NT, I don't think we can justify taking Mario. He's an exciting player, but not so exciting that I want 3 elite players sharing 2 spots.

The only other scenario I can see is us dealing Charles Grant (which I'm not in favor of at all). Grant is worth a 1st round pick. In that scenario we might be able to swing Mario and Ngata in round 1 and pick up the best LB left in round 2.

OK,

I haven't heard any talk of who would want Brooks if we signed Brees in the past few days. Are we planning on keeping Brooks in case Brees' shoulder can't take the enormous amount of sacks he will endure from our crap O-line? The trade with the Jets would be great so we can get Fergeson, that freak TE from the combine, and hopefully Mangold along with a couple LBs.
