Williams or Hawk?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Why would we even waste our top pick on a defensive end. We have two good ones now. We have to go with either Hawk or the Brick House....

Hawk. In the second either Winston, Greenway, Carpenter. Or maybe Maroney he may fall

Hawk was the 2nd best lb in his conference last year.
Hawk is better than Posluszny

Very true. Protect your investment, or make a poor defense better?

Well, we need to trade down and get at least another 2nd rounder. In case any of you guys haven't noticed, we don't have a center. However, a very good one might be available at #34 in Nick Mangold. I say Hawk, Mangold, and then either Winston or another LB with the other 2nd round pick.

I think any time you start drafting for need instead of BPA you get in trouble. If the Saints trade down, and Mario Williams is still there, you have to take him. By taking Williams, you are getting the best defensive player in the draft, and he would be an upgrade from Charles Grant. The defense will be better if Williams is the pick. And, if the Saints ever decide to move to a 3-4 both Williams and Smith are suited to play the outside LB spots. Hawk will be good, but I think he'll slide out of the top 5.

Definitely trade down and take Hawk... were talking about an impact LB, something we havent had since the dome patrol days. I know Mark Fields was a ProBowler and yadda yadda... but I dont think hes in the same class as those guys... they all went to the ProBowl, the same year!! Man, I'd love to see something like that again

I have always preached defensive speed. If Hawk's 4.38 in the 40 is true? No question we get Hawk.
