Williams to the Saints has been pushed by the media. John Clayton in particular.

It's a Best Available argument. The form of it is "if you have two pretty good outside linebackers, do you pass up drafting Lawrence Taylor?"

The guy is 295 lbs, 6'7", and has 4.6 speed.

Personally I'd still get Ferguson.

Back that up please. Brees' stats have be excellent the last two years. What evidence do you point to that makes you think that Brees is going to suck?

mangold is the only step in and start C IMO. he will probably get picked a little higher than he should as a result. i would be satisfied with a flanagan, mckinney, teague sort of pick up. draft one later and try to develop.

I now think we will trade farther down then before. I think there will be some lineman in our draft at the end of the first round and beginning of the second. Justice and Mangold would be solid additions and could step right in as well as Jean-Gilles from Georgia.

Mangold is expected to be drafted in the late 1st. The only way we get him is to trade up from our second pick into the late first round, which would require us to give up our second and something else. Since we don't even have a third, I don't see how it's possible without relinquishing half of our draft. Doing anything with our #2 overall to trade that low in the first round is totally out of the question, not to mention unfeasible.

TAKING A CHANCE ON SIMMONS

The Saints have come to terms with veteran outside linebacker Anthony Simmons and that signing certainly brings the Saints a player who was a Pro Bowl performer.

The question is how much gas the veteran has left in his tank after sustaining a few injuries and sitting out the 2005 season.

Simmons has started at both inside and outside linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks and at one time ex-Saints general manager Randy Mueller picked him as the most underrated "big-time" player in pro football.

"If I had a vote I would pick Anthony Simmons," Mueller told me during a lunch near draft time in 2002. "Anthony has to be handled just right, but he has the whole package you want in a linebacker. He’s fast, instinctive, he thinks quickly on his feet and he has a knack for finding a way to wedge himself into angles to get to the ballcarrier. He’s also a real good cover guy. He plays the game with a chip on his shoulder and some coaches don’t understand this and may take him wrong. He is not a bad person at all, but he needs to be handled the right way and I wonder if that will happen now in Seattle."

Let’s hope that the same Simmons Mueller talked about in early 2002 has many of those same traits left in 2006 for the Saints.

I am sure they got the best LBer they could get. I hope he is healthy and can help the team. I would like the current young players to play more and get better.
