It's going to be murder.....

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; the next three weeks. Thank God there's a mini-camp or something in between to keep us occupied. I don't anticipate much movement on the FA front. I also don't think a trade will be announced, if there is a trade, ...

It's going to be murder.....

the next three weeks. Thank God there's a mini-camp or something in between to keep us occupied. I don't anticipate much movement on the FA front. I also don't think a trade will be announced, if there is a trade, until after Texas makes their pick or trade announcement. Why? Because the Saints would be absolutely insane to make the trade prior to the draft. I'm sure they'll pick Bush if he's available unless they're so in love with Super Mario, DaBrick, Hawk, or someone else. So hang in there...listen to all of the noise about one player or another and stock up on whatever it is you like to drink because one thing is for sure, Saturday, April 29th is going to be an exciting day for Saints fans all over the world!

RE: It

The way Mel Kiper keeps talking, it sounds like we're going to draft Mario Williams. I think that would be one of the worst moves ever, for obvious reasons, but that's all Kiper's been freakin talking about for the last couple of weeks.

Deuce....I'm just curious. Why, if we really need some DL help, would getting Mario be a bad idea?

Cause he's a DE. Why in the world would we take ANOTHER DE, and then try to move him to DT. We tried that with Darren Howard, and Charles Grant. No thanks. I'd rather trade downand get bunkley or Ngata, who are DTs and are built like DTs if we are gonna go that route. Forget Mario. You know who's on the other side of Peppers? Mike freaking Rucker. That guy blows. But Peppers still gets his. We have a Peppers in Will Smith AND we have a guy who is better than Rucker in Charles Grant. If we want a DT, draft one. But NO WAY on taking a DE, and converting him to DT or using him in a rotation, that high in the draft. No thanks.

Hey whodi.....I posted this idea on another thread. Why not make him a LB? I mean at 6'7 the guy would do enough damage just for visibility purposes alone....let alone pass rushing and run coverage.
Food for thought.

mario wouldn't be my first option, but wouldn't be a bad pick either. it would give the saints the ability to rotate 3 DEs throughout the game to keep them fresh. will and mario could be used more on passing downs and charles and will on rushing downs. either way...having fresh DE's in the 4th quarter to wear out OT's would be great.

this would also limit the rookie growing pains mario might experience.

At 6'7" 295? No way in hell would I do that. Has there been a 295 LB in the NFL since Levon Kirkland? And I think he only topped 275.

I don't think there is any way int he world you take a DE for a rotation at number two in the draft.
