Hand a Seahawk?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I hope we can keep Sullivan away from the fried foods of New Orleans better than we did with Hand and Jackson! Second rounder should have been cornerback not tackle. Should have taken Brady James in the 4th round right ...

Hand a Seahawk?

I hope we can keep Sullivan away from the fried foods of New Orleans better than we did with Hand and Jackson! Second rounder should have been cornerback not tackle. Should have taken Brady James in the 4th round right before Dallas took him. 3rd rounder has real potential if coached up properly. Cie could be the steal of this draft if he will listen to coaching. I give the draft a B overall. We need to focus on signing Horn and another linebacker after June 1st.

We still need some help at CB, I believe. But i think I could scream for the next year and we would not get it.

I\'m perfectly ok with our draft. You say we need help at CB? Well, we just got it. We signed a DT who, if he plays as expected, will help get pressure on the QB thus helping the CBs.

Another thing... there\'s been a lot of complaining about the OL picks, but what most people tend to overlook is that OL is THE most important group on the team. We can never have enough good OL-men. My only problem with Stinchcomb is that we probably could have moved back some spots and picked up another 4th and still gotten him. Otherwise, here is a guy that in 2004 will have a year of learning under his belt and could come in and replace an aging veteran.

Hey don\'t forget about Whitehead and Smith. I would like to see an established DT come here before the season starts, but if not, all might not be lost. Whitehead is very Glover-like to me. We may lose some run support with him in the middle, but he is quick and can certainly get after the QB. If he can add some weight he may just end up playing there for good. Kenny Smith may also develop too. The guy\'s only been here, what, a year or two. Give him some time, he may turn out OK. Bottom line, I would like to see another good DT on this team, but if not, I think we\'ll be OK up front. Grant, Sullivan, and Howard should make life for whoever plays in the fourth DL spot much easier.

Sullivan will help the pass rush no doubt, henceforth helping push the opposing QB to make a bad decision, helping the secondary. But untils he rushes the QB and then defends the WR 15 yards downfield at the sametime, we will still need someone to cover the quicker WRs
