Saints Mock Draft and Good Rationale for it!

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; TE/WR/HB/FB I so Love this guy. I think he is #2 on the impact list to me. He will be great and you can do so much with him in an offense it is sick. He is a Marshal Faulk ...

TE/WR/HB/FB I so Love this guy. I think he is #2 on the impact list to me. He will be great and you can do so much with him in an offense it is sick. He is a Marshal Faulk in a TE body. If he could play TB and R man he would be right next to Bush.
But the Needs list is to great at 4. swap #4 with SFat 6 and a 2or a 3, then pick him. U got a deal.
I would ? the move but I would have no Doubts the type of player we are getting. not like mario

i agree he is a great player but our needs list is way to large to be choosing a TE with our top pick...

your kidding me davis...we already have 5, count them 5 TE's on the roster...that is 2 or 3 too many if you ask, me i'd rather have a couple or one extra good CB with that money or a rotating fast LB that can run down a scrambling qb...We have Hilton and Conwell they are good enough to say thats all we need and Mier for a insurance policy on Conwell...Cleeland's replacemt in every sense of the word...

Trading down to Oakland at #7 is still too high to take a TE. It's a luxury position given the other holes this team needs to address to seriously compete.

If like I said end up with say SF or Oaklands pick I am all for it. That means we traded down twice and got a additional picks in the 1,2,3, and 4. Sure we miss out on talent but the additional picks would go far. Additional trades for picks involving players like the TEs would be fun to watch. Then we would see how good the FO and payton really are.

Hey all you loyal Saints' fans,
I like this board because there is usually plenty of good reading (whether or not I agree with it) to be found. A lot of people did not read my entire post but if you can hold your vomit try to. I addressed all of the glaring needs at Cornerback, D- Tackle and Field Stretching Tight End. I know that you all want the big names, but I want the players who can make plays regardless of what their name or position is. Yes we have glaring hole but with a good combination of team players we can really make some noise in the upcoming football year. Yes we have five tight ends but how many can stretch the middle of the field better than Shockey, Gonzales, and even Gates. We all know Brees and Payton love tight ends (no pun intended) so I'll even take a gamer like Dave Thomas (One of my favorites) just as long is the middle of the field is stretched.
You can have the Hawks, Williams and Fergusons (who are not bad choices whatsoever) but I would rather get VD!!!! Definitely no pun intended.
Hollar at you later fellow Saints' Fans.
19 Days and counting.

OK, so the beatdown on Davis at TE seems fairly unanimous, but who, then is our best value get at #4? Actually, we ain't traded yet, so #2? Williams has a great deal of juice at that pick, but a good (maybe not better, but good) case can be made for Ferguson. I don't see Hawk as of value at that point though, like many other folks out there.

I still see us trading down to #4, and yes, Davis is a REACH at that point. No TE should ever be drafted in the top 10 unless your name is....check that, none should.
