Peter King MMQB

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Mario is the last guy I want us to draft but I'm not as opposed to taking him as I was a couple weeks ago. Making Mario a lb makes no sense to me though, why wasted a top 5 ...

Making Mario a lb makes no sense to me though, why wasted a top 5 pick on a guy and play him out of position? If we are going to draft Mario, rotate him at de with grant and smith or trade grant. I'm still favoring Hawk or Brick (I don't really care who), as long as we address the position not filled in the first round with our 2nd round pick.

why would you take a player who might have the fastest first step since Peppers, who is definately stronger than Peppers, and more stout at the point of attack, and turn him into a linebacker??? That's crazy.

B&B, give the man a prize.
You mean the boobie prize? We ran outta those when Halo re-opened admission :P

I say we go with Hawk!! We already have two quality DE's, and if Brown is already switching to Gandy's spot--we can draft in a later round for a tackle. We need a good LB!

Shawn Merriman is a big guy at LB, but he had a pretty good season by any standards.
But he also plays in a 3-4, and plays that outside rusher position, which is pretty much a stand up DE.

This is sort of my take. I mean yeah no one here has Mario Williams as our first choice in the NFL draft, but we have to somewhat prepare ourselves for the possibility that he might be taken by us. All the pissin and moaning in the world won't determine if he's on our roster or not. That being said, there's really no way to mess this pick up. While Super Mario would have the least immediate benefit of any of the players we would possibly take, this would hardly be an Alex Molden situation on our hands. By all accounts Williams is an absolute freak.
