Another need

I think this is the first year since the mid 90's that i havent said the Saints should take a cornerback in the first round, but boy, it sure seems like we could use some help there. With rumors of us moving Dwight Smith, and the fact that we have Craft, F. Thomas, J. Thomas, and McKenzie...dont you all think the Saints should make it a point to address this situation relatively early in the draft?

maybe because we pick so high this year as opposed to picking in between 12-20 like we do every other year. But you cant argue that the saints shouldnt think about adding someone like Joseph or Cromartie or Youboty...one has to fall to round 2 and i think the saints would be wise to take one.

They have more corners this year that can play either corner or safety. That's really the difference and some of these guys are big which I like. I would love to have a CB in the first day of the draft

we need o-line help. we need a d-tackle. we need linebackers and we need a corner. if we can help at two of those 4 spots i think it will be good

If we add a CB it needs to be Nate Clements. None of the CBs in this draft can step in and be a solid guy past the nickle spot. I am alot happier this year though with our situation (hidesight is 20/20 on guys named Fahkir Brown), but I still think we need a more solidified position onthe other CB. Commit to Smith or get someone.

Yeah we have to address our OL first and foremost... then work on the upfront DL and LB's. We have to stop the run, we have to be able to run, and we have to get a solid rush, that would help the CBs until we can get some new ones...

To be honest, i would rather give Stinchcomb a go at right tackle and pursue a right tackle in the 4th round and go with a CB on day 1. Fred Thomas and Jason Craft just dont do it for me. We can get someone in round 2 that can be an upgrade at least in the nickle package.
