Davis?????

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Kellen Winslow Jr was a cant miss prospect 3 years ago. He was the next great thing. Hurt his first two years. There is no such thing as a cant miss prospect....

Kellen Winslow Jr = stupidity that does not count
none of the above mention even came close to doing the things he did with much less offensive support or at the combine. keep trying to convience me otherwise. his up side is only overshadowed by bush. nothing is sure but he is such a good weapon all over the field

Shockey has been a staple with the giants, Gates (though undrafted) has done wonders in SD, Shannon Sharpe was the MAN in Denver, and Gonzalez is a great weapon in KC! Davis would definitaly give Brees a "Gates" type option in NO. Add Hilton for a 2 TE set and that is a major mismatch for any D to contend with. While I think Hawk or D'brick would be the better pick I don't think I'd complain if the Saints draft Davis.

Me either, but I would prefer Haloti Ngata. It is our biggest need & at that point Ngata, Vernon Davis, & Michael Huff would be the best available players. I still want Hawk though, so I hope we don't go down that far unless Ditka makes the deal for Oakland.

see the problem i have with taking ngata is that DTs taken in the first round are more likely to bust in my opinion... i might be wrong i havent really checked the % of first round DTs who arent but they seem more often then not to me...

Funny... I just heard Mel Kiper say today on ESPN that the biggest 1st round bust percentages are from defensive linemen. Guess what position had the next highest bust percentage? Yep, Tight Ends.

Davis in the first? Um, no thanks. How many playoff wins Gates, Gonzales, Shockey etc. have? Pittsburgh won with a rookie TE playing, who isn't even considered in the same league as Vernon Davis. I will admit Davis is a freak, but he's not a freak for this team. I just jeep wondering why noone is willing to give our offensive players a chance with a good QB. I don't think ANYONE on this offense can be judged fully coming from having Brooks as a QB, except Joe Horn, who had the benefit of 85% of the passes going his way. LEt's see how Hilton does with a QB who knows what touch is, and knows a 6'8" TE can't catch fastballs low and away. I know we don't have a lot of depth, but you don't spend a top 10 pick in the draft on depth, that's what the second day is for. No thanks on Davis.
