What's the feeling on Andrew Whitworth?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Include me in the "trade down to four with the Jets and take Hawk" fan club. Provided we pick up a 3rd rd pick, and Whitworth's available what's the opinion on him stepping in at RT? I'm sure a lot ...

What's the feeling on Andrew Whitworth?

Include me in the "trade down to four with the Jets and take Hawk" fan club.

Provided we pick up a 3rd rd pick, and Whitworth's available what's the opinion on him stepping in at RT? I'm sure a lot of people on here have watched a lot of LSU games over the last four years and have seen what kind of player he is.

I would really like to see him in the black and gold.

RE: What

i think he would make a solid RT but not a LT... good late 2nd early 3rd round pick

First time ever, agree with pak. Solid 3rd rounder as a RT.

Here's another vote for drafting Whitworth with a 3rd round pick (if we get one). I think second round would be a little high for him, though.

First day pick seems a little high. I'd be ok with 5-6th for him.

As a tactic to pacify all the homers, I don't think its a good idea. We could draft all LSU players all the time and bubbas still won't buy season tickets.

I would take Whitworth if we had a pick at the end of the second round and definitely if we had one in the 3rd. He could be my right tackle any day. He played 50 something games at left tackle for an SEC powerhouse and was fantastic. He has got to have some kind of ability.

I agree, but his stock has fallen since the Senior Bowl & NFL combine. In the Senior Bowl, he got beat like he stole something & he didn't have an impressive combine. He should be there in the 3rd & I think with work he could be a solid RT. Of course, I am LSU alum. so I am bias.

The combine is so overrated. I will take my chances with the player who has done it on the field instead of the "workout warrior" who bench presses 700 pounds and high jumps 50 inches. Give me the football player. Not the freak.

One more note on this player. If he didn't play for the team in baton rogue, no one would have posted this thread and we wouldn't hear a word about him this draft season. He's just not that special.
