I agree with you on the 2nd round pick, a typical Saints pick. I was just referring to the fact that we should be real excited about Reggie and not let a stupid 2nd round pick totally ruin our day. Sure it was a dumb pick but I'm not going to let it ruin the drafts first day because we did get Faine atleast. I'm curious to hear the Saints comment on Harper and explain to us their logic.

I have no problem with the Reggie Bush pick. In all honesty, there's nothing else we could have done. To pass up on Reggie without trading would be even worse than Houston passing up on him. Granted, I would have liked a trade more, but I am assuming that we weren't getting any legit offers. So basically, the Reggie pick is fine with me. He's an amazing athlete, and now with him and Brees, we have two new guys who are some of the most exciting athletes New Orleans has seen in a long time.

However, that being said, the Roman Harper pick is absolutely awful. Unless I'm missing some fundamental piece of information like Dwight Smith is now a CB (which I don't think I am), this pick makes little to no sense to me. He has limited upside. He is not a great athlete. He does not play anywhere near a position of need for us. Yes, I will say that he is a very smart player and seems to have great intangibles, but from what I understand, he probably would have been there in the 4th round. Unreal, great job Saints.

Another thing, I like getting Jeff Faine. Yes, he might not be as good as our previous center. But we did manage to turn one pick into two players, even though one of those seems like total crap right now.

Overall: C+

I hope that Roman guy isn't on this site...!!! Man, the guy would probably feel like a big A-hole!

No, I think Roman is smiling from ear-to-ear. Nothing against the guy - he's a good player, qualified for the NFL. But he was projected for the third or fourth round. He's not a #43 pick. And worse, he's not a need position (of which we have so many).

I like the avatar dberce. I tried to get a Reggie avatar right after we drafted him but clearly I have no clue how to do it. I downloaded a pic from online, put it on my comp, browsed, double clicked on the pic and the file name was in the space provided but when I press submit nothing happens. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong but I can wait until its in the gallery on the site.

After reading that, it doesn't sound like he's that bad. He had a nice highlight reel.
