Chating with Roman
Most players feel they should have gone higher in the draft.
But Alabama safety Roman Harper expressed surprise Saturday that the Saints had taken him in the second round with the 43rd overall pick.
"I thought it would be a while longer," Harper said. "When my mom answered the phone and told me it was general manager of the New Orleans Saints it was totally out of the blue."
Most projections had Harper as a mid-second to early third-round pick. One publication rated Harper going as low as the fourth round.
Harper added he was elated at joining the team that had drafted Reggie Bush earlier in the day.
"I don't even know if the Saints are going to have any more money for me," he said. "I'm a big fan of Reggie Bush.
"I always wanted to me him on video games. I'll probably be the first one to ask for his autograph."


nice yeah

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

I don't think anyone is happy with this pick, we totally lost our minds with this pick. New coaching staff, same management. I'm still happy about the draft, I would say it was a good day because I like the Bush pick but it could have been a great day had we put some thought into the #43 pick.

Yeah I cussed myself when this pick was made. It's not good, but I'm not rushing to judgement. I will wait to see what our coaching staff has in store for our secondary before I predict eternal doom for our team.

Yes... and that's why I'm pissed. It COULD have been a great day which makes it all that worse. Nothing at all wrong with selecting Bush if we would have put more thought into our 2nd pick. It was an average day at best for me. No matter what we do tomorrow, I cannot grade us out to better than a C- for this draft. One great player... and a bunch of roster fillers which blows because we have so many needs.

GoldRush-

I sure hope you're not referring in anyways that I'm predicting eternal doom for our team. Cause if you are, once again you need to learn how to read. I've said numerous of times that I feel we're going to compete for a playoff spot this season. A suck draft is a suck draft. A suck draft doesn't equate into eternal damnation for our team.

Is there any video or comments from the saints FO or Payton explaining the Harper pick? I would like to hear their explanation...

Why are you taking everything I'm saying as if I'm referring to you? You are apparently not the only one who is unhappy with the Saints picks today, which doesn't surprise me. I'm speaking in reference to the gloomy fan in general. Some are consistently pessimistic and others are just peevedx because the team didn't pick the guy they wanted them to. I just prefer to defer my judgement until I see the entire picture. You do you though.

Well, if this pick was made because we want to move Smith to corner, then i agree with it. The best thing i have heard about Harper is that he was described as someone who should be playing for the Patriots...very smart player and is never out of position...I'll take that over someone with speed who doesnt know where he has to be. But if they have no intentions of moving Smith, this pick makes no sense.
