first i have liked this draft. also

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; spkb, I'm getting the same feeling. I like that we have chosen overachievers and hard workers as opposed to guys with names we recognize but are lazy and take plays off. The Harper pick had me scratching my head, not ...

spkb, I'm getting the same feeling. I like that we have chosen overachievers and hard workers as opposed to guys with names we recognize but are lazy and take plays off. The Harper pick had me scratching my head, not because I don't like what I hear from the kid but because we have so many safeties already (makes me think we will be dumping some dead weight at the safety position real soon). I agree with the NE reference, they are known for taking guys that work hard and overachieve, "character guys." I feel like that is what we are trying to do and hopefully it pays off. And oh yeah, we got some guy named Reggie Bush who just so happens to be the best player in the draft!

at least to make the team at safety you are going to have to work your arse off. because there is some serious competition in terms of numbers

Ditka drafted High Character guys, but not guys who were High Character AND good football players.

Danny Awful comes to mind as a good christian boy who cant play a lick of proball who Ditka nearly adopted.

RE: Re: RE: first i have liked this draft. also

I think this was a decent draft. I too am confused about the safety pickup. Hopefully, that will be explained in the coming weeks. Maybe Smith moves to CB, maybe not. Anyway, it's hard to really expect a great draft - and I don't mean this terribly bad against him - when you have an accountant-type running your war room. I don't care whose input he listens to or whatever else, Loomis has said in the past these are his decisions and that bothers me since he is not a football guy.

Unfortunately, RB is an area of need. I love Deuce, but he hasn't been the Deuce that I loved in the past 2 seasons. Last year he had the injury and the year before was just ho-hum with injuries as well (AND the 2 TE set). Let's not forget that the experts say it takes 2 seasons to come back to full speed from a torn ACL and sometimes they never do (see Jamal Anderson). Getting Bush really eases my fears for this position. Not to mention, an analyst said early Saturday that Bush is the kind of runner that'll make your o-line better. So, maybe getting Faine is a good move. We'll just have to see.

I liked the trading down to get the veterans and the veterans we got.

I hated picking another WR right now. We might as well have picked a K in that spot. Yes, we need a possession WR, but you can't expect this guy to play much this year.

Like I said, an decent draft.

fair analysis sotty. i think that hass wiull play even if limited. he will gte his feet wet. i think in the end he will be a very good number 3. maybe even like an ed mccaffery/ eric martin type wide out.
