Laron Landry

What do yall think about gettin this guy? He probably won't be there when the Saints pick last next spring' but this guy looks like the real deal. A complete monster who will instill fear in all downfield recievers! I know we have some good safetys, but not like Laron. He shall be called Laronnie lott.

RE: Laron Landry

hate to say it but his game needs alot of work. he does not tackle that well. Nfl WR and RB will bounce off alot of those hits. he does not wrap up.

What Laron Landry are you watching? This couldn't be more incorrect. He isn't the #1 safety in college cause he's a sucker.

Well, with Roman blowing out his knee, and not being all that impressive to begin with, he may not get the chance to be what he never was, if ya follow what i'm saying. Landry is like a LB at S, with speed. We could play him how Carolina plays Thomas Davis. Or we could just draft a LB. Either way.

I follow you whoodi.
still after watching two games this year fla. and auburn I was impressed with his size and all but he tackles with his body. he relizes on the big hit too much. he needs to use his arms in tackling. in the nfl that will not work. he will be a good player but in order for us to get him it would not be worth it. he just is not worth the price.
After 6 games we are picking 29th and the last of the 2 loss teams is picking 19th. if the draft was today. statistics say we will be picking in this range by the end of the season. 32th to 19th
but would trading up at least 5 spots in the draft be worth it? i would rather spend the picks on another player. i do not think he will last past 14.

Laron is a great player, he is a local guy, and we all like to watch him play, but he will not be with the Saints next year. He is going to be a high pick, more than likely the first DB taken and certainly the first safety and the Saints have a lot invested in their two young safeties. I just hope LaRon goes to an AFC team because i would hate to have to root against him like i have to root against Michael Clayton. If you want an LSU guy to get drafted by the Saints, it would be more realistic to hope for Dwayne Bowe in the 2nd round or Craig Davis later on in the draft. Horn getting up in age, Henderson not panning out, and Copper, Moore, and Jones are mainly special teamers.

It's all in the reflexes.

Wait hagan, I never said anything about moving up to get him or anything. I was just speaking on your take on his tackling. I felt it was not 100% accurate, but it's your opinion so it's all good. I disagree with that. But if LaRon somehow fell to us, I think we'd take him in a second. Roman Harper could equal Mel Mitchell after an injury like this, and our D-line and LBs haven't been terrible, they've actually been fairly decent. And we need secondary help in the worst way, especially if Harper doesn't pan out. But I wouldn't trade up. Maybe we look CB early, and WR in the second like Bob said. But I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss LaRon.

Hagen the draft doesn't work totally like that once in the playoff's when you lose is where you pick you could be 16-0 lose the first round and pick before the teams that get to the conf. finals

As a freshman in 2003 Landry led LSU in tackles. The year they won the NC.

We need to draft either a corner, DT, or OL with that 1st pick anyway.
