RE: A question about the draft

It will be fun having enough picks to maybe move up and not have to go down like last year. Even if we did drop in the draft. i have to believe peyton will do the right thing, He shock alot of us in this years draft.
do not forget we have alot of players on one year deals and dumped alot of cap money through trades and cuts to make the FA a fun time also.

RE: A question about the draft

that's why i feel next year we'll be very, very scary.... another offseason with this new regime and we can really start booking tickets and hotel rooms, b/c the super bowl will be a very real possiblity for this team.... my concern for next year is will we play with the excitement, determination, and momentum that we're playing with this year? this year, while it can't account for all the wins, we have the katrina thing that we're sorta feeding off of.... next year, will they still use that as motivation, or will that fire to prove how far they've come dissipate? we shall see....

Go Saints
"Kingdom Come" hasn't been released yet.

Was looking at the following info, yesterday:

2005 Draft
1st - Jammal Brown - starter
2nd - Josh Bullocks - starter
3rd - Alfred Fincher - reserve

2004 Draft
1st - Will Smith - starter
2nd - Devery Henderson - reserve
5th - Rodney Leisle - reserve
5th - Mike Karney - starter

This is where it gets ugly....

2003 Draft
2nd - Jon Stinchcomb - starter
4th - Montrae Holland - reserve

2002 Draft
1st - Charles Grant - starter

2001 Draft
1st - Deuce McAllister - starter

prior to 2001
No active players on the roster. Roughly 20% of our roster was acquired in the draft, 13% of which are now starting. Because of recent changes in the coaching staff, there has been a high turnover of players this past offseason. However, consider this...

2004 6th round selection Jason Jefferson is now with the Bills
2003 7th round selection Colby Bockwoldt is now with the Titans
2002 1st round selection Donte Stallworth is now with the Eagles
2002 2nd round selection LeCharles Bentley is now with the Browns
2002 6th round selection John Gilmore is now with the Bears
2001 3rd round selection Sedrick Hodge is now with the Dolphins
2001 4th round selection Moran Norris is now with the 49ers

50% of our selections over from 2001-2005 are still active in the league.

So that's...
20% of the roster aquired in the draft (13% starting)
50% of the players selected are still in the league

Compared to our division rivals

Carolina Panthers
34% of the roster aquired in the draft (19% starting)
61% of the players selected are still in the league

Atlanta Falcons
26% of the roster aquired in the draft (9.5% starting)
54% of the players selected are still in the league

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
28% of the roster aquired in the draft (15% starting)
55% of the players selected are still in the league

And for quality control, we can look at the Pro-Bowl selections for players selected in the 2001-2005 NFL drafts.
New Orleans Saints: 4 selections
Carolina Panthers: 5 selections
Atlanta Falcons: 7 selections
Tampa Bay Buccs: 0 selections

The waiting drove me mad....
I don't want to hear from those that know...
Everything has changed, absolutely nothing's changed


Eddie is a....draftnik?

RE: A question about the draft

We should also be getting compensatory picks from losing Bentley and Howard to FA.
