If there are so many good guys left on the board, why would we want to trade away picks when we could just stay put and still get good players?

Because, we're 9 picks away and can have a run on defensive players in the next 6 or 7 picks.

Here is the problem........Coach Payton is sure that he has set up this team to be able to pick BPA, and not have to waste a pick on a need. Why waste even more picks to move up for a defensive player. One more thing what happens if the unthinkable happens(Which it won't, but hey guys I am setting up hypothetical) and Quinn falls to 27? Do the Saints listen to some trade talk, or do what they did with Bush and just take him, and let Brees give him so support.

I absolutely say "NO" to taking Brady Quinn. Taking Reggie when we had Deuce is so much different than taking Quinn when we have Brees. Reggie could play on the field at the same time as Deuce, and was also switched in and shared touches with Deuce. You can't do that with a QB. If we take him, he's not going to play. He won't be able to switch in or share touches. Sure, having depth is nice, but I don't think we could justify ignoring holes at DT, LB, WR, and CB in order to get a pure BACK-UP.

Besides that, I just don't think he's very good. I was at the Sugar Bowl, and the guy just misses on too many easy throws, he's just not an overly accurate QB.

I agree with you Deuce, but he is BPA there is no doubt. Olsen looks good also. I really hope we trade with the Browns if Quinn is there.

No to Quinn, No to moving up.

Hell, with the guys left, I would drop back- Poz, Meachum, Bowe, Jarrett, Khalil, Olsen. We are in great shape.

Crap, there goes the trade bait. Oh well, I see ScottF's point about staying still or even trying to drop down a few slots. So many targets are still there, and mathematically we're guaranteed at least one of them because there aren't enough teams choosing in front of us to take all of our targets. Poz, Meachum, Bowe, Sidney Rice, Branch, Olsen, Staley, Kalil, Beason.... so many good players left.

See ya Bowe. I think we should go defense in the first, and then package some of those 3rd and 4th picks to move up and get one of the other primetime receivers. Thoughts?
