Should the Saints have traded up for Ben Grubbs

I have been noticing the talk about Robert Meachem and the thing I want to point out is: The man we really needed was Ben Grubbs of Auburn, that man would have made our O-line impenetrable. He comes from a school that builds itself as a reputation as a O-line school workshop and a RB factory. And Since I am a die hard Auburn fan, I saw this boy Grubbs develop, he is the real deal man. He's tough, nasty, mean and will do anything to protect his QB. Our Offesne was good anyway, we had a good WR corps in Henderson and Colston, taking another WR was risky and especially from the Vols. They have a very laid back coach and also very controverisal coach in Philip Fulmer. He wins but he isnt a disciplinarian like Tuberville is at auburn. I mean at Auburn you are molded into a better man and if you dont you dont play, period. Ben Grubbs is another example, as well as Marcsu Mcneil and our RB factory that produces star HB's every year. Bottom line Meachem wasnt what this team needed, he may still be a great player for this team, in fact I hope he is, but the guy I wanted was who Baltimore eventually got, they got their Jammal Brown. and yes we could have traded up to get him too.

Auburn is for the most part a good school that puts out good players, and we should taken that example to heart and taken Grubbs as our Pick, that guy will be good in Baltimore, mark my words

No! If you haven't noticed we have one of the best young offensive lines in the League. Plus, we pick up two more gems in the mid rounds of the draft in (G)Andy Alleman in the 3rd rd and (OT)Jermon Bushrod in the 4th rd, both of whom are spoke highly of by the Media as two very talented O-linemen. oh yeah, I almost forgot about FA pickup (OT)Peter Dyakowski from LSU, also a school that produces not only great RB's but great football player's across the board. One more thing, I'm a hugh DIE HARD fan of the LSU T-I-G-E-R-S, TIGERRRRRS.

Well Blacksaint and I love the Peter Dyakowski from LSU pick up as a UDFA. He could be the Steal of the draft or of the undrafted. IMO
Grubbs would have been a great addition but the chips did not fall that way. Oh well.
As far as the which ***** cat is better, I will leave that to yall to debate.

COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We all know that every year Auburn wins a game against LSU the refs have a role to play at the end of the game in deciding the winner. Coincidence I think NOT!

Now that I got that off of my chest I will say this, had he been there when we picked we probably would have picked him and I would have been happy, but we were not going to trade up just to pick an O-lineman. Payton was deadset on get BPA at that spot, and we did, now lets see if it pans out.
