Our past drafts

Is it too early to talk about this? lol! With the potential for a high first round pick next year, I'd like you all to take a look at the New Orleans Saints' past first round picks over the past 10 years.

1. Take a look at who we picked and where they are now
2. Take a look at who we passed on and where they are now

I don't want to hear about what our needs were that particular year. Just take a look at the type of players we've gone after over the last decade... It might make you sick.

Reggie still has time.

Re: Our past drafts

Hey man, Reggie has a lot of time. It's just that everyone expects him to be great right off the bat. That's just not going to happen. I bet if you look back at all the number one and number two draft picks over the past 20 years very few were what you'd call great in their first two years. I think people need to give Reggie some time to learn the pro game. it's a lot different than the college game.

No we didn't! He hit our buffet. We got our moneys worth. Just of all the food we'd have had to throw out. I don't see how you can say that! LOL

Re: Our past drafts

I do not need to read the past to be sick. I see the players we passed on playing every weekend.
I am torn here. CB LT or LB.

The draft is such a crap shoot. How many "can't miss" players have been busts? There's one every year it seems. And if you spend you time worrying about who you passed on you're just going to give yourself ulsers.

As for what we need in the draft, I still subscribe to Joesam's "throw a dart" theory. It really hinges on what we do in FA.

Re: Our past drafts

dang draft talk already,

anyway on reggie, it usually takes scat backs a bit longer to develop than runners like adrian peterson, look at Dunn and Tiki, both are/were great scat backs but it took them a few years to get going, Tiki could still be a good back if he hadnt retired but ah well :P

agreed. Reg will be fine, especially when we have a "Deuce-type" in the backfield.

Re: Our past drafts

I agree with your assessment, except for 2000. I don't really see that we missed out on a whole lot. The only players that I see between the pick that we had (#2) and our next selection (#33), that are still currently highly productive are Shaun Alexander and Brian Urlacher. The others may have had a good year or maybe two.
