Re: sporting news reports

I dont have a problem with taking phillips I just dont like the idea of doing it at #10, if we trade down im all for it. I think we'll be able to get a quality CB and LB with our 2nd and 3rd. Trading down and picking up phillips and an extra 2nd would be awesome. I think theres gonna be quality LBs and quality CBs available in the 2nd and 3rd rounds. If we're looking at getting a starter at DT and/or S i think we'll have to do that with our first rounder. Id really like to see us trade down a few spots and pick up an extra 2nd.

Re: sporting news reports

phillips because it would suck to get Jenkins then have him seem to get burnt all season long because the safety is out of position

Re: sporting news reports

If we draft a safety I want Steltz or the kid from BC.

Re: sporting news reports

Play making safety can be had in the second and third rounds. There are some really good CB that are tall and are not afraid to hit. They maybe better suited at FS than CB. Couple of names

Terrell Thomas, USC, 6-1, 200, 4.46 (4.40/4.54)
Jack Ikegwuonu, Wisconsin, 6-1, 202, 4.44 (4.28/4.56)
Dwight Lowery, San Jose State, 6-1, 182, 4.55 (4.47/4.63)
Darnell Terrell, Missouri, 6-2, 200, 4.43 (4.39/4.49)

It takes a little time to convert them but in the long run they will be good. More than one of these guys could be pro bowl type of safeties. All are playmakers.

So if the Saints do pick 2 CB in the draft early on look for one of them to begin work out at FS ASAP.

Re: sporting news reports

In the meantime, what happens with Bullocks? Trade bait? Backup? I don't know his contract situation. Do we have much $$ tied up in him?
