Re: Your the Saints GM, what would you do this off-season???

I think what we do in the draft will depend on free agency.

a - If we sign a playmaking linebacker (Briggs) we should look at DBs or maybe sedrick ellis if he falls at #10.
b- If we sign a playmaking DB (Samuel, Trufant) we should look at possibly trading out of the 10 pick.

I feel that the value we have with the number 41 pick will be huge. #10 is an awkward position this year considering our needs. There will be more LBs, DTs, or DBs worth more at 41 than at 10. I would not feel bad about trading out of the 10 to later in the 1st round if the offer is right.

Extend Colston, Smith.

Faneca would be nice but expensive if we want to extend colston and smith.

Re: Your the Saints GM, what would you do this off-season???

1. Sign Samuel and Gay at all cost and yes that means even giving up some draft picks for next year, not this draft. Thomas becomes a coach. We also need to sign a mid-level FA to replace Bellamy.

2. Sign a quality DT FA like Simon or Haynesworth if possible and yes that means even giving up a draft pick next year, not this year. Re-sign Wynn and Young and Give Smith his long term deal.

3. Sign Daunte Culpepper to back up Drew. Rocket arm and can play well in spurts and knows he's a backup. Cut Martin.

4. Re-sign Patten and Henderson. Moore and Meachem will be big next year. We may want to extend Colston now to show some good faith.

5. Pound Deuce until the wheels fall off. Keep PT as his backup along with Stecker, Karneyand Branch. Bush will be punt returner, kickoff returner, wide receiver, running back, etc., The Matrix so to speak.

6. Re-sign Johnson and Miller, we also have Ghent.

7. Maybe a replacement for Nesbit or we could keep him, either way it's OK.

8. Re-sign Simoneau. If all of the other defensive pieces fall into place the linebackers will be much improved.

9. Cut Mare and Gramatica.

The Draft:

1st Round
Aqib Talib, CB, Kansas

2nd Round
Dre Moore, DT, Maryland

3rd Round
Beau Bell, ILB, UNLV

4th Round
David Vobaro, OLB, Idaho

5th Round
Andy Studebaker, OLB, Wheaton

6th Round
Alexis Serna, Kicker, Oregon State

7th Round
Terrell Vinson, CB Purdue
