Re: here's what scares me.........

I think any offensive pick besides an offensive tackle would be a bad pick for us at #10. Tackle is one of those positions where you can just never have enough talent. I think if we took a tackle, although I'd be upset that we weren't addressing defense, would be something that you couldn't really argue with. (especially if it was a true LT that could send Brown back to RT where he belongs).

Brian Billick was an offensive minded coach... just thought I'd point that out.

We'll take the best player there at 10... and it shouldn't be a offensive player.

I don't see any legit top ten WRs on the board, thank God. I wouldn't be opposed to Clady, though. There are some very good RBs at the top end of the draft, too. I wouldn't be surprised to see us take one of them, either.

I think if it's offense at all it will be Ryan Clady, OT, Boston College. I don't think we'll need a wide receiver with Lance coming on last year and Meachem coming in, that's why they let Henderson go and the fact that he can't catch.

Not to pick nits, but it's Boise State, not BC.

I could see if your defense was pretty set, but when you have as many problems as we do, we would be just plain stupid to draft a OT with the 10th pick in the draft. Now, if you want to pick an OT in the 7th, sure. Not to mention, you can always pick up a backup at T after June 1st cutdown day.
It all depends on who's available when we draft. The FO is going to take the who they see to be the BPA...you can take that to the bank (see also Meachum, Robert). Who knows about Bushrod, Stinch is okay and Streif is a serviceable back-up, but you build teams around the OL.

Re: here's what scares me.........

Well for one we still have issues with our O line. Brees is damn good at what he does and hides the fact our line isn't that great to carry us to the SB. I don't have a problem going Oline.

What scares me even more than drafting a WR is look at the RB's. I am more worried about drafting a RB!!!

I still think the saints want Keith Rivers but thats just me. I dont think there is a CB or a WR worth a top 10 pick. It would tough to manage, but i wish there was some way the Saints could move down in the draft.
