Re: With the 10th pick the Saints select...

I wanna take you guys back to our 2007 1st round pick...just before the saints made their selection...there was a poll posted on espn.com...the question was "which is the saint's largest area of need?" the results were

DT - 34%
CB - 33%
LB - 33%

Looks familiar in 08 doesn't it...what i'm trying to get across was that there was no consensus on that draft day just like we don't have now...here are the facts...last year we signed Jason David and Brian Simmons who were both supposed to help solidify our needs at CB and LB...this year we signed def free agents vilma/morgan/mccray/gay...well we all know the direction the saints/payton went by taking meachem in 07...the glaring need in 07 was a defensive 1st rounder who could impact our def...however payton goes wide right and selects an offensive wr when I thought the position was already set...bottom line I feel payton wants to draft a rb with the 10th pick...considering the uncertainty of deuce's health and the question of whether he can regain his form of 2006...i believe now more than ever that mendenhall is the pick even if rivers is sitting there and a top tier cornerback...i don't necessarily agree with it...it's just payton's way i think...what do you guys think about this...am i way off?
