Jets, can I have this dance

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I also think we will try to move down, if not we will stay put and take the BPA, even if its a rb. I'm not a big fan of moving up....not this year anyway. I think if Ryan, some ...

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

I also think we will try to move down, if not we will stay put and take the BPA, even if its a rb. I'm not a big fan of moving up....not this year anyway.

I think if Ryan, some kind of a way is there at no.10, we could rack up and move down. Any possible suitors Hagan?

Grant has proved he isn't a pass rusher so see no since in having him in even at a DT position during passing downs.

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

Addition by subtraction? No thanks. Been burned on that too many times before. Ricky Williams and Jonathan Sullivan come to mind. I'd rather they take their chances and stand pat or trade down. Forget the trading up nonsense.

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

This draft is soo close in talent that I would not be surprised to see vey few trades at the top. But from 10 on down plan on seeing MANY!

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

saintsmissile pulls no punches once again.

I would still like some youth at DT.

Craft at 35
Thomas at 34, think we let him go finally
G.Fassitt-WHO?
McKenzie-31 coming off major injury
Anwar Phillips-25 has done nada, even on the pratice squad
U.Young-22 jury still out on him
J.David-who care about his age, he sucks.

Compared to the CB's, the DT's all look like ALL PROS!
I guess Randall Gay never made the flight to New Orleans.
I think McKenzie and Young will be ready to play when the season starts. That gives us McKenzie and Gay starting, Young as Nickel, and David as dime (which even he couldn't mess up).

I would rather have that rotation with Ellis and Thomas up front than Bryan Young who can't even make it through the season anymore. We need to pressure the QB and it needs to be up the middle. This will make our CB's that much better. I don't care what rookie you draft in the first round, he won't make much of an impact Game 1. Ellis or Dorsey will. It's a no brainer on which position we need more.

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

The fact of the matter is this. The saints do need to get a young DT who can stop the run and also be able to somewhat rush the passer. The Saints do need another CB due to the uncertainty of MM's health, Youngs development, David ever being to fit in this system and so on. Both areas have to be addressed because the Saints defense does lack young playmakers. I think we have a good combination of youth and experience at LB if Vilma can stay healthy and Morgan plays 10 to 12 games. DT and CB are both key needs for this team and its hard to say one is more important than the other.

It's all in the reflexes.

Re: Jets, can I have this dance

I can't with all seriousness say which is more important than the other either, but what I can say is that I would rather take my chances in '08 with a dominant DT like Ellis or Dorsey who I know will be playing every game, than I would on a player like McKelvin or Cromartie who I don't know if they will even see the field. The position of DT is by it's very nature easier to pick up than CB in the NFL. Just like RB is easier to pick up than QB.
DT is checkers, CB is chess. Especially in today's NFL when teams are throwing all over the place and zone coverages are implemented more and more.
