Re: Trading Up to get Dorsey

Everyone is wondering what the saints are going to do in the draft and its killing us all. We all know trade possibilities and just plain past crazy picks in the past. All this mock stuff is cool but we wont know until it happens. I just pray we make it to the BIG ONE this year!!!!!!!!!!

NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i don't think the saints should trade up for anyone in this draft. there have been previous years where i thought this would be a good thing, but not this year.

I dont want to see us trade up for anyone in this draft. we should be fine at 10, plus we need all the other picks we have left for this year and next. For DEFENSE !

We traded up to get Sullivan, we should trade up to get Dorsey or Ellis.

Re: Trading Up to get Dorsey

The question really should be "will Dorsey or Ellis at say pick 6, make a bigger impact than say 2 second round picks"?

-Answer, YES. There is a reason these guys are favored to go early in the draft.

Really good question.

Hm. OK, I'll stick myself out on a limb, say what I really think.

1) I think Dorsey could make the difference
2) I don't think Ellis could, I think multiple 2nd rounders would do us better

You know, we have a bad track record trading up to the #6 pick for defensive tackles. Think Jonathan Sullivan.

Personally, I think our best option is to trade down, and get more draft picks. We need an awesome safety. We need another OLB. And of course we need better CB's. I WISH WISH WISH that guy from Wingate had worded out. And the jury's still out on Usama. But anyway, we're not going to get Dorsey, I just don't see it happening. I had more hopes for getting Dewayne Robertson than I ever did for Dorsey - I just don't think we'll get him.

can anyone help me id this tune? it goes thwap thwap boom tch boom tch boom tch.

Qui a laissez sortir les chiens!
