i just think he was a better player and a better fit. we still now need a TE and we had WR already that are as good or better than Mech. I hope he really does pick up his game this year. plus we wouldnt be talking about using another top pick on an O player again.

At one time I thought Zach Hilton would be great. Off the subject but whatever happened to him? He was fearless.

I thought Hilton and Boo would both be stars at TE and then poof-both gone.

I know Boo was banged up alot, and I don't remember but maybe Hilton wasn't a great blocking tight end. But the one Saint I still regret us cutting is Mike Haas. I think he breaks into the Bears line up this year. He has great hands.

no.. meachem was rated much higher then olson and the saints had Meachem rated very high on their board.. probably around the 15 range.. 12 spots higher then we selected him...
