Ok he can do it but it is a waist of his talent. let him run from sideline to sideline and collect heads along the way. Thats were he is best. At his size and speed he is an excellent match up against TE. Blitz him and he will eat up any RB assigned to block him. He is going to be a terror. Williams could do wonders with the kid and Scott is a great mentor for him.
he would play behind fujita? curious that a player with that kind of upside would have to sit

why do you think he would sit the first year or 2? is it just because you think fujita is better? and if thats the case....why would we use a pick on him instead of upgrading another position instantly?

Think B.S. (Before Sharper)
PI Calls; Harper and Jason David chasing AFTER post patterns; his instincts are awful and he doesn't consistently "bring the wood"...
We need a Strong Safety and if Mays does fall, he'd be an improvement...


Strong Safety is our weakest link on defense...

Well well well, our "weakest link" was tendered as a 1st rounder. Maybe he's not as bad as you think?

Re: 2010 NFL Draft

one thing everybody needs to remember is that the saints scout ohio and other midwestern products very heavily

since sean payton came to the saints, they have drafted 5 players out of the state of ohio alone in only 4 years

the lowest pick out of ohio was antonio pittman who was a 4th rounder

if you want to predict where our draft picks are going to come from......look at prospects in or around ohio......think pennsylvania, michigan, indiana, and illinois......even north carolina has a few picks

also remember we have not picked any players from LSU or texas

Actually I think he likes USC the most. With Tennessee close behind.

Honestly though. I don't think they really give a rat's azz where picks come from. As long as they can play ball.

How about USF?

im sure he doesnt care......i was just saying that if you wanted to guess, its a good bet to think that at least one of our picks will come from ohio and it will be an early round pick

Re: 2010 NFL Draft

Loomis & SP will have their stuff together. Depending on what Def players fall they may even trade out of the first orund for som extra picks!!

Whether we call it BPA or not. Call it value drafting. Whatever method that yielded the Vikings Adrian Peterson and the Cardinals Larry Fitzgerald. Thats the method I like the Saints using in this draft. No reaching to fill a need. If there is a top 10 or top 15 non QB talent that falls to 32 at whatever position whether its a need or not, then you draft that player. If no one falls, then draft for one of your "needs". I still contend that at 32 your expectation of the player you are drafting is not to come in and start right away and make a dynamic impact.

Thanks for the explanations of the DTs. So would a fair assessment of Sedrick Ellis be that he is versatile enough to play either role?

ellis can play both well simply because of his strength

hes very strong for only being 6'1" but he is much better when he is matched up 1 on 1 because it allows him to use his skills to get off the blocks

his skills arent used to their fullest if he is required to play nose tackle and his job is to take on blockers every play
