Move Hargrove back to DE? Clancy and Ayodele at NT? DE appears to be the "biggest need".

I know everyone is wanting defense, defense, defense, however, I believe a young tight end and center are needs (especially in the middle rounds). Enough of the WR facination!!!!!

If the past is indicitive of the future, then the Saints will seek a RB in UDFA.

Ok, i'm gonna get slammed, but here I go. Shanle is trash! He can't cover and is too damn slow. How many TE's smoked his ass this year. Dallas Clark for one. It'll be Vilma, Arnoux, and if we draft Weatherspoon as our LB's. Mcray can start at DE and our run defense was pretty good before Clancy got injured. I'd like an upgrade on the line, but we need speed at LB. It'll let Gregg Williams dial up a lot more blitz's. We've got some talent in house, so we might be better off than everyone thinks. Granted, we can upgrade!

alright here it comes.....dallas clark had the most catches of any TE in the league......and was 2nd for any TE in yardage behind only antonio gates.......dallas clark ripped everyone apart

shanle does a great job considering he has one of the toughest jobs in the NFL having to cover not only dallas clark and visanthe shiancoe in the playoffs, but also jason witten, kellen winslow, tony gonzalez, fred davis, and brian celek

sure he isnt jabari greer.....but those TEs are very talented and shanle held them to about 3 catches per game every time they played

mccray cant stop the run at all....you know what happened in our first play of the playoffs? tim hightower to the endzone running right at bobby mccray

also you'll notice near the end of the year, all it took was a max protect for our blitzes to be completely nullified.....we couldnt get pressure if we wanted to and all teams like dallas had to do was keep us on our heels.

we cant blitz successfully if the blockers arent occupied by other players. a big DT or DE solves that problem

Re: what is our biggest need?

You guys done drooling over your awards?

Personally I hope we draft two more DT's. We'll need them.
