DT.

Lost Grant. Depth was shallow last year to begin with. Not that impressed with Pressley to this point. Still a lot of unknown on our line heading into FA.

It has to be DT.

Team Statistics ______New Orleans_____Opponents
TOTAL RUSHING YARDS __2,106__________1,955

Whatever it takes to get that second number lower.
We need someone who can tackle at the line.

Re: what is our biggest need?

im surprised so far.....

ive heard a lot about LBs and very little about DTs

i was thinking it would be a blow out with LBs and DEs taking the cake

Re: what is our biggest need?

Canton,

Without the benefit of knowing where our RFA's will be in 2010, and not knowing what Arnoux can do...I find it difficult to vote. It is certain Vilma, Shanle will be the Mike and Will LB'ers. Casillas? Waters? Arnoux? Jo-Lonn Dunbar? There is some good young talent in that group...IMHO.

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.

Biloxi

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Anywhere along the defensive line... whether it's DT or DE, we could use help at either position.

DE, it'd be great to have a good fast young one in the rotation.
