Wild idea...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I know that I've seen this idea floated somewhere on the board, but I really want to have a serious discussion about this. We just won the Super Bowl. We have retained just about every integral part of our team ...

Wild idea...

I know that I've seen this idea floated somewhere on the board, but I really want to have a serious discussion about this.

We just won the Super Bowl. We have retained just about every integral part of our team from last year. Thus, in my mind, we don't really have many (if any) "holes" to fill except a select few.

I think I'd be willing to trade a large bundle of picks to go up and get Suh. Crazy? Maybe. But this guy seems like he's got HOFer all over him.

In my mind, it comes down to quantity vs. quality. We don't need a lot of picks, we need one or two really good ones.

Thoughts?

There isn't a chance on this earth that we could climb that high up the draft. Set your sights a bit lower. There are some good players in the bottom on the 1st round.

Re: Wild idea...

Unless we're willing to include our first from next year, I don't believe even if we packed the majority of our picks this year, it still won't be enough to move up that high. Any chance of that happening, we'd have to include Jamal Brown with a group of picks and I'm not sure with all the hype the guy is getting... that the other team would take it. As good as Suh is suppose to become, there's been a TON of highly touted defensive tackles in the pass that never lived up to their billing. I'm more than comfortable keeping our picks and taking the BPA on our board at the time. If we do decide to trade up, I can maybe see up moving up in the mid to low teens... but that's about it.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

The only scenario i would like to see us trade up for is if mcclain falls to the late teens/early 20s.

LOL good point!

Go no higher than trading up into the teens. the price is to high any further up the draft board.

Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
or
Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB

As a big Bama fan I'd love to have him but not sure he'd live up to his potiental in our system. He'd be good for us, but he's a MLB for a 3-4. He's smart enough to pick up moving out left or right but he needs to be a MLB somehwere and preferably in a 3-4. My opinion.
