Saints have needs as draft nears

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I'm still not getting the idea that the Saints need a TE. Like RB, the Saints have some good options there. One could argue that every position on defense that isn't CB (man that's weird to state) could be upgraded ...

Re: Saints have needs as draft nears

I'm still not getting the idea that the Saints need a TE. Like RB, the Saints have some good options there. One could argue that every position on defense that isn't CB (man that's weird to state) could be upgraded before even thinking about any position on offense.

But depth at CB is needed.

Payton usually carries 4 TE's on the roster. We have Shockey, Thomas, Miller and... after that we drop off. As much as our coach uses the TE, I could see the need for another.

Raw player. Very athletic (obviously). Responds well to coaching. Tons of upside.

Ummm HELL YES!!

And the kid runs a 4.40! Talk about match up problems...

REPs to a lot of you in this thread that would allow it (some of you had gotten REPs too recently from me to allow me to give it again...like CL for one)...however, one was negative. GUESS WHO!

So which position needs more of an upgrade in your opinion, CB or TE?
