Re: The Saints wanted Hughes..

Arnoux played middle in a 3-4 in college, but has the skill to play outside LB. Gregg Williams said the first day of the draft, that he was better on tape than Aaron Curry. The corner back isn't a bad pick, if they know Sharper is leaving for sure. Chip Vaughn was supposedly right under Sharper in the depth chart before he got hurt. There is also the chance Jenkins will move to Safety. Jamal Brown is gonna be traded for a LB or DT. As pissed off as I was with the draft, we might be okay if they make a big trade. If this happens, then I understand the logic.

Read the article. We had Hughes rated at that spot. Colts got him. Let's say your next rated LB is like at 50 or 60 on your board. You're not going to pick him up in the 1st round. That's reaching and you end up paying 1st round money to guy that will probably never earn it. They did it right. Just the nature of picking last and people not working to deal with you.

I didn't like the Robinson pick at first, but after watching the corners come off the board in the 2nd round.....I totally understand it.

As far as why we didn't take a LB when Hughes went off the board, I'd say because there was a big drop off in LB's (talent & athleticism wise) after Hughes.

Although he does hit like a mack truck!More big collisions on special teams I like.

Loomis mentioned in one of the articles on the Saints webpage that they feel about the LBs this year as the Rbs last year that there are some of the younger guys that are ready to step up and take a large role on the team.

I see your point, but LB was not our only need. If the next LB was #50.
then I would have went with Price from UCLA.
