New Orleans Saints still have unfulfilled needs after NFL draft

With another NFL draft in the bag, it's safe to predict this about the 2010 New Orleans Saints: More shootouts are on the way.


Eliot Kamenitz/The Times-PicayuneMany expected the New Orleans Saints to draft a linebacker to help replace the loss of Scott Fujita.The Saints didn't get much help for their defense during the three-day player lottery. In fact, they added more players to their top-ranked offense than they did to their 25th-ranked defense

Re: The Saints wanted Hughes..

It seems that the Colts followed that rule of thumb, because they definitely do not need help at OLB. They grabbed the best available player. I'm wondering if at the same time they were also motivated to take Hughes because he filled an area of need for us.

That's all pretty silly. If the Saints didn't think they have a replacement for Fujita in house do you really think that they wouldn't address that?

C'mon now. I can only assume that Dunbar is the man next year and they are comfortable enough with that.

Re: The Saints wanted Hughes..

Dunbar will never be an above average defender in the NFL. He's far too slow and got caught out of position big time last year. I've got my money on Stanley Arnoux.

As it stands right now..Arnoux is our best option site unseen....I agree Dunbar is depth at best. Just think of Hughes in that spot...Damn Colts..lol

Re: The Saints wanted Hughes..

so the Colts screwed us out of Hughes, and we screwed the Vlkes

my question is, why didn't we take the next best LB after Hughes instead of a corner?

Re: The Saints wanted Hughes..

this article starts off by being wrong

stating our pass rush is our biggest weakness

thats bs.....there isnt anything that says our pass rush is worse than our run defense.......NOT ONE THING

I didn't say that. Just stating that this team is good enough at all areas to take BPA. Hughes probably was one step above Robinson on the Saints board. After he was gone I don't blame the Saints for taking the next highest even though he was a CB. And in fact I think many people mistake the fact that you can have the finest DBs in the land and still use another playmaker there. For instance, Revis and Cromartie then add Kyle Wilson for the Jets.

Arnoux is a MLB and I thought Dunbar showed enough to get a good shot.

One thing I learned from drinking. You should always go Christmas caroling with a group. Oh, and always in mid-December.
