Something to Ponder: Saints top QB pick didn't get play but goes on to the Pro Bowl

Saints top QB pick of the century (2000-present) Marc Bulger (6th round, 2000). Bulger never played a down for the Saints, but became a Pro Bowl QB for the Rams. The Saints didn't draft a QB that ever started a game for New Orleans in the last decade.

Remnants of Saints waste and poor decisions still haunting us?

How many have we drafted? Have we ever drafted one in the top 4 rounds?

Hard to have one compete if you don't draft any.

We anoly drafted 2 since Bulger, and both were late round fliers...

Adrian McPherson - 5th round
Sean Canfield - 7th round

We've had a few skate away and have a decent season or two, but mostly since Payton has come along I think we've done a pretty good job of scouting our own talents before we cut and/or shop them. I trust our coaching and management.

I seem to remember

We drafted Archie number two overall. He had some really good Probowl appearances. But that, of course, is ancient history...
