The Saints under Sean Payton haven't drafted a RB high other than Reggie Bush. Though it appears Payton is against taking a RB early, he said that's not the case and that the days of drafting a RB high aren't finished.

If I remember correctly we tried to trade up to get Beanie Wells. So it's not out of the question.

True, and if Ingram slips past Miami I could see the Saints try to work a deal to move up.

Not real likely, but it wouldn't shock me one bit.

I keep going back and forth, something tells me If Ingram is there yes. Trading up though, that's not something I see going down.

I'd rather not also. In fact, with so much DE/DT talent, I could see them trading down.

I'd love to see how many DE/DT's they have 1st round grades on.

I would not mind seeing the Saints draft Ingram in the 1st round even thou I feel DE is a bigger need right now.

I'd be fine with Ingram at 24. Not all that happy about trading up for him though.

With the depth at DE/DT this year we could still get some very good prospects in the 2nd and 3rd rounds.

I prefer defense, but Ingram or a stud OT works for me too.

strato i def. hear u also, i'm just not getting all bent out of the badger that i'm going to be sick if we don't get a speed rusher or that olb we've been wanting for 2 years. if its ingram or leshore or an o-line pick i'll be content if i'm saying it right. but i will not become the honey badger on a valuable draft pick because i really give a ----. i hope it came out right lol.
