SAINTS GET TOP FIVE PICK?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Von will be a bust. One trick pony who disappears for entire games at a time. Peterson actually did line up at OLB some this season for LSU. Obviously not his best position, but he's got enough size to make ...

REVIS WHO?
Can't trade players in this draft without a CBA. It's just picks.

No I really haven't been. Live in Texas, have to watch a lot of A&M games. The guy is a sick nasty pass rusher from his OLB spot, but is not a well-rounded linebacker. He looks uninterested when he's not able to rush the passer, and there were games where he'd completely disappear. I guess if you wanted to use a top three pick on a specialist, he'd be a fantastic pick. But for me, if I was going to use a top three pick on a linebacker, I'd want a guy who could do it all, not just rush the passer. I could be wrong, just seen him quite a few times and don't think he's the quality of a guy like DaMarcus Ware, and that's the role he'll be asked to play.

And I'm not just pulling this out of my ass. A lot of people feel the same way.

CBS: Overall instincts for the position, particularly containment and run responsibility and reaction, are questionable since he is primarily used in a "sic 'em" role. Improving against the run, but must be more consistent to become an elite all-around player. Teams take advantage of his continual edge rushing to get a running lane outside. Overruns plays with aggressive angles and a lack of focus on the ball.

ESPN: Plays with a very high motor when feeling involved in play but can does show some inconsistency with effort when chasing in pursuit. Can be engulfed by bigger OT's when caught in a phone booth situation.

Sporting News: Isnít as effective when he has to take on and defeat offensive-line blocks.

Dallas Morning News: This one pretty much sums up how I feel -

I'm with you on that, especially after watching Marshawn Lynch morph into Jim Brown on that TD run in the playoffs in Seattle.

I don't know what team have you have been following but there is NO WAY Sean will trade up in the first round. -BPA- is who he'll draft at 24. Any question or doubt of that you are dreaming.
