Like Wilson's size; had hoped Mason Foster would make it to us...

Still disappointed in drafting Another cornerback when we could have had Quinton Carter out of OU who could play now at either the nickel or dime and transitioned to Safety with Jenkins...

It's not that I don't like Ingram; I just don't believe you get enough shelf life with a R1 pick using it on a RB; but I am a Saints fan and he's now a Saint...

I wanted Clay Matthews and got Malcolm Jenkins; Matthews has showed to be the better player thus far, but Jenkins was definitely balling at times last year and will get better...I may even get me a Jenkins Jersey...

Would like to have gotten Barksdale out of LSU to replace the Stinch at Right Tackle; but a cornerback when there were better young safeties who could cover for a couple of years would have been better...

Ingram is not Reggie Bush. Reggie's career was based of finesse and shaking the hell out of people. In the NFL, that's a risk to base your drafting on. Ingram runs people over. Way more stable of a chance to succeed.

And while I love that style it's called the NFL (Not For Long) when playing that style...

It's gonna be fun and over in about five years...

True. Eric Metcalf (Cleveland late 80s early 90s) comes to mind. 5 or 6 years and then you never heard about him.

But if in those five years we get another superbowl... it will be well worth a first pick. Also most all RB only last 5 years, unless they are very good. Who knows Ingrim may turn into one of the top RB.

As Ross Tucker stated yeaterday, so what? This has become a 1 contract league. If you get 4 to 6 good years out of a player you're lucky.

After his 1st contract is up he can leave for more money, or the team can try to find someone else of equal value.

We only got 5-1/2 good years out of Deuce and thats fine with me.

Deuce was a stud. I really miss that guy. We gave away a whole draft for RW...Deuce sends him off to Miami. He is tied for 1st as of today as my favorite all-time Saint. However...there are guys on today's roster who could work their way to the top some day.
