this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He gave us a "C"...........We had six picks and they all have possibly great value. Ingram was a no brainer....

I bet Sean Payton can't even sleep at night with all the new schemes, formats and scenarios dancing in his head. Payton and Brees with a running game? Let's price some Indy hotels.

Lets recap (of course everything is "on paper" until they actually play)

Our draft

The top rated DE (rated #1 by some, #2 by others) at 24 - WOW!!!

The top rated RB (a consensus top 20 pick, rated #1 RB by everyone) at 28 (and we threw in #56) - WOW!!!

The top rated ILB (rated a 2nd rounder by most) in the 3rd - Excellent!!!

The 12th best CB (rated a 3rd rounder) in the 3rd - OK, not great but good. Went about where he should.

A potentially 1st/2nd round rated DE who fell due to injuries in the 7th (medical says he'll be healed by TC) - WOW!!!

A young and raw tenacious LB who should contribute immediately on special teams in the 7th - good pick for a late 7th.

How the above prospects got a C from anyone is laughable.

The ONLY way to grade a draft the day after is to examine where they were picked versus where they were projected, how they'll fit the teams that drafted them, and lastly...team needs. Which is debatable if BPA is acknowledged as the best way to build a team over time.
