They start when they're ready to contribute. Jobs are earned, not given. Being a first round pick does not give you the right to start right away. Players have to make adjustments and some people have a larger learning curve than the other.

Go back to fantasy land man... from the looks of it, you should dominate every league you're in.
This coming from the guy in quicksand; what we've learned from your discussion:

Ignore the past, look to the future...

You've said the same thing 1,000,001 times...

First Round Picks should have no more expectations on them as Sixth Round Picks or Rookie Free Agents...

And yes, I do lead my Fantasy League in points, Thank You...

Go back to whatever land you need to; I'm thrilled to be right where I am!

The only way to judge this is to compare what the Saints results are with other teams. I've never been big on all the draft prognostication that starts for the next year before the current years draft even starts, and I'm even less inclined to look back a decade later and say "If we had only..."

And one thing I always do is I always expect less from the first rounder than probably most people do. It's a crap shoot. It always will be.

We could be like the Redskins and trade every pick away and geaux for proven vets like they do...

It is chance, but you'd expect better results as compared to other teams...

You're right, though...we could be the Bengals...

i believe our 2 1st rounders are doing okay, cam jordan was not a sack master in college he applied great pressure and was a sure tackler. now for ingram like someone said earlier hes in a 3 man rotation so hard to say; hes not getting 25 touches like some 1st round rbs do. i would think he could get that 100 yard per game with ease with all the attention. just saying guys they are far from being bust in my book.

You're right, you need two-three years to evaluate; that's why I posted the "jury" comments...

Jordan, I expected a little more with the attention I thought Smith, Ellis, Rogers/Franklin would command; many of us expected all four to now be a threat and it just hasn't happened...yet; I'm optimistic and hopeful...

Ingram seems to be getting stuffed alot; though I saw one play where he got more on his second effort (good to see); I'm as disappointed in our Oline as the RB production; but Sproiles has had success running even though his receiving options has been outstanding...

There is a couple that are major disappointments but the draft is what it is a gamble.

We do tend to have better luck in later rounds and I have become a believer that we should trade our first round pics for later round pics because of that.

I disagree that Robert Meachem is a bust. Drew spreads the ball around so much it would be impossible to tell. And you could argue Meachem singlehandedly got us the number one seed in 2009 by REFUSING to allow the Redskins to beat us.
