We have a hell of a lot of high draft picks on D which is not all that impressive!
Jenkins
Porter
Harper
Ellis
Will Smith
Robinson

Looks like we hit on quite a few of them.

What early round picks would you classify as horrendous?

Just to clarify...

Here are the early round picks in the Payton era (I even included the 3rd round)
2006
Rd Sel # Player Position School
1 2 Reggie Bush RB USC
2 43 Roman Harper SS Alabama

2007 - New Orleans Saints
Rd Sel # Player Position School
1 27 Robert Meachem WR Tennessee
3 66 Usama Young CB Kent State
3 88 Andy Alleman G Akron

2008 - New Orleans Saints
Rd Sel # Player Position School
1 7 Sedrick Ellis DT USC
2 40 Tracy Porter CB Indiana

2009 - New Orleans Saints
RD SEL # PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
1 14 Malcolm Jenkins DB Ohio State

2010 - New Orleans Saints
RD SEL # PLAYER POSITION SCHOOL
1 32 Patrick Robinson CB Florida State
2 64 Charles Brown T USC
3 95 Jimmy Graham TE Miami (Fla.)
I don't think there's a "horrendous" player anywhere
