Yeah, and we owe San Fran a "remember me" shot!

I agree, I think Hosley would be a good get for us; especially since, like you say, he'll probably be there late in the draft as The Hokies (sort of rightfully) probably won't get much respect by scouts...

I'd also think Danny Coale might be good for us. He's not a huge name but he is a good, fairly large receiver but is also pretty versatile; he can return kicks and even punt! I could see him being used in special packages and "trick" plays...
Grad school, 2007. I like Coale too, but honestly, he's too small. I'd say take him in the 7th or sign him as a free agent, but I don't think he'll get drafted. I hope so, though. Being robbed of a Sugar Bowl winning touchdown by some dumb azz ref is an awful way to end a career. But he seems like the kind of guy Brees would like.

Yeah, he's small but so are Sproles and Wes Welker. I don't see him as a number 1 receiver by any means but a solid return guy (so we don't have to keep putting Sproles back there) and a role-player...as a back-up and maybe in the slot when needed (especially if we wind up losing one of our current WRs with upcoming cap issues)? And I definitely see him and Brees having a good rapport.

The Sugar Bowl still makes me want to cry a little. I only care about two teams: The Saints and The Hokies. I don't watch basketball, baseball, hockey, any of that stuff. To have both of my teams end their seasons the way they did...it sucks. I can't think of a better word for it.

Welcome to the flippin club. Just change colleges and we are in the same boat.

Round 2 - OLB


Round 2 - OLB

Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma
Height: 6-2. Weight: 232.
Projected 40 Time: 4.50

Can play either SLB or WLB

Matt Reynolds, OT, BYU maybe? I am torn on this pick

Round 3 - DT/DE

Derek Wolfe, DE/DT, Cincinnati
Height: 6-5. Weight: 302.
Projected 40 Time: 4.92

Flexibility to play either a 3-4 or a 4-3 defense.


Round 4 - DE to groom

Jake Bequette, DE, Arkansas
Height: 6-4. Weight: 271.
Projected 40 Time: 4.62

Potiental for improvement is there. Converted TE is a plus

Round 5 - Massive RT/OG

Alex Hurst, OT, LSU
Height: 6-6. Weight: 340.
Projected 40 Time: 5.19

Want to get the running game to improve. this would be a steal in round 5

Round 6a. Washington → New Orleans (PD) - OLB

Dexter Heyman OLB, Louisville
Height: 6-3. Weight:238.
Projected 40 Time: 4.57

Athletic linebacker that flashes skill making plays sideline to sideline. Talk about a talented project. wish i could find more tape on him. Well worth the 6th round pick to develop. Instant hit on special teams.


6b - Blocking TE

Michael Williams, TE, Alabama
Height: 6-6. Weight: 270.
Projected 40 Time: 4.77

I really would be shocked if he is here in the sixth, He has better hands than most would think. A bulldozer of TE. I really want this player! Saints get one of the best traditional TE in recent drafts. I see his stock sky rocketing with combines and pro day work outs.


Round 7 - Developmental Center

Scott Wedige, C, Northern Illinois
Height: 6-4. Weight: 314.
Projected 40 Time: 5.18

I have watched the kid play a couple of times. I would love to see him there in the seventh but i believe he will go earlier but for now i have to go with pre draft rankings. Most do not mention him.

Undetermined Pick:

Miami → New Orleans (PD). Miami traded an undisclosed selection to New Orleans for running back Reggie Bush.

The players I would love the saints to make a move on?

Cam Johnson DE, Virgina

no we have talked about a few others in the blog. some good names have been thrown around

yeah, it would be nice to see a line backer or de make a sack instead of our strong saftey so he could stay in the secondary helping with pass coverage to keep us from getting burnt so much on these long passes.
