What is wrong with all these people who, in my opinion, seriously overvalue draft picks?
Northcutt is a 5 year pro who\'s best year, had 62 receptions, 729 yards, and 2 touchdowns. He\'s 5-11\", weighing in at 175lbs. All his stats are BELOW the NFL average. He\'s behind Quincy Morgan on the depth chart.
The argument went from trading a 2nd rounder for him to a 3rd rounder. While trading a 3rd rounder for him is more inline with what I think he\'s worth, I still wouldn\'t make this move. Maybe I do over-value draft picks, but I\'m not going to trade away a 3rd round draft pick for someone who is going to compete with Pathon, Lewis, Caldwell, Crowell, and Gardner for the 3rd WR spot on this team. I would rather take my chances in the draft.

BnB, I hope it wasn\'t me you were cheezed with - I agreed that a second rounder was too much.
I wasn\'t. The only thing that cheezed me on this thread was-

I am sure glad none of you are the Saints Coach.
As if to say, \"thank God your not the head coach, since you wouldn\'t make this trade.\" If it makes you feel any better, I agree with the current coaching staff\'s moves that they have made on this argument thusfar- which has been nothing at all.

Dennis Notrhcutt doesnt bring anything to the table that the Saints dont already have. Giving up a pick for somethinf you already have is pointless and forget about it ever happening...The only kind of reciever the Saints need is someone about 6\'3 just to be a reliable target in the red zone and to create mismatches for other teams with smaller corners...pretty much like the ones that we have.
