Saints draft board, top 10 -Rank'em boys

Ignoring the possibility that a top 10 guy may slip (like a Gallerey or Manning) heres my own draft cheat sheet, how I rank 'em in regards to what the Saints needs. I'm obviously ignoring the BAP philosophy because I can't list 60 players, I ain't no Mel Kiper! ;)

1. DeAngelo Hall
2. Dunta Robinson
3. Jonathan Vilma
4. DJ Williams
5. Roy Williams
6. Karlos Dansby
7. Derrick Strait
8. Chris Gamble (had flu at pro-day, lost 14 lbs, I give him a mulligan)
9. Donterrious Thomas
10a. Teddy Lehman
10b. Rod Davis
10c. Michael Clayton

OK so its 12, sue me... its like Mortenson's weekly top 5's list.
I think 2 of my top 4 will be there when we pick. It'll be interesting to see what we do.

Anybody notice the Saints haven't really said much about DJ Williams? Hmmm, smokescreen perhaps? He'd easily be the best OLB we've had since the Dome Patrol days. He has the talent and skills to be the next Rickey Jackson.

I think Mike Williams may fall a bit b/c Roy Williams stock has skyrocketed after running a 4.3\'ish 40-dash.

Well, and here I was waiting to get blasted because I included Starks and Grove on my list.

If Hall and Robinson are gone at 18, I think its between Vilma and Williams.

We can\'t lose either way.

We will get one of those 4.

All 4 will be impact players in the league for a long time.

I think Hall and Robinson are a better short term fix for us, but I think Vilma and Williams are absolutely can\'t miss stars. Thinking BAP, I\'d take Vilma or Williams. Thinking most pressing needs, I\'d take one of those two CB\'s.

I\'m starting to lean toward LB 1st, then draft best CB\'s left with 2a and 2b.
