I'd think we definitley target some of them, but we've all seem Loomis pass up need for BPA before.

I have a feeling though that in round 3 there should be a few DT's that are probably also BPA.

And I'd imagine Spags has a list of journeyman DT's that can fill out a rotation just fine if we need it.

I agree and I do also think that some DTs will be the BPA at some point in the draft when the Saints are picking.

Just going on our track record and all of these players would be BPA. Like Danno said I think we'll find an undrafted guy or 2 or a unsigned fa to fill the void cheap rotational players are easy to find

OK, fair enough, but I do believe that some DTs will be the BPA when the Saints are picking and I have to believe that the need for a quality DT to develop under Spags will be greater than for another WR.

With this year's DT class it would make much more sense to pick a young DT who can make the transition to being a starter in a fairly short period of time seeing as Ellis is entering his last year under contract and all other DTs except for Bunkley are still very unproven and unexperienced.

I think it's much easier to find a quality UDFA WR if that is in fact what they are looking for, and like it has been said before - having a strong interior D-line will have a positive trickle down effect on the DBs.

Wolfe has been the only DT that I like that is getting any noise right now and he's moving up the charts out of the Saints picking range...

Billy Winn DE/DT from Boise State I have seen mentioned in a few mock drafts for us. He should be available in the 3rd when we pick. He looks to have a lot of potential!

So, another hybrid DE/DT. He seems promising on paper and I do think that the versatility these hybrids like Wolfe and Winn have will be a plus in Spags' schemes, because he likes to move those front 4 guys around a lot.

JP's 2012 Saints Mock Draft

R3 Josh Norman, DB, Coastal Carolina

R4 Brandon Hardin, SS, Oregon State

R5 Tank Carder, OLB, TCU

R6 Elvis Fisher, OT, Missouri

R6 Blake Decristopher, OT, Virginia Tech

R6 Travian Robertson, DT, South Carolina

R7 David Paulson, TE, Oregon

Understanding BPA is how you continually improve a roster - if there are options and you look at the Saints roster these are guys that could be available when the Saints pick that could make a positive impact and meet needs on this team...

Guys I wish we could draft are Derek Wolfe, Mychal Kendricks, Reuben Randle, Bobby Massie, Bobby Wagner, Terrell Manning, Brandon Taylor, Markele Martin and Amini Silatolu...
