2nd round (59th overall)
3rd round (90th overall)
4th round (122nd overall)
5th round (154th overall)
6th round (166th overall) - via Redskins for Jammal Brown
6th round (167th overall) - via Dolphins for Reggie Bush
7th round (217th overall)


the 1st was sent to the Patriots to draft Mark Ingram, and the 6th was sent to the Dolphins as an exchange so the Saints could move up and draft higher in round 6 with the Dolphins' pick.

I'm not so much worried about a first but I would like a high 2 somehow someway and keep our other 2nd.

unless we are willing to move PT or a wide receiver, we don't really have any trade-value depth

we could end up with another pick if we tender a resticted FA and someone else signs them-- maybe Casillas?

of course if we tag either Nicks or Colston and if they go away we would get two number 1's. Slim on Nicks and None on Colston

If we put the franchise tag on Nicks or Colston they can't go anywhere. They aren't restricted free agents. We re-sign them, tag them, or they just leave. We don't get anything.

If they are tagged as a "nonexclusive franchise player" there is a chance that another team hands them an offer sheet and if the Saints don't match that they would be compensated with 2 1st round draft picks, but that scenario is very unlikely to take place.

Why not trade Bushrod for picks.
He is greatly helped out by Nicks and his vaule couldn't be higher.

What would we get for Bushrod what 6 or 7 round pick is not that elite of a player that's just what I believe.

And who would we play at LT instead? Bushrod is serviceable and has a cheap contract. Lets keep him.
