I would think any combination you posted could be a possibility....but i have to favor the ones where we select two corners and one linebacker. Corner is definitely the most pressing need. I say that because the Saints at least have some youngsters at LB that could develop while everyone we have at corner is either past their prime or won\'t even have one. (Thomas excluded) I would shoot for a corner in round one, and LB and CB in round two. I like the Robinson, Thomas, Smith draft the best.

Famous last words. Did you forget that this is a SAINTS board?

Since the Ricky Williams debacle, I think the Saints have actually drafted not too poorly. You can\'t argue Deuce and Bentley weren\'t great picks, and Grant and Donte should turn out alright as well. Sullivan over Trufant may have been a mistake, time will tell, and I wasn\'t sure about the Stinchcomb pick last year, but I honestly don\'t think you can call the Saints idiots for how they\'ve drafted in the last few years.

I think the Saints have had better than average drafts the last 4 years or so. The Sullivan pick makes sense to me and deep down it makes sense to most of you too but we all have a hard time getting excited about a lineman even though we should be used to it by now. (Naeole, Turley, Grant) Everyone wants to see WR\'s and DB\'s drafted high every year but it just doesnt work out like that. Sullivan filled a glaring need and now we have one this year at CB. Maybe this year we can get excited about some ballhawks and some headbusters. Who knows?

Aaaaaayyyyyy!!

we are always going to have glaring needs or in need of upgrades, Nature of the beast with. I agree we have had really good drafts the past few years and I feel secure that we will again. Players do need time to adjust and grow and get comfortable with the NFL... its a whole different level. Drafting cb\'s this draft is great and all but I sure the hell like 3 LB\'s over the cb\'s that will be available to us and we can land 2-3 LB\'s... hmmm... the delima

Well as much as i would hate to see it...the new word on the street is the Tampa is looking to load up on LB\'s in the draft. I really dont wanna see Vilma or Williams head to Tampa but it is looking like they will pick one or the other. So dont count on the Saints having the pick of the litter at LB. 1 or 2 of them will be off the board by the 18th pick.
