this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Coach Jim Haslett and director of player personnel Rick Mueller believe high draft picks should be impact players. So don't look for the club to draft a linebacker, offensive lineman or safety at No. 18 unless he is truly special. ...

I agree with OL (unless he\'s Gallery) and Safeties (I wouldn\'t draft Sean Taylor with a an early 1st) ...But LINEBACKERS??????

Is Ray Lewis an IMPACT Player?

I hope this is a Vilma smokescreen. He will be an IMPACT player.

NOTE: This was posted on ESPN...
Vilma is the inside linebacker, Williams plays the outside. They\'ve been together for four seasons. They currently share an apartment as they prepare for the draft. They have the same agent, Mitch Frankel. From the looks of the draft, they could be selected back-to-back toward the middle of the first round.


The Saints have the 18th pick in the first round and like both linebackers although Vilma probably has the edge. The Vikings pick next. While they lean toward selecting Vilma, they\'d be happy to get Williams. They currently have seven linebackers under contract including middle linebacker Greg Biekert, who is expected to retire. The Vikings are scrambling to sign a restricted free agent linebacker to add the numbers at the position.
They\'re losing their poker faces...

BTW: I wouldn\'t draft anyone at 18 unless they were \"truly special\"

Posted that pic months ago. Get it right, Danno.

And after last year, I\'m suprised any of you would believe a single thing that comes out of Haslett\'s mouth regarding the draft. Smoke smoke smoke. So DT is an impact position, but LB is not? Phsssssh.
