Overrated & Underrated

We should pick me, as much as i know, i\'d be a for sure starter for the WNFL, lol... For all the slow people, Womens National Football League. Most players from big schools are overrated especially players from every conference except the SEC. The SEC is the only conference that has the college equivalent of the NFL and thus is where most of your better players would seem to come out of, except for Florida which doesnt produce much of anything. As for Eli, if he were Eli Brooks, he\'d still be sittin the bench in Mississippi, except he\'d be holding a clipboard.

Saints do not need a WR with the 18th pick, they have enough picks later on that they can pick a WR, I think with one of their later picks if Devery Henderson is still on the board we should think about picking him up, because you can never have too much speed and Stallworth needs a new insurance policy as much as he stays hurt. Osa Lama Laka My Peeps!!

Don\'t you think that Deuce was the best player available when he was drafted?
Coaches go into drafts with and position or two that they want filled, Take last year for instance, We went into the draft to draft a DT ONLY, Haslet had it set in his mind. Under rare circumstances do you pick best player, that only happens when a player like Fitzgerald\'s caliber is still on the board, Like when Duece was left, he wasn\'t suppose to be there, Plus i dont think haslet was all that fond of Ricky and was looking for a Duece type. Best player avaiable is is a stategy used but it\'s not in the First round.

First you said:
No coach uses that, its a smoke screen, people ask the coach who they are going to draft and they say best player avaiable becuase they don\'t want anyone to know untill draft day.
Then you said:
Under rare circumstances do you pick best player, that only happens when a player like Fitzgerald\'s caliber is still on the board, Like when Duece was left, he wasn\'t suppose to be there, Plus i dont think haslet was all that fond of Ricky and was looking for a Duece type. Best player avaiable is is a stategy used but it\'s not in the First round.
Which is it?
You just repeated what I said about Deuce being drafted, and you made the same point that I was making.

Did you read both posts, becuase if you did, then you should understand but i\'ll explain.

Coaches go into the draft , Not with best player avaiable stategy, but to fill a desired position. When somebody of Dueces caliber falls, that throws coaches off their game plan and they grab that player. Right now Haslet is probally going line backer, but if Fitzgerald falls and only him, that is the only person that would set Haslet off his desired path.

top ten prospects only happens like once or twice a draft, its rare and three years ago we were lucky to get Duece.

Again, if everybody was doing best player avaiable then why don\'t Sean Taylor be the 1st overall pick, he might not even be a top ten

CHUCK !!!!!!!! .....Do you really think that Sean Taylor will slip past the 10th overall pick? If he slips past 7 or 8 the saints should trade up and get him. But as we all know (everyone but Chuck that is he will be gone like the wind). So please think before you just post something.

Boccal, I know that chances are he will be a top 5 BUT he is a safety and that is high for a safety, history has shown that only 1 safety in the last TEN YEARS has been taken in the top ten, (williams). and becuase of what history has shown its a possibility that he might fall to a 11th or 12th pick although highly unlikely,

So please think before you just post something.
There will be draft surprises and if you ever try to predict one you are going out on a limb, and with the little knowledge i have im trying to have fun and predict one,

So Mr. Boccal, You have to understand that there are going to be predictions that you don\'t agree with but in the end and when the draft actually happens your going to realize that nobody predicted it excatly right and you just like I and everyone else will be together in realizing that we were all clueless to the final results just like we are every year.

Ok..ok Chuck I see your point, but really do you see him slipping out of the top 10. Since he is the best prospect in the draft. I know that the draft is unpredictable...but i will go out on that limb and say he will be gone by the sixth pick and if thats wrong the 7 or 8 or 9 (I\'ll keep going till he\'s drafted If i have to lol).

I absolutly agree, I\'m just saying that i wouldn\'t be surprised if he was picked between 1 - 12. And I also agree that he is the best prospect.

i guess that no team decides there picks on best player available. it was all a big smokescreen and we were goin for a defense end from the start. :casstet:
