In the six drafts since Sean Payton became the head coach of the New Orleans Saints in 2006, the organization has made a living mining mid- to late-round talent.

If they didnít contribute immediately, many of them eventually grew into prominent roles with time and proper nurturing in Paytonís system.

All-Pro guards Jahri Evans and Carl Nicks, whoís now with the Tampa Bay Bucs, came to the Saints in the fourth and fifth rounds, respectively, while tackle Jermon Bushrod was a fourth-rounder who became a Pro Bowler this past season.

And starting right tackle Zach Strief and star wide receiver Marques Colston were seventh-round selections ó as low as you can go in the draft ó taken with the 210th and 252nd overall picks, respectively.

More than ever this year, the Saints will have to rely on trying to come up with the players who slip through the cracks when the three-day NFL draft starts Thursday night.

Actually, itís a two-day draft for the Saints.

Barring a trade up, which General Manager Mickey Loomis said last week was unlikely, the Saints wonít go on the clock until the third round with the 89th overall selection ó about 27 hours after the draft begins.

I don't know about that. Give him the football and he'll walk into the end zone untouched every time. It's probably in the rule book somewhere... if not he'll just make one up. He'd easily go #1 overall.

The 5th and 6th round choices are relatively close together. We do have very good success with later round draft picks and hopefully we will continue. I think Reprish is doing a fine job of college scouting. We get two picks close together. So the talent level may return two good prospects.

no we didn't; we traded our first last year for Mark Ingram, Roger only took 2 #2's and we might get next years back...
