Offensive coordinator Pete Carmichael said it wasn't necessarily losing WR Robert Meachem in free agency pushed the Saints to take WR Nick Toon in the fourth round. Carmichael feels Toon will play more that one WR spot because of his intelligence. Carmichael also said Toon's speed is better than people give Toon credit for.

Tanner and Morgan will have a bit of competition......good. More position battles mean better play.
Which one of these guys tore his Achilles? I believe that can slow you down for a couple of years and may be why we spent a draft pick on a WR.

Arrington better watch out....everybody's assuming he has the #4 spot locked up, but Toon could push him.

He certainly has the blood line. We were going to take a WR somewhere in the draft, so here he is. No issues with the pick and I think he'll give us solid production when called upon. I'd like to see us address the secondary or OL with our next pick.

6000 yds. There's only one game to run clock and that's SB.

The moment I heard this from analyst I knew this was a great pick......

"Not impressive size and speed combination but he has great hands and runs solid routes"

Good job......Now, why would we go after Crick? If Loomis really wanted him they would have taken him in the 3rd. I think we got our DT for the future.

This kid is a good wide receiver. I like the pick to add some stability to the receiving corps.
