Oh, well.
I doubt this kid will be ready to step into Harpers spot anytime soon, and Hicks is a DT, so I don't think the looming suspensions had anything to do with either of these picks.

That's because you're looking at it wrong. The Saints draft from the BPA on their board... not everyone else's.

corner to safety worked out for jenkins. there is an obvious need for a safety with cover skills after the last to playoff losses

These last two picks in White and Tiller are sketchy to me, but Loomis has never failed me before so I'll just go with it and wish them a great career as a Saint.

Pretty much how I'm rolling with. All we have are these online scouting reports to go off of... so it's real easy to feel negative about these picks. I'm going to keep an open mind and hope for the best. It's better than saying "Oh man, this guy sucks! There are a handful of players much better than him." Well, then why are they still on the draft board and these guys aren't?

It's all a crap shoot. Given our track record, why not keep an open mind.

But also, given our recent track record with Al Woods, Chip Vaughn, Stanley Arnoux, Demario Pressley and Andy Alleman, we have some counter-points to the trust factor.

I do trust these guys more than anyone we've had in the past, but that doesn't mean they're always right.

True. On that note, I'm just saying keep and open mind... not pumping sunshine to everyone. I absolutely understand the criticism of the picks, but why dwell and focus on their negatives. In actuality, none of us have a single clue about any of these guys.

We didn't have a first or second, just didn't want this place to pile on the gloom.
