this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; they can move Smith to LB. What you have to realize unless someone was going to give us something worthwhile... and we are looking at talent as Smith has... I\'d say grab him. You can find a position for him ...

The only way our pick will be worth a lick is if Will Smith plays at the LB position where he can use his speed, athleticism, and quickness. If we attempt to trade a guy (Darren Howard) who has played well in the past and dedicated a part of his prime time in the NFL to the saints half ass organization, I think I will .....well im not sure but it wont be good...

The amusing part about the drafting of Smith was , that the Pats were looking to move up to the Saints pick at 18 and then the Saints would have had some extra pick in a later round to take the second best DE at 21 .

If the Saints are going to make Smtih a linebacker project player , he could have been had a 21 ....

One thing is certain.We have a log jam at the DE position,which will make for plenty of competition in training camp.We\'ve got Howard,Grant,Williams,Whitehead,and Smith.Competition could bring out the best in everyone.This could also allow them to use multiple blitz packages depending on a certain players strengths.

As far as the LB corps goes,they will have Rodgers,Ruff,D. Smith,Cie Grant,Watson,Hodge,Allen,and maybe W. Smith.This could also provide good competition as well as allow for multiple blitz/coverage packages depending on a players strengths

The CB position still needs a boost.Craft will help to add a few int\'s this year,but he is not a shutdown corner.I don\'t think Venturi\'s schemes depend on shutdown corners.his schemes depend on disruption up front and strong play from the safety position.Someone like will poole in the 4th could help.I would also look at FS Etric Pruitt.He has a non stop motor and is a great special teams player.

Let\'s not forget,there are probably some real gems left in this draft.It\'s not over yet.Remember where Tom Brady was drafted?I\'m not ready to judge this book yet !


See yall at the dome on sunday !
