B
with this draft, we have moved closer to the playoffs next yr......
more changes are to come, but now, we've taken steps to provide quality backups...
a few on offense(which in my opinion is very needed) and a few on defense....which definitely won't hurt.....
what would you have done being faced with who was on board at the time the saints chose at 18th? reach or best player? looks like they went with best player.......i'll go on record now saying if they beat seattle in the opener we will make the playoffs..

well if we can get a better pass rush our secondary will be better for one.

The only thing IMHO that kept this draft from being an A was the fact they didn\'t address the corner with any pick. All of the other picks were solid and they focused on need areas such as linebacker, fullback, and receiver. Not that receiver was really a need, but Devery Henderson will certainly help. I agree with swamee on this one, though. I give them an overall grade of B

I concur....every pick made sense to me.

Anyone that follows the Saints faithfully knows that Haz is extremely disappointed with Stallworth\'s performance(with the injuries), and everyone knows that he was POed at Horn\'s antics last season. However I think the Henderson pick had more to do with him being able to challenge Pathon for the 3rd WR spot.

I must say they address the lb position but it is kinda disappointing not to pick up a corner. I hope they sign Dale Carter back or make a move for Mike Mckenzie & Charles Woodson. It is hard to picture Jason Craft or Fakhir Brown as the #2 corner. They are quality corners but i would prefer a taller cover corner or shut down corner.

Well I like Henderson... he is a play maker. think of the problems defenses will have against us. I don\'t think we got quality back ups though... most of the ones we got are starters. Each one will be able to come in and contribute.
