Saints Draft Grade - B Plus

I was planing on worse case senerio for the Saints... and bam it happened but I didn\'t figure Smith falling to 18. But somehow I think Saints inc. felt it would happen or was prepared as I was for something like this happening... the whole Vilma/Williams/CB\'s/WR and QB thing happening there was a rush on for those positions and bam there was Smith a DE and possible LB... a versatile, athlete, and great person. STEAL. I thought we might get lucky and have WIlliams land in our laps though.
Good point. How many times did we point out that if our consensus top 4 were gone, a sure-fire stud would have slipped to us. It was a win-win either way.

Now when Howard goes down in week 3 with another injury, we won\'t skip a beat.

Will Smith may end up being a fine player. We all know we have issues in at LB. My point is that a guy like Wilfork,available with no maneuvering, makes the LB\'s job that much easier. If everyone thinks Smith was the BPA then so be it. My feelings are from a OVERALL need stand point Wilfork would have been a more solid pick. Also, I felt the 2nd pick could have been better utilized by selecting a different position. Maybe Horn is leaving? Stallworth has been hampered with injury. Gardner has many personal issues but was never alowed to show his stuff on the field. I think Pathon is way under utilized, giving the illusion of being an average receiver. I realize Henderson is fast. So is Lewis, but I seem to remember a fumbling issue. Our third pick was a great needs picks. The third round will just be glossed over......... :casstet: And FB was a good pick.....probably the best pick to be made at that point in the draft.

Don't want 'em to get your goat....don't show 'em where it's hid

I wanted Wilfork also. But the main knocks on him were controlling his weight and taking plays off.

Kinda reminds me of our previous 7 DT\'s we\'ve tried.

LMAO! Nice 08.

Saintfan - I think Howard will be fierce this season. I\'m ready. Optimism? Sure, if you say so - I just think the guy is an animal when healthy. This is the year that he\'ll stay healthy. That doesn\'t necessarily mean we\'ll be a good team.
