Adding rookie gives Saints versatile trio of defensive ends


Monday, May 03, 2004
By Jeff Duncan
Staff writer
One of the many pearls of wisdom Jim Haslett gleaned from Raiders owner Al Davis during his two-year stint as an Oakland assistant concerned draft strategy.

"Al told me, 'In the first round, you always take guys that score touchdowns or guys that prevent them, like cornerbacks and defensive linemen,' " Haslett said.

Those words popped into Haslett's head when he was asked about the Saints' decision to select yet another defensive lineman in the first round of the NFL draft.

That\'s funny, the Raiders took an Offensive Tackle in this year\'s draft.

Don\'t all defenders attempt to stop touchdowns? These are the words of wisdom that our coach follows.

Hey Jim, in the first round, you always take a guy who wears a helmet.
