I'd say a developmental LT in the middle to late rounds, kinda like Jones, but better, and maybe a veteran journeyman as an emergency back-up.

Bushrod is an OK LT. I think he's a better LT than Strief is as a RT.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I think that the priority should be with the defensive line, followed by the offensive tackles, and either a Sam LB or a playmaking safety.

But, as always, they should go with the BPA and listen to any and all potential trades to grow their pick pool, especially if the league doesn't return the 2nd round pick.

As for Bushrod, I agree with Danno's assessment about him being better at his position than Strief is at his, but that is not a high compliment as Strief has been under performing the whole season even before his injury woes. Still, if Bushrod isn't willing to re-sign with a pay cut, I think they should let him go as they did with Goodwin two seasons a go.


Oh, and please no players who need to be converted into another position or a different scheme to fit the defense of the Saints!

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

I know how bad we are at DE, OLB, and Safety...

That said, I'm starting my campaign for Jake Matthews, OT, Texas A&M for the Saints First Round Draft Pick...

You don't get guys that come around the league that often with this kind of pedigree and DNA - his Dad was Bruce Matthews who tied Merlin Olsen for the League Record for Career ProBowls - if we get half of that, then it's a steal in the draft...

And this kid can play and have an immediate impact...

No Way he is still available by the time pick number 16 comes around. St Louis has two picks almost back to back, Philly at pick number 5 might want an upgrade at LB as well as Carolina at pick number 6. Nice thought, but much like going to the superbowl this year it is a pipe dream. Sorry

In trying to stay positive and be happy we will have a high pick and be able to rebuild the defence and that when coach P gets back and we roll through everyone next year.
Hopefully we get Sean Payton back. If that happens I am certain he has had more than enough time to analyze all of the games we played this year and will have some immediate changes he wants to make. He had the best view of all the coaches. By being on the outside with the fan base looking in he got to see everything the fans were seeing. Imagine what an entire season off can do for a coach like Payton. Lots of time to think and strategize. In a way it is probably better the Saints didn't make it to the playoffs this year because they probably would think they didn't need Payton back.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

From Walter Football...

13. New Orleans Saints: Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri
Sedrick Ellis has been a bust. He'll be hitting free agency this March, so it's unlikely he'll be back with the team. Canadian Akiem Hicks has played well, but the Saints need someone next to him who can rush the passer on the interior. Sheldon Richardson, who has been phenomenal this season, could be that guy.




73. New Orleans Saints: Tank Carradine, DE, Florida State

The Saints aren't getting much pressure on the quarterback. Cameron Jordan has improved in this department over the second half of the season, but Will Smith looks like a shell of his former self. He's due $10 million in 2013, so he obviously won't be back.
