2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I could go for a DT and a DE with the first two picks, but I think they might want to try and expand their number of picks through some trade downs if at all possible....

The draft is fluid, dynamic and just like games there will need to be adjustments - but I'm not sure we can afford to trade down as we're in real need of some impact players at DE, OT, OLB, S/DB (Depending on what happens with Jenkins)...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

1st/3rd round pick needs to be used on D-Line and O-Line; I agree with JP, we need 2 impact starters from the beginning there. We don't have the luxury this year of stock-piling picks...

Yeah, but trading down from the 1st to early 2nd could still get them an impact player and maybe also get a 3rd rounder for it.

I'm just saying that they should really try and fill as many holes in the draft as they can, because the new CBA makes rookies very affordable and they need to make some savings in the 53 man roster.

They can always try and use some of those savings to sign a proven veteran impact player from the FA pool if they decide not to re-sign Graham during this offseason.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

#1 is a defensive lineman that can get consistent push, especially in Spags defense. The O is good with what we have. We may not break records and score 50 points per game, but 24-28 per game will be great with a running game and a stronger D. Where's Walter Thomas these days :P

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Depending on where Saints lineup in the draft...

But I'm bullish on Jake Matthews, OT Texas A&M...

I'm trending towards a proven, complement to Cam Jordan in Free Agency rather than the first round of the draft and here's why -

I don't think I could take drafting another defensive lineman in the first round who's best first move is on the senior deacon in a sunday baptist buffet line...

Besides, defensive ends typically have a prime life of three-four, maybe five years?!? I'd rather get a free-agent rental than invest a possible top 10 draft pick for a player that has five-six years with us...

Yep, free-agents to shore up weakness and draft BPA except at obvious non-need positions QB, OG, LDE, MLB, etc...

I'm not so sure we don't need to look at drafting a QB...

...I love Drew, but he's no spring chicken and his long ball is starting to have some drama to it...

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Don't know how, but the fourth option in the poll was Defensive Tackle?!?

And has Hagan published his Wish List for the Draft?
