Second, Drew has maybe two good years left with his surgically repaired shoulder...

Third, the value would be there and the player could start developing now...
Mmmm in a perfect world maybe, but with the holes we have?
I also wanted to be the first to use the phrase Dumervilgate! Maybe I could get paid for laying around and making **** up!

There's nothing wrong with methodical, but they do need to gauge values in trading Ivory and Harper, though the latter is unlikely unless the Titans are involved...

NT Jesse Williams 6-3, 320lbs 'Killed It' at Bama ProDay!

Now this is the year the Saints should have jumped back into the first round...

Gonna have to geaux back and look at the game film of Jesse Williams; the measurables are there - just need to find out if he he's a football player to warrant Pick No. 15...

I'm liking him more and more. Maybe he's still a tad raw, but he has two things that generally equate to a great NFL career.

Measurables and Work Ethic.

IIRC he benched 600 pounds at Bama. Uhhhh, 600 lbs?

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

by seasons end i came away with the impression he was soft. work out numbers are nice but i still can not shack that impression. maybe he played up to his level of competition is a better way of looking at. that would also sour me on him. like a few LSU players i will not mention in fear the homers will hang me lol

I am really not liking this spot in the daft. over hyped players driven up the board because of the weakness of the draft in round 1 as a whole. reaching for players that are safer bets because you a good idea of what you are getting.

Just curious...
What medical degree do you have to make that type of statment?

It really annoys me how people comment on how many years the guy has left with his arm and what not...
His arm is solid and I will believe that until his perfomance shows otherwise
