Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Itís uncommon to see a franchise address their need at offensive guard with a top-10 pick. The last time that a true offensive guard was drafted that high came in 1997. With the No. 10 pick, the New Orleans Saints drafted Chris Naeole. Since 2000, no guard has been drafted higher than No. 15.

Does this mean that a team would never consider an offensive guard with a top-ten pick? Not necessarily. Letís revisit the 2001 NFL Draft. With the No. 2 pick, the Arizona Cardinals drafted Leonard Davis. Although Davis was drafted as an offensive tackle, he spent his first three seasons as an offensive guard.

so history says bpa just maybe an OG/OC

I just find it difficult in today's NFL to see a GM taking him with that risk of not playing before the fourth round...

But I'm crushing on him almost as bad as Ogletree...

If we take Vaccaro over Ogletree, I think I'll have Malcolm Jenkins over Clay Matthews flashbacks and throw up to the point I'll have to attend to the local ER for dehydration...

Hagan has told me that won't happen, but I think he's just trying to be friend and limit how long I'll be sick if we take a Safety in a deep safety draft over an impact LB that could play all four (Mike, Will, Sam, Jack) linebacker spots and actually start immediately...

But times have changed. With so many offenses using 2 and 3 step drops instead of the old 5 to 7 step drops, the interior linemen have inched up the scale of importance (or OT's have inched downward), and I think Brees and our offense are the Pioneers of that shift.

I think OG's and OC's are more respected now than in any time in NFL history.

Rest easy Jeanpierre, there's folk out there that want Vaccarro much worse than we do. We could make out alright because of that.

Re: 2013 NFL Draft - Saints Big Board

Why can't they move the draft around each year, like the Superbowl?!?

If the draft were hosted in New Orleans, you know from across the country that it would be better attended, better wined, better dined...

Of course, it won't happen on Rodge's watch...
