To make that statement you are saying that Eli Manning is the only reason for the super bowl wins? Your telling me that one player traded for after he was drafted won those super bowls? Their defense had nothing to do with it?

Eli has two Super Bowl rings:
2007 - 16 ranked defense in points per game, and 4th best rushing team in the league.
2011 - 6th ranked defense in the NFL

Re: 2013 NFL Draft for New Orleans

We are only a few players away from a complete team that can win the Superbowl. If there is a player who is obviously going to be an impact player Get Him!!! We need play makers now.
We almost always draft BPA and that's fine for building depth. However, I don't think that drafting a player to trade is such a great idea........it seems to me that when we trade a player we don't get what the fans view as a good value.
We don't have the money to fill these positions of need in free agency. So, we need to fill those position inexpensively through the draft.jmho

Re: 2013 NFL Draft for New Orleans

My personal opinion is you always draft BPA. If you have two or more players graded out fairly close you prioritize your needs, but if it comes down to a non-need position and there is a player not yet drafted that sticks out you still take him.

So if every round the BPA is a RB, do you pick 7 RB's?

Re: 2013 NFL Draft for New Orleans

Let's plug in holes via both free agency and the draft. And when I say holes, I mean "defense."

Re: 2013 NFL Draft for New Orleans

If I'm GM, I'm moving to satisfy a need position as my salary cap is going to have me restricted in the free agent market; or I hire the best position coaches in the world to some how polish my turds into diamonds - yeah, right...

Aggressive trading to move to get the guys I need and hope my scouting department hasn't mailed in the check yet again...

Switch 'RB' to 'WR' and 'yes', and you have the Lions' draft strategy for the past umpteen years ... and 'no', it doesn't work, . You eventually get to a point where you have to diversify a little bit and start looking at need and BPA at positions, if they're worth the pick.

At best, the draft is a cruel mistress and double-edged sword.
