Best GM in football.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; He says things like this : "Our scouts do a great job of finding players that help us in the third, fourth or fifth round." Makes me think they don't spend as much time evaluating #1 and #2. Maybe thats ...

Makes me think they don't spend as much time evaluating #1 and #2. Maybe thats why we usually miss on them

Something needs to be done with the scouting for the top rounds.
While its not fair to call them all busts,so many high value and high priced(old CBA)have been wasted.
Who was the last first round pick worthy of that number ?

Under the old CBA, I think they hit 3 in a row with such players from 2004 to 2006:

2004: Will Smith (no matter what the situation is now with him; he deserved the 1st round pick)
2005: Jammal Brown
2006: Reggie Bush (just the buzz his pick created alone justified a 1st round pick, and he did have 1st round talent even though maybe not the 2nd pick of the year)

I remember a bit about the hype around Bush but the other two where before my time as a fan.I was watching football but as a neutral.

Mickey is good. Not the best. If he were the best, we'd have cap space as the Patriots do every year.

Well its debatable why they are always looking good. One thing for sure, they don't overpay for anyone and they know how to let players go. We have always held on to players longer than we should and the fan base don't help the cause.
FinSaint and K Major like this.
