Coming out of Baylor, I thought he was the real deal but boy he faded fast.

Maybe he just needs a second chance.

Well he obviously has the physical talent. You don't go that early in the draft without it. the important thing is to analyze why he hasn't been more successful and see if that is something that can be remedied.

Loomis is a freaking genius.

This move puts the FO in a much better place for draft day. Now every other GM/drafting committee knows that we have addressed every position of need through FA and we now have the luxury of being able to draft more along the lines of BPA. When the other GMs know this they also know that they can't count on us to skip any player who may be high on our board, as well as theirs. Which, IMO, makes us ideal candidates for a trade down with several other teams who may be fearful that we could just snatch that player that they covet. And hey, if we end up with Tavon Austin, or we really gonna complain?

Loomis is the man.

Or all other GMs "think" we have all holes filled and Loomis is going after a LT with out concussion history first round.

Something us going to have to give very soon.

With 2.2M in cap space we are short on financial space.

Re: Saints sign Jason Smith, OT

I like it. As mentioned, you don't go #2 overall because you never showed you could be a NFL player. This is a small risk big reward type move and yes, does leverage us a bit with that pick.

We need to free up some cap room though as Oak states and I think that comes in the form of possibly a Roman Harper situation. Does anyone else seem us packaging Harper and our pick to a team with cap room to shift slightly in the draft? I can see us doing that and targeting Vaccaro with our pick.

Re: Saints sign Jason Smith, OT

He will make the team but I don't see him being the Saints future tackle. I want be surpise if we still drafted a tackle or bring someone else in but hey he may come around and be the answer.
