Re: Saints Team Needs as per PFT

McNown and Wallace will battle it out for the clipboard. I wouldnt use a draft pick on a QB. Unless a top 3 OT falls to #15 I don't see us Picking OT in rd 1. There is depth @ DT, DE, S. CB That is the good news,the bad news is no2nd. I am hoping to trade down and getting a 2nd rd pick

I agree with your assessment of DLP's performances last year, which is why picking up someone like Barrett Jones would be very good for the overall production of the O-line going into the future.

Re: Saints Team Needs as per PFT

I think the FO will fill the OL holes, late in the draft. They seem to always find talented OL late in the draft. I think Gallette, Butler and Wilson are gonna get there shot to be true pass rushers in this league. However, I think ILB is a huge hole as Vilma and Hawthorne may not fit well there. Tackle machine Lofton is gonna need some help. In the first round, I think the Texas kid Vaccarro is probably gonna be our pick. I'm also keeping a watchful eye on Tavon Austin.....Payton may not be able to restrain himself and I can't blame him. I'm surprised nobody has mentioned our need for another ILB.

I JUST WANNA HEAR IT...." GO SAINTS ALL THE WAY SAINTS GO ALL THE WAAAAY GO SAINTS ALL THE WAY SAINTS GO ALL THE WAAAAY ( I BELIEVE)!!!!!!! GOD I LOVE THAT SONG!!!!!!

If we don't go OT in the first then I hope we go safety. There are several good ones in this year draft and we could snag one in the first or we could move back and still have a shot at another safety they had targeted.

If a safety is the BPA when we pick, I'm OK with it.

But we have much much bigger needs than either safety position.

I do like Vacarro, although he's just a younger version of Harper, and I really like Reid and Elam in the 2nd, if we had a 2nd.

But I just can't imagine there not being a higher rated OL, LB, DT, DE, WR, CB there when we pick.

You must not have been reading the threads that carefully.

Re: Saints Team Needs as per PFT

I had a hard time getting past that picture. It looks like Sean wants to tussle with someone and Loomis is holding him back.

I wouldn't be upset if the Saints picked up an OT in the first round and see if Brown could handle the right side perhaps.
