The one QB I wouldn't mind taking
 
Ryan Griffin, QB, Tulane

While we're a long way from needing Drews replacement (as I've vehemently defended countless times), I wouldn't mind spending our 6th on this guy. He could develop into a good back-up and after a year or two on the practice squad/53 roster he may also draw some trade interest, especially if Chase Daniel does well in KC.

If Chase does well it should translate into other teams taking note of how Sean develops QB's and it may be an opportunity to acquire a solid back-up AND present some trade value if he shines in pre-season games and occasional regular season duty.

Just a thought.

He's getting some positive buzz now so I don't think he'll be an UDFA.

Definitely a fan of us getting griffin, I think under drew and seans guidance he could become a very good QB and maybe even our future

I dont think he will be an UDFA, he has all the intangibles you look for in a QB, I think we could get him between 5th-7th round

All the more reason to accept the Jets lesser draft pick

Watched him play in person. I like the guy. I would like to see Colton Browning from ULM next year. Guy reminds me a lot of Brees but has some wheels.

I've only read good things about him although I've never seen him play. We may need to use every pick on defense except for OT.

Lot of good buzz about this kid.

Didn't I read somewhere that we had shown interest in him? I wouldn't mind having him either.

If they can get him with a late pick,fine. Give Sean Payton a young QB to groom.

Also, I think Curtis Johnson ran the Saints offense at Tulane last year, so, that should help him get up to speed.

Posted this before about him on the draft thread, and as a Tulane alum I've got to see him play, so let me say that when he was finally surrounded with some talent at the Texas v. World Bowl Game - he really jumped out as a Quarterback...

We brought him in to look didn't we. I would think late round pick
