Here's the because they have two dynamic ones who I know Shawn would love to put on his team. Have you ever seen a 6'2 Reggie Bush, thats how Cordelle Patterson is descrbed!!!! And Justin Hunter who is said to be the better of the two gets wide open on most routes but has an issue with drops.... I remember Devery and Meach had that same issue!!!!

Drafting a WR in the first or third round would be a waste. We need OT and DE. Safety help wouldn't be bad either. **** it...take a RB!!!

Re: Sean Payton admits the Saintsí top priority is defense in the draft

If players that could fall and still be there at #15 like Lotulelei, Rhodes, Johnson, or Fluker aren't there, I hope the Saints can trade down. Two of the most mentioned here like Mingo and Jones just aren't worthy of a top #15 pick. They'll probably be good players but I don't see them having the impact the Saints need or the slot warrants. I'd rather have Collins in the 2nd. Equal talent and better value. If the Saints have to stay at #15, I'd rather they take Austin than Mingo or Jones. He will make more plays for the team than the two OLB's. And lets face it, it's going to be on the offense to carry the load this season.

It seems like I've heard about 20 different players that won't be there at 15....I'm no mathematician,but I'm sure one of these players will be there

Im not sure about your point about Austin over Mingo. You can go a long way with fixing a bad defense with getting a little pressure on the qb and with a hard working athletic freak. He could be a bust but if you cant trade down and mingo is their I would not mind that pick at all. Of course I am not an NFL scout and have no idea who the saints love. According to one report they are high on Tank. I just hope we find a trade partner before we draft someone who will be there ten or so picks later

Re: Sean Payton admits the Saintsí top priority is defense in the draft

I could see us picking offense if any of the tackles fall, or WR's Austin or Patterson, but only if the top DE/DT/OLB's are gone.
