Re: Mayock

3-4 linebackers are like running backs, a dime a dozen. Get a guy that's big and fast and he'll have success. Less responsibility and less decision-making, and a more defined role from play to play than he would have in a 4-3.

There's a reason why every single team that runs a 3-4 is known for having good linebackers. And we still have Vilma/Lofton/Hawthorne even if they didn't acquire another single LB. Those guys aren't exactly dog meat out there.

Yes, Mayock is an idiot. You only have to look at his draft board to see the Saints were taking players that graded out well above the ones in surrounding draft spots. Saints had a fine draft.

I thought it was common knowledge that drafting for need leads to failure.

So I'll bet the 49ers got an A since they addressed every need position and every non-need position.


The only team that got an A was the vikings. Everything else Bs and Cs.

Re: Mayock

After we passed on Jarvis Jones, and Jamie Collins didn't fall to us I really didn't expect or care for the Saints to draft a linebacker. With the Signing of Victor Butler, if we couldn't land a legitimate pass rushing OLB early in the draft there wasn't that much of a reason to worry about it in the later rounds.

And as has been mentioned, we got middle round prospects as UDFA's, so that settles it.

And makes our cap much more manageable.

Re: Mayock

Only grade that matters is W's and Ls
IMHO we did well on paper. The W's and Ls in Jan are the only grades that mean anything.
