Re: Mayock

Kind of hard to address all needs with the limited number of picks!

Unlike other teams, we don't a half-dozen compensatory picks to work with or our second rounder because Goodell hates us.

Re: Mayock

We also needed safety help, an offensive tackle, WR depth, and being that we've moved to a 3-4, a big projectable NT. And last I checked, Rufus Johnson will be a OLB as he's too small to play end in a 3-4.

Re: Mayock

LBs Thomas and Reddick as UDFA--both projected middle round draft picks. Shut up, Mayock.

Re: Mayock

Yeah, Reddick was projected as a 4-5 round pick and Thomas was projected as a 3-4 round pick by DraftScout, so I think the Saints did well to land them as UDFAs.

Re: Mayock

So we get knocked for not drafting for need?

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.

Re: Mayock

Unfortunately UDFAs arent draft picks.... His job is to grade the draft, not what happens after it. With the limited number of draft picks we could have done better. We did do well, nobody is saying that we didn't do well. But not as well as we could have.....

- We let Pittsburgh get Jarvis Jones for nothing.
- Okafor fell past the point of no return and we still didn't pick him
- You could have done the deal with the Jets and just used the pick and still got your guy moving up was probably un-needed.

Just grading our draft alone... We hit a double, not a home run...

Re: Mayock

We actually have some very good linebackers on the roster, I'm sure Rob Ryan will do better with them than Spags did.

Re: Mayock

Cause we didn't do exactly what him and the other 'analysts' expected. Get over it, Mike.
