Best and most worrisome picks in 2014 NFL Draft


The New Orleans Saints got faster by adding Brandin Cooks (No. 20), an explosive receiver who can play the slot and hit the home run on the outside for coach Sean Payton. Stanley Jean-Baptiste (No. 58) is a large cornerback who could match up with the big pass-catchers in Atlanta and Tampa Bay.

Like I said-
John-the-Baptiste will eventually line up against Jimmy-the-bastid.

Yes we are winners. With the talent level already on the team we need just a few more pieces.

Re: Really!!! With 2 picks saints classified as winners?

The reason we are classified as winners is because 1.)we got the reveiver who some draft pundits considered to be the most NFL ready out of all the receivers(he runs the entire route tree) and 2.)we needed a CB and got one who represents the new breed of big CB who can also run and catch the football(former WR). We filled the holes we needed and still got much needed depth.

I would MUCH rather we get only two impact players than a dozen "just another guys" like some around here wish.

We picked arguably the highest impact player in the draft behind Watkins. We got the new wave of CB, tall and long,
Then we picked a Butkis finalist who even at this moment claims to be 100% healthy who would have been drafted much higher without the injury concerns.
I didn't like the 2nd half of our draft that much, but we knocked it out in the 1st half

Of course we are winners, the draft made us better, period. It made every team better. Look outside of the box and see the positives of the draft instead of knocking all of the picks. Look, we picked at 27. That means our team was pretty damn good already. I trust our organization from top to bottom. I'm gonna have to ship you a FAITH bumper sticker dude.

Re: Really!!! With 2 picks saints classified as winners?

You've got two possible starters from day one. That's not a bad haul from one draft. We also added depth with players that have a huge upside. And we are bringing in some quality UDFA's. Our players are high character smart players and will only make our locker room stronger.
That's sounds pretty solid to me.

Again, this team was a handful of plays from the NFCCC and possibly Superbowl.

They added key pieces in FA, drafted a difference maker on offense and seem to have improved Special Teams which has been an achilles heel in recent years.

If you're looking for a big splash this wasn't the year it would happen.
