FailClowns @Saints Game Day Thread

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I wonder if we'll finally get to see Jean-Baptiste next week since it'll be a meaningless game. Who knows what kind of contribution we could've gotten this season from a different 2nd round pick....

The only draft worth sweating is if it is real ale

Glad this season is over. I can't think of a more than a handful of enjoyable moments from the ENTIRE season.

You do realize it was known from the start of the season that SJB would not play any this season, right?

Rob Ryan even said a couple of weeks ago(again), that he was a project and they knew it when they drafted him.

That Nebraska played a whole different coverage scheme than Rob Ryan does and that it would take him a year for Baptiste to get where Ryan wanted him...

Which is what I see wrong with our whole draft process

While other teams draft NFL ready players, we spend a SECOND rounder on a guy that's played the position for nearly 2 years because he MIGHT develop into something decent

Look how that's turned out for us.

And after learning that scheme he will probably need to learn a new one next year. Rob like the past two DC will be one of the sacrificial lambs while Vitt,McMahon will stay on

So? Doesn't change the fact that we'll never know what kind of contribution we could've gotten from a different pick. Am I supposed to be happy that we wasted a 2nd round pick on a guy we had no intention of even using?

Yeah, he may be a 6'3" beast of a corner next year....(you/we have no idea) Anyways, I'll trust our "professionals" involved in the draft process over anyone spouting off on here.

There's a reason they have the job and why no one here is employed by a team...
