He'll be paid 1 million more than Gronk (average salary)
We overpaid then by a bunch

Gronk is twice the player Jimmy is.

Yep, and so rarely overpay our players. What a head scratcher.

zach has is head screwed on straight. as usual
Strief got it right. But you know, it reminds me of a sketch:
They were fighting for their lives.
I am glad they were not fighting for mine.

Notice how I said eventually UK, it seems like that's not yet.

Cooks has the makings of a great player in the first round, we just desperately need a couple on defense.

The only problem with that I read somewhere Brandon Schreff has injury concerns, that would scare me a bit.

If Saints draft top 10 I'd like to see Shane Ray or Shaq Thompson.

I agree with Shaq Thompson, although i gotta say im not thrilled with anyone on Defense in this draft. I wanna watch more tape on shaq, but his athleticism at the LB spot is a plus. Just wanna know for sure if that can translate...can afford to add some weight as well.

Im not on the Shane Ray band wagon....is a great athlete & good pass rusher, but thats about all he's good for right now. & we already have that in Junior Gallete. JR may have the most QB hurries, but it doesnt seem to affect the game like a wagner, kuechly, willis, bowman & sadly there isnt one of those in this draft....that we know of YET. & where would he play with Cam, Akiem & Junior all having spots? Idk if that pick makes the most sense... Desperately need that impact LB who can play sideline to sideline/Cover. Alot more pass rushers in this draft than coverage LB's.

Re: Draft Selection Slot

Holy crap, I just saw our schedule for next year at the bottom of that article. If we get our offseason right in 2015 we have every chance of bouncing back.

The closest player to Willis is Denzel Perryman ILB Miami. He would be my #1 pick and I agree there are alot of 1 trick ponies in this years draft, very few well rounded. Perryman is well rounded. I look for JR. to play that 1 trick pony roll,hell he really is good at it so why go after another, I think Powell and Ediboli can run containment and JR. can go on passing downs. It's really the middle getting exposed and JR. overpersuing
