Saints currently slated for 10th pick in NFL draft - New Orleans Saints Blog - ESPN

Could be picking anywhere between 7th - 14th

I personally wanna see for myself exactly where SJB, Seantavious, Griffin, Virgil, Powell & the others are at in their development. Why risk the injury? Lets hope for lucky number 7, especially with the cap hell we have going on. & for those who keep coming up with trade/cut scenarios pertaining to Graham, Gallete, etc....its not going to happen. The cap hits we would take = no. Dead money.

I have not seen us develope any positions other than the rb. on a continuous basis. Developing players in the Saints organization are few and far in between. This is on the coaches at their positions to do this. The D is in far worst shape than the O but the O needs to be fixed also. Not a coach or player should be safe after this season ends, Graham, JR. it should not matter if they don't produce let them go. Other teams do it all the time. Look no farther than Meachum going to the Chargers, they paid alot of money, seen it wasn't going to work out and let him go. We need to get the players that fit the scheme.

Re: Draft Selection Slot

Saints offensive tackle Zach Strief pointed out one of New Orleans’ biggest motivators: auditioning for jobs in 2015.

Strief also added: “And you’re playing not just for yourself, you’re playing for your family, you’re playing for your teammates, you’re playing for the people here who have faith in you, and you’re playing for your fans. So there’s plenty to play for.


zach has is head screwed on straight. as usual

I see where he is coming from, but cmon zach. One game in a season thats already in the bag should not sway sean from the garbage that was put on display all season long. 15>1. Atta boy tho zach.

Hopefully Sean sticks to his guns & cleans house a bit. Im looking at you joe vitt. Thats numero uno on my list. Like ive said in other posts, ken norton displays what a great position coach can do for a unit & team. Lets make something happen.

Our schedule looks very favorable next year. Hopefully we can get things together

Lol waaay too early to label anything on Kenny. Especially with how the entire unit played, nothing seemed to click. I still like the pick & stand behind it. Lol we're not even a year out of everyone singing his rookie year praises. Alot of analysts predicted a big year. Things just didnt go as planned, but theres ALOT of time for him to develop his game.

Malcolm seemed to be doing his thing in philly this year, was a bigtime playmaker, but then things seemed to fall apart for the team. Probably had to cover bradley fletchers behind too often haha.

Sedrick - YES, 100% agree, lazy & pathetic. Terrible pick.

But like most would agree, our scouts/front office or whoever seem to lack the ability to properly assess talent for our team/scheme. Something has definitely got to change in that area.

Hey, heres to our luck changing this year, right?!

Shaq thompson or Benardrick Mckinney is something we definitely need at LB.

I agree. I would really rather see Scam Newton get eliminated anyway. The falcons are the least of two evils this year for some reason, IMO.

Re: Draft Selection Slot

Unfortunately O-Line is weak early in this draft. So with Saints' in the top 15 picks I would like for a quality D-Line, LB or DE 1st overall. Of which there seems to be an abundance.
