For all those ready for the draft...

Finding a pass-rusher is certainly an option here, but with four D-lineman already off the board, I think the Saints simply go with the best player available, regardless of position.

Brandon Scherff is not only a nasty, bruising blocker who will give the team a new identity in the trenches, but he's capable of thriving at either tackle position or on the inside as a guard, a la Zack Martin.

Re: For all those ready for the draft...

All this talk about Evans being cut.
If people are hoping for that i think there are going to be some very unhappy people around. I can see restructured deals for both Grubbs and Evans probably Colston too but out right cuts i doubt it. i do not see the front office,coach or Brees liking the idea of starting the season with two new pieces in the interior of the line. I think they restructure one of the guards they want to keep long term this year and then let one go next year after a new Center/Lelito has had a year to bed in beside two vets. Asking Lelito to play at center next to a rookie is asking for trouble.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

It's hard to make a splash in FA when we so strapped in salary cap plus the situation with cam Jordan. Not saying its impossible with the signing of Byrd yet we did lose Sproles. Chances are we going to lose:

Marques Colston
Jahri Evans
Mark Ingram
Ramon Humber
Patrick Robinson
