For all those ready for the draft...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; And for those who were 3 weeks before we were eliminated - a question: Will one draft class really be enough to right the ship? We've got so many holes we need to draft a handful of pro bowl starters ...

We've got so many holes we need to draft a handful of pro bowl starters and I don't see that happening.

We usually address our needs in free agency.

2006 Draft Class was pretty impactful.

A good guard and a good center and we are back to having the number one offense in football. a healthy Armstead, Cooks and Byrd cant hurt either. Get a good linebacker and I think we just need a middle of the pack defense.

I agree! Our good center is already on the roster in Lelito I believe

We could really bolster the O Line next year by drafting the OT from a&m. Move Armstead to Guard being how athletic he is

We don't need that much. An inside LB to replace Hawthorne, something resembling a #2 corner, a stud guard and a new year/fresh start. This was a snakebitten season from the 1st game.

NT is a need also. No push = a long day. I could see a C and G being drafted. My main concern is an ILB. Then solid depth on both the O and the D. I think we can pick up a good #2 CB in FA.

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

This team is so freaking stupid and frustrating to watch. You give your div rival a Quarterback and lose a top 10 pick. Good job saints couldnt have capped it any worse. Thank the lord galette didnt get that sack bonus screw him.
