The Saints have had the fewest amount of draft picks in the NFL since 2006

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Even if we were in the 75 player range in draft picks, its 23 more players to evaluate from and if 3 would fill in even as depth we would be better off, and if they became starters it that ...

Even if we were in the 75 player range in draft picks, its 23 more players to evaluate from and if 3 would fill in even as depth we would be better off, and if they became starters it that much better. Prime examples our lb.'er core and O-line depth.

a accumulate picks to address depth upgrades

when the core is reestablished then go out and spend the big bucks on solid impact players

they do not let the team be held hostage by just a few players.

get the depth first
let replaceable players walk as fa and get the comp picks
get mid level fa to fill the gaps the bench can not
draft to replenish the depth
then bang FA
they plan this out better than any team in the nfl.
Of course it helps that NE plays in one of the weakest divisions in football; they can afford to develop younger players because they have time.

granted but you still gotta make the run in the playoffs.

On the flip side that is still my #1 issue with the Byrd signing. probably no division in the NFL has had such poor QB play or revolving door at QB like the AFC East. not saying he is not any good just a point to make me question the money spent

Now the way i see the pats system working is this

throw a bunch of darts in the draft. get a starter and a solid back up your ahead of the game

go into FA and plug the holes you missed the previous year.

play the season

repeat

they do not care about missing on 12 if they get at least one. milk a couple till you can replace them in the next couple of years. via draft or FA

mid level FA is their meat and potatoes

draft is the gravy and/or the salt and pepper

So, as Rezburna says, 2 Super Bowls in the top. 1 Super Bowl in the bottom. Doesn't seem to matter.
