In regards to drafting a OLB/ Pass Rusher

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Maybe but both have been signed to pretty good deals. Id say its easier to get another passrusher late in the draft or next year than find a really good DE for a 3-4 scheme like Williams...

In case you haven't noticed the Titans have the 2nd overall pick. I think they're going to try and patch up any holes they have so they don't have to draft there again. Plus Orakpos like 27 yrs old

We're sittin' with bullets all ready, slide down and get another 2nd rounder and the jackpot is ours.
Where we sit we get the best player that falls out of the top ten to us. That could be anyone from Beasley, Fowler, Ray, Gregory, Waynes, Shelton, Scherff, Cooper. I do agree we need more picks but I think it would be wise to take a highly rated defensive player where we sit at 13, who knows that could end up being our own JJ Watt. The 31st pick is where we should trade back for depth. Maybe for a 2nd round pick between #31 and #44 where we sit and like a 4th round pick.

I would rather draft an ILB'er. OLB'er is not one of my top priorities. DT, G and CB are a must have more so than Any OLB'er.jmho

With as many picks as we have in the early rounds, we can draft ILB and OLB...

Re: In regards to drafting a OLB/ Pass Rusher

There are a few players I wouldn't mind trading up for.
Vic Beasley
Leonard Williams
Dante Fowler

But I'd prefer to sit and take BPA, which will almost certainly be at a position of need.
