Just say NO to a Wr in the first round ...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I keep reading on numerous fan boards about how some fans want the Saints to draft a wr at 13 or move up for one. I strongly disagree with the idea. This draft may not have guys like Amari Cooper ...

Just say NO to a Wr in the first round ...

I keep reading on numerous fan boards about how some fans want the Saints to draft a wr at 13 or move up for one. I strongly disagree with the idea. This draft may not have guys like Amari Cooper or Kevin White in later rounds but, I do feel the class has value in later rounds for players to come in & contribute right away. Tyler Lockette, Tre McBride are a couple of examples of this.
Wanna replace Graham ? I'd love to see the Saints draft Minnesota te Maxx Williams at 31 if he's there or @ 44 (which he probably would be gone already).
Please - enough about getting a wr in the first round !!! Even Sean Payton said this is a deep draft for wrs !!!

Re: Just say NO to a Wr in the first round ...

Dont agree completely with that
And i really dont want Lockette. He is 5'9 and we allready have Cooks and Saunders for small speedy guys. After 4/5 WR most are around 5'10/11,the rest lack either size or speed.
Look at the DB in the South. The Falcons smallest CB is 5'10,Panthers dont have a CB under 6' and the Bucs smallest is Verner at 5'10. We really could do with a number 1 type.
Its not our main priority but if one falls into our lap i wouldn't complain

Re: Just say NO to a Wr in the first round ...

my problem is that very few wideouts, first round selection or not, come in and dominate year 1. there are exceptions, but very few

I would really like to see us add a top guard, either Collins or scherff and a really athletic lb

I'm in with spkb25 - I'd like to see the Saints get a top guard at 13 or an athletic OLB. At 31 ? BPA ...

Good point. I was thinking the same thing. We want to win now so what position offers immediate impact from rooks? Not many that I recall.

Outside of Marquise Lee and Lattimore every one of them had a really good season and a fair few started coming on stronger and stronger as the year went on.

Saying that WR dont come in and perform straight away is wrong imo. They may not be top 5 receivers in the league but we see more and more that college players are ready to go. For me TE may struggle as they have more to do than WR but you give a WR some simple routes and they get you yards.
st thomas, Sarik and Foot Stomper like this.

"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!
