Is there anyone worth moving up for?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; It would be very like Payton and Loomis to impulsively move up to grab someone that no one (or few) had ever heard of. This team has a bit of a penchant for shiny objects and short attention spans on ...

I still have reservations on Beasley due to his size. It ine thing bulking up for the combine but can he keep tgat additional weight and probably a touch more on while playing every week?. He has plenty of talent but im not sure i would want to put an additional 2nd rounder on the table for him.

Freak like ability coming off the edge.

considering their offense, they will stick suck on defense, and have done so against the run for a while now. But they're a wierd team they tend to stop one dimensional offenses.

Then we get Ray. He's the one I like anyway.

I'm telling you we'll likely move up to grab a guy we have a higher grade on who's fallen into rounds 2 or 3.

For example, if Eli Harold makes it to #20-25, we should absolutely move picks to grab him before someone else does.
I just contradicted the hell outta myself there...

Do you jokers even read my posts??

But his speed and quickness in open space make him a perfect OLB

Re: Is there anyone worth moving up for?

We spent a first round pick on a 3-4 defensive end out of Cal (Jordan)...

We drafted another big defensive tackle/end hybrid (Hicks), then...

We've traded two round four picks to select a 3-4 nose tackle (Jenkins) in the third round...

WTF don't we just stay the course and finish moving to the 3-4 base package?!?

We can finally get the right linebackers which we are well positioned to attain?!?

Shane Ray, Randy Gregory, Bud Dupree are one dimensional 4-3 defensive ends...

Beasley's size? Please! He's the perfect draft candidate for a 3-4 defensive end...

You protect him with those big defensive ends you already have under contract...

And then you let his size and speed blow up the competition...

For those padawans under forty, probably have no concept of how beautiful a sight that a 3-4 with good personnel can be...

Especially in black and gold...

I'd move up for her. Draft her as 1/2 time show at my house.
Hell... we might not even watch the 1st half.
