Not worth the consideration or it's to early to be thinking on this level.

lol complete nonsense. If you were going to go after Mariota there would've been no reason to make some of the moves we've made. You would've kept graham and stills and just traded brees if you were planning to go after Mariota. To try to move up to get him now at no 2 would be a waste.

If we were getting winston............I "might" entertain this but mariota is simply not that good. I think bryce petty will be better in the long run.

Petty will be a better NFL QB. Although I may have to delete this post in a few years.

Not us but I could see the Bucs having a change of heart and get him. Someone in their leadership (if they have any) has to see Winston fits the perfect mold on what it takes to be a disaster in the NFL. He makes Cam Newton look like an angel.

I don't know why I'm bothering to respond to this, but whatever... Drafting Mariota would be THE worst draft pick in Saints history.

Do we need a QB of the future soon? Yes. But you don't draft a guy that high to sit unless they were actually planning on trading Drew, which I don't believe for a second. It would be bad enough if we had a top 5 pick but considering we'd have to trade lord only knows how much to move up that high... It's not worth it. And we're not talking about a Peyton Manning type of prospect. We're talking about a highly developmental project.

And just on my own observations over the years, I've watched many a "great" QB go through Oregon and do absolutely nothing in the pros. I believe you'd have to go back to Dan Fouts to find the last successful QB in the NFL from that school, and needless to say that was a completely different era. There is this perception that Mariota is different because he won a little more, but I don't see a difference.

Lastly, because it is known that he ran a simple, albeit uptempo offense in college, that makes him just about the worst candidate for our offense. We don't run a gimmick offense. I'm not high at all on Bryce Petty, who seemed to have an awful lot of games were he barely completed 50 percent of passes and threw about 60 times a game, but he'd still be a better fit later in the draft if we are going to draft a QB at all.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

If we drafted Mariota it would easily guarantee us another 7 or below win season

So many other holes to fill and while QB is needed in the future, it's not immediate when we have so many other needs to fill.
