New Orleans Saints draft analysis: The case for moving out of the 13th pick

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The more I think, the more this year seems like 2006. Over the past two seasons we've cleaned house (and may not be done). IMO, we keep as many of the picks that aren't involved in at least one trade. ...

Trading back out of 13 to the early to mid 20's makes alot of sense,if Sheldon or Sheriff are there those have to be taken, with Sheriff being taken over Sheldon only because it fortifies our O-line. Our D is a work in progress but progressing.

Not a fan of Dupree at all. Disappeared at times last season. LSU put up right at 50 against Kentucky last year and lets face it, LSU did not have a overwhelming offense.

Re: New Orleans Saints draft analysis: The case for moving out of the 13th pick

If the solid players are off the board and the word upside is involved with any of the picks i say trade out and and again spread out this bonanza of picks into 2016.

move down in one and pick up a first in 2016 or a second, is a solid move.
move out of 31 and pick up a 1st in 2016 is a solid move.

do both and i would say the saints have a game plan in 2016.

1 first, 2 seconds and 2 thirds would be sweet also. and sleeping a night with 2 1st and a 2 seconds in 2016 would be ideal in my book.

must at least get that second 1st in 2016 to make it all worth while.

One draft is not going to fill all the holes. The holes we can fill in this draft based on needs is here in the draft and can be addressed from round 2 on.

I like the top 10 or so in this this draft. i just see a hug drop of from there. at 13 i think we will need some divine intervention to get one of the top players to drop in our lapse. i swear it is like the entire second round in a typical draft is in the last half of the first this year. there is just a void from say 12 to say 24 talent wise. so close yet so far away.

to get an honest shot at a player we could use, we need to start look at chicago on down for trading partners. I for one say we need to many players depth wise to waste the picks moving up without trading a players also.

I agree with Seattle there are not enough true first round talents in this years draft. I would have made the Jimmy trade also based on that.

But the quality of players from round 1 on is very solid.

The key word to me here is solid. By building a solid foundation in this draft you could roll the dice on a player(sexy pick, I hate those words) next season or keep drafting solid picks. I'm all about a solid built teams, more consistancy and hard as he!! to beat. Play-action with the O and in the low to mid teens on the D I think will get us back to where we need to get back to, winning.

I would never ever trade up at 13 unless its for a fortified starter on either side of the ball, besides kickers or russel errsedlavin . still embarrassed with that foolish pick.

Just my own preference.

Is Beasley THAT much of a difference maker or a shiny college player? I'm not sure.
id rather get to 6 or 7 and select scherff. he wont make it past 10

2013 Sheldon Richardson Jets
2012 Michael Floyd Cardinals
2011 Nick Fairley Lions
2010 Brandon Graham Eagles
2009 Brian Orakpo Redskins
2008 Jonathan Stewart Panthers
2007 Adam Carriker Rams
2006 Kamerion Wimbley Browns

now tell me again why the Saints should trade out of pick #13? I only see 4/5 players on that list that at the time they were drafted wouldn't of helped the Saints if they had the chance to draft them in the year they were selected

no doubt and we ended up with some really good players too, but I think every draft is different, and I am only saying we should move up if there is a specific player we are looking at that we think is game changer this year. Plus, because we have the extra 3rd and extra first this year, to me, makes it more palatable. That said, if we don't have anyone we covet then we should sit still or trade down.
