With three picks in the first 44 they have the chance to fill a few of those needs with quality starters. If the Saints were one star player away from the Superbowl it would be different, but they are not. With 9 picks they are set up to make significant improvement with young players. Brees time is limited, the Saints can't afford to blow another draft.
Sure, but a roster is only 51 guys. Are you saying all 9 draft picks will make the roster/PS?

Look if we lose one pick to grab a difference maker and still have 4 picks in the top 78, I'm feeling pretty good.

Re: Argument against this?

I say stay put at 13 and if you wanna trade up I say ok do it with the 31st pick trade a 3rd and 5th to move up to the low 20's but besides that stay where we are for the first 3 rounds


But I also wanna use the first 3 picks on defense we still have enough offense that we will be alright but defense we need all the help we can get not impressed with the guys they have added too that side of the ball at all

Ideally i'd take a pass rusher and a corner in the first round

No, the 3rd through 7th is a real crap shot. However the more picks you have there the more likely you are to hit on one or two. The first 3 picks are where the odds are high and the Saints need to hit on all three. Like I said, they aren't one great player away they are several quality starters away.

But have to say; only losing one of our 2nd round picks to grab a game-changer is tempting.
Saints only have one second rounder. Saints have two third rounders.

Trading up for what???

I can see maybe moving up to 10 and getting the best CB in the draft but stay put and take our chances. We have to let the draft play out.

31 is all but a second, and then we have two 3's. so moving to six with 13 and 44, IMHO, makes sense. We still end up with 3 picks after that...

So basically we give up 1 pick to move 7 spots, not bad and you still end up with 4 picks in first 3

I am not saying we will, I am just saying it is good value if we do

Thank you for correcting me.

I could see our draft play out like this:

Trade a 2nd to get a higher 1st. Then draft at 31

Trade a 4th to get back into the 2nd.

I dont think we NEED to hit on any picks to have a shot at the title this year.

We have a ton of talent with very minimal holes. You could argue this team has more talent than last years, we just need them to play to their potential.

I say trade up with #31 and target Beasley, keep 13 and see who falls.

Still doesn't make sense to me. Rounds 1 & 2 can be a crap shoot too.

Quantity of picks doesn't equate to good drafting.

And maybe the coaches and players do feel like they're 2-3 impact players away from making a difference.

If you want to play with words knock yourself out, but 31st pick is a first round pick and comes with a 5th year option. A second round pick does not. As I said, the Saints have one 2nd round pick. As for moving up, they shouldn't. They should keep all of their picks and take BPA.
