Argument against this?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If we package our second round pick with 13 we could move to 6, by still having 31 that effectively still gives us a second round selection with 2 third rounders to come. I don't think this is a bad ...

Argument against this?

If we package our second round pick with 13 we could move to 6, by still having 31 that effectively still gives us a second round selection with 2 third rounders to come. I don't think this is a bad scenario at all.

I do. Most of the talent is in rounds 2- the top of 5. We don't need to move it. Stay put and take BPA or move down and get more picks.

GOT YA, FROM WHAT I have read is there about 10 maybe 12 top guys and then a ton of guys with exactly the same talent level. So to me being outside that spot where the top talent is you trade up, and then you still have 2 3rds, and 31.

You end up with top 6 pick, and still have 3 more in first 3. No??

Re: Argument against this?

I like the Idea.

There are two guys I really want, and I don't think either will be there at 13.

Beasley and Shelton.

If we move up and give up our 2nd rounder for one of those guys ill be happy about it.

Re: Argument against this?

We have too much talent in the first two rounds to trade a pick away.......but if I did it would be for Shelton.

I can legitimately see Loomis doing just that. Weren't they in talks with Washington about trading up? I don't think that would be a bad idea,but I would really like to see them trade our 13 and a player so we can keep our second....that would be nice.

I agree and not even for Shelton. We can find someone else. You said it. There's too much talent in the first two rounds to trade a pick away.

Re: Argument against this?

I've gone back and forth on this.

But have to say; only losing one of our 2nd round picks to grab a game-changer is tempting.

Re: Argument against this?

The Saints have been trading up and losing picks, but it really hasn't worked. Now they find themselves in a position where they need immediate help at several positions. 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.
