Sean Payton: We need to draft defenders who play right away

The Saints own a pair of first-round picks after trading tight end Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks and they have five picks overall in the first three rounds, which puts them in position to add some talent to the roster after a 7-9 season.

During an interview with WWL on Wednesday, coach Sean Payton gave some hints about what kind of talent the team was hoping to acquire. It probably comes as no surprise to anyone who watched the Saints in 2014 that Payton thinks the team needs immediate help on the defensive side of the ball.

“It’s going to be important for us defensively in this draft to bring in some guys that we feel like can help us play right away,” Payton said, via the New Orleans Times-Picayune. “And I think if you’re looking closely to when we’ve been real good, there’s been that element defensively, there’s been that element in the running game.”

Defenders. Offensive players. A kicker. All COULD play right away.

Either this is a smoke screen by Payton or we plan to draft Collins, Scherff, Shelton or Beasley (trade up scenario) right away.

I'm my opinion, these are Pro ready players.

Well,with Seans comment, Im assuming we're going offense in the first...or unless he wants other teams to think that and we go defense....or unless he knows other teams will know his mind games and assume we go defense,but in actuality we go offense. Who knows?
