This is why I think we should stay put at 13 and 31.

We need as many young, talented, driven players as possible. With the addition of Jeff Ireland and his scout team, I'm sure we will do the right thing on Thursday night.

Re: Saints Move into Top 5 via Trade with AFC Team

I didn't read the whole thing, but I'll just say what I think about the first part of it. I don't see a trade of Cam Jordan happening. He's been very inconsistent thus far, but you still have to hope that he figures it out, because if he doesn't and you get rid of him then essentially you're trying to replace him in the draft instead of adding someone to go with him. Because we already know that he IS capable, even if he is lacking consistency, it doesn't make much sense to trade him unless we got a proven player back... There's no such player in the draft.

from the other teams' perspective, if Jordan wants a crap load of money (which he'll have a difficult time getting if he doesn't establish himself better) then why give away draft picks for the guy AND have to turn around and pay him a ton of money. This isn't baseball, you need to have more long term control of a player if you're going to pay a high price.

I'd rather trade Galette if it's all about freeing cap space down the road. But again, who wants to trade for these guys? I suppose anything is possible, but it would be pretty dumb on the part of any team that fell for a deal like that. Sometimes it happens, though.

Re: Saints Move into Top 5 via Trade with AFC Team

solid work and food for thought.

@13 for sale in my book for any 1at in 2016. doping up the draft board has screwed us big time/ wrong draft to have 2 1st in.

we are not out of the reach for the best bets in the first round. Seattle looks to have been the smart one in the Jimmy trade after all

selling it to move down is more likely.

i am liking a package deal so philly can move up but a future #1 is more important than ever not veteran players. hell a pick in 2017 would work for me. we can trade that on draft day in 2017. bail out 1 all together. keep pick 31. even then that is up for sale for a better pick in round 2 than 44;

this draft blows for first round talent. some of the better Jr did come out.

Re: Saints Move into Top 5 via Trade with AFC Team

I believe Byron jones is the best cornerback coming out in this year draft and I think we can get him at the 31 pick. It's a gamble but with Brandon Browner, Keenan Lewis starters and Brian Dixon, Delvin Breaux at back up, then Stanley Jean Baptiste might be ready to contribute this year I'll hope they take the risk.

Its the slot CB i want sorted.
Wouldn't mind taking Jones but Golson in the mid rounds is the guy i want for the slot.

Re: Saints Move into Top 5 via Trade with AFC Team

Byron Jones i have one question for you. how does going from a 6/7 prospect at the end of the year to a 1/2 ranking really makes sense? granted i thought he was more of a round 3/4 type myself at season end not the 6/7. I would not be surprised to see him on the board at 44. kinda of amazed if we see him by 75. 44 might be the realistic spot for him.

In my book he is in the top 5 of over hyped player in the draft.

13 BPA all the way needs are not in play with that pick.

I still say bail and salvage what you can for 2016

Golston is the only CB in this draft I would take because he can be had in the 3rd. Safer pick in my book.

I hate these threads with titles that act like something has already happened when it clearly hasn't and probably won't.
