I really wanted them to pick Brown, but some "experts" were saying that he was a better fit for a base 4-3 DT than 3-4 NT, but then again, NE is clearly thinking NT with him.

The back problems may have also been a concern for some teams, which made him drop past teams like the Lions.

Phillips at 44 would probably be ideal for the interior D if someone like McKinney isn't there to bolster the LB corps even further.

Still, I have a feeling SP will start addressing some of the offensive skill positions sooner rather than later.

We've needed a young, athletic linebacker FOR YEARS.

And we drafted a guy AND traded for a guy TO protect our best asset - Drew Brees.

Being a deep class of WR, I applaud our coach (who we know salivates over his toys) for NOT taking a WR early.

Man, sometimes you rant and that's okay but this post is just asinine.

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

Was Kenny Stills any higher rated than many of them

Take away Waller who is a sleeper and ver raw the rest all have somevery useful traits. Nobody will know until the a year or two into there career.

DGB could be the best WR in the draft,others have a mixture of hieght/speed other just Colston style match up nightmares

C'mon fellas, there are a dozen 300+lb guys we can grab in later rounds. There aren't other Stephone Anthonys.
The biggest reason I would have preferred we had Taken Denzel Perryman is the Pure Tackling ability that he has watch the tape on him he don't miss tackle anyone and is a veracious tackler you watch his film when he hits you you don't go any further your down and that's it.

Keep Drew upright for 2 more seconds and EVERYONE is open.

Again, keep Drew upright and those don't happen. For another 2-3 years. And what about building a solid O line for the next guy?

Anthony has the same ability AND covers better. You'll warm up to him quickly.

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

I am ok with this pick.

I think the key thing he brings to the table is that he is a LEADER!!!

I can't speak about perryman's game, meaning minus what you said here, but Lofton was the same type of tackler, he just blew in coverage, badly
