we picked a player that probably would have been a priority free agent so some one really wanted the kid and did not want to risk not getting him. they still had some talent on the board that would have filled needs better.

lets see what he has.

And that's really what those sixth/seventh round picks do for you...

Look, Ozzie Newsome was among the first to have went through the NFL's contemporary general manager trainee program...

Ozzie certainly got the inside scoop and favored son status when it comes to getting those invaluable compensatory picks...

Don't know much about darts, but I do know that the guy/gal that has more to throw will usually score more...

I look at our success with undrafted rookie free agents as late round pick success with a little salesmanship...

Don't think guys like PT, Khiry, Lance Moore, Josh Hill aren't used in the free agency market to sell prospects...

Late round picks are the guys you'd want an exclusive look though they've less than ideal chances of making the team...

Murphy's selection was a nice surprise as he has comparable measurables to C J Spiller, can contribute in a role and provide good depth...

Re: The Saints Look to Shrink the Field in 2015

the old would a - could a - should a game.

at least it is in the 7th like you said. plus a buddy really sold this kid to me as the next coming of elvis. the king of that sixth sense in the return game. so worse case i get a 7th round pick to bust his chops about for years if it does not work out. If it does i will never hear the end of it.
