Looking back why didn't we get Parker? Miami got him and they're not even using him.

2014
Dee Ford-was he overlooked because of his comments about Clowney? Well, I'm a gamecock fan and he was right!!! He would have been great for us. Look what he's doing in KC.
Kelvin Benjamin-The other alternative to Ford. I liked him better than Cooks because of his size. Cooks was second to him based on where we were picking.

Our scouts have picked the most unpredictable players instead of just taking the big name and hoping it sticks. I don't know of many first round picks outside of QB that have been failures in a while other than the underwhelming 2013 draft. Almost all of them from last year have contributed.

I felt the Anthony pick was a reaction to Beasley and even Hau'oli pick was a reaction to Shaq. Maybe we should have taken Shaq over Peat?

I mean our draft wasn't bad but Peat was a wasted pick and I don't think what we drafted are game changers.
Before this past eek, they said Anthony was leading us in tackles... is anyone really disappointed in Anthony? Looking at Strief's play I can see exactly why we drafted peat, I think he will be absolutely fine

Anthony still has a ways to go before he's in the Vilma class, and probably won't even be in the Curtis Lofton class until he has several more games under his belt.

But its obvious he has talent and will most likely progress toward one of the better MLB's in the league.

We have been in all three games with lot's of players hurt and not playing. This is giving some of these players playing time and that's a plus. Brandin Cooks is fine he will do well. let me explain something. 1 our QB's have had little to no time to throw deep. 2. We have three young guys out there it will get better. Look at our starters on offense and defense, you will see a lot of young bodies out there. We will be fine. Right now we need to put together a game a full game play 60 mins of good football. That goes for players and coaches. Don't give up on our Saint's I know most of you are spoiled. Be patient... WHO DAT!!!!!
It isn't about giving up on the saints it's about immediate impact. I didn't knock the draft, but Parker would be a big help right now FOR COOKS. Cooks cannot beat big corners and as long as Payton has him as a wideout, that will be the case. Waynes would be a big help to our secondary with Lewis hurt. Perryman would be a help to our dline. With those guys, we might actually have a win. No wait we would have all of the wins.

Re: Players I wanted to draft

Criticism of Cooks selection is fair, hell, I made the following points when to moved up to take Cooks...

We've had too many other needs to combine to high picks into one player...

He's a great player with a great motor, but he's small and we needed an "x" receiver who's minimum 6' 2" to compete with the now more physical cornerbacks (i.e. Seattle, Carolina)...

But we've also got other needs and you can't pass on other players at other positions just because we didn't get WR right - think Detroit tried that a few years ago and that GM set 'em back years and passed on some great players...

Cooks is going to be a dynamic weapon, but we had more basic needs that should have taken priority and Jeff Ireland came in and stabilized us so that we had better draft management...

That this year's draft class will go down as one of our best in franchise history is directly attributable to Ireland's presence (per Coach Payton's public statments) that Ireland will keep things calm and make sure we are better in our draft management...

There's a wide receiver on the block right now and he would be a BIG help to us.
