Players I wanted to draft

This year
Denzel Perryman or Shane Ray for OLB instead of Anthony
Trey Waynes or Collins instead of Peat

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.

Well Collins was able to be drafted at anytime. So I think maybe Parker I wanted not sure.

So after 3 games he was a wasted pick? Wow.

Lol, wasted pick? Have you seen Strief play this year? The Tackle positions are set for the next 10 years.

Players you wanted to draft?

Since when do you own an NFL team?

Re: Players I wanted to draft

OLB Dupree instead of Peat.
Keep Anthony.
TE Max Williams over Kikaha.
DE Anderson over Grayson.
OT Clemmings over Williams.
OLB Emanuel over Tull.
Keep Davison.
Keep Swann.
Keep Murphy.

5 Players contributing from the draft is good. 5 more UDFA's made the team. 12 rookies (counting Breaux) made the team. Tull and Williams can have impact next year if healthy. It's tough so far this year but the young guys have potential. With the possibility of picking high next year, the Saints will have the opportunity to get some impact they need.

Re: Players I wanted to draft

only 1 draft choice I would've veto, trading Stills for Ellerbe and P.J. Williams. I would've preferred them to trade down with Miami and pick P.J.Williams but with what I know now(emergence of Swann) I preferred they used that 3rd rd pick on Sammie Coates

Re: Players I wanted to draft

1 CB Marcus Peters

Let this be a lesson to all of us.
