2016 first round pick

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I appreciate it, good sir. I really hope they do find the right guy if they go DT. We've had terrible luck drafting DT's....

Re: 2016 first round pick

I would go with OT in the 1st them a mean mugging type of a NT in the 2nd and in the 3rd a thumper type ILB to help shore up the problem of a gaping hole we always have in the middle, basically stop the run and acquire a pass rush to boot.4th RT, Strief want last forever. I would trade Jordan for high picks and with those I would get a big body WR(Colston type) and a CB. Got to see if this plays out but it could fill major holes.

Re: 2016 first round pick

Draft picks are so hit and miss, depending on one to become a stud at a position of need is a recipe for failure.

The best formula is to address weaknesses in free agency and draft the BPA when its your turn.

Agreed. That's why I say bring back Tyrunn Walker in free agency! We wouldn't have to rely on a rookie to fix our defense.

Yeah they are hit and miss, but what money do we have to upgrade in free agency? To me, when you have glaring holes you need to go after those needs in the draft. If we get the best player available and he's not a player you need, what does he do for the team? In theory, he adds depth, but going back to every draft pick being a crap shoot there's no guarantee the best player available works out.

If they find a way to bring someone in during free agency, then great. If they don't, I would like to see a DT or top O-lineman if at all possible.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: 2016 first round pick

You know what... I think it depends on the coaches. A team like the Packers has no problem relying on the draft and hardly ever signing FA's. Us on the other hand... Well we kinda suck at both approaches.

Re: 2016 first round pick

I can only recall one solid defense Sean has had during his tenure (ball hawks and lots of turnovers), sprinkle in a few years of average defenses and the rest have been hot garbage.

2015 is shaping up to be SP worst defense ever. Something has gotta change. A freak DT would be welcomed.

Re: 2016 first round pick

draft according to need vs Best Player Available

Ahhh the Life long debate rages on

I am BPA first type of guy myself. Never draft to fill a need unless the BPA fills that need.

but that's just me
