Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

I too will be in the minority here ...

Saints need to start building a team like Denver & keep grabbing talent in the 1st for defense. I think this year we are in a great position now to pick BPA on DEFENSE for the next few seasons & really turn this young group around with more talent. Our team needs more talent and depth on the defensive side of the ball.

I'd add a WR via FA and if you can find a Kenny Stills type in the 4th or 5th, go for it.

If the likes of big boy Billings, Buckner A Robinson, or Rankins (all considered impact type talent) are still on the board, I could see the Saints selecting one of these guys rather than a WR @ #12.

Side note : I think Josh Doctson will be a better Pro prospect than Treadwell. Don't get me wrong, Tread is a talented player however I don't see the Julio Jones type hype to justify as our first pick next month.

Here is a quick read on the draft. It's harder than ever to make the right pick in the NFL Draft - SBNation.com

Danno, I get the drafting for the futrue but who knows about this team in 5 years RIGHT NOW we have Brees and he's getting to that point where the defense needs to start pulling its weight and then some because that game he had against the Giants last season won't be happening on a regular basis anymore
Again, I'd prefer defense, but I wouldn't cry about Treadwell at 12.

SFIAH simply asked the logic behind making him the pick at 12.

My personal top 10 are all defensive players.

if Saints go WR in this draft, I want Corey Coleman from Baylor but I doubt he's there in the 2nd round. Just looking but most WRs 6'2" or taller have a FA grade on them. Why?

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

I understand the Treadwell love an all. Plus I see the need, especially with colston gone and our two best WR under 6'. I think the saints would be better off with a tall WR that can take the top off a defense freeing up Cook a bit more. I never shied away from a solid possession WR that has just good speed either.

He meets all the requirements it would appear to be in this offense. football IQ appears not to be the issue. But the pick makes me a bit apprehensive for some reason. Defense is such a huge area of need.

He is on a short list for sure but there are others that fill a need and appear to be just as safe of a pick?

This can't be emphasized enough.

Although, a high 1st rounder should in most cases be able to contribute immediately.

Oh, and we better address our holes on both sides of the ball with a decent free agent haul.

I wouldn't complain if we he was there at 12 and we landed him, however I think D line is a massive massive need at this point.

We have neglected interior D line and it shows, we get absolutely man handled by average Offensive Lines in the run game.

Even if we use all of our draft picks on D,how is that gonna guarantee an improved D? I think we should go FA for defense.

My dream draft would be 1st 3 picks on front 7, then I really don't care what happens after that. But we could come out of this draft with 2 DL and 2 LBs.

I'm really rethinking Jenkins. Not disruptive enough for his position. Thats the one spot on the 4 line that needs a spark plug. I would love foe Sunseri to beat out Vaccarro. Thats another spot that has to be addressed SS. And Anthony hasn't looked all that good in coverage, he got his rookie pass he needs to step up this season. Also I'm curious how Allen is going to use Kiki? Or is he going to waste his talent?
