Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

if you take threadwell we should trade him back in for a later 1st rdr and a 2nd rounder, giving us more for our money. I totally agree with you on a wideout 1st rounder with our offense. coleman was steppen it up as season went on.

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

You draft the best player available...

You want to fix holes on the roster?!? the defensive line?!? Fix with free agents who have a proven resume in the NFL...

How many recent year's drafts we see hordes of all these defensive prospects who are the next great thing?!?

And nothing. nada. zilch...

It's a deep, deep draft on the defensive line, and all the rookie defensive linemen will need time to develop...

But many of the defensive linemen are overrated in their rankings because other positions are very weak in depth...

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

Now there's no question we are moving the ball up and down the field between the 20's...

But you answered your own question in your cited statistics - we're top 5 in yards, offense, but NOT in scoring...

And certainly not in our win-loss record...

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

This is the reality...

Colston is done. Graham is gone. And Brees no longer has a reliable big target for 3rd downs and in the red zone...

Remember Cooks getting smothered in the end zone by Carolina's big cornerbacks?!?

Get used to seeing us fall short like that and lose even more games...

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

But our success has been due to offense and Brees having multiple, multiple, options for defenses to account...

Remember that sweet throttling we gave the Steelers in Pittsburgh in 2014?!?

We need a big, physical receiver to complement (and replace) in the offense...

And most importantly, Treadwell as a first round pick, will be able to start and have an impact - immediately...

- and that's why I'm banging the drum for Treadwell...

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

WR - we're talking about a position where the player may touch the ball an average of 5-7 times a game. We dont need a "once in a blue moon" WR to be effective becauze of the way Brees spreads the ball around. We need impact players on D and some studs on the OL.

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

I am going to be really ticked off if we go WR in either of the first two rounds unless we fill our needs in FA. We have 10.3 million to spend before fixing Moresteads joke of a contract. Then Brees may free up 5-10 more. So there is a chance we could have between 17-22 million. If we sign 2 guards and a few D-line/LB's I would be fine with it.

Re: What exactly is the logic behind drafting Treadwell?

I don't like Treadwell b/c he is from that college in Oxford, MS...only Archie, Deuce & William Faulkner are the only decent people to come out of that town, in my opinion.

I see the logic of picking him up at 12. But I'm on the "Fix-the-Front-7" train.

Free agency is as much a crap shoot as the draft.

I agree with BPA, but we need line help so hopefully the BPA is a dt
