I like the signing. TE is a huge part of Payton's offense. With Watson leaving, there was definitely a lack of talent at the position that the Saints would have had to address in the draft. I also like the "prove it" contract.
I'd still like the Saints to pick up an OG, I was hoping for Sweezy but there a still a couple good ones available.

You listed 4 players worth a damn, this defense needs playmakers

Just because we take Treadwell in the 1st doesn't mean there isn't elite talent in the later rounds on defense. BPA.

Re: Saints Sign Coby Fleener 5 year deal

Not to take the focus away from the recent Coby signing but ...why we have so many good looking pieces on paper but are so bad? It's because those pieces on defense are at CB, S and Cam Jordan plus a bunch of rookies but we were most certainly dreadfully bad because we were below average at the LB spot. The defense was a broken group, it didn't transition well from one level to the next. It reflected the coaching, filled with uncertainty, change and philosophy. Some of those good pieces were meant for a 34. Some were meant for a 43. Some were meant to play zone and some were meant for man. Because we've flipped flopped schemes for so long and drafted according to that scheme we've become the most versatile defense in the league and it shows on the field because we sucked in every different situation imaginable.

We lack team speed on defense so badly its pathetic.
