All we have left is a 5th and a 7th. So I hope we got what we needed. Or have a good eye on some future undrafted FAs. Cause we don't have squat left to deal. Lol. Hey the Saints are always full of surprises.

Trend Setters....

IMO no. He was not the player I would have chased but more importantly with the need of talent across the board I would have not traded that 3 much less the fourth also. Not for anyone on the board with that pick. So Bell is not alone.

Tackles like Jane and hits like her younger sister. So run support is an area my expectations are low. After the past few years tackling in the secondary is higher on my wish list than it is for the saints. that is a reason i never talked about him. Till he gets an attitude in run support an tackling in general, he will be a YAC machine for other teams.

With that said if he plays CB more than safety it could be a acceptable move. The kid has great ball skills despite his size, that would also hide the lack aggression in tackle a good bit.

If it at FS he will need a great all around SS to free him up. look at him as Byrd II.

it is a roil of the dice. Mama needs a hard 5 in my book
