Re: David Onyemata Highlights

I was confused about this pick, thought we would get a guard since we are so thin in that area. I was pissed mainly cause I did all my homework on some of these players, especially Sean Davis and when we had opportunities to get the guy I wanted and we didn't get them. I reserved to hold my opinion til I researched the picks. My research on this David, I must say I am impressed. I like all of our picks just skeptical on how they going to handle the position of need like offensive guard


The 23-year-old pressed 33 reps on the bench press and ran a 5.06 40-yard dash, numbers his head coach Brian Dobie said afterwards were in line with the best of the NFL Combine.

Random fact: Green Bay called Onyemata's agent to say they were taking him in a few picks. Saints traded up to snag him instead.


Ok let me get this straight

The saints trade back into the draft ten spots higher than the packers to fulfill their man crush. Alright gotta find a partner I get it

In the process they gave up two fifths which is about a third round pick in value for this kid. OUCH for molding clay?

Wonderment? Why are the saints are throwing around picks like they are throwing around cash in FA.

I like the kid for a developmental player. He was on my short list of play clay options. So the player himself is not my issue. The fact you spent so much to get him is my issue. There were other players to mold still on the board so this must be some serious lust here.

Conclusion? They would not be stuck in this situation if their other man crush was not obtained in round 2. This is a chain reaction from the Bell trade that will always cloud his value for me.

All of this for a player I was high on already
