Re: Underwhelmed

This running back they just took kind of makes it look like they didn't give a crap there. Just wanted to pick and go home. Not that there's much name recognition left, but that just didn't make much sense. I'll wait to hear the riveting story behind that selection.

Re: Underwhelmed

I am happy with the picks for the most part. Don't know a thing about the 4th round guy ya'll are arguing about. I would like to say though..why tf do the Saints hate LSU players? I know it was a down year for the Tigers but c'mon. Alexander was originally suppose to be a 3rd rounder and he went in the 7th. I don't get how we have one of the top football colleges in the country and we never draft anyone from it.

Re: Underwhelmed

lets see we got 5 players and started out with 6 picks. add io it we traded away 2 picks in 2017.

5 players with 8 picks and the final conclusion I can reach is simple.

we got quicker not faster and not any bigger really or nastier.

i guess we will glide around other teams and charm them to death

I would have been ok with it if it weren't for the fact that our guards are pretty bad.

And we all saw the evidence of that, so I don't think I'm imagining that problem.
First off there's PLENTY off first round players that don't have all 32 come and physically watch, but could be of interest later and could communicate email phone that's just 17 that showed no telling how many actually reached out

Cajun,

You know that isn't true. Cmon man, there were some good picks made. This isn't Reprish and company in the draft room selecting duds .
