After being suffocated by Goodell in 2012, the 2013 class is still in tact, or on the roster. I think 2014 was a disaster.

Re: Re-Grading the New Orleans Saints 2013 Draft Class

B

1) We needed a better pick in the 1st than Vaccaro. Then again, I wanted OLB Jarvis Jones (who may still turn out worth it but hasn't yet). And at least V isn't a bust. Mostly remembering hating losing out on DT Star L'...preview of Deja Vu all over again when we lost out on DT Shelton the following year.

3) Loved the Armstead pick then and just as much now. Then loved we selected a big NT (finally) after all these years of runs up the middle. Alas, Jenkins wasn't the best one to fill the slot.

6) could not figure out why we took a flier on Rufus. What I really hoped for was to double up on the DT/NT we clearly needed then and now. I wanted Geathers in the 6th or 7th but he went UDFA to the Chargers (and made their team which surely shows he deserved a 6th or 7th).

This year, I like we did double up on DTs with Rankins and Oynemata. So thankful for the shots that I'll give a pass on the targets.

I thought Geathers plays for Cinncy.

Stills got traded to Miami because his attitude rubbed the leaders in the locker room the wrong way

How drunk were the 2 people that gave the draft a D and F?

It confounds me how dumb someone has to be to give a draft an F when after three years 4 of the 5 picks are NFL starters. Every team would kill for that success rate.

Armstead may be an All-Pro (not just Pro-Bowl) this year
Vaccaro may flirt with a probowl if he continues to improve.
JJenkins may be the most under-rated player on our entire defense.
KStills looks to be a starter again next year.
Rufus was a late round gamble that didn't pan out. Shocker? Hardly

How anyone could rate that draft anything lower than a B indicates they have absolutely no freaking idea about the NFL or the NFL Draft.

Not shocking however, given the comments by our so called draft gurus about this current draft.
