Clayton: Howard to Seattle?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; ok... T Jones... you get your first rounder! Draft is a gamble but this year its a bit different. There is a lot more talent out there then the past few years, across the board. I suspect even you see ...

I\'d say you could come up with 6 names in the first 3 rounds you\'d like to have say from the 23rd on down?

No doubt the draft is deep. But wasn\'t the draft a few years back with McNabb deep in QBs? Remember 1999? Tim Couch, Akili smith, Cade McNown, with donovan and Daunte. That was supposed to be the year to get a QB. Deepest class in years. 3 out of 5 busts. All first rounders. In the 2nd round you even had Shaun King. 3rd round Brock Huard. So out of 7 first day players at a \"deep\" position, 5 are doing diddly poo. It\'s still a gamble. But yes, this year\'s draft does APPEAR deeper than most, especially on defense.

Cowboys have two firsts
cha ching..see I think if we really try hard we can get some more picks...just don\'t get two first and trade them up for another defensive lineman...

I never said that draft McNabb draft was deep but most of those QB\'s are still in uniform though... unlike a Ryan Leaf. You are right there was a lot of talk back then about the QB position. This year\'s draft is different... there is lots of talent across the board at every position. I like the OL and D talent the most though, even at WR there are a few thats going to slip and be steals. 3 WR I like whom hardly get any mentioning.

Chris Henry? I like him. . But I dig what you are saying, I really do. But IMO, a team will give us a decent draft pick for Howard. We\'ll just have to wait and see.

I bet the Saints might have beeen trying to wait and let the F.A. pool on DE dwindle down ..then bust out with a guy like Howard...

His value right now is greater than it was 3 weeks ago..just out of lack of competition...

I definitely agree with that. He was already the best DE going in, so with players like Carter and Hayward off the market, he has to be a guy teams are looking hard at.

It really does make sense...If it be Seatlle..cool..right now it\'s do or die for alot of teams to get a solid DE..

And we just happen to have the best one available...

Let the bidding war begin...I bet you within 10 days...we have a deal going on...and a pretty big one at that.

Oh man if we were to acquire another first(Dallas), goodness we\'d be able to move up. DJ here we come! Wishful thinking, I\'ll settle for a 2nd rounder though :P

even for dj-i don\'t want to trade multiple picks to move up..i\'d rather get scores of players that are good than one who is maybe great-maybe not...
