For the love of God man!!! baronm are you serious? What is your deal with Barrett Ruud? You really want us to use the #16 pick on Ruud? Come on man, get real! I\'m starting to wonder if your last name IS Ruud. Are you actually him trying to get Saints fans to demand to the FO that we pick you? No matter what the thread topic is, if I see a post by baronm it\'s going to have the name Ruud in it. It could be a topic about who the best DBs in the draft are and baronm will come in and be like \"Barrett Ruud doesn\'t play DB but he could if we moved him, I say draft him, put him at CB opposite Mike and let\'s play football\". You crack me up with your infatuation with Barrett Ruud!!!

1. we don\'t need a db we need a lb
2. dj will not be there, cowder and burnett are both coming off severe injuries, and thurman is a head case-so any more first round worthy linebackers?

I like blaykenstock..but he\'ll be there in the second, merriman has off the feild issues, i\'ve read and may not make the adjustment from DE, Ware is one of my favorit players in the draft..but agains-can he play lb? can he play against decent competion?


We NEED Linebackers and watson projects to a good outside linebacker and ruud is a pretty good mlb..smart, tough, can LEAD--yes 16 is high, but he will be gone before the 40 and possibly sooner since he had a good combine and workouts.

like I said..we NEED linebackers...and I can\'t think of a better one that will be there when we pick...and I\'m very, very scared of thomas davis and I think the DT from florida state will be a bust the size of sully...

3. the players I want in the draft are alex smith and Derrick johsnon...best linebacker and a qb to get rid of brooks..but I\'ve gotta be realistic...haz won\'t get rid of the tumor and DJ won\'t be there when we pick unless he gets caught with a sheep between now and the draft..and that might even elevate his prospects in this day and age.

Ruud can be had in the 2nd. Taking him in the 1st would be a bigger reach than Sullivan was two years ago.

jammal brown ot

as far as ruud, he ceratinly is more possible at #40 than #16. i surveyed six big boards for the rankings of ILBs and it was this- (rankings next to name)

Crowder- 1 1 1 1 1 1
Thurman- 2 3 2 2 2 3
Mitchell- 3 2 4 3 4 4
Ruud- 5 7 3 4 6 2
McCune- 6 8 5 5 3 5
Morrison- 4 9 7 6 5 6

i don\'t think any of them are worth #16 and i think an olb would be better as well. take the best available at #40 or trade #16 down if you want the better of those.

i predict there will be a run on linebackers in the first round.
v
burnett (another player who if he falls I hope we can snag in the second--helluva football player-biggest problem is his mouth and his kneee), blackstock ( I like him, but he\'s raw) and ruud (right now the most complete LBwtho doesn\'t have off the fild problems and is smart) are the three prime time linebackers I want..

after that there are some projects-mccune, ware, etc but those three first mentioned will all be gone in the first round unless something weird happens. and I think a smart, tough, good character mlb is what we need..esp. after he showed in the combine that he is a pretty decent athlete..combine him with colby and watson and your linebacking core is really upgraded over allen, watson, and rogers.

my prediction is completely the opposite baron. discounting the 3-4 merriman tweener types i do not think there will be a pure LB picked after DJ until #20 at the earliest. there could be as few as 3 LBs in the first round picked total. 5 or more would be a surprise to me. david pollack might end up being a great inside 3-4 backer.
