I'm reaching the depths of pre-draft despair where speculating has worn me the hell out! Please let these next 3 weeks fly by!

Need... Need... Need... Does it really matter at #11?

This guy has everything you are looking for in the next NFL GREAT TE.
Should be a future Pro Bowler for years. Total player... just like Jimmy Graham at TE but can block.

Yes, we do need a pass rusher, but taking Taco @ 11 is a huge mistake. You take the best defensive player available. I don't care how many LBs we've signed. None of them are on Foster's level. If he's there, you pick him and hope for the next Patrick Willis and such. Pass rush can still be addressed with our other picks.

Re: Saints Possible Options At Pick No. 11

Nobody knows how good Foster is. Plenty habe said concerns with him reading a playbook and the incident at the combine doesn't fill you with confidence either

The major concern with Foster for NFL teams, beyond the off-field questions, is his ability to absorb a playbook. Foster has struggled in interviews with teams who ask him to draw concepts with X's and O's. "I've been working to get better," Foster says. "Other people learn different, other people have ADHD, or have a learning disorder. X's and O's on boards is hard to do for me. I second-guess myself."
He performs best when watching film and learning on the field, [Nick] Saban says. "If you put on the film he'll be able to tell you chapter and verse because that's how he learned it."
In the story, Saban said he hopes whichever NFL team drafts Foster provides him with a "support network" similar to what he had at Alabama. Said Saban, "I think it's important that he has people around him who will provide him good direction, have good experience and the ability to anticipate what's happening, so you don't get these emotional responses to things that are insignificant."

The story does not minimize the Indianapolis incident, however, in which Foster got into a verbal dispute with a hospital worker, reportedly because he was being asked to wait too long for his NFL medical evaluation (Foster has apologized on multiple occasions, including again in the MMQB story). In fact, MMQB reports, at least one team picking in the top 15 has removed Foster from its draft board.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
