Neither will happen and we'll draft a player that you don't like... Same as every year.

Same here buddy... I feel your pain. I spend months obsessing over the draft and I'm AWLAYS left disappointed. But I'm always right back at it the next year!

Foster seems like a real possibility. Keep seeing mocks with Cincy taking a RB. Makes sense considering what they have. I'm actually starting to warm up to Barnett. Would be happy with either at 11.

Marvin Lewis is a defensive guy...

And Cincy lost two good offensive linemen...

I'm thinking Cincy addresses their line(s) first...

there is not a top ten talent on the OL this year. unless they pull a Peat on their fans.

Ryan Ramczyk and Cam Robinson are both RT and carry other issues. Garret Bolles is the best developmental prospect at LT or RT but not top 20 talent really. OG? It is just a terrible year on the OL a top the draft.

were are suckers for the saints.

Derek Barnett gets a lot love here. He is a sack nut sure but after three years of starting he has a lot of work to do against the run. Set an edge? Nah wants the glory stats. That worries me big time. He needs great SLB play backing him up.

I would trade down in heart beat and take an additional pick and settle for Taco Charlton. With just a year of starting time he is is one of the best rush defender in the draft. His pass rush is improving and shows a solid upside to only get better. He is a bigger version of Jordan. He beats up lineman on the way to the QB clogging up lanes and frees up LB.

Re: Saints Possible Options At Pick No. 11

Read a story from Mike Mayock last month and he compares Reuben Foster to All Pro Luke Kuechly. I'm paraphrasing here but basically said RF is faster than Luke, has superior instincts, better sideline to sideline mobility & is the best LB prospect he has seen since Kuechly came out of BC.

If RF is there at #11, I don't see how he gets past us. We could be looking at the next Ray Lewis or Patrick Willis.

The Draft is only 2 weeks away ... can't wait to see how this unfolds.

Apparently we have our eye on Zach Cunningham as well...
