Re: Fournette and Saints rendevous

This is just a cover IMO. I doubt he'll make it to #11, and given the needs defensively, it'd be a stretch to move up to get him.

Pretty silly drafting a RB before 10 IMO. Odds of it working out are horrible, just the worse position to gamble on that high. I could see him dropping for sure.

IF he were there at #11 and you were calling the shots; what would you do?

I personally would still pass...

I might do it at 11 if defenders are picked through pretty good. It would still be stupid but sometimes you have to roll the dice if somebody drops a few notches. The contracts also get much more favorable at 11 to teams.

I would wait for a later round and grab Mixon. I do like the thought of a bell cow though but at 11, no.

Why trade back if you are not getting decent value. Or if the players you like are not there. If he is the best option then take him
