#1 Draft Pick

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Is it too early yet? I feel a little guilty even posting this? Honestly besides more beef up front, I don't even know where to go first based on today's and last week's performance....

Re: #1 Draft Pick

Saints will probably need to go QB in round 1.

Re: #1 Draft Pick

Trade Ingram, he's got value. We have Edmunds, Kamara, and always find decent backs when we need them maybe Victor if he's still around. It's not like Payton runs the ball anyway so it won't hurt without him.
See if you can get a couple more players worth value to trade. Stockpile draft picks via trading late rounds and players.
Find our next QB. Do what it takes to get someone opposite Jordon who can play every snap in FA.
Boot Payton or tie his hands so Carmichael can call plays.
I don't care about "getting there maybe next.year".
Get fresh blood at QB. Drews old and it's showing.

Re: #1 Draft Pick

For the Ingram idea: Great value in his prime with plenty of game left. Go all Herschel Walker with it. If we're gonna blow this up, get picks to add the Big Uglies.

How do you reboot a dumpster fire? Talent in the trenches. Doesn't always work, but there's a better chance for long term success with this model.

CAVEAT: No, I certainly haven't given up on 2017. I just like working the hypotheticals in my sick tiny mind.

Re: #1 Draft Pick

Yeah its to early. I don't see us with the 1st pick I see us at 4th or 5th thought.

Some teams have had a jump start on us for tanking the season to get that pick. Jets for one.

We need to do what we need to to draft BAKER MANSFIELD.
