Draft Needs

with some scathing comments-

Saints

LB- Once again, the Saints are largely set on offense and need a ton of work on defense. Since their rush defense was especially poor, look for them to draft a run-stopping linebacker.

DT- Expecting Jonathan Sullivan to suddenly “get it� would be like expecting owner Tom Benson to become a competent dancer. Or a competent owner.

CB- Fakhir Brown played well in ’04, but the Saints could use a standout opposite Mike McKenzie.

QB- Not a huge need, but isn’t it time the Saints start considering a replacement for A.B? A young challenger to groom would make and provide most Saints fans a new favorite player.

Draft Needs

I think a CB to go with McKenzie would be a luxury more than a necessity. I\'m certainly not against that.

Also, I really think that when you look at our roster, Bellamy\'s age and declining range, SS is more of a need than CB. At Corner we have a bunch of young, speedy, and serviceable guys.

Otherwise, I agree.

You nailed it. SS is a glaring need, more so than CB.

Pair a playmaker (ala Sammy Knight style) with Dwight Smith, MM, and Fakir, and I think you\'ll see a vastly improved secondary. I think you\'ll see turnovers. Remember when we used to get those?

But keep Bellamy in there, well, things won\'t be so good.
