Hopefully the Saints had done their research and wisely passed on this problem child...

Re: 2018 NFL Draft Prospects - Saints

Didn't we pick someone in the supplemental draft once before?

QB Dave Wilson (Illini) is the only outright NFL supplemental draft pick we've ever made - first round, 1981

(Note: Saints were required to give up an equivalent pick in the following draft which resulted in the 1982 first round pick, 3rd overall pick...

In the 1984 USFL Supplemental Draft, Saints got LB Vaughan Johnson (Jacksonville Bulls), RB/KR Mel Gray (LA Express), LB Steve Dearden (Memphis Showboats)...

A supplemental draft pick of note was Steve Walsh, but we didn't select him...

That distinction belongs to Dallas' Jimmy Johnson, who drafted his Miami, FL QB with the second overall pick in the 1989 NFL Supplemental Draft...

(Note: Like New Orleans, Dallas had to surrender their equivalent first round pick in the next draft, 1990, which turned out to be the first overall pick of that draft)

Jimmy Johnson favored his college QB, Walsh, over future (overrated) HOFer Troy Aikman...

But instead of trading for Aikman, Saints Jim Mora insisted on Walsh, sending the Saints 1991 first, second, and third round picks...

Steve Walsh was out as the starter by the next season when Bobby Hebert returned after a contract dispute; Walsh played 8 more game before being released in 1994...

Unfortunately that cautionary tale is forgotten, lost on the current regime at to what happens when a head coach has too much stroke and has a weak, yes-man GM...

How dare you, sir. Decades of therapy shot to crap with this Steve Walsh trash. I couldn't even win with him on Tecmo Bowl...that's how sorry he was.
