NFL Redraft 2017

The link is to a piece of how the 2017 draft might have gone down with 20/20 hindsight. If teams had known in advance how the players performed their rookie year before the 1st round draft picks were made, 4 current Saints would have gone in the first round, including 2 in the top 5. That, my friends, is crazy scouting...or sheer luck.

It probably isn't possible to hit the jackpot two years running, but we can wish.

I think they are fascinating 3-6 years out not just one year out - However; interesting tell to have 4 picks that equate going in the first round.

Re: NFL Redraft 2017

Take out the fantasy element and it reads: we took 4 of the top 25 first year players, but had only 1 top 25 pick
Good enough for me
