Josh Bullocks - FS - #40

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Not saying this is a good pick but it is possible that the Saints drafted him to move Smith to CB. It would be like drafting a CB which would be accepltable. Not a good pick at all with Burnett ...

Not saying this is a good pick but it is possible that the Saints drafted him to move Smith to CB. It would be like drafting a CB which would be accepltable. Not a good pick at all with Burnett AND Blackstock still on the board, but I think I MIGHT understand what they were thinking?

Well there\'s a Gerry V question for you.

How is it that the Saints arrive at the conclusion that Bullocks was at the top of the board at #40. This pick makes less sense than the Stinchcomb pick.

I\'m not sure how they worked that out, but it doesn\'t make any sense to me. He probably would have lasted into round 3, he wasn\'t a need, he plays a different defensive scheme and he won\'t be starting this year. I don\'t get it.

I\'ll one up you and bet $2500 that this was not the best player available, especially with Shazor still out there.

Piss poor move. It\'s Sullivan all over again, sans the trade.

Gil Brandt\'s Analysis
In 2003, Bullocks set a Big 12 Conference record with 12 interceptions, which is impressive. He will play safety for the Saints. He comes from an athletic family -- his twin brother also plays football but is still in school.
The guys sounds impressive to me. Bellamy is getting up there in age.

Who knows?

Billy, no need to be defensive on this one. I just think that BPA can\'t be the explanation, unless our scouts somehow see something that no other scout on the planet sees - either way it is dumb.

I don\'t like this pick even a little. I can\'t understand it, and BPA just doesn\'t sound sane to me.

Brown, fine. Bullocks over Burnett, Thurman, Crowder, Shazor, and so on, NO! Our FO is full of it with this pick. It was truly dumb. I rarely think that, but in this case, I just see NO other possible explanation than they are truly dumb.

I put this on the other thread, but I doubt it will be seen as much.

Here\'s my take on the FS pick.

1. We will have another year with no hope of the 2nd rounder seeing the field. Bullocks will be sitting next to Stinchcomb and Henderson on the sidelines. At some point we need to be getting starters out of the second round.

2. He is a pretty good zone player. The pity is that both are corners only shored up the pass defense when they started playing man. Why do we need this guy again?

3. He\'s wildly inconsistent. I suppose this is why he was drafted, perfect fit for this team. Sean Taylor this kid is not.

4. What the heck does our FO\'s draft board look like? I\'m having a hard time believing Bullocks wouldn\'t have been there in round 3. A HUGE reach.

5. We continue to ignore key areas of need. (stop the run anyone?) Better players were available at 40. We blew it.

By the way, I just listened to the Haslett post pick interview on Bullocks. The man didn\'t make a lot of sense about the BPA song and dance. He contradicts himself about 3 times as he explains the pick. The best I could tell, they think the kid will replace Bellamy.

JKool --

Not really saying this about you. But, emotion seems to be running very high on this board.

All I said was I thought the Saints went with the BPA approach. What I mean is on thier board. Not on JKool\'s board. Or BMG\'s board. Or B&B\'s board. But on the Saints\' board.

I do NOT like the pick. But ONLY because it wasn\'t a real need.

If the guys is a good player then I can live with it. I\'m not going to write Bullocks off just because he isn\'t a LB.

But, I am NOT happy with this pick. It\'s not the direction I want to go.

Now, let\'s see how many guys can spin what I said into me saying I\'m thrilled with the pick.

Have at it.

It isn\'t just that Bullocks wouldn\'t have been MY pick, it is that I can\'t even understand it. Brown wouldnt\' have been MY pick either, but I can certainly understand it, respect it, and even like it. Not so with this pick.

I\'m going back into my \"Howard for Urlacher mode.\"

Josh Bullocks is a solid pick here. Although I would have loved for us to get Webster instead, they are kind of in the same mold. This team does not create enough turnovers and Bullocks is a ballhawk. What\'s not to like about that? He runs a 4.5 and has good size... Bellamy is also getting up there in age. One thing I am disappointed in is the fact that we are not giving Mitchell another chance to regain his starting spot. I feel as if he\'s very talented. Remember the blow up between him and Haslett on the sidelines last year... I bet it has something to do with it too. Smith and Bullocks looks great to me for the back end of our secondary.

I didn\'t like our first round pick. I would have preferred either Derrick Johnson or Travis Johnson. The fact that we traded a 3rd next year to move up made it worse. Brown could have still been there at 16. Bad move. Randy Mueller needs to come back here because Loomis sucks in my opinion.

Darren Howard is also still here.... :shrug:

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.
