We have half the picks that we used in the first three rounds last year and we pick later in the round as well. There will be less talent on the board but talent is still available if you do your homework. Kamara is a prime example.

We also do not have as many holes to fill ... thanks to the last two drafts and the free agent acquisitions.

Exactly. Because of those few holes to fill, the chances are greater this year that we may do something really unusual...

We could actually move back to select a need at a more apropros spot in the draft and build depth for a title run...

Considering there are only about 20 first round prospects this year, there’s no better time to trade out of the first. Cleveland has 3 second round picks (#33, 35 and 64)... I’d hope like hell they’re eyeing a LT or something to trade back into the first round for.

CLE receives pick #27
NO receives picks #33 and 64

Something like that could be ideal.

I'd send them a LT with a good for us exit re-worked contract and the 27, for the rights to Joe Thomas and all three of those second rounders...

That is a pipe dream. That would be like hitting the lottery twice in consecutive weeks.

Let's just be happy that we hit the lottery once last year. If we can get one productive starter out of this draft, it'll likely be a win.

Marshon Lattimore single- handily upgraded our entire defense. Just think if we land another big fish on D @ 27. Saints were already a good team last season ... if we can stay healthy ... look out.
