Greedy Williams

Let me start out by saying that Iím not an LSU Homer. Now thatís out of the way, if Greedy Williams falls out of the first round would you be opposed to trading up in the 2nd round to pick him? I think that he would definitely be an improvement to our secondary especially with is ability to play man coverage with great size and speed. I think he only falls out of the first because their will be a run on OL and DL once the top of the draft is complete.

Re: Greedy Williams

Trade up with what? Did someone unearth a few extra picks we accidentally left under the couch cushion?

Re: Greedy Williams

Greedy isn't falling out of the 1st round.

Re: Greedy Williams

We all know that we have no issues with trading future picks. I’m not sure that he makes it out the first round either but if she does is it worth trading up maybe using a 3 from next year. I’ve read some stories and looked at some mock drafts that have him going in the second round.

Re: Greedy Williams

Let's consider the supposition that Greedy would fall that far - Why would bid, essentially against yourself, that much draft capital in a player every other team values less?

Further, if you're willing to gamble that much to move up, why not gamble equally, also show some draft discipline, and bet that he'll fall to your draft slot?

Besides, if there's any LSU player the Saints should select, it wouldn't require a second for Foster Moreau, who would be a boost in blocking at Tight End and Post-up Ability in the RedZone...

Is this Sean? Are you testing the limits of our fandom with more draft insanity?

Sean Payton is like a DC politician, he'll keep borrowing against future generations or even print the picks if he feels like it. He's spending other people's capital...

Re: Greedy Williams

Taking a CB at 62 wouldn’t shock me, but trading up for one certainly would. We would have to trade away our 2020 2nd round pick to move up.

You can never have too many CB’s, but we already have 5 locks to make the roster (Latt, Apple, Robinson, PJ Williams and Hardee.) A late round pick to compete with Crawley should suffice.

Re: Greedy Williams

No way would I draft him if he fell all the way to round 5. He abandoned his college team what makes you think he won’t pull a Levon bell in a contract season? He’s about greedy. It’s all in his name.

I agree with you, sir. That turned me off and he played slightly above average at lsu but not spectacular.
