100 bucks says both of the Browns picks will be flops.

I am seeing a lot of speculation the Saints will target Marlon Humphrey. Would definitely fill a big need in the secondary.

IMO, and that's all it is, we need to do enough to maintain on defense - add some where we can add some - but we should make our priority the o-line. That'll help Drew and whomever eventually replaces him. Building that o-line should be task #1.

I would agree. However I think we are set at LT and that's pretty much the only position on the OL that would warrant a pick in the top 10. The only way I would like us to pick a guard that high is if it was the next Larry Allen.

Pick #5 is worth its weight in gold. Thats where I would love to be sitting come draft day. Take a true game changer or trade down and reap the rewards.

Agreed, I believe Kalil Mack was taken with the 5th pick.

Re: Preliminary Draft Order - Saints Currently @ No. 8

odds are we will not have top talent drop into our laps

second tier level of talent appears deep and if needs is the governing factor, trading back a few spot will still allow us the chance to get that talent.

Then again I am trade back freak.

As long as you stay in the top 15 we should have more than player still on the board to fill a need with BPA qualities.

I really like and I mean really like players getting 3rd 4th 5th rankings by the media that fill needs.

I want more picks, then again I always do lol
