And how do YOU know he isn't or won't? Huh? Once again, we don't know **** about any of this as compared to those who rely upon it as their living.

Respectfully disagree, I believe at this point we should be loading the positions with future starters for when Brees is done. But all it seems like we are doing is drafting guys to play special teams or get cut.

The thing about the safety position is that we really only had Marcus Williams, Vonn Bell and Chris Banjo. We normally carry five. We needed depth there.

Guys taken in different rounds, different draft grades with completely different skill sets & pedigree.

Not a fair comparison.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

6th & 7th are a crap shoot. Colston & Brady are 2 off the top of my head.

If you're drafting for immediate starters or key contributors after the 4th, your roster is pretty much trash.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

Allow me to rephrase my earlier message - if we are just picking guys that are going to get cut because of the "roster too good" ideal, then we should have packaged those picks to move up and select players in the 3rd / 4th round that could potentially help, rather than wasting picks on late rounders that will just get cut.

I like your thinking. Only flaw is 31 other teams are looking to fleece you good and hard, lawyer style...they could have fished around but got no bites. Which reminds me of my typical fishing trips.

Edit: we did use some pick collateral to jump up in the 2nd & 4th. They did better than me, come to think of it.

Re: 2019 Saints NFL Draft

The Saints traded up twice to get players(McKoy, Gardner) that will help this season.

Didn't the Saints have the best regular season record in football last year?

What am I missing here?
