No flash. Strong players with some versatility. B- potential but mostly C+ until proven which is what you want IMO. Take the given. Start reaching for some savior that rarely happens and that's when the hole can't be un-dug.

Re: Rate the Draft

Love the players, but we've got to get out of this trend of borrowing so much future draft capital...

Re: Rate the Draft

I voted C ... the players we got have great upside, but all the moving around and not grabbing a wideout does concern me. Sure hope this draft pans out but right now it feels like a 50/50 proposition.

They have done that forever. Not a bad strategy either. Being in debt is not a bad thing when at some point like a couple years ago we basically hit a bunch of home runs. It was probably the best Saints draft of all time. The teams with the best picks and lots of them often suck to the point where nothing is going to help them. Poor leadership.

Re: Rate the Draft

Iím a B- the players we really wanted got snatched up I few picks before but we biotched till the cows came home for our guard play and we filled that. We needed backer we filled that
Wasnít expecting a TE at all so good luck with Dayton flyer baller. The QB in the last trade will be a dud. But itís his athleticism that they pulled the trigger on . I believe he ran all over the national champions on a Saturday nite. That opened Paytonís eyes , potential possibly but gave away draft pick next year for a cat that would have been on the streets I think. Good job to all who picked the rite guys . I pumped for some

Re: Rate the Draft

I give it a B. I like the picks, though I still don't like the price that was paid for Trautman. The last guy is a crap shoot. If they drafted him to be a QB it's an awful pick. If they drafted him to be a Taysom clone...well, let's see if he can handle that.

I think that's the type of young QB that Payton is looking for. Stevens is one of those cocky confident type guys that has great athletic ability. I think as far as a passer, he believes he can mold him into one. I mean look at how well Taysom looks after just a few years under Payton's tutelage. Stevens isn't a horrible passer, but he's definitely not NFL ready. Payton will make him though.
