    • In catcher_0_3's scenario I would think we would take Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie if we couldn't trade down.

        are you just guessing?

        payton is big on getting the best player available, so i would not put it outside the realm of possibility - especially after AP last year.

          Yes, but I know that we always go BPA and it wouldn't surprise me in the least.
          The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

            DRC.
            Mike Jenkins.
            Ryan Clady.
            Darren McFadden (assuming he's there).
            Rashard Mendenhall.

            All viable options.

              In other news, I've been tossing around ideas for who the Saints could get and was wondering what you guys thought of this:

              1. Keith Rivers, LB, USC
              2. Dre Moore, DT, Maryland
              3. Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
              5. Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee
              6. Titus Brown, DE, Mississippi St.
              7. D.J. Hall, WR, Alabama

              Here's another thought. Trade down to #19 with Philadelphia in exchange for Lito Sheppard (not my ideal trade but one that would benefit us).

              1. DeSean Jackson, WR, Cal
              2. Phillip Wheeler, OLB, Georgia Tech
              3. Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
              5. Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee
              6. Titus Brown, DE, Mississippi St.
              7. Fernando Velasco, C, Georgia


              1 - Dorsey/Sedrick Ellis: DT, USC = one of them will fall
              2 - Antoine Cason: CB, UA
              3 - Andre Caldwell: WR, UF
              5 - Eric Scott: C, Kentucky
              6 - Matt Flynn: QB, LSU
              7 - Ryan Torain: RB, Arizona St.

              i would also like to see us trade J. David to a team that runs a cover 2 (bucs), we could pick up a pick and draft a solid corner or LB

              Comment


              • With the money we gave David, we can't afford to trade him. Not to mention our coaching staff thinks he can bounce back from last season.

                  i know for a fact that payton went to a few LSU games last year - his son is a big fan. i think he also went to the NC game. if we do trade up, which i dont think we will, i think it will be for dorsey. dont get me wrong, i would love to see either DMc or Dorsey, but i think the price will be too high. but then again who would have guessed meachem last year?

                  Comment


                  • Oh, if we're able to trade up I have no doubt it's either for Dorsey or Ellis. I'm just saying if we trade up when both of them are off the board...

                    • for DMc, i think Dal would be willing to give up more than we would.

                      • With the Draft just days away I thought I'd make a little scenario of what will happen concerning the Saints' first round pick. Feel free to comment on things I might have missed or if you agree/disagree with my arguments.


                        The first pick is an easy one since the Dolphins already have signed their guy.

                        Miami Dolphins select Jake Long, OT, Michigan

                        With the Rams on the clock there are a few possibilities with Chris Long, Glenn Dorsey, Vernon Gholston or a trade-down as the most likely. I don't think we or anybody else will move all the way up to #2, and the Rams will be forced to make their pick. Their most glaring need is at defensive end, so I'm pretty confident with this pick.

                        St. Louis Rams select Chris Long, DE, Virginia

                        Now the Falcons is on on the clock and they have two likely options, Glenn Dorsey or Matt Ryan. The latest word out of Atlanta is that they might have turned their attention to Ryan. Maybe they don't like what they see throwing on their practice field? To be honest I'm going back and forth on this one, but right now I'd give the edge to Ryan.

                        Atlanta Falcons select Matt Ryan, QB, Boston College

                        What to do with the Raiders? *Reading Al Davis' mind*
                        Vernon Gholston you say? So you are really passing on McFadden? Well, okay. As you wish.

                        Oakland Raiders select Vernon Gholston, DE, Ohio State

                        After trading Jared Allen the Chiefs now have two 1st round picks. They really need an offensive tackle, but do they take him here? It would be reach, but then again, the good ones might all be gone by the time the 17th pick comes around. Other options might be a guy to replace Jared Allen, but there is no one left that is worth the pick. This pick really is the wild card of the top 10, and I would not at all rule out a trade. With Matt Ryan already taken the teams looking for a signal caller are out. There are only one player I think teams might want to trade up for, and that is Glenn Dorsey. McFadden will still be one the clock for the Jets at #6, so they stand pat.

                        * TRADE ALERT: New Orleans get #5, and send #10, #41 and next years 3rd to Kansas City. *

                        The Saints make the move to get up and take Glenn Dorsey. The cost is swapping 1st round picks, this years 2nd round pick and next years 3rd which should be a reasonable deal for both sides. The Chiefs now can get their tackle at #10 which will most likely leave them choosing between everyone that was also on the board at #5 (maybe except for one if the Pats take a tackle at #7).

                        New Orleans Saints select Glenn Dorsey, DT, L.S.U.

                        All excited the Jets run their card up to the podium and the commissioner reads out to the eagerly awaiting Jets fans.

                        New York Jets select Darren McFadden, RB, Arkansas.

                        That's how far into the Draft I'm gonna go given the fact that we already have made our pick. Feel free to comment :)

                        • I think that's a very logical mock but I still hate the idea of moving up that high and having to give up our 2nd round pick.

                          • I think it all depends on whether the Falcons take Dorsey at #3. I don't think we will trade up to #2, but if the Falcons take Matt Ryan I really believe the Saints would pretty much do what it takes to get up to #5 at get him. That's under the assumption that the Raiders take either Gholston or McFadden at #4 though. Who knows what Al Davis will do...

                              I have a feeling that if Dorsey is on the board when the Falcons selection is up that they take him. They can get a QB like Brohm, Henne, or Flacco in the 2nd Rd. If an elite talent like Dorsey is available they take him.

                                i agree, but would that mean that we could trade up to #5 to get McFadden? We were talking a little about this last night. payton is big on getting the best available player, and i think many would have McFadden as the best player in the draft. if we could get best player in the draft at 5, i think we would have to do it, and go DT in the 2nd.... the fact that we signed two DB's, LB, etc, really opens up our possibilities.

                                the other side to that coin is that ellis would still be there too.

                                i just keep thinking back to last year when we got meachem. if you would have asked anybody what our deepest position was WR would have been in the top 3, yet we draft a WR in the first round.
