    Oh and spoon says hi.


    but seriously, who of the players the saints drafted would actually improve the team in the upcoming two seasons.

    spoiler alert: the answer is maybe woods or tennant but noone else


    Saints 2014 draft wish list:
    - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
    - Corner or Wideout in the first
    - No reaching
    - No Kelvin Benjamin

    • just watched 'highlights' on patrick robinson again and I seriously think the saints got a better player in udfa junior galette then where they spend their first rounder on. really lost for words on that pick still

        See, now I have to hope Spoon blows out a knee or something. It's not that I dislike the players we took. You have to admit, we got great value for our picks. What I don't like is that I don't feel like we addressed obvious team needs.

          I treat Mike Mayocks word on DB's like the gospel, and he was very high on Robinson. Mayock said Robinson had the "best feet in the draft". I think he could be quite a player.

            We still just have a gaping hole at OLB, but other than that, we added a ton of great players.

            If Jammal is moved for an OLB, and Sharper doesn't resign, then this draft looks amazing.

            Otherwise, we have 3 guys with huge upside for our first 3 picks, and drafting for need can get you in trouble a lot.

            It isn't likely that the rookies will come straight in as impact starters either way.

            If we make a move for an OLB, I'll be fine with it, if we go to bat with Arnoux/Dunbar battling for the OLB spot, I'll be worried.
            I'm with S-T. We did what we always do in the draft, add more talent to our team and not rely on what we need to dictate it. Now, I do think we definitely need an upgrade at OLB but otherwise I LOVE what we did. The value for the picks we selected was great.
            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.''

            “We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. We’ve shown we’ve been able to do that.” - Jabari Greer

              im not saying i know better or anything but the kind of tackles he missed worried me a lot. Im done discussing that a corner shouldnt have been drafted anyway but his lack of physicallity and the terrible tackling just makes me wonder. He looks like a better athlete than football player

              • "And starting at OLB is Stanely Arnoux, 2nd year player from Wake Forest"

                Does that not worry others as much as me?

                Also, Spoon to the Falcons and Norwood to the Saints has pissed me off

                  • Question: If the Colts passed on Jerry Hughes, would he be a Saint right now?

                    Also, why didn't you guys take Sergio Kindle at #32?

                    Seems to me that LB/DE need > CB need for the Saints, no?

                      I think that the saints passed on kindle due to injury concerns and would think hughes would have been a saints if he was there. Corner wasnt a need at all so year both linebacker and DEnd are way bigger needs. I think he would be a slb for the saints if he was here. But then again there are like 40 players id take over robinson at 32

                      • Yeah, there has to be a bigger issue regarding Kindle's knees. I think the Colt's snatched Hughes right out from under us, and he probably would be a Saint if Indy hadn't picked him.

                        • The Saints were prepared to take TCU rush specialist Jerry Hughes at No. 32 when the Colts nabbed him right from under their noses at No. 31.

                              no linebackers in the entire draft, spooooooonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn!!!!!!!!!!!:D :D

                              i also told you guys to watch out for junior galette.



                              look at my original mock draft. i warned you that TE and DT would be big targets. danario alexander slipped because he had another surgery but any missouri fan would still tell you that he was probably their best player last year.



                              go ahead and pat yourself on the back for your center pick. matt tennant, LMAO. oh the shoe tasted good only because the jags reached for alualu. we'll see how that works out. :p :p :p :p
