  • New Orleans Saints Draft thread

    Assuming that none of the top Corners or Linebackers fall to the Saints in the Draft, would you draft Ted Ginn Jr.

    He would add a new dimension to our offense that we do not already have with someone who has the ability to reach paydirt every time he touches the ball. He is absolutely filthy when he gets a glimpse of space. He would be a nice to have opposite of Colston. His Kick/Punt returning ability would help the Saints too, we would be able to get better field position.

    What do you think?

      I agree.

      If by some chance he is, I would pass only because we have so many Defensive needs.

      we already have an explosive return guy, Bush.

        Bush is not that great of a return man because he tries to juke to many people out and ends up losing yards some of the time. Whereas Ginn just uses his speed and goes straight up the field or breaks it to the corner, he does very little juking. the one return for a touchdown that Reggie had was poor punt coverage by the bucs more that it was reggie. Not to discredit reggie but he is not that great of a return man.
        You say that Ginn will be gone, he very well could be, but with the emergence of Meachem and Bowe both showcasing their talents in the Combine and Ginn siting out the combine, he is likely due for a slide. You never know, if we did go Ginn then I think we would be alright as long as we went defense for the rest of the picks

              What does that have to do with anything? I was referring to how our names were all messed up from our previous ones.

              Auron is also a derivative from the Latin word for Gold, Aurum..hence the periodic table listing (Au), and Gold is the Saints primary color...

                I would, if there was no better LB, DT, CB, OL, or Greg Olsen was off the board...

                  Speaking of Greg Olsen, he has put on some clinics at the combine and has likely worked his way into the bottom of the first or the beginning of the second round. His speed and his hands not to mention his lineage are all real positives for him. The only offensive players I can see the Saints taking are WR and TE, with that being said my WR favorites are Ginn and Meachem and TE are Olsen and Ben Patrick. I could see the Saints trading up in the 2nd round for Olsen or Meachem if they fall that far. Both would be great additions to our team. I think that Olsen would give our offense something we have never had. There are no great TEs in Free Agency so he would be sight for sore eyes for Brees whose wreaks havoc with a solid TE

                    Ex. 511 would be 5-11 7/8, 6044 would be 6-4 1/2, 5093 would be 5-9 3/8, etc...

                        I think with Willis' combine numbers that takes him out of our reach, as he will probably be the 1st LB off the board now.

                        I really like what I saw from Poz, and some of the other LBs...


                        really wish Cornerbacks would run today. I will be awaiting that.

                          Desmond Bishop having 33 reps at 225 is impressive. I would like to see us pick him up on Day 2. Don't know much about him, but Antwan Barnes running a 4.40 is also very impressive.

                              I hope Aaron Ross doesn't run *too* good so we can still have a shot at him.
