Don't forget...we traded up for Morestead and that worked out. We also traded up for LSU's Al Woods and he didn't even make the f'n team!
In part this effort is to hopefully reduce the number of threads about players that have no realistic chance of landing in NOLA
I pray this doesn't happen. Trading up never really pays off for us.
Besides better players one of the benefits of drafting higher is that the pool of possible draftees get much easier to define. At this point I have these names as 0% chance of being available at #15. Trading up might be a possibility if one would be around at #12-14. Higher than that and the price becomes exorbitant. Also one of the suckiest things is that the Bucs & Panthers pick at #13 & 14- not the most conducive trade partners.
In part this effort is to hopefully reduce the number of threads about players that have no realistic chance of landing in NOLA. The next tier is where we need to focus discussion. Seven more beyond these will go before the Saints pick. Can we agree on these as consensus no-way-possibles? Whaddya say?

quote:I haven't advocated him in any form whatsoever. If you want to take on betting that he will be selected before the Saints pick we can work out sumpin.
Geno Smith? You would never make it as a GM you would be fired 2 minutes after you drafted him.
Corey Lemonier just declared for the draft. Projected 3rd round DE/LB. 6'4" 240. Definite guy to keep an eye on. Pass rush specialist.
