but it looks like he is thinking of him as a RT if we don't resign Strief
that would make a lot more sense. Strief just strikes me as that veteran that the Saints would resign. Maybe as opposed to someone like Malcolm Jenkins.
I don't know.
I would not hate the pick as it fills a need but I feel like safety would be pushed to the top of the board if Jenkins isn't resigned. Course, there is a good chance that both Pryor and HAHA are gone. In that scenario, I'd hope for Jason Verrett or C.J. Moseley instead. I like Ford too but it just seems like he's received a lot of momentum because of his Senior Bowl Week and I think we know that isn't always the best measure.
It does mean something but keep in mind defensive lineman/OLB's tend to overwhelm the O-linemen in the one-on-one drills at the Senior Bowl. It seems to happen every year.
