Saints constantly whiff on 1st round defenders. Guess that point missed you
Besides Bush and Jordan, none of our first rounders have been that good.
But the point is stupid. Should we just always trade out of the first round? The fourth round has treated us well in recent years. Should we trade around until we have 7 fourth round picks?
Top 10 picks are supposed to be elite.
That's where I disagree. "Elite" is "elite" and not by where you are drafted. Elite would be closer to guys in the top 2 or 3 picks. Peyton Manning, Charles Woodson, Larry Fitzgerald, Calvin Johnson. Those guys are elite. Did anyone think Darius Heyward-Bey, Ted Ginn Jr, Troy Williamson or Blaine Gabbert was going to be elite because they went in the top 10?
And enough people are remembering Ellis being a great prospect so I will defer. I just remember being kind of "ehhh" with the pick.
