The Saints will draft the BPA
I feel like this is said way too much about this organization when we don't pick the BPA in the 1st. We tend to go with needs.
See: Sed Ellis
(most painful pick in this regimes history I feel. An obvious plug a hole pick. You don't even want to look at all the guys drafted behind Sed. We traded up to 7
for him after trying to trade up even higher to draft another
DT in Dorsey) Mark Ingram
(wanted him so bad we still couldnt pass after making an actual BPA pick) P-rob
(I'm leaning towards a need pick, no actual substance to my opinion on this one, it was pick 32)
Actual BPA picks: Jenkins
(#2 ranked DB) Cam Jordan
(this is the only time I can think off that they clearly passed up a want for a BPA pick) Reggie Bush
(most had #1)
Not really sure where to put Meachem
, I remember draft rankers busting our balls for this pick but when I try to see how Meachem was ranked now, it seems he had a huge 1 year run in 2006 at tenn and might have shot up draft boards.
So we always go BPA? I disagree
I think we try to hard on 1st rounders, then lose the pressure to fill a gap and go with actual BPA and high ceiling picks the rest of the draft.
