How the fvck did Joe Montana not go till the 3rd round but the Saints drafted a kicker 11th overall



Montana didn't grade out very well with scouts apparently even though he had good numbers at ND.

Shawn Knight played for 3 teams (Saints, Broncos, Cardinals) for 1 year each. He played in 31 games and his only recorded stat was a fumble recovery (that probably rolled under him as he had already been thrown or, more likely, fell to the turf).

Yes, Shawn Knight had a statistically worse career than Jonathan Sullivan.

But cutting first round picks wasn't impossible then as it was years later. Given what we gave up for JS, it's probably a worse pick.

We traded Knight to Denver for Ted Gregory, Denver's 1st round bust from the same class as Knight, 1987.

I know the salary cap implications from cutting Sullivan probably had a greater affect on team finances than trading Knight, but at least Sullivan did SOMETHING for us.

To be fair, every team except the 49ers were kicking themselves, not just the Saints.

Didn't we trade 2 first round picks to move up to get Sullivan?

To give up your entire draft for one 1st round pick had never been done before.
It was such a bad idea it will likely never be done again. Ever.
Thats is the very definition of a 'worst pick' ever.

Alex Molden over Eddie George



Good move at the time because of need.

Plus, Eddie George is one of the most overrated players ever. People complain about Reggie's and Ingram's ypc...
