Yes, it's the golden age of Saints football. Besides winning and success it is cool to be set as a franchise. Ancient Saints teams were a veritable turnstile for both personnel and staff.

[b]First round (No. 15 overall) — Jarvis Jones, OLB, Georgia[/b]
The writing is beginning to solidify with this pick. If things go as we think they will, the Saints will have a shot at one of the best pure pass-rusher available in this year’s draft.
There’s no doubt Jarvis Jones will be one of the...

[b]15. New Orleans Saints: Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State[/b]
At 6-1, 210 pounds, Rhodes ran a strong 4.43 40-yard-dash at the Combine and jumps off the screen in his game tape. He’s a big, fast physical specimen who can play right from the get-go. Though raw, he could help a defense that gave ...
