[quote]When we are talking about the 5th or 6th WR, that's exactly what they need: A skill that sets them apart from all of the other WRs. That could be "Special Teams Ace" or Blocking or Returner. But they need something to set them apart.
Meachem has that.
Meach is at disadvantage b...

Why? Because we scout better than most franchises.

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Look Like WRs Are Gonna Go Quick - CM84 on 5/6/14 at 6:06 pm|
I'm sure there will be a run on WRs in the 1st round and I think it will benefit the Saints. If there is a run on WRs, a good player will fall to 27th.
I fully expect the Saints to take two WRs with our 1st through 5th rd picks (two 5ths).
BPA falls to 27th, use the 2nd rd and either the 4th...
