re: Fairly & Rankins reduce edge rusher need? - mm2316
I was all for another DL, as you can never have enough depth there. But we did take a DE in the 2nd last year, another DT in the 5th, and had a UDFA that played a lot of snaps. We're just going to have to trust these 2nd year guys to step up. What's the point of drafting these guys if we're just g...

re: Check in if you're not melting about rankins - mm2316
I'm ecstatic. It's one thing to prefer Lawson more, but if you hate this pick you're probably a moron. Is it a deep class at DT? Sure. But never every DT is created equal (NT/3tech/5tech, mental make up, etc), so why not get the best player at this position when it is a huge need? Pretty pumpe...

re: Draft rumor: Jets & Saints swap 1st rounders. Saints get Muhammed Wilkerson - mm2316
Since when does unrealistic fan wishes count as rumors? Barry seems like a good dude, but reading his work is nauseating. Regardless of his contract status or trade requests, to even think we could get a Pro Bowl defensive player in his prime by trading down 8 spots in the 1st is insane. I had t...

re: Saints "had talks about moving up to #1" ETA: Triplett Refute - mm2316
[quote]Its disinformation week.[/quote] The week before the draft is always the worst. One reason I'm not buying these Saints leaks is the story about Gregg Williams leaking draft picks to Jeff Duncan. I'm sure there are a lot of people involved with this process at the team facility, and it wo...

[quote]ok, why waste a 3rd Rd pick on Garrett Grayson last year?[/quote] If we took Lynch, Grayson would be a wasted pick in hindsight. However, at the time of the 2015 draft, the team likes Grayson as a prospect, and have NO idea where they will be picking next year and who will even be available ...

re: Daniel Jeremiah mocks QB Paxton Lynch to the Saints - mm2316
How would taking a QB at 12 affect Brees' pending FA? I've always been under the assumption that there was no way he would consider leaving in FA, but drafting a QB that early may change that. Why would he want to play out his last 2-4 years with a 1st round QB breathing down his neck? Also, if I we...

re: Rico Gathers, would you take him? - mm2316
The real question is would the Saints keep 4 TEs. We invested almost $50 mil in TEs this offseason, so I doubt any of them are going anywhere. Maybe with Hooman lining up as a H-back, we don't keep a FB on the 53, and keep 4 TEs....

re: "Highly Qualified Scout" has Saints taking offensive tackle at #12 - mm2316
For coming into the offseason late, I thought Peat looked pretty solid at tackle as the season went on. I'm confident in him to be the anchor at RT for many years. I wouldn't be upset with Conklin at 12. Armstead-Conklin-Unger-?-Peat is a good, young group at OL....
