Not really, because if someone signs him well more than likely get our 3rd rounder back.

They can watch Marcus Davenport becomes a beast next year with 10 sacks and a dominant run defender and laugh at everyone.

I mean that's if we don't sign anyone to a long term or massive contract.

re: saints draft outlook is very thin
Honestly this is what you do of course you have to have a partner.

Study who has what available as picks. Is there a team with 2 3rd round picks or a high 3rd and a high 4th.

The draft is supposed to be stacked. So you use your draft board and place high 2nd round grades on a few guys. If they fall to your pick which I believe is #62 then you draft them.

I would target guys that I had in the top 45. If that guy is not there then look to trade back.

re: saints draft outlook is very thin
Realistically the Saints have one of the most complete rosters in the NFL

Saints as long as they have a decent FA in retaining guys and bringing in 1-2 pieces will have the opposite of an abysmal draft.

When you only need 1-2 things it is very easy to hit on those things in the draft.

Ask the Raiders about an abysmal draft...they dont have enough picks to fill all their holes.

Saints roster looks very good at this point. Saints have enough money to sign a DT and slot WR. They can draft a TE in 2nd rd. There are 2 D lineman will drop because of injuries. Both of them are top picks in this draft. They might drop to 2nd rd for Saints too.

The point of insurance is to pay for it but hope to never have to use. If you look at Bridgewater that way it worked out perfectly.

it was also a long term consideration. if Brees retired at the end of the season holding the Lombardi...Saints would have had someone on the roster ready to take the mantle vs scrambling to find someone when everyone knows you are looking

again sucks that it doesnt look like we will get more out of it than what we did but considering we should have won the SB I cant complain about the decision

re: saints draft outlook is very thin
It never fails how so many on here want to "win the draft". Many franchises have been "winning" the draft for years and have not even sniffed the playoffs in over a decade. We went all in last year to get a DE that had a true first round grade and this year our first pick this year is 62th overall in the second round and we are going to select the best overall prospect that fills a need, that's it. The Saints need to land solid free agents this year to be able to make a run. Unless we get lucky I doubt we will draft any rookies that will make a huge impact this year.

we already had insurance with hill, but we could have signed quite a few free agents to hold a clipboard that would have not cost us a pick.

Teddy was a pro bowl QB before his injury, you aren’t finding many of those floating around. Hill is a great part of this team, but we aren’t making a Super Bowl run with him as a starting QB, Teddy on the other hand leaves us poised to do that.

i kinda agree hill isnt an every down QB but to be honest, after last year, he seems to be getting much better in the pocket so im willing to re-evaluate what his starting QB value is, and im inclined to believe he could get there.

TB was worth the gamble and quite frankly im shocked at just how bad he played when he did play and i find it hard to put the guy we saw playing and the guy he was pre injury together, there seems to be two completely different talent levels there which is hard to explain.

TB looks to be a bust but you only know that now, at the time of the trade, all signs pointed to him being a capable and competent QB who should be able to earn a starting QB role with most teams. it didnt turn out that way and its hard to understand how a player can regress to such a point hell he took the vikings to the playoffs yet he now cant seem to run a base offense

Exactly. You don't wake up on December 31st and say "man, I didn't suffer a life threatening injury or illness this year, I really wasted a lot of money on health insurance" do you?

I would be willing to do that for Simmons. I think he will be an all pro type of guy. Then when everyone is healthy we will have an absolutely dominant dline

Using hindsight, I totally agree with this. If Teddy wasn’t traded to be the future, then we literally tossed a 3rd round pick in the garbage. It’s a stupid move.
