      Rivers, Connor, Philips should be your top choices at your pick. I highly doubt Ellis and Dorsey fall there as I expect them both to be top 5 picks.

      • Ideally I'd want to see them take Dorsey or Ellis, but Dorsey is all but impossible and Ellis isn't likely either.

        Kenny Phillips or Keith Rivers/Dan Connor are more likely. I could deal with that.

        Just as long as it isn't like..DeSean Jackson I'll be okay.

        • I'm really starting to lean towards Keith Rivers. Although I'd love to see Ali Highsmith in a Saints uniform, Rivers seems to be a more complete linebacker. My ideal draft would have us drafting someone like Sedrick Ellis in the first.

          One thing about this years draft is that it is going to be very deep at LB, which is good for us.

          • I think picking at 10, you've got a great shot to get a guy who will make an impact no matter who you take.

            Obviously, the secondary seems to be the weakest part of the defense (although the rest isn't very good), so I'd almost like to see them take Kenny. Guy can play.

            If Sedrick Ellis is around, though, they'd be stupid to pass him up. Which means they probably will.

              We need so much secondary help. We also need guys who can play now so we're going to have to go after a couple corners in FA. We can fix our defense but it's going to take a lot of work.

              Still, the guys I would happy with us taking are Keith Rivers, Sedrick Ellis, Mike Jenkins, and my sleeper is Leodis McKelvin, CB, from Troy.

              • What's the report on Curtis Lofton?

                I just saw a vid of him on Youtube, and this guy looks like a BEAST. We sure could use someone like him. If he has a good combine, a low 40, he could shoot up boards like Willis last year, and then he warrant a draft pick at where we are at.

                • Am I the only one that thinks we should draft Jacob Hester and move Reggie to WR. I know Hester and Deuce are pretty similar in styles but how great would it be to see him in the Superdome every weekend? The guy is a gamer and would probably ease the loss of Deuce when he gets hurt again. (We all know its gonna happen, don't mean to jinx him or anything) He probably won't be drafted til the 3rd or 4th because of 40 times, ect but we all know he's a beast. And maybe even use the 7th rounder on Will Arnold. Without the injuries the man is a monster, maybe he can shake the injuries off with a pro medic staff.

                  As for the 1st, I would love to spend it on Ellis or Phillips. With the way everyone is downplaying Dorsey though, it's not all that far fetched that he could fall a little.

                  Big time Thank You to BoneKrusher!

                    I see Hester as an H back and while that would be useful we really have no where for him on the roster. He's too small to line up at full back or TE. He's not quick enough to line-up at RB. I just don't see him contributing much as a pro.

                    I do agree with you that we need to move Reggie to WR.

                    • Moving Bush to a WR is a completely horrid idea no way it's sliced.
                      The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                      • At 10 It's Ellis, Phillips, if both are gone then trade down and take Talib/Connor.

                        It's a completely great idea. He's not an effective RB in the NFL.

                          It's only his second year. When used properly (as in his rookie season), he showed exactly effective he can be on our offense and other defensives in the league. Moving him to WR takes away all his versatility. Bad idea.

                            You're probably right. Averaging over 3.3 ypc is highly overrated.

                            • You still seem to be missing the point. Reggie Bush is suited best by being used in space and able to create opportunities. No, he's not the best in between the tackle runner, however, you move him to WR and you'd have him constantly lined up against the opposing team's second or nickel CB. Everyone says Bush should move to WR, but how many times has Bush actually ran a route farther than 10 yards? He gets most of his catches as dropoffs or a hot route from Brees -- many times (especially in his rookie season) he'd catch a 3-yard pass (from the backfield mind you) and turn it into at least a first down. Heck, you can even look at the biggest play he's made in his career thus far was in the NFLCG game against the Bears. He didn't initially line up at WR, he was motioned to the outside (which caused a great deal of confusion to the Bears defense) got the pick from Colston and was gone. Even though, Bush hasn't been stellar thus far (although, his rookie season was still solid) moving him to strictly WR would be a big mistake.

                              • Well when he's the RB he's either doing one of these.

                                A.) Getting stuffed up the middle
                                B.) Getting caught on the outside because he can't turn the corner
                                C.) Getting a stupid screen pass that doesn't work
                                D.) Running a 2 yard route on 3rd and 9 and getting 3 yards because he goes down after 1st contact
