    saints have henderson, green, and patten, all of whom are more than capable of being effective at slot in paytons offense, no way saints should draft a guy like desean jackson.

        Henderson & Patten are both on one-year contracts too. If Jackson's there in the second, he'd be a great pick for Payton's offense.
        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.''

        • If hes there in the second he'd be a great value.

          I see Scott has us taking Dan Connor in the second in his new mock. That would thrill me..I love that guy.

          • My Perfect draft scenario:

            1st - DRC or McKelvin - I know they are small school guys but we seem to have success with those types ie Colston and Evans.
            2nd - Connor or Lofton - Vilma, Connor and Fujita or Morgan would be pretty nice. We haven't had linebackers like that since the Dome Patrol. They aren't near the Dome Patrol but still pretty damn good.
            3rd - Dustin Keller TE - We need a pass catching TE.
            5th - Any center. Godwin played well when Faine was out but we could def use some depth there.
            6th, 7th - Best player available. Matt Flynn would be a nice backup for Drew.

            Big time Thank You to BoneKrusher!

              I think Patten will retire after this year. He's a good safety valve but that's about it. He's running low on fuel in the tank. This is Henderson's make or break year.
              With our other receivers, Lance Moore is a dawg. The dude will catch anything thrown to him but he's nothing more than a 4th WR. Copper is a 5th receiver at best. He's nothing special but we could do a lot better. Meachem should be the starter opposite Colston.

              What I'm trying to say, I guess, is this: I really wouldn't be mad at all if we traded down with Philly, picked up Lito Sheppard, and grabbed DeSean Jackson. In fact, I'd be pretty damn happy with that.

              I'd love to grab McKelvin and Conner in the 1st and 2nd rounds respectively. That'd be a dream for me.

              Dustin Keller would be amazing to land but he won't get out of the 2nd round. Martellus Bennett or Brad Cottam in the 3rd would be nice. Hell a trade with the Jets for pick 102 and Dewayne Robertson would be my dream.

              5th, 6th, and 7th we should go BPA. I'd like to get someone like QB Josh Johnson in the 5th to back up Brees. I think Matt Flynn would be a terrible choice as a backup. Hell Paul Smith would be nice.

              • If we can work out a trade were we send #78 to the Jets for #102 and Dewayne Robertson, that would value Robertson to a early 4th (#98) which should be fair. So I'm all for it. Maybe have the Jets throw in a late round pick also?

                When it comes to the possibility of a Shockey trade, I'm a little more hesitant. Especially if we would have to give up our 2nd round pick, were we can pick up a very good defensive player. A guy like Bennett in the middle rounds would be better I think :) But if we first work out a trade for Robertson, we won't have a pick in the 3rd were Bennett likely goes, so we would have to do some dealing to land him.

                Another possibility would be to try and get Jermichael Finley in the 4th who I also really like :)

                Edit: Looking at most mock drafts they have Sedrick Ellis going #9 to the Bengals. If he in fact falls that far on Draft Day I think we would just have to make a move to get him and there should be plenty of trading partners. If the Ravens stays put at #8 and Ryan is still on the board after the Jets pick they would probably want to trade down to #10 since neither New England, Cincinnati or we will take Ryan. New England is also an option (if Gholston and Long are off the board) since they seem to stockpile picks every year.

                  I was thinking the same thing. And remember that NE also likes future picks so we might could get away with swapping firsts and giving them a pick next year. If Ellis is still on the board when NE picks, and that possibility is very high in my opinion, then I think we make a deal w/ the devil and move up.

                  I'd love to trade for Dewayne Robertson. Although he has a huge contract, I'm sure we could re-negotiate something. He also doesn't fit with the 3-4 and could be a NT in our system.

                  • Robertson's contract is a deal-breaker. He have to agree to a new (and much cheaper) deal before we would finalize a trade for him.

                    • Anybody read the Advocate today? Very good article on Robert Meachem and how he's maturing and trying to get help from Patten on how to be a WR.

                        • This one really surprises me, and at first I didn't think it was true, but New Orleans is serious about trading into the top four -- preferably for LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey but not only for Dorsey. Wish I could tell you the other apple of their eye, but I don't know who he is.

                            I hope that we don't trade up that high. If we do trade up let's trade up to get S. Ellis.

                            In other news, I've been tossing around ideas for who the Saints could get and was wondering what you guys thought of this:

                            1. Keith Rivers, LB, USC
                            2. Dre Moore, DT, Maryland
                            3. Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
                            5. Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee
                            6. Titus Brown, DE, Mississippi St.
                            7. D.J. Hall, WR, Alabama

                            Here's another thought. Trade down to #19 with Philadelphia in exchange for Lito Sheppard (not my ideal trade but one that would benefit us).

                            1. DeSean Jackson, WR, Cal
                            2. Phillip Wheeler, OLB, Georgia Tech
                            3. Red Bryant, DT, Texas A&M
                            5. Brad Cottam, TE, Tennessee
                            6. Titus Brown, DE, Mississippi St.
                            7. Fernando Velasco, C, Georgia

                              • What if McKelvin, Rivers, and Ellis are gone, then who do you think the Saints will take?
