Default New Orleans at #2

So, with the signing of Drew Brees to a 6-year deal...this definitley throws all the draft mocks of with Leinhart projected to go #2.

So what's your guess of the Saints picking if they stay in the second draft position?

I'm going with: Williams

wonder what the Raiders are doing in all of this. I'm sure they are hoping somebody will drop to them. I think there is a real chance Vince Young could fall to them. I wouldnt count on it if I were them, but it seems like this makes them think their shot at getting a QB is much better.

I think they trade down or make a surprise pick although I could also see them taking D'Brick to help protect their new $60 million man. The case can be made for Mario Williams as well since Darren Howard left. The studs in this draft I would want are Bush, Williams or Vernon Davis.

Default Saints may still go QB

Len Pasquarelli still thinks that the Saints may draft a qb given the way the Brees contract is structured.

The Saints are blowing smoke about drafting a QB to pump up the pick. I think they'd like to trade down, but still pick up Ferguson, Davis, or Hawk. Now that the vet QB pieces are in place, it seems that the Titans, Jets, and Raiders are the teams that would most likely look at QB in the top 10.

Maybe one team falls in love with one of the top 3 QBs and makes the Saints an offer. Or maybe the Titans would be happy with Leinart or Young, the Jets happy with Leinart or Cutler, and the Raiders happy with the scraps. It's no slam dunk the Saints will be able to trade this pick.

The draft will lay out like this for one through three:
1. Reggie Bush - Texans
2. Mario Williams - New Orleans
3. Matt Leinart - Titans

The big question is if the Jets are successful in getting Ramsey from the Redskins. If that happens, I can see them trading down for more picks for someone interested in getting Young or Hawk. Green Bay really wants Hawk at #5, the Jets are set at linebacker, so if Green Bay feels they need to trade up to make sure they get him, I can see that. If the Jets don't get Ramsey, I see them drafting Young at #4.

That's my opinion, anyways.

John Clayton said this morning on Mike & Mike that if NO signed Brees their likely draft target would be Mario Williams, FWIW

IMO they prefer to trade down but I voted D'Brick because I don't think they get what they want and have to use the pick. I don't think they go Mario because they still have Charles Grant and Will Smith at DE. Grant had a down year but I think he is still solid and Smith is a young stud.

I say that they pick D'Brick. They are pretty set at DE. With Ferguson and Brown as the two tackles, they would have a pretty good line to block for Brees and McAlister.

The Saints now have a decent line, a very good set of WR's, a pro-bowl calliber running back and a pro-bowl QB. What is missing in this you ask? Why, a defense. Its Mario all the way.

They'll get Mario W. at #4. The more I think about this, I more that I think that the Jets will get desperate and move up to #2 to get M. Leinart so that the Titans don't pick him at #3.

Right now the draft depends on if the Redskins give up Ramsey to the Jets for a 7th rounder. I doubt it and they will likely end up doing it for a sixth though. That will make the guys at the top of the draft other than Mario, Reggie, and D'brick lose a little steam. The top end of the draft is usually for QBs but with so much movement other teams will be looking for the jump. The thought is this if we can get the Jets to think we have someone willing to trade up and get Leinhart we may be able to entice a trade, eventhough it would likely still mean we lose out on Mario Williams. Damn it move Weaver to 1gap DT and just take Mario number 1 it will be worth it.

Williams

Reasons:
1. They just lost Darren Howard to Philly.
2. He's worthy of the #2 pick.
3. They need a playmaker on defense in a bad way.
4. See #1-#3.

Or they trade down.

Darren Howard is #2 on their depth chart at right De..... I think they can live with out him.

If I were the Saints, I'd take the other Williams guy............ D'Angelo. Duece is Injury prone...... can't count on him to make the season.

It seems like the best players will be picked but the players the top 4 teams can use are projected to go 5th-10th.
