In Topic: Dante Fowler, he be hurt.

They've certainly had some bad luck with their recent high draft picks (Blackmon, Joeckel, now Fowler). Sad news and feel for the guy, hope Fowler bounces back from this, talented kid with hopefully still a bright future.

In Topic: on paper, our new RB Jordan Todman is an upgrade over Fozzy

He should be a decent addition to the special teams, and as a capable player to give some carries to in the running game.

I still think we could draft a RB in the draft to be the second guy to pair with Stewart, since I'm not sure that Todman or Fozzy are sufficient if Stewart goes down [again].

In Topic: Saints trading again?

Sean Payton said very clearly they won't be trading up for MM.


Maybe Payton was serious when he said that. But just because someone says they won't, doesn't mean they won't.

If they make it public knowledge they want Mariota and want to trade up for him, then everyone knows what they're going to do, and it is very likely that the price goes up. So by saying they won't, or dismissing it, it at least keeps people guessing, which outside of the Bucs in this year's draft is what teams tend to do.

That said, while they probably won't trade up for Mariota, it wouldn't surprise me if they did.

In Topic: SB Nation does not have a clue

Early days, but Gettleman tops the table for draft picks who become all rookies with 27.27%, with 3 out of 11 picks.

Potentially with Star, Short, Turner, Boston, and Benjamin he's drafted guys who've become contributors on this team. And plucked some undrafted gems like Norwell and White as well.

So I've no idea how SB nation come to the conclusion they have...

May sound crazy, but this draft decides the fate of Drew Brees. Hit in the draft, he retires a Saint. Whiff, and they'll be trading him in 2016 IMO.


It wouldn't surprise me to see them trade up for Mariota. They can sit him for a year behind Brees, and if he's ready, trade Brees to a QB needy team. Or they can sit him behind Brees for the last two seasons of his deal, then let Brees walk and replace him with Mariota.

Granted I don't want to see the Saints go from one franchise QB to their next without a period of decline. But it wouldn't surprise me to see them try to land Brees' successor this year with the moves they're making. Then again, maybe they do decide to stick with paying big money to Brees for the foreseeable future...
