Panthers Tipped Off About Saints Wanting WR Terrance Marshall In The Draft

Speaking of which, does anyone think we stole Marshall from NO? WR2 was a big need for them and I wonder if they thought he’d fall into their laps and that we’d be taking OL. If we were thinking Marshall, 59 may have been the lowest we could go. The Saints did reach quite a bit for Werner and at that point only had 2 late 3rds.

If only someone smart realized that during the draft! 😉 I thought that based on the Werner reach. I figured the Saints didn’t think we’d take a WR with Moore, Anderson and Moore and didn’t even try to trade up in front of us. They thought Marshall would fall in their laps and then panicked. I have no doubt that when we traded down to 59, we did that knowing that was as far down as we could go and still get Marshall. It’s also why I believe we were willing to take Marshall first before Christensen. WR2 is a huge hole for NO and we couldn’t risk Marshall not falling more.

They also call the player before they draft them, so maybe someone from Marshall's camp tipped them off that the Saints had been on the phone. 

The funny thing is I don’t think you had to be a brain surgeon or even have a source to know that the Saints would absolutely have taken Marshall. WR was a huge need for them. To have a potential first round WR drop to them at 60? Of course they are taking him. I absolutely think they thought we wouldn’t take him because we already had a nice replacement for Samuel. The Werner pick sealed it for me. They can say he was their guy all along but he seemed like a panic pick. On NFL.com he was graded 125th. On his page of prospects only 1 guy (Eskridge who was also a bit of a reach) also went in the 2nd and there were 4 guys who went in the 7th or undrafted.

Trying to understand who gains by tipping the panthers off?

Probably someone in the saints staff that wants to work with Brady. The Saints did this to Hurney countless times.

And the drama still goes on in the land of the AInts. They just will not let it go.

"So Carolina, knowing our roster knew who we were targeting in the 1st and possibly 2nd. When I saw that they were in front of us, I knew Marshall wouldn't go past them. 
We've whipped some teams arses for years and have embarrassed people on Prime Time football. So you can imagine how they want to stick it to us and hope that we fall.
I hope Carolina doesn't win a single game this year."

I don't doubt that our staff got a call from someone.  I believe we wanted Christensen and Marshall.  The front office decided that the gamble to wait on Christensen and take Marshall was better than waiting to see if Marshall fell to our 3rd round pick.  The gamble paid off because we ended up with both. 

I heard many times before the draft that N.O. was interested in a CB and Horn was in that conversation.

Fortunately for us we had a need at CB and WR so while we got the upper hand I don't think we chose those players just to screw N.O.  It's more of a coincidence and we got great players plus we kept them from N.O.

Nice replacement for Samuel? Who? David Moore was never a real threat to be a replacement for Samuel. I knew we would take at least one receiver during this draft based upon the fact that we didn't have a legit replacement for Samuel. We not only drafted one, but two receivers that are more likely to be Samuel replacements than David Moore. He is depth and a sneaky WR4 red zone threat. The days of mediocrity at receiver are gone. Thank goodness!

The Bills have jumped us several times this same way in recent years. Yes, they had connections to our FO/team, and they know us well enough to know who we'd take.

Too bad, that's why they have Dion Dawkins and we're still looking for a LT.

New Orleans sucks and yes it is a little disturbing that we went after the same guys as them.  On the bright side their d bag fans have stopped trolling this board, finally.

New Orleans has been quite good for a while and has been drafting very well.  It's a little reassuring to know we went after the same guys.

Yep. Look at the Saints roster. They have Kamara, Thomas and JAGs. We know them well. It was obvious to me after we took Marshall and they reached for Werner that we sniped their guy. They would have loved Marshall to fall and probably didn’t think we’d veer from OL at 59. If we wanted both guys we had to take Marshall at 59. Then we waited as long as we thought we could and grabbed Christensen. We didn’t even need a call to tip us off.

Honestly, I just wish we started with Moton at LT. He’s way better of a pass blocker than Williams was but Ron was stubborn. I think we both would have had our LTs but I’m still really happy with our pick.

Just based on last five years Car, Atl and TB won NFC titles (SB for TB).  By that metric I put NO as the least successful team in the division.
