Jarvis Jones to the Saints?

Full Story –Houma Today.Com

The NFL draft is far from an exact science.
Years ago former San Francisco 49ers coach Bill Walsh told me that the draft was “no more than an educated guess on the type player or players you wanted on a football team.”

Walsh added that the one common denominator virtually every top NFL player has is that he was a very productive college player, but some teams look for potential and forget about what some players accomplished at the college level.

“If you look at our core players from those championship teams, it was Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Charles Haley, Bill Romanowski, Pierce Holt, Michael Carter, John Taylor, Harris Barton, Steve Young and a host of others, and every one of them were very productive college players,” Walsh said. “Their transition to the pro game was rather smooth. Too many teams today fall in love with potential and forget about production. There is a certain degree of potential and if that player has reached it at the college level ... to a great degree most of the best players in this league were outstanding college players and not just for one season. ”
