Draft<o></o>
<o></o>
*Trade: The New Orleans Saints trade 1[10] to the Dallas Cowboys for 1[22] and 1[28], the Cowboys select RB Darren McFadden [<st1:state><st1>Arkansas</st1></st1:state>]
<o></o>
1[22] DT Patrick Sims [<st1:city><st1>Auburn</st1></st1:city>]
<o></o>
Sims is a 6’3” 320lbs. DT that runs a 4.8 [40] and has been applauded by his coaches for his work ethic. He is the type of explosive run stuffer that the Saints defense needs.
<o></o>
<o>

</o> 1[28] LB Curtis Lofton [OU]
<o></o>
Lofton is a 6’ 240lbs. heat seeking missile for the middle of the defense.
<o></o>
<o>
</o> <o></o>
2[42] OT Gosder Cherilus [<st1><st1:placename>Boston</st1:placename> <st1:placetype>College</st1:placetype></st1>]
<o></o>
I read in profootball weekly that the Saints are looking to upgrade at RT and the 6’7” 320lbs. Cherilus has the mean streak to fuel the running game.
<o></o>
<o></o>
<o></o>
3[74] CB Charles Godfrey [I<st1:state><st1>owa</st1></st1:state>]
<o></o>
With the signing of Samuel the need at CB is not huge, but Godfrey has elite physical tools and may be able to play FS as well.
<o></o>
4. LB Wesley Woodyard [<st1:state><st1>Kentucky</st1></st1:state>]
<o></o>
Woodyard had a great senior bowl and looks like a real prospect at weakside LB.
<o></o>
<o>
</o><o></o>
5. RB Jacob Hester [LSU]
<o></o>
Deuce coming off of a second ACL injury leaves a need at power back.
<o></o>
<o>

</o> 6. S Dominiqe Barber [<st1:state><st1>Minnesota</st1></st1:state>]
<o></o>
Barber is a hard hitting FS that has great size 6’1” 210lbs.
<o></o>
<o></o>
<o></o>
7. TE Cole Bennett [<st1:city><st1>Auburn</st1></st1:city>]<o></o>
<o></o>
Bennett is a 6’4” 263lbs. blocker that has the type of work ethic to become a starter.<o>
