not overly excited about any tackles in this draft......itd be better to find one on the FA market......levi jones is pretty solid and would make a good short term answer at LT

Brown will be back next year tho and we wont need to waste a draft pick on a position that is already filled

Brown is likely to be back next year and there will be no need to draft a LT in the 1st round to replace Bushrod.

Unless injury concerns over Brown and Bushrod get worse, I do not expect us to go OT in the 1st round next year, though I never complain when we use top picks on offensive linemen, and I won't do so next year if that happens again.

I expect we will be looking defense again, probably a defensive lineman or a pass rushing specialist at outside linebacker.

Most athletic OLB on the board to take Fujita's spot. We have done very well improving our secondary speed, depth and overall quality. Time to address the OLB spot in the 1st rd.

Ciron Black has done nothing to impress me yet this year. He looked really good last season though. He's top notch in the locker room and off the field, but he needs to get ****** for on the field for the rest of the season. He's been getting beat by inferior talent so far.

I think they will go BPA and hope that it also fills a need. Just like they do every. single. year.

No need to take a LT that early on. Brown's injury insures that we should be able to resign him for a lot cheaper than if he played this year and I haven't been to disappointed with Bushrod's play. He's been questionable at times but I expect a full season of playing should improve him.

I think we'll go BPA at DE, OLB, or NT.

What's wrong with Bushrod? And he'll come a lot cheaper than Brown, whose contract comes up for renewal next year...

when it comes to protecting the best QB in the league you are worried about the price of one of the best tackles in the league?

Brown deserves whatever he asks for and its not likely we let him go without exhausting every possible contract offer....Brown will be a saint for as long as drew is here

I'm with St.Jacques. The game is won and lost on the O-Line in my opinion. I never complain when we take an offensive lineman in the early rounds. But if not there, then another pass rush specialist.

Bushrod will be a Restricted FA next year and unless something happens with the CBA so will Brown. I would guess that unless Loomis gets Brown or Bushrod a new deal done before the end of the season that Brown will be tendered the at a first and third, and Bushrod if he continues play play well will get a 1st.

Edit: I just realized Strief will be Restricted again if they don't get a new CBA also.

I can see the Saints trying to trade the rights to Brown for a 2nd and maybe a project DT or Tackle. I'm sure there are teams that would be willing to take him and try and work out a long term agreement or just franchise his ***.
