Saints give:
130, 169, 203, 244
Points: 74.6

Vikings give:
105
Points: 84

I know the gut reaction is negative to the trade...a mini Ricky Williams situation...but we again won the trade. We won by 9.4 points, or the equivalent of pick 202, one before our previously held sixth rounder.

Personally I really don't care too much about late draft guys. We tend to cut a few of them on cut down day anyway. If that's the best guy the rest of the way,, then I have no problem with that.

That 7th rounder obtained in the Cleveland trade paid dividends here.

If we had 103, woudn't we had taken him at 103, instead of trading (back?) for him, which is what it looks like, based on what you just posted?

Didn’t we cut guys last year that were drafted?
I like the move and think we should do this more.

the chances you having a great player in the late rounds is extremely slim. Unless you are really high on someone late rounds then I get it

Good perspective. I just don’t see the value in this guy. I really hope Payton is right about him.

I’m a fan of getting good players as opposed to getting quantity and this kid could be good. I just was hoping for gandy

HIGHWAY ROBBERY!!!! Look at 2 years ago when we cut Leonard, Jamerson, Moore, and Scott cause we just didn't have room for them. We didn't have room for all these picks this year either.

So are we done drafting this off season? Now lets get a solid veteran or two
You never know if we're done drafting with Payton. Could still trade future picks or players or both. I hope we are done and just focus on the UDFA that slip through the cracks.
