If we take Mingo, over Vaccaro and Patterson, I was seriously give up hope of Loomis + Payton ever landing the better stud left on the board in the first round.

Patterson should be the pick there followed by vaccaro then Mingo.

Dion Jordan 13 to the Bucs?? I'm not so sure he actually fits in with what they actually do lol.

15, 16, 17 should be interesting. Rams and Steelers both need a receiver. If they both covet the same guy, could be a potential trade down to 17. That's IF we don't go after one (Austin) -cough.

How? Vaccaro is tubucky jones 2.0. And Patterson is a one year star. The defense needs to keep being upgraded. Do you forget we're COMPLETELY switching schemes. This involves DIFFERENT types of players. Mingo is gonna be a pass rushing freaking, ala Alden smith. He's fast physical and mean.

In the 2009 draft we took Malcolm Jenkins over a kid by the name of Clay Matthews. I'm pretty sure Loomis and Payton remember that draft very well. If things play out similarly and both Vaccaro and Mingo are available I'm positive we'll take the pass rusher this time. It would be the best thing to do.

Some of the draft gurus on this board really need to get a grip on themselves. I realize you guys spend lots of time watching :gamefilm:, and having an opinion on or liking/disliking a player. And that's great. Everybody needs a hobby and that's as good a hobby as any. But realize it's just that, a hobby.

When you take it to the level of bashing an NFL front office about whether or not they take a certain player, you really have to try to get some perspective on the fact that not matter how much :gamefilm: you watch, you are still an amature getting paid to do something other than evaluate and coach NFL level talent and the fact that these guys get paid a lot of money to do just that.

Without the knowledge of what we look like after free agency, this seems a bit presumptuous. Vaccaro isn't a slam dunk (not sure any safety is at 15) and C. Patterson is getting stiff competition from T. Austin for #1 WR in this draft. However as stated above, we need to retool our defense and if one of the elite pass rushers (Mingo, Jones, Jordan and to some extent Ansah) are there, the pick is probably one of those four.

I don't think this is a fair assessment as Matthews is 3-4 rush backer and we were running a 4-3 at the time. Also, EVERY year someone misses on a pick and a guy below them hits a homerun. Can't let that change your strategy though, because you get into trouble when you let past mistakes dictate future choices.

My point was we've drafted a safety (technically cornerback) recently and are in dire need of a pass rush, which we've neglected for too long.

I think that was a need pick at the time. Plus Matthews is best fit in the OLB role of 3-4 rushing the passer. We were still in the 4-3, so I can't fault them too much there. Now, situations such as trading up for Ellis, trading back into the first for Ingram (with a plethora of running backs already on the roster and us not being a power run team), or even p rob at 32 is fair to wonder about. I know we aren't experts, but sometimes you have to wonder lol overall loomis and Payton have done a pretty good job in the personnel department, but they have their fair share of first round whiffs (too early to call Ingram a bust)

We've needed a pass rush for a LONG time now and we've continued to pass it over in the draft. It's time to address it!

The LSU Hacks are out in full force
Normally I would agree with you and I'm an LSU fan. But to call it crazy and homerism to think the Saints should take a consensus top 20 talent at a position of extreme need is well crazy and simply LSU hate.

I have no idea if Mingo can develop into a great player of if someone is that will be available is better, but I know that we need a pass rusher and that Mingo has been listed as one of the top pass rushers in college football for three years and has been considered a top 10 pick for two years. So, barring Jarvis Jones, who is apparently more polished and NFL ready falling to us, I can't see how taking Mingo is crazy or just LSU homerism.
