He would be the best linebacker in this years draft, next year he could go in the top five. If we draft him lets hope its because we traded to move up.

If we don't fix our problems at linebacker this year, we can look forward to another top 10 pick in 2009......................

Thanks

Rey Maualuga has always been a beast.
One of my favorite LBers

Why not draft good a LB this draft AND draft him next year. We need to make our defense the strongest part of our team... (of course this guy will probably be sought after, so it's not likely we will have a shot at him after winning the superbowl... He'll be gone by the 32nd pick)

If we don't draft a linebacker this year.....it will be just like any other year, were we pick one up in rounds 5-7 and say "we addressed are need for depth at linebacker"

:hihi: yes I like your thinking, let's draft multiple stud LB's, can anyone say Dome Patrol...:ezbill:

As far as Maulaugua goes, I've been high on those guy for a couple years, he is an absolute stud and a future Pro Bowler for sure.I feel he'll be a better pro then Rivers. I'd go nuts if we managed to get him but like the post above stated, I'm almost certain that he'll be a top 10 pick and hopefully we're not picking that far up

Need to fix LB, plus CB and FS.

Fujita is the only starting LB we have. Simmons could start at WLB over Shanle, but we still need youth there... Other than that, we're very shallow at LB.

David is a nickle back. He can't and never will be a starting CB with a team that plays as much man coverage as the Saints do.

Bullocks is a back up at FS. Both KK and Chris Reid outplayed him when given the chance. Bullocks biggest knock is INCONSISTENCY.

DT also needs an infusion of youth... JMHO

It isn't going to happen this year. Simoneau is gone and Simmons may be cut for cap reasons. We will be drafting a LB in rounds 1-3. You can count on it.
