I love the Hughes, Stuckey, and Dixon picks.

Mike Neal in the 2nd? Don't see that happening.

Don't know about Stuckey,but somewhere in there's got to be a OLB. I'd be all for the Saints trading up for another 3rd/4th to pick and picking OLB

Yeah I was confused as well at Mike Neal going in the 2nd. But from what I know, Stuckey is more of a SS. Anyone watch Stuckey enough to know if he can play FS? No LBs in the first 4 rounds? I seriously doubt that Also, replace Neal with Linval. If that draft did happen, I wouldn't be too upset, but I think we could do better.

Jerry Hugghes is primarily a OLB. Kiper has him projected as DE with the Saints, but with GW this guy's flexibility would be a definite asset. As for second round, the Saints could have a couple of picks before #64, in which case I see Linval Joseph in the second round.

I though Hughes was a 3-4 OLB & 4-3 DE?

i agree i think that is a little high for Neal. i'd like to see where he has Cam Thomas going. also i was told the Saints will most likely draft a DB in the First 4 rounds.
