Houston via New Jersey, New Orleans, Baton Rouge,
I'm just feeling it's more and more likely that Dorsey and Ellis are going to the Rams and da Raiduhs, neither lasting past the top 5. Even if one of them does last, the Bengals will grab the other unless we trade up with Baltimore the day of the draft to get them.
I've seen plenty of people put up scenarios where one or the other falls down to 10, but I do not think it's realistic. We'd better resign ourselves to seeing the Saints picking someone else (or trade up with the Ravens to get their DT). Assuming Ellis and Dorsey are long gone, I'd love it if the Saints could trade down a little, but I just don't know who would be interested in trading into the 10 spot, which means we'll probably have to stick with that spot and reach a little for a player who will be good, but we could have gotten later.

Then again, maybe I'm just trying to think "worst case scenario" so I'll end up being happy with what actually happens that day...

So there are at least 5 teams that are running a 3-4 scheme this year in the top 5.It looks good for us if our coaching staff thinks we need a DT.I somehow doubt this though I think wtih so many top defensive draft prospects I think that we are gonna end up with a Offensive BPA player available.I bet we end up with another receiver.
