Nowhere did I say I knew when he or any player is available but I like many who watch the draft watch with a open mindedness that the team has a vision and watching it play out is why the draft is so exciting to fans.I'm actually fine with what he said. If you watch games that a player we selected played at and don't like them then that's okay. What I don't like is people acting like they know he would've been available later on. It's ludicrous, you don't know that and stop pretending like you do.
Per Rappoport who has talked to scouts during the draft: Jabril Cox had recent shoulder surgery that is difficult to make a full recovery from. His draft stock dropped because of this.I won't pretend that I know better than the Saints organization. I don't. I'm happy they drafted a LB.
But to be honest I'm somewhat shocked. Werner? Jabril Cox and Baron Browning were on the board. In fact Jabril is still on the board. I really wanted Jabril Cox.
Just shows how little I know.
I was guilty of that. Loved the Anzalone pick and thought he’d be a stud for us. I was way off on that one.
That would mean the fans are in shock and that's not a valid excuse to me. Supposedly everyone on here loves Ireland but when we actually use his recommendations people flip out because it didn't fit their narrative. Unless you are a scout no one on here knows better than the people that are getting paid for it. I did say earlier that if you watch college ball and seen a certain player or even watch highlight films then you can disagree with a pick but to suggest that a player would've been available later is laughable to me.
We need him to be considerably better than Azalone.
Thanks for that info. I wasn't aware.Per Rappoport who has talked to scouts during the draft: Jabril Cox had recent shoulder surgery that is difficult to make a full recovery from. His draft stock dropped because of this.
I can see a less needy team picking him up today.
Turner is NOT a DT....he is a rotational DE like Hendrickson was nothing about a 6'6 270 player sounds like a DT he is a like Jordan and Davenport a DE who on passing downs can be in the "nascar" package and rush from the inside.
The Saints will draft a CB and interior DL but Turner was not drafted to play DT.
I wasn't saying you, it was a general you and I enjoyed the draft the past two days. And since when did someone need to ask me something in order to give my opinion?Nowhere did I say I knew when he or any player is available but I like many who watch the draft watch with a open mindedness that the team has a vision and watching it play out is why the draft is so exciting to fans.
Nobody asked you what you don't like, so get out your feeling and enjoy the process like everybody else......except for you apparently.
Oh, and here's your emoji
My opinion is that I trust our current front office. We have done a great job since Jeff Ireland has joined the organization.And what are you doing?! Armchair GM like everyone with an opinion, or you just don’t have an opinion?!
Pete Werner’s best pro comparison is Fred Warner from the 49ers. They’re very similar in almost every way... Werner edged-out Fred Warner in almost every athletic test, and the ones he didn’t beat him, they tied.Werner's RAS is head and shoulders above AA. AA came in at 8.03. Werner is 9.52. More importantly is the explosion grade, which the Saints really appear to be emphasizing. AA's explosion grade was Poor. Werner graded as elite in Explosion. These are the metrics the Saints care about right now.
