Saints Draft predictions for 2008<O:p></O:p>
<O:p></O:p>
Trade Predictions:<O:p></O:p>
<O:p></O:p>
Saints trade there 1st round pick (10 overall) 1300 pts and 4th round pick (106 overall) 100 pts to Dallas for there 1st round (22 overall) 780 pts and there 1<SUP>st</SUP> round (30 overall) 620 pts

Predict Dallas will use that pick to take wide receiver Desean Jackson California. Saints in turn trade that 1st round (30 overall) 620 pts to the Jets for the right to linebacker Johnathan Vilma who is rumored to be traded. Saints will get the Jets 2nd round (38 overall) 520 pts as compensation. So Saints may get Vilma for 100 pts, For the Cost of a 4th rd pick. <O:p></O:p>
<O:p></O:p>
Saints now want to recover that 4th round pick back.<O:p></O:p>
<O:p></O:p>
Saints trade down there 2nd round pick (42 overall) 480 pts with Philly or the Redskins for there 2nd Round pick (51 overall) 390 pts. Saints are compensated with 2nd round pick (51+/- overall) 390 pts and 4th Round (115 overall) 64 pts.<O:p></O:p>

That would be crazy

If the saints can pull off that much wheeling and dealing and end up with Vilma I would be all for it.

Also, I thought the rumor going around is that if the Cards can't hammer out a deal they planned on slapping Dansby with the franchise tag. For our D's sake I hope they can pull that off and end up with Dansby, Vilma, and Fujita that would be a solid LB core.

(Seems like you put a lot of time into that as well thanks for that)

I would take Vilma for one season and all that trading just to see it happen like that.

Cowboys want Kenny Phillips, they've made that clear already. Not DeSean Jackson

Well Derek Pegues is returning to Mississippi State for his senior year, now DE/LB Titus Brown from Mississippi State would be a nice pickup late.

Pegues will be drafted mid to early rounds next year if he has another year like he did this year.

Good job. I see you did your homework. That would be nice, but I am not sure about Vilma either. Goff seems to be projected higher, as does Quentin Groves. We'll see...

I like the creativity, but I'm just scared that Vilma won't be the same with that injury.....How many times can we roll the dice on players that are injured....Brees worked, and we'll see with Deuce.

I like Vilma, but why is everyone so excited about us trading for him. We should just go after a man like Karlos Dansby, and be done with it. Vilma has major health concerns... We might as well go after Al Wilson, he'll be cheaper and was recently cleared to play.

tHey were concerned about his health. Obviously, it worked out for him ans Dallas. Word here in Dallas is that Jerry will sign Hamlin to a longer term deal, so I doubt he will be available.

I was done reading when I saw trade a first rounder to the Jets for the rights of Vilma. I don't care if they are sending back a second. There is no way you trade anything higher than a fourth rounder for Vilma who is coming off a major injury that some believe is chronic and could further have an effect on his career.

Yeah really..

I don't see why anyone in the world would give up that much for a HUGE question mark - it just doesn't make sense.
