METAIRIE — Bill Polian, the man who built the Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts into Super Bowl teams, believes there are only a dozen or so prospects with true first-round value.

The New Orleans Saints pick at No. 15 after the draft begins at 7 p.m. Thursday, so a draft-night deal is not out of the question, general manager Mickey Loomis said on Tuesday.

"I think that most teams would say, and certainly we would say that we do have less than 32 guys graded as first-round picks," Loomis said at a press conference at the Saints' facility. "And we probably have 45 or 50 graded as second-round talent. So when you just talk about value and where you're selecting, I think that's probably what it means."
