Assuming the Saints stay put at the No. 10 spot and don’t trade up or down, they will be making one selection in the first round. One rookie-fresh first-round player, however, will not be all New Orleans gets on its roster next season.
I’m talking, of course, about wide receiver Robert Meachem.
Plenty of people have already written Meachem off as a bust. I understand that point of view completely. If a guy is drafted in the first round, he should crack the lineup at least once in his rookie season, no questions asked (unless he’s a quarterback who’s purposely sitting a year to learn the NFL game).
In Meachem’s case, he didn’t even crack the active roster. Full Story – MVNhttp://mvn.com/nfl-saints/2008/04/13/saints-will-add-two-rookie-first-rounders-this-season/
