Ask him a ton of questions that get to which Georgia defensive players are worth drafting.

Grantham intrigues me, but I can't get over the fact that his defense underachieved at Georgia in spite of its superior talent. That worries me...

He might also help Payton understand it better since Payton's said before that the pistol has been keeping him up at nights.
Agreed but how many teams run it? I'm not sure on Grantham or Ryan at this point but is it that important to pick him over Ryan? I'm thinking "must be able to work with the talent we have" guy at this point. Not dissin ya just askin.

I rather the DC from Georgia. Rob Ryan havent had a top 10 defense since he been coaching. Word out of Dallas is that his scheme is to complex and players just wasnt getting it. Instead of your top pass rusher (WARE) going after the QB he was dropping back in pass coverage and Lbers one on one with slot WR. Ryan would be a bad choice for Saints. Go with the youngster in Grantham. He will bring a new vibe to Saints defense. Tired of these old coaches man. We need someone who can come in and vibe with his players and they want to play for him. NO to ROB RYAN!!!

Dallas Cowboys defense was very much healthy and the Seahawks and Bears put points on Rob Defense. Ryan is not the answer in NO...We will be cursing at the TV and players again. Bring a new attitude in and start fresh....

I still wish that we could get Tomsula as I believe he is the most proven. That probably won't be the case since Harbaugh is a walking bag of crabs, so hopefully whoever Coach Payton picks helps to turn us back into a threat.

Just jumping in. We may see some Pistol formation (and read-option to a lesser extent) from the following in 2013:

Carolina (x2)
Tampa Bay (x2)
Seattle
San Francisco
Miami

Almost half the schedule. (Full disclosure: I'm for Grantham.)

Actually Ryan is only 3 or 4 years older than Grantham, but for some reason he looks like a hobo on speed!
