Needless to say, with all the talk and hype that has gone into this year's draft I am left unimpressed with what the Saints have done so far. In my opinion there were so many other solid players the Saints could have went with the 28th pick in the fisrst round. And they go Peyton Turner??? The guy's tape is impressive but he seems like a carbon copy on Marcus Davenport. At least they didn't trade up to get him and I hope Turner works out but I have my doubts. Then the 2nd pick...Pete Werner...I'm not saying it was an awful pick but I would've went in another direction. The 3rd pick is actually one I do like out of them all..Paulson Adebo...I think he can prove to be a strong player when it's all said and done. Ian Book??? that's a meh pick for me...why go QB there when you have more pressing needs at WR? We always say in Loomis we trust but so far I may need to be reminded of that more often.

There is your problem. You are left feeling a certain way because of the hype. Hype doesn't win football games.

IS this a good draft or a bad draft? Nobody really knows until these guys play a couple of NFL downs. Like it or not, that is the stone-cold truth. Any "expert" that tells you otherwise isn't really an expert.

Not a fan of our 1st round pick or our 4th round pick. Thought there were better players available when we picked at both of those spots.

I’m good with the Werner and Adebo picks. Both of those guys have position versatility and have the skills to start for this team both long and short term.

So I’m luke warm so far. If we can get a sleeper WR later today - I’ll feel a little better about it

and the hype is just some aggregate consensus mostly from people without deep knowledge of any of the teams
it's an average
and why would we want our team to be average?

The need at WR is overstated among the fanbase. We have a top 3 WR on the team. Most teams don't have that. After him, we have two guys that are #3 WR level currently, but at least one of them has the chance to step into a 600-700 yard receiver at the #2 spot. We also have Harris, who is a wildcard and was really becoming a big WR threat. Oh, and a RB who's the best in the league at lining up wide.

We aren't great at WR, but it's not a glaring hole.

I agree 100%
But I fear saying anything because I will be called names and degraded and called a loser that never watches the saints that's not even a fan and I dont know sheet....
Oh sorry....off on a lil tangent....lol
See with me I could care less what someone else thinks or if they have to stoop to calling me names. Doesn't bother me at the least. At the end of the day I'm going to speak my truth and keep it moving. If Payton and Loomis always made the right decisions then chances are they'd have more than one Super Bowl ring......just saying.

We have lost late season and playoff games literally due to a few plays where no WR could get separation and MT was being doubled. Or when they did get open, they drop or fumble. The need for a 2nd WR opposite Thomas is not overstated - It’s glaring at the biggest moments in the most important games.
