I wouldn't take any of the CB's in the top 15, except maybe Milliner but probably not him either. I'd take Vaccaro before any of them.

Yeah I'm not super hot on any of the CB's for the 1st round to be honest.

I think the best values are probably DL and then S for our draft position, followed by DE/OLB and OT. Fortunately we could take a player at any of those positions and be addressing need.

Vaccaro is a really nice player. I remember when they played against WVU, he gave Tavon Austin so many fits, when he wasn't on him Austin went wild

I'll gladly take Desmond Trufant at #15. 4.38 at 6'0" 190 and great work ethic/passion for the game.

i would too. him or rhodes i would be happy about. i think trufant has the better chance of being a great CB, but if Rhodes catches on with his size and measurables, he has a higher ceiling than trufant.

I think he is worth a 15 pick, and would love it if we go with him.

A sure first rounder after seeing his combine performance today. If Saints can trade down and still pick him up I would be happy. If they stay at #15 then OT, OLB or DB is the way to go based on BPA. Trufant is an NFL ready CB. Very impressive player...

He could go top 10 after his combine and senior bowl, maybe higher than Milliner.

I think if we trade down Rhodes would the best pick.

I would rather have Rhodes but if he is gone I would rather trade back and get at least another 3rd and pick him up later.

If he's a lockdown man corner, who would play for cheap for four years on a rookie deal, in effect keeping one side of the field clean for those years, why would 15 be too early?

I understand the grades and mocks and all of that, but if you look back on the shut down corners and had the draft to do all over again, do you think it wouldn't be worth it to draft them much earlier?

People were probably saying that drafting Revis top five in 2007 would have been too early. Not saying that Trufant will be Revis but do you see what I"m getting at?

ETA: If he's BPA, which he won't be, I'm sure he'd be the selection. One thing this front office has shown us again and again is that they fill their holes in free agency and draft BPA.
