ok, i don't really watch college ball, but did Frank Okam's play severely drop off the deep end or something?? I know in the vids of him preceding last season's draft,. He was looking pretty good for the middle of the line to be grading as a 4th?

All the DT's, LB's and CB's!!!


The draft if a crap shoot and whoever we draft (just like any other team) i'm gonna assume we drafted them for a reason, Unfortunatley we cant make the Saints FO draft who we want them to draft, we gotta just believe that they are picking these guys for a reason, whether we heard of them or not and regardless of 40 time...were on the outside looking in.

Cason, DRC and Talib, I think those 3 could really improve thier stock with good performances. I would also consider CB ast he Saints biggest need, so I am most interested in them for that reason.

I really wanna see how Dorsey and Ellis compare, I'm not sure why, I know its better to go by on field and combine shouldn't matter to much, but this is just a match up that interests me. I would love to have either in the black and gold, but it probably a pipe dream to think either would fall. But stranger things have happened.

But I think most of all, I wanna see how Vernon Gholston does. I think a good performance will soltify him as the number 1 pick. He looks to me alot like Shawn Merriman, and that is the ideal pass rush you would like if running a 3 - 4 (which Parcells loves) I just wanna see how he runs etc. I think he is the most interesting prospect in the draft. If he can run high 4.4's low 4.5's, I have a feeling he will throw up 225 at will many many times, he is gonna open some eyes. I wanna see how he does the most.
