At the beggining it was clear that New Orleans was gonna draft a QB in the draft but now with the signing of Drew Brees, what does everybody think they will do with the pick, Trade down?

They should do what the Chargers did and draft Leinert or Cutler just to screw with him.. LOL :sidelol:

Trade the pick to the Jets, take Mario Williams. The Jets will get Leinart.

dont have a link, but i read somewhere saints GM said just because they signed brees doesnt mean they wont take a qb with the #2 pick. probably just posturing to try and keep the value of the pick in a trade, but considering brees is due a 12 mil roster bonus next march, it could end up being a 1 year deal for drew where they are looking to start lienart next year.

I dont know that they wont still take a QB. They may need insuracne in case Brees shoulder is worse than he says. That is why the contract is really only 1 year gaurenteed.

trade down, gain extra picks, the trade has to remain in the top 10 but take a.j hawk, mario williams, d'brick or michael huff

:goof: I know this sounds crazy, but I hope they do trade their pick to the Jets. Why? Because the Jets will probably get one of the top 3 QB's anyway and if they trade up to get who they want, they'll probably have to give up their 2nd and possibly more picks. They get a QB who MIGHT be decent in a couple years, but who's going to block and tackle for them with no other decent talent coming from the draft. They need way more than a QB and if they waste other draft picks just to move up a couple spots, well I'm all for that! :lol:

Maybe.

A lot of people are now thinking the Jets should/will trade up. Maybe if they were lower in the draft, but if they sit pretty at #4 they can still get a franchise QB. NO will not draft a QB, so either Vince or Matt has to fall to 4, it's that simple. They'll get their QB if they just sit back.

They have way to many wholes to fill to be tossing things around to move up 2 picks. They are safe where they are. Only move I can see is them going the distant to trade with the Texans, and it won't be for a QB.

If they were smart they would trade down and stockpile a couple of picks. But lets be honest they haven't been the smartest franchise. I say they trade the pick though and get D'Brick because the Jets and Titans will be fighting for Leinart. They should come out well in this ordeal.

I got an idea, we trade away our whole draft to the Saints for the #2 overall pick and we select Mario Williams. Ok that was a bit of a push but I wouldnt mind it.

I would not be surprised if they still take Leinart at #2. The contract they gave Brees is essentially voidable after 1 year. Now if Brees plays poorly or his shoulder does not repair as expected then they still have a plan B to fall back on.
If everything is ok with Brees they can convert that $12M roster bonus to a signing bonus (and spread the cap hit over 5 years) and either look to trade Brees or Leinart next season.

I dont understand the mario williams talk for the saints...they lost HOward but they still have Grant and Will Smith at de. They have Gandy at LT whos seen many a moon wouldnt DBrick be the best pick?

I dont understand the mario williams talk for the saints...they lost HOward but they still have Grant and Will Smith at de.They won't take Mario. They will go after D'Brick if anything. You are right they are set at DE. Plus their is another DE in the draft that looks to be forgotten and thats Kiwi from BC who would have been the top defensive pick last year had he not returned.

My guess as a Saints fan would be they'd love to trade down just a few spots but still be the position to get Ferguson. The Jets look like a prime canidate but they are trying to get a vet QB. So the Saints may have to trade down further and miss out on Ferguson but possibly grab A.J. Hawk. After signing Brees I think there's zero chance we draft Leinart. The Saints have quite few holes to fill (mostly on Defense) and the Saints really need to trade down out of #2 to stockpile picks. There is also zero chance that the Saints stick at #2 and pick Mario Williams. We do need help defensively but not at DE (like someone already said we have Will Smith, Charles Grant, Tony Bryant, Willie Whitehead at DE. The strength of our Defense).

Linart is going to be a failure in the NFL. we all know that. Great QBs don't come from USC. He will fall and then won'y know how to get up.

Ideally they'd probably like to trade down with the Jests or Raaaaiiiderrsss and acquire extra picks...whether someone will or not is going to be right up to when they are on the clock. I wouldn't be shocked at all if they took a QB anyways, given Brees potentially tenuous situation...They can always trade him away next year if Brees proves to be healthy...It certainly won't make Brees too happy, but that's life...

Saints should trade down even if they have to take slightly less value and still get Ferguson or Mario at #3/#4. Saints don't have a 3rd round pick and need a C & LB. At work w/o one of those draft value charts, but think equal value would be a Titan's 2nd or the Jets 2nd & 3rd.

D'Brick won't be available IMO. I think they'll either trade down or take Mario.
