    With such a rich CB talent pool available it makes no sense why we didnt draft a LB like Foster first and a CB at the 32nd pick.

    It was disheartening when Reuben Foster went 31st.

    Lattimore should be a lock down corner quickly if he can stay healthy. Personally I would have picked Jonathon Allen with the 11th pick. Saints have lots of defensive needs but it all starts with the pass rush at the snap of the football. At #32 there were options that slipped through Loomis hands. If you really want Foster trade up a few spots to make sure he will still be on the board. When Foster fell to the 49ers Loomis panicked and jumped for the first name he could think of. Still could have gotten either a very good corner or linebacker at that spot. I would have gone corner and still gotten a good LB in the second round with pick 42.

    Moving up to pick 67 for a running back makes no sense at all. Still some very good DB' s and LB' s out there.

    Hopefully, Lattimore will not be the next Donte Stallworth "Mr. Hamstring"

    Tiny Tim the RB pick at 67 has to be the worst pick yet. Trading up for this guy?????

    I hope the free agents pan out. Looks like a very solid group.

    Lots of WR' s being taken in round 4. Still no Malachi Dupree or Travin Dural. Malachi should have stuck around to play a season in Air Canada or he might end up playing in Canada.

    Broncos drafters a player with a name appropriate to his position, a tight end named Jake Butt.

    If I was Mickey Loomis.....Let me rephrase that. If I was Mickey Loomis I would be an idiot. Malachi Dupre is thus far still undrafted into the 5th round. Saints have the 12th pick or round 6, the 196th overall. If Dupre falls that far it would be well worth the pick to take him. Underutilized in Les Miles Flintstones offense Dupre never was able to develop his immense talent or even get into any kind of rhythm or synchronization with the QB. With the way Brees spreads the oblate spheroid around Malachi would quite possibly finally come into his own. Could be a cog in the 2017 offense.

    I think tiny tim weighs about 215.

    He's soft I think he's gonna be a bust.

    Godchaux gone to play with Jarvis in the sunshine state. 5th round malachi should be gone soon.
