  1. All valid points, and if he fell that far I could certainly see teams interested in moving up for him. I have no problem moving back in this or pretty much any draft. On the flip side of that if a trade partner couldn't be found I might have a real problem letting Cook fall right into the Saints lap. I think he's far more dynamic than Ingram, and they might surprise everyone and reload their offense. Imagine if they pick OJ Howard with their first pick and Cook with pick 32. That would leave them with the rest of their draft to address defense, and their offense would be stacked for years. Yes Brees is getting long in the tooth but he can play another 3 years anyway. I never said anything about trading Freeman let him play out his contract as Cook learns the NFL ropes. If he signs elsewhere after the season we net a 3rd or 4th round comp pick. Its all hypothetical anyway. I just wish the draft would get here already.
  2. You do realize that Michael Bennett was an UDFA coming out of college. If he was Bennett we could sign him after the draft and develop him.
  3. It doesn't matter to me if Cook is a huge upgrade, as long as he's an equivalent replacement. At some point we're going to start losing some of these players, there's no way we can pay them all, and RB is one of the easier positions to fill. I like Freeman, and would like him to stay. Depending on how much it will cost to resign him.
  4. 1. I never said Fanspeak was realistic ..... it's an entertaining time waster. 2. I only posted this to ask for opinions. If Cook is still on the board what do you do. Yes we have Freeman and Coleman, but Freeman is on the last year of his deal or we'll have to sign him to a big money contract.
  5. Hey guys I just had to get some opinions. I was checking out Fanspeak with the most updated draft boards. It gets to our pick in the first round and Dalvin Cook is still on the board. In my opinion he's to good a talent to pass up, so I ask for everyone's opinion here. If we're sitting on the clock and Dalvin Cook is still on the board what do you do ?? I listed the entire draft below, and if it fell like that I would have NO regrets.... 31: R1P31 RB DALVIN COOK FLORIDA STATE 63: R2P31 G DAN FEENEY INDIANA 95: R3P31 EDGE JORDAN WILLIS KANSAS STATE 136: R4P29 S RAYSHAWN JENKINS MIAMI 174: R5P30 LB JALEN REEVES-MAYBIN TENNESSEE 249: R7P31 DL D.J. JONES OLE MISS
  6. Except the word is the Giants are really interested in Willis and they pick at 23. So if we move up for Willis it's to get ahead of the Giants.
  7. I'm sorry I've read this same ridiculous post many times about cutting Levitre next year. It makes no sense. His contract next year is in line with a mid tier OG. Guess what, Levitre is a mid tier OG. He'll be 31 at the start of this season which means he has about 4 - 5 years left to play from right now. We could easily restructure his contract next year adding an additional 3 seasons. We can continue to draft OL that fit our scheme in the later rounds.
  8. Just remember TV adds 10 pounds ...
  9. I'm with you on DJ Jones, I don't know enough about Kai to give an opinion. I'll definitely be checking him out though. I think NFL execs are much higher on Jones than the media "experts" would lead you to believe. I'd love to have him in Atlanta as part of our rotation.
  10. I would absolutely bring him in at the right price. He's still got a few years that he can be productive. I trust Quinn, Bryant and the brotherhood to keep him motivated. He was good in Houston, and good in Buffalo until Buddy Ryan showed up. I wouldn't pay him a ton of money and I wouldn't bring him in until after the draft depending on who we select.
  11. I think the Saints should waste draft picks and cap money on Sherman. They need him far more than we do.
  12. The reality is if that's the guy Quinn wants at 31, I'll roll with it and defer to his superior evaluation skills.
  13. I'm going to say NO, I hate the picks of every team in our division. Every rival gets a **** good player and we get a 2nd round talent in the first.
  14. QB other than that I can make an argument for any position based on round and value.
