Ballard for two guys that will contribute day one.    

By the end of today, Goodell will be reading the picks from his bed

Buckner is a freakin all-pro. Relax.

Look at what the Saints gave up:

 

I wonder what they are targeting here? Win now piece? Or QB? 

We gave up a forth rounder in the 2nd round to move up for an elite RB. could you imagine what this forum would have done if CB gave up a third?

And then we trade back 10 spots... did the Saints just snipe Baun from us?

I think we were trading back regardless. Ballard said he wanted more picks and we hadn't traded back yet. I just think the Saints really liked Zack Baun and  went to get their guy.

    • My hope would be a GM is blinded by the volume and the headlines rather than the absolute value. We've seen teams do that trade in the past, where it's bad value-wise but it looks good on paper. Now the question is - are the Jets or MIA this easily fooled? Probably not but yeah... it's a fun hypothetical. 
    • I mean... hopefully we are not trading up Najee Harris or Travis Etienne. Then for SURE I don't want anything to do with it. But if you can get Wilson or Fields? I'd do that any day. I think people are weirded out by the number of picks rather than by the value.    This whole Colts draft past R1 has worse value than an average additional 1st.  https://www.drafttek.com/nfl-trade-value-chart.asp   R2    Pick 54 - 360 pts R3    Pick 84 - 170 R4    Pick 117 - 60 R5    Pick 148 - 31 R6    Pick 180 - 18.2 R7    Pick  211 - 5.8   ----------------------------- The total value is 645, which is the equivalent to the 29th pick of the draft.    My solution here would be to take our future 1st and trade it for late 1st or early 2nd this year.... then trade down a bunch of times to replenish the volume of picks for this year. Seattle has done similar things in recent years when they didn't have tons of picks.   Example: Trade future 1st for no. 33...  Trade 33(580) for 50(400) and 81(185) Trade 50(400) for 58(320) and 100(100) => pick at 58 Trade 81(185) for 92(132) and 124(48) => pick at 92 Trade 100(100) for 107(80) and 169(22.6)  Trade 107(80) for 117(60) and 180(18.2) => pick at 117, pick at 124, pick at 169, pick at 180   So in essense for 21 and 2022 1st rounder you get... no.2 and your pick of a QB after Lawrence, 2nd rounder(58), 3d rounder(92), 2x 4th rounders(117 and 124) and 2x 6th rounders(169 and 180).    That's just an example of what can be done. 
    • I think your second sentence is the key....   We have so many pressing issues,  that we need all the assets we can get.....   QB, LT, DE, CB, WR, TE,  LB,  S,  depth OL    
    • He was asked and basically said he’s going to think about it and not make a decision in the moment.   What I do know is all year there have been rumblings that the Saints were going to move on from Brees after this year regardless.  I am sure for obvious reasons they would prefer for him to retire than go some place else and play.     So the story he was retiring came from Glazer and the question is who did Glazer get it from?  If it came from Drew’s camp then clearly that means it’s pretty solid info.  If it came from the Saints camp it could be they are wanting to push the narrative he’s done.  We will never know where it came from so all we can do is wait and see what Drew does.
    • If Brees is done, and it sounds like he might be, it’s the fans loss.  Drew was one of the good guys in the NFL that everyone can like even if you don’t like the team he played for.  I am glad he got a Super Bowl but too bad it had to be at the Colts expense.
