I'm sure after the title game Watson stock has gone up but I don't think he's 11th overall good. I would like to have him as I think he's athletic and somewhat intelligent on his football savy. Other needs are huge for the Saints at this point to get him first round.
And the QB does not have to be watson (although, he is the only one you can justify at that spot) but i would not be mad if we took one.
I just dont ever see us having the type of defense that will win us games. Sure, we can get it to the point where it wont be a liability though. You need a QB. The Alex Smiths of the world just wont do.
Im fine with rolling with Brees for 3 more years....but the Saints dont seem to want to give him a long term deal.
Given Brees' old contract and the cap hit, it was hard to extend him. I could see him getting a 2 year extension this offseason.
After Grayson I am gunshy about a QB in the draft. They didn't scout him well. DE and LB have to be the priorities. DT would be 3rd.
I get that
But we got lucky with Brees in FA. That aint happening again.
Also, Grayson was drafted as a project. People are going to fight it but to have a QB we have to invest early at some point. Now, if Watson is not your guy i get it and we have a couple of years to get one.
Maybe we wait untill brees is retired and bottom out. Personally i want out next guy to sit a year or 2 and learn from Drew. Either way we will have to take one in round 1 at some point. A round 3 longshot will not cut it and unless a team has 2 qbs and 1 blows his shoulder out we aint getting one in FA worth a damn.
