I would be more then ok if the saints wanted to spend on Hightower that guy is a monster. Fairly and Shead at 16 is a lot of money but they do get the dirty work done. That would only work if they do get Foster and not Hightower. The DB's are deep in this draft and the Saints definitely need to grab one or two.
Did you watch the DB's yesterday? Peppers is all muscle dude looks like a super hero. Adams ran a 4.5 but I can live with that. The Obi kid really impressed me.
Meeting with Mixon is interesting. I like McCaffrey in the Saints system the more I think of him as a Sproles type or slot WR as opposed to an every down RB. Mixon is no doubt first round talent and could be a steal later in the draft. I would take a chance on him.
The TE class for this draft is pretty deep. I wouldn't hate the Saints picking up at TE, since I figure this is Fleener's last season unless he blows up. Hooman is a great blocker, but weak in the passing game. I don't have high hopes for Hill.
I haven't really looked at the TE in this draft. If Fleener could be respectable the Saints would have a excellent corp of offensive options. If not traded they would have Cooks, Thomas, Snead, Ginn, and Coleman that's a solid group. I still like the idea of Mixon but that's me being offensive greedy. Ingram had a solid season minus his fumble and attitude problems he had for a few games. Hightower is a legit backup and I would like to see what they have in Lasco. If Ingram was to go down for a while It wouldn't be the best of situations.
I still think the Saints go pass rusher then DB. In the third if Mixon is there I would be ok with taking him but I highly doubt he's there. If he's gone I stay defense in the third.
