The NFL draft is next Saturday morning and I can’t wait. I’m completely obsessed with it every year and with my team (N.O. Saints) picking second its even worse.
The Texans who have the number one pick in my opinion should trade down with that pick and move down to acquire more picks. I know that it may sound silly to trade out of the number one pick and have the opportunity to draft Reggie Bush but the Texans need a lot of help in a lot of areas. They have so many needs all over the field that taking one elite player won’t help them as much as getting a bunch of solid contributors.
The Saints with the second pick should take D'Brickashaw Ferguson, offensive tackle from Virginia. Last year the Saints used their first round pick on a offensive right tackle and by taking Ferguson to play left tackle they would have two bookend tackles who would solidify the offensive line for years to come. The Saints signed Drew Breese in the off season and they need someone to protect his blind side and Ferguson would be the man to do it. A lot of people have the Saints taking Mario Williams a defensive end with that pick but I just don’t see it happening. They already have two first round draft picks playing on the defensive line and I don’t think Williams has the size or speed to be dominate like everyone says he’ll be.
