2011 NFL Draft Results: What Does New Orleans Draft Say About Team's Intentions?
2011 NFL Draft: Saints aim solely at winning right now:
When the New Orleans Saints made a trade for the 28th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft that cost a 2011 second-round pick and a 2012 first-round pick to select Mark Ingram, it was made very clear that the Saints see the Drew Brees window closing.
Ralph Malbrough of wwltv.com thinks it was the right thing to do. After all, having a franchise quarterback like Brees who is extremely capable of winning Super Bowls is a privilege to not take for granted. Stacking the roster with talent around that player should be a priority to capitalize.
Adding Ingram adds security to a running back depth chart that struggled with injury last season. Sure, the Saints could have held on to their second-round pick and their 2012 first-round pick to continue building their roster to ensure sustained prosperity.
However, the team decided to get as talented as possible right now to get over the hump. The Saints had one of the most dynamic offenses in the league last season but struggled because of a lagging running game.
