Always faithful welcoming our two of its just sports here at WW LI MF and in Debian well dot com what a great weekend and a Crescent City. And talks for the cause. I was. Crawfish judge set a saint Clement of Rome. So always had a good weekend and every project area. Crawford took off those folks there seek an enrollment to about 45 years over there. In a great festival law clerk took off each and every each year around this time and I've out. And a camping enough that was good stuff there are some people out there that came in messed up the crawfish and there are some that can. Not a fan of the oranges and crawfish by the way him ever judging contest that you might mean to you portal oranges and it where overrides that dates anecdotally. Overwhelms the crawfish. An aggregate high marks from me that's the site. Talking seats in mock draft this our organ in the Sean Payton. In a few moments but my mock draft who was released earlier in the week Bobby bears got his up on line for yet that beat Lola Thompson's. The LB about late in the website update unit. I forgot Google account and argue app so many ways you practice. You can actually leave us a message on the app and it sent to. Kind of a mass email 1:1 a central location email we can play if it's it's a good. Voicemail message so a lot of ways to interact and got the new website it's nice streamlined for your man David Villa common. It's awesome and were were big but our mock draft rights of Cleveland Browns of one. That's an easy pick right. The lights have always miles cared that texting them. Now at San Cisco I understand in my mock draft I can't manipulate the port will pit. Mr. misty. The quarterback UNC that's going to be high LD child on it then now that we're ultimately there Solomon Thomas that's been out of Stanford third does Chicago Bears. Jacksonville taken Ryan rent check off a tackle from Wisconsin's Jonathan Allen Beilein and Alabama goes from five to Tennessee Titans have all items the first tiger off the board. State the Al jealous you going to New York Jets the Los Angeles charges that still weird to say. Only Coker seeking out of Ohio State going seventh overall the Panthers at eight taking Rubin Foster. Linebacker from Alabama here's why I I mean it's election audit had when afford it there. With the eight selection but look he cleaves banked up he's got accustomed to answer and Carolina's give knoller with Thomas Davis got a linebacker corps polite not. Why not add Rubin Foster. If you're if you're concerned about Luke the Luke Heatley who he draws favorable comparisons to. Marvin Lewis insists that it giggles at 98 draft letter format heat Jeremy you'll pay tag team. Eight tiger backfield celeb for echoing through the jungle Cincinnati deals with the ninth overall pick the Buffalo Bills. Well the playoff drought the 1999. Approaching. Eighteen years now. Yeah. Good luck they're taken by receiver Corey Davis from a western Michigan at ten in the world seats Christian McCaffrey Rebecca Stanford. Now to be more expansive it and his explanation with the saints. It's safe to say pass structures the need of the offseason 32 is improve their defense it is you know that's the pickets for does this seem though. Seats picked. A player that will make an already explosive offense or explosive. I don't agree with the pick out Emma Thompson in my tenure saying ho Lee at 88 need to display announcing it wouldn't surprise me. I understand like Sean Payton has seen to be tempted he's dynamic. He could finally provided the seats that Darren Sproles. Type player and that Joker the play the Jew who rule that office I could see this if you watched Christian McCaffery. In his comp line and he couldn't tell you as a wide receiver a running back when he was running he's partial I think the Christian McCaffrey's actually what they wanted. Rainy cooks to be in other words in the vault space on reverses on these armies will slip screens. Etc. given out space and any he wasn't that he was that player coach McCaffery is. About one well if you trait critical to how do you replace the production. Up and cooks easy right there at number eleven. Christian McCaffery though at by seducing all it's gonna be it's got to be defense has got to be either have to be defense eleven. It could be it should be but what is. You're guys that you covet. Are gone a lot like in what was at 4015. When he got the latest. A couple of guys they really liked. Well off the board when they were when they were selected so they went often throughout the next highest rated player. I could see that happen at a Christian McCaffrey a lot of mock drafts are projected to go fifteen to a 1519 but it's got three weeks here. I think is his stock is gonna continue to rise in in in he's he's going to be up the ports quite a bit. Would not be surprised if it's pressure McCaffrey just talent. That have to be at defense simpler. And by the way Sean Payton is talk about how deep is deep it's a drafted it's acting president at quarterback when you've got five picks in the first on an three selections you're preaching hate. He got he got an opportunity there we don't have to force a pit. And oh by the way when shopping talked about how much he loved the running back or to. It's an indication they they're they're looking high draft he wanted to whether it's Christian McCaffery somebody the first couple rounds with a no. Another reason I'll keep Golan. Mark Eagles in year three of a four year contract extension he signed a couple of all seasons ago. That was the second contract the team one that's typically don't give a third contract with the same team it just doesn't happen. They lost Tim Hightower the news some versatility. By the way he plays special teams is punt return kick return yet yet taken juniors you also have a younger version crucial McCaffery that can do that. He gives you more debt that he gives you an area where. You haven't had a lot of depth of the last couple years on special teams as a return guy it's been nonexistent for LSU and excuse for the saints in return game. The last couple seasons court you will be the last guy that return to kick off for a touchdown they're Sproles last got to return a punt for touchdown. Key point here. So trying to sell you on why Christian McCaffery would be the selection. Some ill why they shouldn't aside from all it's got to be defense that have to be it just doesn't have to. 50426018. Semi tech's 878 semi it's a sport more from state coach. Sean Payton coming up next here on W in the 60 to three on sex silent we are saying about McCaffery I agree they need to upgrade the running back position Smart move and eleven Craig from Avant good to have you Craig in Annandale another one thing haven't they can weigh in on offense that's been the problem. Italy the restaurant that we those second round while what it'll find a player like Christian McCaffery in the second round with its gilts and probably. Will not. Paul want to open a final four to 6018 semi tech's 87 meets everybody bears mock draft on line for yet W google.com. With eleven pick the saints are selecting their Ornette according to the cajun cannon Bobby bare. 32 overall are taking Patrick Holmes back at a Texas Tech probably has wrapped up his pro day on Friday. And Bobby told me it just so you know it's via a peek behind the curtain fuel. But becomes media days is. He. Listen I'm gonna do the mock draft but my mom my remarked that don't count to 48 hours before the draft OK okay you know. Our product is development fund dispute that he's not drafted but that's how body thinks its all these are not real real. Who wants it he the ones that he puts his don't count until 48 hours before the draft to seal. Say take coach Sean Payton earlier this week at the NFL owners' meetings yeah I see do you potter what's our defense ranked seventh and analyze BC's take their apartment there. Only to that minute but. Sean being talked about the collective bargaining agreement players working out at mentor Bill Parcells place. Yeah I mean there's parts to that that are true I think. You know the one thing is look we've we've got great facilities so. Just. Forget coaching part of it. We've got great facilities in and there are certain restrictions were they just kicked over there and throw and kick and punt on the road. You know they have to go down the road to the high school and you know the Lifetime Fitness thing now you get achieved when they're 3:30 in the morning you're on a treadmill if you want right. So our sports unique that way every night because I know baseball basketball. You know you're living in that area and you won't go get a workout in and and then maybe you do something football related hours. To your sport you can. So there are some things that I think. Maybe hopefully can get shifted. The next. I ask the new CVA that's coming out a few years in terms of what they how they can maybe fix that allowing more work outs that was a big part of the SEB that was struck between eleven players that want to be a facility as much that's why. Crackdown and then cut down the number of OT gazans. Practices many camps etc. that they can spend in the building. Sean picked shopping talk about the acquisition of linebacker anti tea. We felt like we're we're helped ourselves by bringing in experienced players. You know you sort through position specifically. But. With tail you know is coming off of an injury. And it's kind of been nicked up but when he's played he's played pretty well Mike Nolan was with the San Diego was a little bit of background there we know climb we played them two times a year. You put it all together you know. Like what you said earlier. We've got some news there. It's better experience and got quite a bit linebackers now and then I'm comfortable that is I think we gotta we gotta play better. I'd say it's continue to add to their line backing Paul with some anti detail a decline this offseason needs to par and Craig Robertson. Last off season now finally here's saints coach Sean Payton on the selection process in the dress up coming into the month. Yep we felt we felt. We had a great on player. That match the pick absolutely and I would say this Larry. That would be the case last year but in the case of the year prior but you know life. It didn't want the one thing about. Selected quarterback. When you currently might have helped warlord. Up on what we do. There's that there's some some of the you know what we've drifted. More stood in the fifth round. And they make you go to talk to the media is you don't draft a part of and let you know. Sometimes people would say that continuously loses his wife strategy and then I think then. The point being. Fifty. That's that. Is worth more than. Men. And I think if you look closely at that. But apparently they'll. I'd so that you saw about drafted a quarterback there potentially at 32 for the New Orleans Saints Patrick Holmes I think on Texas Tech back. And they read is Prodi couple weeks back but I mean private workout the weeks back. I think he's going to be on the east Texas diplomacy it's 1 o'clock Thursday it anyway but. Yeah obviously heard there at the draft and ours from jumping on a tracking your strength that's what I mean. That's why I'm not totally nuts and off base about for McCaffery potentially going. To them with the eleventh overall fit it's not out of the realm of possibilities this is not in particular if you heard Sean Payton which we had to buy target to. But he talked about how there's a prototype defense have been at it looking for prototype. So what habits that will take his gall. With the eleventh overall pick that you go elsewhere to the phones go pin on line one you're on the vehicle thanks for Coleman. Bankers. Could. I was gone about it jacket I don't know if you're comfortable way to class in. Alabama. I remember him to be able to enable you know. I would very pressured if I didn't hear you guys you know he broke away. Ed I guess you know expert Mike is Eric that you know I don't think it matches up well and grown up. Well I'll go. I mean about it being dragged out users to walk off field area. You know. Let retired Notre Dame team was was yeah edit that your great seldom. Elaborate you know you get it and in the end it was caught up there. She's a player but it alternate. Do you buy hourly you buy ever considered. Maintenance I'll leave players particularly in the second round and by the way his pro career is on I mean he's missed point six games. Your pro career in particular this year is an awfully que les. Pendant there after what we three week four missed. And it which is name coach you know yeah a greater up here I don't know why it's not. Players. At least talk about he's talking about mantech Leo experience wise. Move as. A coach or you know you took the you know my tactic and that. Look I recount not too bullish on the midnight today outside either I'm kind differently and you know whatever. I think anybody last. You know I Utley he you know it. Law a mile on the opposite him blast them as a pro player and yes I don't agree review though that. He's injury prone he can't match up I think it it's just. The nature of the game I think it not because he can't match up just because he sets a bad law but as far as his ability to play. Massey he's an average player he's an average climb back certain he could be now in the states that look in the past with draft with with signing a guy that's had. The first four years of his career maybe not live up to maybe where he was drafted in. The get a couple of good years out album what if that's what happens it's it's a pretty easy deal though for. Maytag tail on the saints if you look at the numbers and it's only 600000 dollars guaranteed it's five million dollar contract but it's instantly so 600000 dollars guaranteed money is not a lot of money in the NFL it may be a lot of money you and I. But but but by the relative terms it's pretty safe eland if you if you if you keep your production out of him you're getting a bargain. That's why ultimately don't have an issue with assignment tactic. They add in the body if it's money based on eight with the production based rather them not that there comes a little more pricey and there and that that's been article it worked well. The problem is those guys don't hit the open market very often. So he's in the senior. So got it I got immediate. I'd rather do it on you know there have been that somebody to get it to the. And they might do that they might do that can they might in that draft a linebacker it's Agassi where they would they would add one at there at the round fits but they've got. That got quite a a lot of depth now linebacker. The other questions Stephon Nancy what do you do within the reality Craig Robertson eight Steve park AJ climate that tea out. Com pilot Michael audio part of that as well is recovering well. From a his politeness surgery and expects to be ready to go country camp those companies so. We'll see me I think I could see draft a linebacker at some point whether it's you know middle rounds later rounds won't find out but. I think it's not one more pressing needs Maytag tea out it's one of those deals where you look at it again and still. Now let's see let's wait and see it's not it's not one of those that that that requires a lot of scrutiny because of the money like that talked about 600000 dollars in guaranteed money. It will mean it didn't work out see you later on that nothing ever really mean. As much debt monies they've had the past what's 6000 dollars to. Aren't simple way coming back for our CBS news update I'll see your phone calls at 50426018. Semi tech's 877 where should the seats go if you do a mock draft. Eleventh overall were you on the pick. Without elevenths election also 32 I gotta get quarterbacks lassie the out of Connecticut will be mellow enough food way and tell me where I'm wrong or right. It's just sports rolls on here on the beat him well enough and I several text messages to get through here 8787 the how far as the from 9518 how far do you think McAfee you'll fall and do you think the saints will treat out of that 32. Spot August arm gaffe LT talent top fifteen public. Lastly it's conceivable that Adam pegged at eleven hole to fill the seats on the board and eleven in McCaffrey's there. They've missed out on all the other players. Come out you know that the players in my covet. I wouldn't rule out the possibility of them trading back from eleventh. Let's say fourteen of fifteen now miceli seat that citizens on patent. Mickey Loomis is neat to they don't usually trade back however though that 32 pick I could see them trading at that. A little bit more easily that I that I would if they were picking you know when he ranges because. At 32 you move back to agree spots let's might jump in that 32 spot maybe Cleveland. You swap picks with them and leadoff the second round. And you pick up an extra selection on file with a calm and nothing at that point. The board it's a bit jumbled whether it might be five or six guys that you could conceivably be OK with selecting. And you move back he still captured yet you know one of those 51 of those 45 players that you. At what Sean Pate would call his clout the cloud players that. That they like that protects an 8787. What's with the saint picking up broke down players well. They've taken injury risks in the past it's worked out at times and by the way when you gotten burned on big free agent signings in the past the big money deals is kind of where you shop. And this is part of the NFL every team does this where you know it says its players banged up. Coming off an injury or give cheap that you kind of betting on the idea that he comes back and gives some production it's a little wrist kind of deal on fire with a I don't mind them doing that that that particular the money's right to differ. Meant that tale I think the money is right. From Wayne says I review Christian saints. Adding that dynamic running back but I believe that run that will be Joseph mix in with the second rounder in my opinion. He gives you more than McCaffrey does plus you have here Ingram placement well. Promise he comes with a lot of baggage. And the saints don't wanna be at this go to meet with Joseph Nixon. And bodily Joseph makes it was taken off the board of the New England Patriots like you name draft because it is. One year suspension and Oklahoma for domestic abuse case for the video showed him striking woman. An and I would not be on board at all with the saints for a player not because the talent is because of that batteries don't need that I don't want that. I would I would hope that the fans don't want that. Sean Payton has made a concerted effort to recreate that locked room which by the way. He said at the owners means you feel like it's pretty strong it sound like he moderately in the ground work at a player. That has a checkered past and we'll see if that falls out but. Not a fan of Joseph makes enough pressure they'll see him don't wanna see him. Excuse me in the black eagle. Another one what about Johnny football to still read it Villa come. So much was made about that Johnny football meeting with which Sean Payton was really just that breakfast a couple coffee nothing more. Citrus schools to a couple more of these. They keep trying to hit another home unlikely it would Drew Brees that was from Derosa and 73 William I mean what's wrong with that sounds like he should be taught in omens. That's your job is probably as they've missed more often than they've hit here lately so I'm on the suit but it won't go out there via aggressive you want to be aggressive but be Smart. Did the right player draft the right players sign right freeagent Emmett Till that last couple of seasons. Rule the Aussie. 119 and I agree if full training camp would help us in the early going back Alvin Gentry in Atlanta Falcons are playing right now related defense 80% went pace. Actively cousins and the market mean DeMarcus Cousins and Allan gentry along with. And it gave to sort of get to a bit of the rhythm start define their their group a little bit here might be too little too late but. Those that are called for Alvin Gentry to lose his job you're off base I mean you know maybe you know these. He's not gonna happen I think it ultimately if you look at the roster objectively they don't have the pieces around you know brown eat those pieces don't want more full offseason I think that expectations next year. Will be sky high it should be and I think he'll live up to those expectations that the add a player to. Around you know brow and a full offseason those guys were together in now but it insists on the album to treat them up on that trade. Eating because this year he basically said. Yell out to to give you one more year plan to get the right steadily to a back it's just sports here at W well enough and I see you saying. From 1998. He wouldn't get mixed in and in the mix here in the world because he made a mistake well for so that's pretty egregious mistake you don't want to be clear today's climate these. He should never be he should never do but it is climate. After Ray Rice and that it. And he looked at totally differently maybe was it felt fifteen years equipment that swept them rub. Shouldn't habits of them at fifteen years ago he had a woman makes you question your judgment now. Does he deserve a second chance in the league yes. It's really its first chance because he got 884 and Oklahoma that's been it for year sure are all outfield mix again. Shot. Just not with the saints. Act as if the saints dislike. Dislike this whole Johnny Mann itself. I'm all for John immense though. He shot in the fell. I think the saints don't have the luxury to take the risk on a character guy. You take risks on character players when your playoff team. When you into the playoffs you have established locker room you know missed Dallas culture the saints haven't we establish a culture. They had lost 793 straight years they're not at positioned to take it to gamble on players that might have a checkered past. That could prove to be a really good player. And help you out however that the it's not a guarantee that he won't get in trouble. And you don't need that. It's awfully expensive if that's election the second and the second round and it's in trouble again you try to rebuild. That's Rummy. They're not a position to do that I'd be okay with another team if it's patriots are it's. Steelers. Packers. Atlanta. Public see the Atlanta the April fools joke around social media yesterday. And it was only a matter of time. Is Matt Ryan all the a couple of Barney trophies thing with the caption April fool's. Of course saints fans take advantage of Matt Ryan get some more laps of Matt Ryan and the falcons. 8787 mile text line 5042601870. Doesn't get any easier for LSU baseball. Next weekend on the road at Arkansas. The tigers five and four and SEC play after dropping to Texas in him to a three to Texas them. Yesterday four to three head one out away from winning the series and you about three run bomb killed Gilbert. To a guy batting 189. For the season. 189. Skill as a serie A baseball's been cool sport and be. It's a much more unpredictable. Then perhaps college football because the level playing field but nonetheless LSU really a little bit. Try to get things together trying to. Make a run to all market topping national seeded doesn't look like a copy national seed. Caliber team at this point if you're in College Baseball if you look at it objectively. There are things you like and there are a lot of things you dislike about the cellist baseball. All right so final sports is so white semi tech's 8787. I am trying to reap the movie's about to break to do so much and doing yet it is it in the little volatile get a little angry with me about Joseph Nixon. And yet request site hairy Newt but I mean. A mobile take the time to read these read them. Carefully before I just read them on the year don't make sure there they're saying exactly what I. What I with the need to piecing reform be on air worthy on air suitable. But keep accommodate 7870. Looked at that. The doing the patriots. Pat him off the port which exit. By the way though the states fashion themselves as a New England of the south don't they wanna be like patriots like they fashioned organization after knowing him well. Take off the board don't draft. And this is not again. Not me hate all the young man in Asia. Just the shot shouldn't be here in new worlds goes morals. They still have that luxury but. Obviously got a text messages. An 87870. You guys disagree. KG as of right now BC LSU baseball make it tomahawk a question down from 9768. No I don't. As of right now what I've seen so far up. They might host a regional I only think there were super regional host site at this point. Based on the record wouldn't it's there now it's gonna take 42 wins in the SEC and ultimately you chew. A topic national seat in and make Iran and to the SEC tournament win the SEC you know post via. Host a regional super regional but right now now I don't see you know law because of the issues they have. Clutch hitting. Bullpen at times. That look like complete team and me could that turn around could achieve absolutely. And I am hoping that it will because look. We need jealousy baseball on number of levels it helps bridge that gap from like. Late may tune. You know like that may June dead period where's there's just absolutely nothing going on real world of sports game BA's kind of done at that point. For the most part college World Series is now all you have to bridge the gap between. That training camp and the star football season so yeah I want that happened and they don't think too. I want to lane I want. You know I want all the states who you'll oh SE I want in the duo also it's not just shoot. I'm out baseball. Cap and watched more baseball. Flights were were part of which network. Talk more about Ellis baseball. Another school that all of you know ball that's how baseball there's a great baseball it's the I'll be enough credit. Now our rapid up next here on on its sports on their redeployment and I'd filed all of the show Bryant online want you on W ago waited until mix with summit. For. Two important things to consider and are looking at a player like that. One he's got to be all right chip preaching. And I really don't see that at all. And he asked you wore street in a rich column and he's not worked in a risk or changing a bit approaching you know bill. That job you know very well that your Norman. Give or take that risk because of the east on each. Well we'll see you critical need. And are you he would not he would go to the locker room thanks. Brian. I can't disagree. Maybe maybe he would come and it'll locker room immediate fit. When I worry about it it is and I got a text you see how many kids commit the league's weekly and ended up getting in trouble. Not that many. The numbers bear that out. If you have a kid that price has a prior history. The chances of them repeating that are much higher at the National Football League win they have a lot of money win they have a lot more free time. When there are left to their own devices a lot more than they are in college where they can babysit a little bit better keep closer tabs on. It doesn't happen in the NFL it's more likely that a player that comes in with a little bit of history tends to repeat that history it's been proven look look at look at junior Colette. The reason why he ended up at Stillman College instead of temple he get kicked out of temple because he couldn't behave. It's the new world it's big contract doesn't behave. Get the point here. I mean it's it's a great way to predict future. Is by look at its demise past. Easy you have character you know he hit a woman. And chance are you use your pride and do some silly make a bad judgment may import judgment against support on the road you may not have another one will be might somehow else that's down. I mean. The notion that oh that the coming squeaky clean men. They get trouble about that it's not a cycle look at the numbers it's it. If it doesn't happen nearly with the frequency that a player that has something that's in their past. Rearing its ugly head again now there are some cases. Where its weekly player gets in trouble there are also cases where a players had a checkered past. Any any fix themselves they get themselves right there model citizens at the NFL level. It weren't that great colleges and the FLA they do the right thing that happens fine. I just hear me out the seats are not at that. Space where they can take on a bit of a risk that where not. With the amount painstaking efforts they've gone through the last couple seasons off seasons to rid themselves in restructure the locker room and reconfigure the character. In leadership of that locker room. At 793 straight years. Can happen that does. Optional Peyton and company there on the hot seat. Just tells me a lot of the if they had a draft and player like that they Emmys they feel real good about this roster and that meet your expectations should be even higher. And meet you think that the player like that you should expect in the B a playoffs Al although we all do. Because 793 straight years you're on the hot seat here. Your your face in. The fire line if you're shopping Mickey Loomis this year it's make or break there's no doubt about it. But the draft player like that the till July. The formula that pressure can't wait for the traffic either this month and not wait we'll have wall to wall coverage. For you right here on the flagship of new York new world seats Yemen due to be although all of replace article that pills might today Bobby Hebert the albeit. Our tire sports team myself I'll be kept out of there at these camps for treaties. Always look for to a and I really like the latter rounds I like that its sixth and seventh rounds. Maybe more so in the first seconds. Because you never know where where they're gonna come up with a player that ends up being. Won the steal of the draft if they come up with a steel. David Potter bats patrol couldn't do without you thanks much for your help but also all those that got a ball. On the text line on the phone lines and also on Twitter. The body to CS on Tuesday for double coverage means that the lap at 8 o'clock. Breakdown national team game LSU baseball etc. that national changing game between UNC and get Zach got tomorrow night right here on WWL super file about it joint U or Sunday.
