For helping us out goodness through it got some interviews coming your way from the first couple of days Marshall Lattimore and outlook Mario hear from Ryan Grant check you'll hear from Marcus Williams all the but all the draft picks seven and all for the New Orleans Saints. New loans with a six round out Quaid in Mohammad out of Miami in the Essex on the seas island that had first. Second and third round picks three through third round picks a second round pick in 21 tropics. You'll hear from those players also saints coach Sean Payton here momentarily got some severe weather rolling through the area. Alexander transferred Debbie Google TV meteorologist on one was right now Alexander I'm sure the weather's been pretty much are upon us at this point right. Yep pretty much the moving into New Orleans as we speak it is already arrived for somebody over in Metairie and Kenner and even parts of the west bank and parts of New Orleans now it's kind of moving in as we speak if you haven't seen it yet and you want it'll becoming just momentarily in the next few minutes. The good thing is there aren't innocent your warnings with it we are under a tornado watch. But we don't have any warnings and it imminently for the New Orleans area or for our North Shore spots so that's good but what we do have of course. Is just some shower and storm activity moving in and something will be rather nasty we have some heavy rain. We have plenty of lightning and we also could have some gusty winds hopefully they would stay below severe criteria and it looks like it will be that way until we get. You know any warning that would pop up but right now no warnings out there are just some thunderstorms moving in right now. And probably continuing to grow about 2 PM or so then this line may actually move off to the east. And later this evening we may have some scattered showers kind of re forming behind it. But I don't think those will be as strong and heavy it's what we're seeing right now. Nicely done Alexander credit for WL TV meteorologist at channel four thank you as. Deuce and Christian reality here. What best describes your feelings about the saints' draft class excited hopeful. Kind of bombed. Twos so when he semi tech's 87 meets at its corporate networking people on line at W Demille dot com. For me it's like yeah. I'm I'm I'm kind of excited honestly about this class and though. They get the pass rusher by screamed about and in have an LSU player and put I think they found four starters. I'm particularly the first two picks thank your safety Marcus Williams going to be a starter and outlook tomorrow is another star so he did pretty well for yourself for their needs it and in. You know I don't want people to what rule when we say starters yes he may share in all but over time obviously discussed should be a star yet you know and that's what we mean when we say starter yet he makes the article games this year. The bed and mean that Al Camara salute he gets here he walks in and he's a star running back. He's gonna be the feature guys they don't have a feature run back as you well know correct. So me and yet the let me clarify that and Marshall Lattimore but if he might be end up being on the nickel might be in a plane now. And radical he may not get introduced as the starter. Weekend and week out but playing significant rules say if you'll Ryan Grant check. He might not be out Zach Strief but he's gonna be that swing tackle he's going to be that happened at that tackle eligible. He'll be he'll he'll be the tackles when god he's gonna give every opportunity. To get ready to play this year because that's what they drafted him for. Marcus Williams and that safety rule Von Del Monte the you'd talk about this I think he'd he touched on earlier when such selection was made. But it gives you a little more versatility with Katie McCall as to what you gonna ask of him but also on bell. While bond bill now he'll be X Covert fled you'll be actually covered Alley. You know as far as to be able to walk up on the outside on the you can rush off the is or you can go in the coverage and in and flat area. You know almost as well as third so it gives us say some versatility on coverage wise whether they wanna go inverted to whether he wanted to over just read recovered to. Walk to safety down and and make it into a three. You know it just gives them some versatility where they can use his skills that probably a little bit better as well he ought to use the Carl in the slot anymore. Well you can still use both of them in the slot yeah I mean you can use both of them in the slot. Four for for that opera process. You know on one walks down the EE covers the middle of the field the other could be awful the age of the slot so it gives and just versatility of what they can do I. Got a text here's 7660. Say the calls we've bridges being close. Analysts say it my phone's been beating a mile a minute tornado warning today tornado warning in Madison skewed in Madison bill. But they're a star pop rubble we'll give you those as they come along here. The potters got got the ES EAS system back there and this is a goes off there's any warnings pass along we will do so. You can get you can be our eyes and ears on the ground out there as well what's your hearing what you're seeing from the severe weather please pass along to us at 504260187. On the text that he seventy. 87 Marshall Lattimore Ryan ran checked all of it's one out of Wisconsin 21 round draft picks for the new world sees the undrafted players. Coming in we'll talk about those on a few moments will step boy come back we'll bring bring you part one. Sean pains press conference yesterday out of seats camp you're on to read into I for you to Sean Payton is press conference we get to ten on line one is our eyes and ears out there told you guys to do that force if if you're experiencing this severe weather that's rolling through Ken you're on W girls want. It. We have these greens and mileage on. Of the year. And the war. And you know not best. And right now he's got. News about our I don't know. I Osce lady. I noticed that you know is almost put somebody writes it's a huge block on that boat attack on the you know and so. They talk. Go on you to get it out yet. And you know legacy that apple knows the chart but elect boards by cost well. Before before the suspension and he was owned scheduled to make a probable. And I mean and he was going to be voted in you know not a replacement player he was on schedule to make a Pro Bowl that's how impressive he had been in as far as playing. Now he understands that he can't doom the silly stuff and and and and and jeopardize the team. With whipped with a rubber the penalties the late hits and and and and control Mitt. But I mean his play last year was outstanding. Ya are not figured maybe reach a little bit for over Carl there you look at you look at his production and has become a first round draft again that second year sophomore lol. But his virtue was outstanding. You're three years for were were were really good as well it's a little tarnished by that. By that four game suspension which he paid for me he paid his dues for me you know he paid he paid the price for that and probably lost out on some money because they were gonna extend him rather than just picking up the option on him. 08 I think you'll see them extension caution it will it will bound to sailing and in the interim I didn't force the states to go I know we got his right now. Where economic. I. Sean Payton. Part one from his press conference yesterday to elicit. So look right now the process for the scouts and coaches. Is you get more organized like who would always do for free agency. With really have a position stacked if you look at the board. Office of players over to defense of players. In the event players and drafted trying to prioritize. You know who it is we wanna sign first. Because of her we've talked about it before so there's. You know a lot going on and it in a short amount of time between the agent the prospect. Our coach or scout that knows the players. Mickey Kai myself there Jeff there's really it's it's all hands on deck. For the hour two hours after the draft. So that that's kind of where we're met with our preparation. And questions with today. The old days of the whole three days. You walk from beauty. Kate. Well we'll find out you would like to think that. You know we'd like to think we have them I'm quite certain certain we have to what degree will we get a better feel for. We've had a number of positions. You know a lot of times I'm urged talking with Mickey yesterday a lot of times. You know you're priority or must. Might not come to you in the first round cornerback was a must position so we're able to do that with a player that. There were excited about. And so managing that board. And in and making sure. You're getting the value is is extremely important. I think. Jeff Ireland. And and his staff and you know the scouts. And done a great job Jeff someone who's very experienced at this process and I think. You know he's the zone's third draft here with us and he he's been a tremendous. Asset. So we're excited about the way things fell and almost seems aren't they always are this time of the year. But. Looking down the list and in in just seen and you don't. Where and how we were able acquire these guys the Camara pick for instance. You know essentially this year's three is worth next year's two there's a little bit it. So it it was it was pretty easy it was really another third round selection. That's the value is is. Trades take place. You're talking about a pick this year. And then war. Talking about a future picks generally you skipped down one round so. We felt like there was tremendous value in in that acquisition. But you know again will we get all of these guys in here and you know we'll begin the process quickly get him up to speed in. There were clear revisions for all of these players clear visions as to how we see them being news. And I think that's important. He. Yeah spent a lot of time on campus he was here. You know he's someone. When you talk to those people at the school. You know they have a strong opinion about him in regards to football make up. Certainly made some mistakes but. You know there there were ones that weeks we were very comfortable with. You know you get into the rental car what have you. This is a guy that loves football. And you know we set for good round and a half way not on on this on this election in he's a pressure player. We think he's physical. He was heavily recruited he's from north Jersey plated Don Bosco strong football program there. You know highly recruited to Miami. And you know I think. That was it was a real good addition force today. I like that this huge write much. Got it won't look football players get my dad in the sixth round what you think he if not what was yours I don't know that those were strong. You know it's it's it's it's tough for me answer that. But. You know. More pretty more pretty picky when it comes to in and I kept listening to. The make up grade and in and felt pretty comfortable. With what I was here and and in. And relative to. To some players that are off the board this has made some mistakes but. He's been ruled good teammate. A guy that they release coaches players that are really felt strongly about. That's a little more difficult you know that. You're looking at the Mets doubles to combine. His pro day you are looking at tape. From his freshman year you're looking at the tape that he's played in in there's some traits that are exciting. Look at that tape for a year we look at it. But you are. We'll look at all of us you know we're looking at all the snaps in the put in a profile taped together on the right side the left side. He's a physical player he's he's. He's someone that again we. We were. Real excited about it and we just said wait a good round and I have to to see were. Where we be if if he felt. Well you never been hurt. You're really go through the process and in his everything you want. Yeah it would be hard to say look we we had corner obviously we had. Pressure player defense of van that was important we felt like we got her. Real good linebacker. You know we've got to sort through how we play nickel. You know when I think the versatility we now have what the safety we drafted. So there's there's a few things on that side of the ball there that tackle. Is. Is a player that. You know all of a sudden in the first round you know with a great that we had it just felt for us fortunately in so. Now look at it the whole depth. With a pretty good about how these values well. I mean more more so this year than act recalled a long time in in we'll see we don't we and number picks when you have 21 round picks your open. That you fall into the situations. Yeah what you mean there were discussions. It with each picked there were discussions moving up and back. And then it was really just trying to Armenian the last pit there were three. Three opportunities to move back pickup seventh. But we didn't we wanna do that with this are still available. So I don't know that we went insane and we got to make all seven picks but I think we went in. With an idea of will be patient here and what's the other Singh Paulson in. We knew we won't want to move up early in in give up. What we felt was one of the stronger parts of the draft and and you know rounds two and three in. Who didn't wanna do that. Finally some restraint exercised over there on airline drive them unhappy today that in. It is feel compelled to trade up they got their guy eleven in Marshall Lattimore the best government in the draft. Eleventh overall Ryan ran check as well 32 right before. They were gonna take movement fostered some in Foster gotten gotten jumped and look at the forecast for the trade in this division between Seattle and San Cisco to make that deal happened so. The saints were right in impatiently waiting G if you look at that board dues you're not you're not going well who could who could move in maybe another team being not forecasting a team. In the division that could jump ahead. Correct and and when you look at it you know you're talking about a player that's going to be hidden. Russell Wilson yeah hill and so you look at the linebackers. That CL ahead felt confident no that that's not something may have they would do and bosh who would be there. An end and they straighten out the report yesterday that Foster hung up on the saints now wasn't the issue news what they condescending look. Another call coming in I take it in Stew in it it's gonna come with a draft unfolds sometimes in in strip hang up on a saints beat you Loomis. Kind of provide some details on how that transpired but a pretty good draft Paul. For the New Orleans Saints will break down. The draft haul around the NFC south and also. Around the national police emote some of the teams that did well and didn't do so well one in particular the Buffalo Bills they fired their general manager. This morning. And scouting department and entire scouting department and an end to our scouting department so. That's interest in this relief and they're picks one bad on the 27 overall they traded down from ten to 27 bigotry like the quarterback kind of relishes the godsey Jones. And him 37 overall also. And how to at all but ultimately when you trade out of a spot where you potentially draft would be many feel like is a franchise quarterback pat homes that didn't sit well with the owners. And I didn't sit well you know and you have to understand when that new ownership bought that team. That was not their GM. And so now whether they want to go to this draft process would Whaley and his crew they get an opportunity to get their guys now they got their coats. And Sean McDermott now bill have an opportunity get to GM as well yet and. The other part of it is too. It's tough but that's when you fire Eugene it's got a department at the tribunal fire and the week before. You let him do the work that's part of academia all kinds of instability. A week for the draft he do now once that's that's the time the he make these decisions once they with the draft includes Carol and utilities until 1878 X 870 eights into a best describe your feelings about the saints' draft class hopeful.

Doug Whaley the general manager and scouting staff has been fired. After their draft class of what do you think of the seeds draft class all in all dating get that pass rush they coveted. We understand that our fans coveted but if you go look at that board dues. Letting it letting get in early yes and yet data dating given early light you know home myself included. Thought they would yell. I think Hendricks and now I'll Mohamed will be really good players but update to those guys are a little raw now I think both of whom would have Upton played. This year you know but. They won't be an every down player. And also when when you look at the board the way it fell allow T you know Sean Payton said and I believe because I did see any mock drafts that had. Lattimore available 11 in the evening knowledge to painted. That after the pick that indeed it was hard to do a mock draft a scenario where he would be available. Seal forced the Pickens is golf you know we we we needed defense and that's right light and in particular from eleven till about 411 to about 24. It was only caught a couple taken in on a more special meet in other words the two special pass rushes in this trap for Solomon Thomas and miles Garrett they were along goal. Yeah he had Barnett and hairs who came off I mean but you know there's a special yet the saints really liked. Teak and Kim I mean I attacked at tech that we can only in your off elected the improbably ahead mig McDowell. Rated somewhere fairly high in there but no he he went to Seattle also. Billy I I think they did well overall. I two phones or go Carol what's going on your W to do well Carol. Guy and an ingredient and the and that rain at all week hypocrisy if you'd. You know. We. And it would see at a particular out. Of column I want. I want you to turn it shouldn't but you know when it's expected that he didn't the president cheap deal. At the bit to. What the bank on it but. As to try to bring it back. Debt image. Yeah. My day I heard. It was wags say adequate at all. It's deceit the Eddie taught that the bank for you bought a defender from my opinion these seat at the top. Do you get a year you can't get back in the that we need in an app tell me at the. I'll think he'll do it. If you ask him for one play you know I think that that has to be a Mike I think that has the media middle linebacker they've got a couple guys that that. Have lived there roughness that you need I mean if you can dominate and in the trenches. If nick fairly consume a week in and week out of ranking can show a week in and week out if you can dominate in the trade Tuesday Mets got to do enough where teams won't be able to run the football long year and now it's an opportunity of roll and Mahan as a defender you just wanna be able to have some big hits be able to create some turnovers. 96 AD don't tax line okay we just get this all my tests and M bear with me do so by if I get a little hot right here. I'm tired of hearing about why they drafted players and injuries guess why. Every college players that's coming out has some sort of injury history. Aren't they it's impossible. The play Aggie team and not have injury look at aids alone yes he's been marred by injuries but he can't control book broken form that can happen in training camp. Just like it happened to two Sheldon Reich is a training camp would break his debut that can happen anyone with goal line setting. I'd like. If you should go on a disk is this what set me off the X 968 eights as they got lame horses I don't know that I'd say lame horses I'd say guys that. At the right round you roll the dice on on on injuries and a case of martial Lotta more. The talent was way more superior than the injury concerns is pretty clear. I'm I'm just a I'm tired of hearing that you'd be you'd feel better and I do feel of poker I'm just starting here that other. There injured yeah they ought a lot of these players have been injured at some point their career you're on the following error in the. Nobody is gonna go and play that game and and and be perfect and say look I didn't get hurt now at some point you going to get hurt. You going to be injured and and and when you play that game. The medical reach checks. By these doctors are what's important in the past that great they passed the recheck. The net now finally now there's injury concern and made it past the recheck the EC guys for example. City jails who The Who who he would go to the Eagles Eagles in the second round. A he had passed it Biden passes. Known as evidence that he's going to be he may not even be available the whole year but the value was there for me that was widely considered to be Jones why the concluded around top fifteen top fifteens election. It popped his Achilles in the enemy in the and it's like that. And just like last year the linebacker with the Dallas Ramsey. None and you know. It's meant to this unique from the Saturday. The deceit. Via. Statement that dropped him in the second and used the often injured and eight cylinders so that's the kind. If you if in the third round if you want to linebacker who's at social problems that the around you do you'll do in round one. Due to. For the most part with their supremely. I just I just gave it to match people lose this is all that all injured stuff a 1540. Suited your home. You pay to be an update BO but there have yet this that's a good witnesses said to break yet and violate. EO in the forty Unita gimme some equipment right. And and my checks might Jackson not signed by by Tom Benson much exercise by Erica. You feel this it was the bezel wanna games in my taken. I'll crack down. Yemen is the thing. At least and at least as the so that I haven't heard before 54 and a half hard to homer thing as easy low hanging fruit let me tell you tell me what am I saying it's wrong. Mr. Benson I don't know why aren't I needed a knee in the Samoan submissive and you chip to exit this life. Alive and I wanna be home I knew he needed. To do this just gives a play a bit of Malacca. Commercial hasn't cracked does it made me think about this one time at day camp and moving from America by. Would you now times welcome back reducing Christian thing you know it. Recap of the draft the draft probably deuce Tom's. Tom Benson has called the detector and registered lunatic here. I some. Severe weather to bad weather rolling through its right now on the CB it is target we can barely see out the window here high the bar purchase foreign reporters street on the the Google studios in men guys or be safe out there if you're experiencing in this weather and it's affecting you negatively we certainly wanna hear about it theirs and cannot. Powerline power outages. Flooding. In like that please let us now hailing like that. Please feel free calls and 50426018. Semi tech's 870. 87 couple's tax will get to a few moments a marine in deuce guy just fell right in north liked and I to be careful. Yeah it its battle please right now target. Up the from channel four and a few moments. First though it's reason at least phone calls Charles online for you on WW. Eight is everybody. Make a quick comment then too short question that I'm on. Urged the ball a Christian allowed viewpoint but it and it really appreciate it neatly in New. Delhi at the Earl brought an. Artery. Really work and I mean I look hokey but because Berkeley and anybody better appreciate it. On top all that. One day. I know the questions I have about my home. Basically my question this. If we had draft him and Adam Lattimore you or be left the bush were on a concern for him be nurtured. And that. Considering he shouldn't. Well. I think religious severe cut in and out Charles on McCutcheon cut you off the use it to a bad cell I think that whether it's on the do that they use basically. I think you know and he's going to freak if you drafted Patrick Holmes there at eleventh he was there he went to pick formed Kansas City trio buffalo. Would there be as much outcry for a pass rusher at that point. Patrick my home can help this team this year. You know that that that's mail my only problem. I mean so here she was set yourself up for the future but Patrick my home was not going to help this team. This year you know and so Lattimore would help this team this year you know and he. Was and a concern area. They they they talked about. Needing and and and an aunt and must feel they must. You know give some typos. Pass rushing and they must get some type of cornerback to help on the back in and so you know Patrick Holmes was not a must you know as far as. As when you when you look at that board you know you it's going to be a need they must have. 11 of these players you know to be able to come in you know. I think their draft strategy. Help plea played out well for the and the way that they were. Interest in our our. Putting off that they were interested in in quarterbacks. I think it helped them pushed the player to their 22 there to their picking eleven and march a lot of more. May the that debt prompted the chiefs fell I know that the saints are real threat here we got to get above the seats in order to get Patrick Holmes and actually just push level right to. Well Cleveland Cleveland and help themselves. You know because they put out that they needed a quarterback and they were going to move up to five. So when that started you know now you have. Debaters who feel like that they need to jump to one place and they give up a litany of Vietnam just to be able to move up. To get to Robiskie filled the spot but once spot the one where you eat you kind of scratch your head and you wonder. Was Tennessee. You know Tennessee really. Probably could've traded bad it may be ten spots to get Corey Davis as as a wire receiver another player. Jun ross' alike depict. I think that you know Cincinnati could've got him a little bit later but they wanna deftly they wanted to definitely help. They're offense. I think they saw when AJ green went down how much it hurt you know Andy Dalton so you know. It's it it was ditching but you know Patrick Holmes was not gonna help to seem this year. 110 wait I'll text line at 878 semi power outage in the lower Garden District yes severe weather rules of the area. Please cues up to date as you guys are being affected by we wanna know how and how we can help as well as you guys need that. Do secrecy on W two LA anathema doc I want to back squeezing in Jeanne. What's lodging year old DaVita to a loss talk about the Alvin tomorrow's election. My problem Christian in Dutch adults for you as Machida ticket that a lot to be in that struggle struggle. Struggled their particularly in the bill bill passed source. And you'll watch to lot of the first what 34 picks come off the and it particularly Kamal. Yet Kim Williams and there is a very good structure well not be great against Iran but we need a crash rusher. You don't do you get a lot of back once offense right collection aggression would want to. One it was on the game we scrolls to bush and bill. But let me try to talk all the little busier Jeanne here's why. It is lately not refute. On and Motorola I understand that that's the DNA that's the make up of this like he's an offensive guy and as long as he's here either us continue to see the offense of retooled. And he's trying to rebuild the defense the let me tell you why the Camara. It makes a lot of sense because they got rid of Darren Sproles he have to help Ted Ginn junior. In terms of takes the pressure off him and in particular. I would lessen the state government take it you know you get rid of Sproles but I'll got article yeah I guess goals in mind because he's gonna play that Sproles Joseph cool yay Deborah debris and coach yet takes pressure off. Take Ginn junior and this offense has been really unique. Really do really special when they've had a Joker style running back in this office so I'm OK with it especially in the third round news. I mean here is an issue that sometimes we we we we too and forgive. As good as this awfully it's was last year there were gains where this offense stroke you know there were games where the defense played well enough to where the offense in so. And whether it was because it was running backs Matt Matt doing their job hiding in dolphin to lie and whomever it was. This is another got it gives you another weapon though and he is he is versatile enough where he can create in this enough mismatches. Where defense is asked to declare whether they're gonna play. Fourth for the new rules something of that nature. Eleven. Eleven points against Tampa comes to mind.
