The New Orleans Saints' 2006 Draft
This aritcle by Roy Lang III recaps the Saints' 2006 Draft. One year is really too soon to judge a draft—better to wait at least three years, and arguably four or five— but it certainy does look like a safe bet to be the "second best in Saints' history." Sean Payton remarks: "There's a lot of communication and work done on behalf of the scouts and personnel staff. You start your preparation on the players you are grading, as well as the pro end, where you look at the Jeff Faines. This comes into play when all of a sudden you can back up and acquire Roman Harper and Jeff Faine and back up and acquire Jahri Evans and Hollis Thomas."
