We're still a long way from the draft but for many NFL fans, Chronic readers included, it's the only thing to look forward to. Personally, I have been deliberately holding off on the draft talk because we have plenty of time to get into it and things change so often from now until then. But with SB Nation's own Mocking the Draftalready gearing up and devoting some time to our beloved Saints, I have no choice but to at least mention it. By the way, I know a lot of you have already been regularly checking out mock draft websites and I highly encourage that, particularly when you share what you have found right here on CSC, but you should definitely add Mocking the Draft to your list. So when they post stories pertintent to the Saints like this Vontae Davis scouting report, you won't miss it.
Anyway, the guys at MTD just posted their team profile for the Saints. This is just a basic run down of the Saints status up to this point. This will act as a basic starting point for their later in-depth discussion about the Saints' draft needs. Even though I disagreed with MTD's first mock draft and their analysis of Tracy Porter as a disappointment, I think they got this one right. I mean, they quoted me so...it's gotta be good.
I will be keeping you guys updated when Mocking The Draft covers the Saints but for those draft freaks who just can't get enough draft coverage, start familiarizing yourselves. Check in on MTD regularly, sign up over there and post comments. It's going to be a long season so you might as well get comfortable.
On an unrelated note, we will be having a Super Bowl Super Open Thread tomorrow evening for the game. I know a lot of people will be doing something special for "the holiday" but for those of you who will be near a computer, I invite you all to come meet and talk about the game right here. The more the merrier and I think it would be very cool to have a lot of us all here together for the big game.
