Saints need another playmaking receiver???

Pat Kirwan Even though I think this should be filed away in the "Nothing to see here" category, I couldn't resist posting this just because I think he totally misses the mark on the Saints' draft needs. He actually suggests we draft a WR and a kicker and says nothing about drafting a defensive player. What is this guy smoking? New Orleans Saints Running back: With Deuce McAllister released, the Saints need a big running back who can handle the pounding between the tackles. Pierre Thomas proved he can do some of that, but he wouldn't hold up in that role as a full-time player. Georgia's Knowshon Moreno or Ohio State's Chris "Beanie" Wells would complement Reggie Bush well. Center: Jonathan Goodwin and newly signed Nick Leckey can hold down the fort for now, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Saints try to upgrade here. Wide receiver: Marques Colston, Devery Henderson and Lance Moore are a solid top three, but there are still questions about Robert Meachem, a 2007 first-round draft pick who has just 12 catches in two seasons. For a team that likes to spread things out, the Saints need to look for another playmaking receiver. Kicker: Matt Stover and John Carney are still free-agent options, but there could be a worthy kicker late in the draft. Otherwise, the Saints have Garrett Hartley, who made all 13 of his field-goal attempts in eight games as a rookie last season. Draft choices: Nos. 14, 116, 118, 222
