Saints Select K Taylor Mehlhaff in 6th Round

Taylor Mehlhaff (

With their final pick of the 2009 draft, the New Orleans Saints selected K Taylor Mehlhaff from Wisconsin. Here is his scouting report at NFL Draft Countdown.

Uuuuuhhhh...I don't really know how I feel about this one. This left-footer was the top rated kicker in this years draft. He has a strong leg and can kick in tough conditions. But couldn't we have addressed our kicking needs after the draft with FA. Did we have to use a pick on him? Aren't there more pressing needs? I agree this was a position that needed to be addressed, I'm just not sure it needed to be addressed in this manner.

What do you think?
