jeffduncantp Excellent feature by @MikeTriplettTP on 1 of the #Saints' best ever draft picks: Deuce McAllister, No. 23 pick in '01:


Saints/NFC South/NFL Draft

Deuce McAllister, New Orleans Saints proved a perfect fit |
Mike Triplett - He wasn't a team need in 2001, but he became one of the most loved.

NFL draft may see run from history regarding selection of backs |
Mike Triplett - First in a series previewing the 2011 NFL draft.

Bilal Powell, Third-Ranked Rusher |
Matt Waldman - Louisville running back Bilal Powell loves to initiate contact. He still plays with a former defender's mentality. (this one's for you, we're gonna need a bigger boat)

NFL teams preferring to focus on the inside regarding personnel |
Jeff Duncan - The NFL is a game of constant evolution. The latest trend is happening inside.

Hitting the NFC South hot spots - NFC South Blog |
Pat Y. - Time for a plunge into the NFC South mailbag to see what readers around the division are wondering about.

Monday deadline to Call It on draft needs - NFC South Blog |
No huge surprises. In fact, the vote on the Saints’ top need is very close between defensive end and outside linebacker and the winner could go either way. Includes links to the polls so you can vote.


NFL Mediation Blues

N.F.L. and Players See Same Forest, Different Trees |
Judy Battista - As court-ordered mediation began Thursday, N.F.L. team owners and players saw the lockout, and other issues, in distinctly different ways.

Courtroom Football: Mediation Phase |
Andrew Brandt - Mediation part two begins in earnest today as the key player in the NFL in 2011, Judge Susan Nelson, has ordered such talks to occur.
