New Orleans Saints OT Charles Brown may have fallen in draft for medical reasons

By James Varney, The Times-Picayune

April 29, 2010, 3:15PM

When the NFL draft began last week, Southern Cal offensive lineman Charles Brown was on most mock draft boards as a first round pick. But his name wasn’t called that Thursday night – the league’s first prime time draft event – and almost wasn’t called the second night, either.

With the final pick of the second round last Friday – and the 64th pick overall – the Saints selected Brown. It was, Saints general manager Mickey Loomis noted, a no-brainer given that Brown was universally graded a much higher player.

New Orleans Saints still have unfulfilled needs after NFL draft

By Jeff Duncan, The Times-Picayune

April 25, 2010, 6:24AM

With another NFL draft in the bag, it’s safe to predict this about the 2010 New Orleans Saints: More shootouts are on the way.

The Saints didn’t get much help for their defense during the three-day player lottery. In fact, they added more players to their top-ranked offense than they did to their 25th-ranked defense.

And the two defensive players they drafted, cornerback Patrick Robinson and defensive tackle Al Woods, aren’t expected to be immediate difference-makers. It’ll be an upset if either cracks the starting lineup this season. And neither is going to help the Saints’ most glaring defensive weakness: a tepid pass rush.

Catching up on NFC South picks

Let’s start with New Orleans taking Charles Brown with the final pick of the second round. Presumably, Lucy and Linus come along with Charlie Brown. But, really, this pick was made with Jammal Brown in mind. He used to be a Pro Bowl left tackle for the Saints. But he missed last season with an injury and he’s been making noise about his desire for a new contract. This may be a case where Jammal Brown should be careful what he’s wishing for. The Saints were able to get by without him last season. Jermon Bushrod and Zach Strief did an adequate job filling in for Jammal Brown last season. Add Charles Brown to that mix and the Saints may able to get by without Jammal Brown on a permanent basis.

Saints turn to basketball player

The New Orleans Saints just drafted a guy who played more basketball than football in college.

With the No. 95 pick overall, they selected Miami tight end Jimmy Graham. He spent three years playing college basketball before switching to football as a senior. Graham caught only 17 passes, but five of them were for touchdowns and he showed enough athleticism to convince the Saints he’s worth a third-round pick.

As weird as the basketball angle sounds, it’s really not that uncommon. Tony Gonzalez was a heck of a basketball player and he became the best tight end ever. With guys like Jeremy Shockey and David Thomas on the roster, the Saints have time to develop Graham. He’s got the tools to develop into something special.
