Which is, I guess, good.

Which is to say Bradley is entirely correct.
On a night of chaos, though, the Saints, the NFL’s drama queens,2 were quiet and calm. They made one of the only choices that perfectly fit pre-draft conventional wisdom, on display in the fact Sheldon Rankins has been the overwhelming choice of mock drafters for months.

The only better — I italicize to remind you nobody knows a damn thing about what is good or bad, with respect to the NFL Draft, until we have hindsight — thing the Saints might have done is trade down for more picks, to improve their percentages. Otherwise, they matched immediate need with perceived quality in a way they haven’t, in the first round, in what seems like a long time.
Not much else to say about the draft yet. Go read the rest of that.
