The Saints definitely stole the leverage from Houston when they signed Brees. Houston is dead in the water right now, b/c they were reportedly shopping the pick with Reggie Bush as leverage, but now his stock has died down as it seems more teams are interested in trading for the best quarterback available. If Houston wants to market their pick, they should start suggesting that they might be interested in a quarterback. But I would find anything Houston said about that pretty unbelievable at this point. So I think the Saints, at No. 2, are at the best place right now in the draft.
I agree that the Saints are in the best spot.....because if Houston does trade out of that spot then NO is in a position to just take who Houston wants there, in Ferguson. If I'm the Jets though, I have talks with both teams and see what the best deal I can get out of it.
