At No. 16, it's difficult to target a player, but count on this: Whoever it is will be a player that can play right away. Coach Jim Haslett is under the gun to win this season. He needs an impact player and can't afford to select a developmental project. The Saints selected tackle Jon Stinchcomb and wide receiver Devery Henderson in the second rounds of the 2003 and 2004 drafts. Although team officials remain high on both players, neither has contributed much. With the pressure mounting on Haslett to reach the playoffs, don't expect him to waste high picks on anyone that won't contribute immediately.
