Just wanted to take a moment to do a little post-draft follow up. We blasted the Saints for taking Meachem with their first pick this year. Now it turns out that the pick may be even worse than advertised. First, there are reports that Meachem has really struggled to keep his weight down, and his motivation has been seriously questioned. That's never good, just ask Mike Williams.
Second, there is this story on ESPN.com now. Apparently Meachem is having some knee problems, which the Saints knew about before the draft. Also, he already missed some time in mini-camp with an ankle issue. Yeah, injury-prone wide receivers who have weight and motivation issues are just a lethal combination.
Ok, enough about the NFL. It just felt good to have our major draft concerns confirmed.
