And the Saints have Leinart ranked higher on their draft board than any QB in the last few years.
Assume Bush to Texans, but if Leinart goes to NO, then the Titans have no decsion but to take Young at #3, and that suddenly makes Jay Cutler's value ROCKET up the charts, because there are at least 3 teams in the next few picks (Jets, Raiders, and Cardinals) who really need to draft a QB.
He wont go to NO hes going to be a raider rather you like it or not.
