Emory Hunt: Saints should have taken Asante Samuel at #1?

New Orleans native and Football Gameplan's creator, now CBS Analyst, Emory Hunt said to podcast host Ross Tucker on Tuesday, "I thought is should have been Asante Samuel."   Hunt was making reference to the New Orleans Saints selecting University of Houston's defensive end Payton Turner in the first round instead of FSU's cornerback Samuel.
