Looks like he could develop into a Roman Harper, with better coverage skills. I saw a lot of broken up passes on his highlights they just showed.

Had you heard of Colston? Evans? Pierre Thomas?

Corey White, S Samford

Another small school prospect, looks explosive, but couldn't find much else on him.

Yes... I had at least heard of them going into the draft. I've heard of just about every prospect, never heard of Corey White though.

Did you watch the combine this year? His measurable were very good.

I see that. I'm hoping this works out because there are quite a few safeties that I like a lot still available..

I mean, I'm not trying to act like some internet scout or something. I didn't know much about him other than his measurable were very good at the combine. But if I'd heard of him, I would've thought everyone has, because I don't follow any football other than the NFL. I guess he's from a small school, so it's not surprising nobody's heard of him.

I'm really hoping for a CB next.

I would've preferred Iloka/Minnifield/Dennard. I'm also really high on Matt Daniels the safety from Duke.

Looks like he's never had any injury at the college level. I like to hear that. Also looks like he's a solid tackler with good form.

Some picks to look at here:

C Mike Molk
C Mike Brewster
-Brian La Puenta didn't play poorly, but he wasn't great either. Both are very good prospects to develop.

DE Donte Paige-Moss
-Sure he has issues, but as a pure pass rusher could really develop with Spags as DC.

OT Nate Potter
-Might not be a LT, but played LT for a pass first offense in Boise State and could possibly do the same here.

What do you think about taking a CB if Minnifield, Dennard, or someone like that fell?

I'd prefer a CB right now, because OT probably isn't a need this year.

Not sure CB is a need right now either.

Starters:
Jabari Greer
Patrick Robinson

Nickel:
Johnny Patrick

Dime:
Can get on in FA still

I'd like to see more of Patrick. I think a couple guys are still available are at his level, and depth is always a need for us at CB.

I'd still be happy with OT, because the saints have done great at finding o-line guys late in the draft.

Cmon Mickey don't let me down here..

EDIT:

I can live with Tiller. Not a bad pick; not a great one either though.
