None of these guys have set themselves apart from each other. They all bring additional skills to the board. The problem is this, while the CB position is deep it does not have a group of truly great CBs. So the results is mock drafts have a lot of teams taking risks this year that they would never take in 2007. I would not be surprised to see CB become more of a hot item in round 2 and on the opening of day 2 with round 3 than in the first round like so many think.

How to improve this team for 2008

Unlike most people I am not caught up this emotional roller coaster ride we are on in 2007. This is year 2 of building a team. Yes there are growing pains. The pain for me is the lack of rookie involvement on the field. I am sure it is the same with most of you. We expect to get a couple of instant starters like we did in 2006. But to date the only real contributor has been CB young. Thomas has yet to get involved in the game except as a kick returner....

Glamore Position in Flux for 2007

Eric Johnson - 28
John Owens - 27
Billy Miller - 30
Ronnie Ghent - 27
Mark Campbell - 31 (IR)

I actually like the group as a unit. Like the defensive unit some youth would be nice. Johnson has teased us with his abilities at TE and we have yet seen him do half the things he can do.

Draft watch

Darius Hill*, Ball State, 6-6, 233, 4.67, Ball State in the 4th

Marques Colston - 24
David Patton - 33...

Rent A Defense

The Saints are a lease to own defense. How else can I put it? Look at the unit as a whole. What do we have? Bits and pieces added to the core left over from the Haz administration.

DE - Will Smith and Charles Grant, even at 29, are two solid DE to build around.
FS - Keith Bullocks who is still learning the position and has yet to play a year with same SS and Jay Belemy at 35 years young.
CB - Fred Thomas, Mike McKinzie and Jason Craft. All of them over 31 years of age...
