going with only 2 QBs is a going trend this year. New Orleans makes the 10th team with only 2 if I count right. Reasoning is that if you get to needing QB #3 your team is SOL anyway. Most find a youngster to float on the practice squad which Bouman couldn't.

Deloach could be a nice pickup. He started 13 games for the Giants last season and was really solid. He's tall and somewhat fast, at least fast enough to stay with most wr's and big enough to win jump balls He is a young corner, though, and needs to learn better technique and to read situational routes. He had a dismal training camp considering he was considered to be a lock at starting DB, though it was a tough call to cut him, evidently. Coughlin can be a real erectile tissue, especially when you've made a mistake-one guy got cut in the last round simply for having one fumble LAST year. Curtis might like the opportunity with the Saints. He'll definitely have the goods over Craft, so he'll be there for a nickel package at the very least.

So glad Branch cleared waivers. He's going to be a tremendous rb if he gets the slightest chance.

Good f---ing bye Bouman. Somehow the world seems a bit more sane.

Is it my imagination, or did we only sign ONE o-lineman??? And put Mayberry on IR for the SEASON?? Brees is going to get hurt on the third real snap from scrimmage!!!

CURTIS DELOATCH
Position: S
Class:
School: Ncat
Conference: -
Ht., Wt.: 6'2½, 214
40 Time: 4.52

BIO: Totaled 21/4/8 as a senior, spending most of his time at cornerback. Struggled through an injury-plagued junior campaign and posted only 14/1/6 on the corner. All-American return specialist as a sophomore when he averaged 26.5-yards on 20 punt returns, bringing five back into the end zone for scores.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized athlete who never capitalized on a big sophomore season. Out muscles opponents defending the throw and easily brings ball carriers down on initial contact. Displays good range defending the throw and fluid turning his hips. Improved his reads as a senior and did not have as many mental breakdowns.

NEGATIVES: Lacks explosion, quickness and speed for cornerback. Prefers to side-shuffle rather than backpedal. Considered an underachiever, never took his game to the next level.

ANALYSIS: An imposing specimen, DeLoatch impacts the game with bone crushing hits or long punt returns yet seems content getting by with natural abilities. Must immediately turn up the intensity to have a shot in the NFL.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent

He has seen more and more playing time and seems to be improving

DeJuan Groce
Position: Cornerback
College: Nebraska
Height: 5-10
Weight: 192
Hometown: Garfield Heights, Ohio

Career Notes | Agility | High School | Personal | Stats

ANALYSIS
Positives: Has above-average straight-line speed … Shows a burst and acceleration to catch up with receivers on deep routes … Very aware of his assignments working in the zone, understanding route concepts well … Shows the hand/eye coordination to stick his hand in to break up the pass … Has natural hands for the interception and also to field punts … Can break down, wrap up and secure as a tackler, showing the willingness to throw his body around in run support … Uses his leaping ability to serve as a gunner on the punt-coverage unit … Shows the ability to latch and trail the receiver through routes … Sees combo routes develop, throwing the shoulder to make the tackle or knock the receiver off stride.
Negatives: Does not look smooth in his backpedal, keeping too wide of a wide base, making him appear choppy in transition … Often ends up stumbling and struggling when trying to plant and drive … Late reading the quarterback and does not have the recovery speed to catch up when beaten … Does not have the change-of-direction agility to stay with the receiver after the opponent makes his cuts … Lacks explosive leaping ability and will generally get out-muscled going up for the ball … Allows the catch too often, rarely making a play on the ball … Seems very reluctant to come up and support against the run, allowing himself to get blocked out too often … Not a big striker or hitter … When he tries to jam the receiver, he falls off his hits and struggles to recover … Does not show proper hip turn in his transition … Bites on double moves and gets turned around by play action.
