Good read, good post. More Alleman quotes:

"but I haven't lost any of my confidence. It's just a matter of learning the new plays, getting accustomed to everything -- mental reps, physical reps and going from there."

"Everything has been fast-paced, and I have to get acclimated to the heat, too. You can't prepare for the heat and humidity."


The heat will make you its b***h, whether you like it or not.

With Alleman, the Saints got an effervescent, athletic left guard in the third round. Listed at 6 feet 4 and 302 pounds, the Akron product ran a noteworthy 5.07-second 40-yard dash at the NFL combine.

"Alleman's done a good job early on," Payton said. "Those guys are swimming in there, because we're giving the linemen a lot of offense -- and they're getting a lot of defensive fronts. He's handled it well, and he's done a good job of picking up everything we're giving him."

On draft day, Alleman was giddy, rattling off Saints players like a fan, touting himself as "the most athletic lineman in the country."

During his first minicamp, he admitted that it would be a challenge, "but I haven't lost any of my confidence. It's just a matter of learning the new plays, getting accustomed to everything -- mental reps, physical reps and going from there."

I'm just curious, what is it about this kid you guys don't like, me personally I love the kids potential and his attitude, he will end up being a force for us for a long time.

What I thought was interesting was Allemans old coach saying he would make a good center. That made me feel so much better now lets see if he do both by next year.
The others are depth thats all I expect from them. If a starter comes from the group that will be great .If not oh well. Top notch backup is fine with me.

...I don't care if his breath smells like turd and he runs an 8 second 40, as long as he keeps Drew Brees on his feet
