I think Fred Thomas is going to be our #3 cornerback to start the season, but then I wouldn't be surprised to see Usama or Jones move in there soon afterwards. Otherwise it looks pretty good. I like KK being in front of Bullocks; he went backwards last season while KK was leading the NFL in interceptions by a safety.

I think they are letting Bushrod backup left tackle and letting Strief backup right tackle. Strief filled in for J. Brown for one game at left tackle last year, but that was out of necessity. I agree with KK over Bullocks as well.

I think Meachem will beat out Copper easily, since Devery plays the "Y" reciever, or the slot, there won't be competition there. Copper is #4. Colston mans the X receiver, Devery the Y, and Meachem is the Z receiver.

Alleman is practicing at LG, not RG, and eventually replaces Nesbit at LG! Nesbit has one year left on his contract and is the weak link on a good offensive line. Alleman beats him out in camp...

I also think Palko will be the #3 for awhile. Martin has way too much experience and already knows the offense. Palko may eventually be our #2 QB, but most QB's take a long time to develop. So on opening day, Martin is no. 2 with Palko maybe taking over next year.

On offense, switch Strief and Bushrod to opposite sides. Archibald is the odd man OUT. Alleman beats out Nesbit. Devery is possible trade bait, and Meacham starts. If Pittman stays, Stecker is out. Jamal Branch will back up Karney. Goodwin may have a challenge from Nesbit as the backup center.

On defense, I am not sure the Saints will sign Wistrom as "NOOSH" explained. Boykin is for whatever reason a "favorite child". Whitehead is getting long in the tooth! Fincher will have a tough time making the team this year. Bullocks starts, but is on a short leash! Reis will make Bellamy expendable and KK will make Gleason look over his shoulder. Mitchell will turn heads and make the team! Thomas bids adieau...bye, bye Freddie! We have a new corner in David, but he is pushed very hard by Usama! Usama is the nickle back.

Special teams, bye, bye beerman! Hanson and Weatherford are in a duel...Weatherford wins.

I also look for the Saints to pick up a few DEFENSE (DT's) players once training camp starts and cuts begin.

Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over, over, and over again...and expecting a different outcome!

Call it X receiver, Y, Z, whatever, I don't think Copper starts before Henderson & Meachem.

I did not see Patten listed. If he stays healthy, he makes the team.

Don't we also have a DB in Europe?

I agree with everyone that Freddie should go, but he still practiced with the first team, so who knows? Obviously David will start, so I do not know why he did not get the reps in mini camp

I did call it the X,Y,Z receivers, and the whole point was Copper is NOT a starter. You mixed 2 different posts with your explanation, confusing the argument.

X - Colston
Y (slot) - Henderson
Z - Meachem

If David Jones and Usama Young make the team, then Fred Thomas is gone. There is no way the saints are going to carry 4 RB's so Branch and Stecker are gone. McKnight will be a practice squad player unless Patton is injured during camp. Trev Faulk is not eligible for the practice squad...and just because the Saints want Grant Wistrom, doesnt mean you should put him on the depth chart just yet.
