this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I don't care if you run a 4.3, if your reaction time is slow you will not make many plays. But you can run a 4.9 and have good instincts and reaction time you will constantly put yourself in place ...

Speed is over rated

I don't care if you run a 4.3, if your reaction time is slow you will not make many plays. But you can run a 4.9 and have good instincts and reaction time you will constantly put yourself in place to make more plays. Payton wants football playas, I don't think he is as impressed with 40 times. Hasslet on the other hand was all about how they did in the combine. I bet Payton didn't draft him because of his 40 time, he must see a football playa ready to bust out. If not no one will remember it anyway, because 7th round picks are long shot to make the team.

but you can't measure the heart until he is on the field so until he gets on the field... you can't call him the next Ray Lewis either.

The kids a 7th round pick nothing more, lets hold off judging him until we see how he looks during training camp. Besides if he proves to be worthy of making the final roster cool, it just strengthens our team if not, no biggie.

Well put. Why didn't someone write that 3 pages ago?

This guy is still barely 50-50 to even make the team. If he does not shine on special teams in training camp, he has no shot.

What are we debating anyways? He's slow... that's a fact. I don't think anyone hear said he can't make the team and can't turn out to be a solid player. I don't think anyone said he doesn't have good football instinct. He just has a lot of work to do.

You post the quote where Payton said "HE KNEW"... I dare you! That is not what Payton said, he said he had no idea what they had in Colston.

CALM DOWN, CALM DOWN

I really don't know why any of us second guess Coach Payton.

If he is not satisfied with someones performance, they won't make the cut.

If he starts Fred at CB, by God, he knows something we don't.

Until Coach Payton fails, I'm not going to worry about anything.
