We may end up with another developmental CB in the draft and continue building the front 7 on both sides of the ball during the rest of the draft.

Re: A one in three chance of the saints taking a corner

Saints' stockpile of corners will get trimmed in camp

The Saints decided not to splurge on a bank-breaking deal for CB Asante Samuel earlier in free agency and have instead chosen to add lower-tier CBs Randall Gay and, most recently, Aaron Glenn to the secondary in an effort to eliminate holes before the draft. Sean Payton doesn’t want to feel like he absolutely has to pick from one position group on Draft Day, but even though the team's depth at cornerback is solid, there is still a good chance New Orleans will spend a pick in the top three rounds on a corner, with the hope of landing a playmaker, according to team insiders. The Saints currently have eight corners on their roster, and six of them have a legitimate shot at making the team as major contributors. Sources say Gay, Mike McKenzie and Usama Young appear to be roster locks. Potentially on the bubble are Glenn, Jason David and Jason Craft. New Orleans made a major investment in David last offseason, and observers say he ranges anywhere from the team’s No. 1 corner to the odd man out. David looked lost outside of the cover-2 last season, but if he can make the adjustment to man coverage, he’s a safe bet to stick around. That would leave a battle between Glenn and Craft for a spot as the nickel or dime corner. However, if the Saints spend a draft pick on a rookie who shows he’s prepared to contribute immediately, both Glenn and Craft could become expendable.

A Talib, CB Kansas, didn't show for an appointment with Dallas (per profootballtalk.com)...he'll be lucky if he gets picked in Round 3 if he keeps up with this stuff...

Re: A one in three chance of the saints taking a corner

I'm starting to wonder if A. Talib is all there in the head. It's seems like he is on a mission to single handedly destroy his draft stock. I don't like this guy at all and I think his play on the field is a bit overrated but if he's still around in the third round he could be a steal. Despite his big mouth and bad attitude he's still a big ballhawking corner. He's a little on the slow side so he might have to move to safety.

If he fell to us in the third would you guys want us to take him? I want to say no but as much help as we need in the secondary he could be a bargain.

With these stunts I doubt we take him. He has the skills to become on the greats at FS, IMO. He just is ???????? got me.
