Re: saints looking to trade up for mckelvin

while i think the biggest need is to draft a CB i doubt that they will move up specifically for him because of the depth at CB this year in the draft...if he is gone i think we will be content with DRC but i would love to see them be aggressive about drafting someone....the saints have tendencies to let their highest rated players get away from them

i believe that the 2 corners best suited for the saints system are DRC and McKelvin...they are very speedy and can cover man to man as well as nebody....in a saints defense that consists a lot of 4-3 and nickel defenses....we are going to need a CB who wont get beat deep and has great recovery speed....both of these CBs have that speed and have the height and talent to contend on a pro level....ideally i think we need a bump and run press corner....unfortunately the best 2 corners in this draft dont allow for that but we will make do and draft one of two great corners

Well put. I like Flowers as a potential second round pick as well. He is not in the same class as these corners, is probably better at zone coverage, and doesnt have the timed speed but he has been a stalwart on a great Hokies defense the past 2 seasons. 31 pass break ups in two seasons shows he can cover. Cason, Porter, and Lee are others I like in the 2nd.
