The two schools of thought are you can either get pressure with 4 and support a suspect coverage unit or you can man up in the secondary and blitz to achieve the pressure. I think that is the focus of Gregg Williams' scheme and that makes this pick make sense.

I knew this pick would be love/hate no matter who we took. All fans have different thoughts on the biggest need. I think the Saints found a pretty raw and athletic guy who they think they can turn into a solid tool for the secondary. We really were exposed last year when Porter and Greer went down. And I fully agree this is already the best and deepest secondary in the history of the team. It is much easier to find linebackers who can attack the passer and stop the run now. A great secondary can offset linebackers who are liabilities in coverage and can be allowed to focus forward only.

I am more than okay with the selection. Had we taken a WR or TE I'd be much upset.
Excellent post. High five to you.

Kindle might get drunk on his way to the first mini-camp. J/K

But if the guy has character issues we probably wouldn't draft him in round 7, much less take a chance on him in rounds 1 or 2. That's just my .02

Re: Patrick Robinson

This sort of reminds me of when we drafted Meachem. No one thought we needed a WR when we took him with our number one pick in 2007. Looking back at it now you'd have to say it worked out allright for us. I'd bet $5 that this one will too.

if you listen closely.....thats what the entire 3 hours worth of draft is anyway

"this guy can really help this team out. hes big physical. has the speed to make the plays. has good hips. strong at the point of attack and can shed blockers. tends to struggle at times against bigger guys."

now who did i just analyze? EVERYBODY TAKEN IN THE FIRST ROUND
