Patrick Robinson

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I think I would have preferred a LB or DT, but I'm OK with it. Can't ever have too many good DBs (as we saw with all the injuries last year). I think Atlanta stole who we would have picked. ...

I remember thinking that the Morstead pick last year was horrible. I was big time wrong, so I'm going to give the FO a pass that they know what they are doing here...

Re: Patrick Robinson

Wanted Kindle, but more options at CB is fine too.

Re: Patrick Robinson

CB makes sense. 5'11" 195lbs is big for a CB. Williams will straighten him out. Remember, we were not the same when Porter and Greer went down. If Sharper comes back, we have 5 starting CBs.

With the #1 offense in the league, teams will be playing catch up. This allows us to play man other coverages.

Re: Patrick Robinson

I never saw this coming. I've been screaming for a DT or OLBer and we took a corner in the first round. My first thought was will it be Jenkins or Young getting playing time at safety?
We should consider this an excellent chess piece for GW to play with. I guess the coaches have their eye on a later round DT or OLBer.......maybe there is a trade in the works to fill these spots.

Re: Patrick Robinson

Well, although this isn't exactly how I pictured the draft would go (hoping Weatherspoon would drop to us or getting one of the TCU boys or Kindle) I'm not hating this pick. Patrick gives us depth at the cornerback position and allows us to move Malcolm anywhere we want if Darren doesn't resign. Let's just hope we can still get someone of talent tomorrow, hopefully someone like Navarro Bowman who is a first round talent but has a bad attitude. He is a linebacker coming out of Penn State so you know he'll produce.

Please God, don't let this pick bite us in the ass.

Re: Patrick Robinson

I am not going to second guess the pick... History tells me Payton and company know what they are doing. They make great picks and got us a SB so until they return us to the days of the Aints I can't say anything bad about the pick.

I like the idea they are approaching this as teams will have to pass to beat us then lets load up with DB's they like. Go ahead put the ball in the air.

Now trade Jammal Brown for an early 2nd and draft Washington.
