To get you ready for tonight's New Orleans Saints game against the Houston Texans, check out our poll.

The Associated Press
New Orleans Saints receiver Larry Beavers had a big game against New England.
With the surprising performance from Larry Beavers for the Saints against the New England Patriots in the first preseason game, it got us to thinking, who could be the next guy to surprise everyone (OK, everyone but the hardcore Saints fan) in tonight's game?

So we put together a poll and threw out a few names. Those guys, of course, are just a small sample. Please feel free to throw out your own names and tell us why you think they'll show out.


Check out the poll here

Reggie Jones is leading so far.

I forgot about Jones. All I've been hearing nearly all camp is Reggie Jones. He's outperforming our starters, or at least equal to.

Good CB's are so hard to find. We MUST find a way to keep this kid. I doubt we can sneak him to the practice squad. Tampa, Atlanta and Carolina would all snatch this kid up. And with a week of practice against Houston (who need CB's), he'd never clear waivers.

Yer i Think it would be wise to keep him on the active roster, Its great to have depth, especially at the cornerback position. Then he can just step in if needed.

Chris Ivory is who I'm most excited to watch tonight. I saw him run at camp and he looked real good and I'm hoping he comes out strong. If we manage to keep Reggie Jones on the active roster we can in all likely hood say good bye to Gay. I like Gay because he's been reliable when we needed him.

Hard to cut Gay. The guy has been on some winning teams. He's a good luck charm.

Agreed ... Young is likely odd man out.

My pick JImmy Grahm,,,,,and or Jeremy Shockey..the tight ends will probably be a big factor considering the Texans had a hell of a hard time covering the middle last season.
