I'd rather see more of a LS/RS composition where both Jenkins and A-Q would take the field at the same time than see A-Q replace Jenkins as the FS, but I do think that Harper should be a starter at SS with Jenkins at FS.

If we did go with a left-right cover two type safety set-up, thats a good combo. Thats not a real good fit for Harper. It would be similar to placing Vilma into a 3-4. They can both do it, but its not where their strength lies at all.

With L-R safeties, our LB's are gonna have to cover those RB's and TE's, which may now be an option since we've upgraded all 3 LB positions.

If Jenkins our1st round pick plays anything like he did last year, you know the deer in the headlights type of play that he does, bench him. Quaddus is much more natural at FS. Jenkins has gone from corner to FS and has had the luxury of being schooled under one of the greatest FS to play the game in Sharper, so if he doesn't improve and when I say improve I mean by leaps and bounds, what do we really have. Answer: Nothing!!

I'm gonna have to say stick with Strief at RT. Our O-line dropped off significantly when Strief got hurt for a few games last season and Brown filled in.

A couple people have mentioned that they feel that OT depth is needed. Which I do agree with, however, there are other holes that are more important. However, the 1 name that I just thought of was Alex Barron. I know the Saints brought him in last year as a FA, then he got injured and never played a game, but where is he now, and did he / does he have anything left in the tank?

If these players are our projected roster after training camp, we stand at a count 51, 52 if we keep two kickers which is not likely...

We are very thin at Cornerback, Offensive Line...

Could use more depth at Tight End, Defensive Tackle, Safety...

Two fullbacks?

LB depth has turned around quickly

Where does Martez Wilson make his check?

Is Hartley through as our Kicker?
