Re: 2012 New Orleans Saints Depth Chart

2012 New Orleans Saints [Source: NewOrleansSaints.com]

Note: Starters; Rookies; Status Injured, Suspended, Uncertain

QB Drew Brees; Chase Daniel
FB Jed Collins; Korey Hall
RB Pierre Thomas; Darren Sproles, Mark Ingram, Chris Ivory, Travaris Cadet

Only surprise here was that Saints kept two (2) fullbacks and that with Cadet sure to make the team as well; had predicted Hall would be cut in that scenario; we've got the best QB, FB, and RB corps in the league...

WR Marques Colston; Courtney Roby, Adrian Arrington
WR Lance Moore; Devery Henderson, Joe Morgan
TE Jimmy Graham, David Thomas, Daniel Graham

Several big surprises; I've pulled for Arrington since the Saints traded back into the draft to get him and I thought he was as good as what we were getting out of First Round Bust from Tennessee Robert Meachem; this season, with the injury, I was very frustrated with Arrington and thought with Toon drafted, he was vulnerable - well good for him. Despite the fumbling Morgan showed that speed after a couple of five yard hitch routes that really just jumped out at you; and with Morgan making the team and Sproles as the primary return man on kickoffs and punt returns - I thought Roby was done - I don't mind being wrong when a guy gets to keep his job because he's done what was asked of him; Graham was also a surprise, but he can block and is a good veteran presence...

LT Jermon Bushrod; Charles Brown
LG Ben Grubbs; Eric Olsen
C Brian De La Puente
RG Jahri Evans
RT Zach Strief; Marcel Jones

Kind of what I expected; guess they gave up on Tennant - would like to get more insight on that; glad Tiller was kept on IR - he'll be another diamond in the rough found late for the Saints. Talent at Tackle is not overwhelming, our starters would be top shelf depth is how I look at it - but in today's salary cap world, you pick your poison; do not like how thin we are at Guard and Center, but we'll make adjustments if needed...

LDE Cam Jordan; Junior Galette
LDT Brodrick Bunkley; Akiem Hicks
RDT Sedrick Ellis; Tom Johnson, Tyrunn Walker
RDE Will Smith; Turk McBride, Martez Wilson

Only surprise was releasing Ayodelle and keeping Walker; hoping Martez Wilson is the breakout player of the year and Jordan can become the first rounder talent we had all hoped; preseason is what it is, but will we finally get a top twelve, respectable pass rush?!? This will be the biggest difference maker to the Saints going to the dance...

SLB Scott Shanle; Will Herring
MLB Curtis Lofton; Barrett Ruud
WLB David Hawthorne; Jonathan Casillas

Curious that with the Barrett Ruud signing that Humber isn't listed on depth chart; well I'm going on record to say that while Shanle is not the most gifted athlete, and many here have a target on his back, I'm glad for Shanle as he's a guy that brings his lunch pail and just works his @$$ off!

And I think the Spagnuolo schemes will show that Shanle's a good pro; If Vilma wins his appeal, I will be curious to see who becomes expendable in this corps. Never really sold on Casillas (injuries, gameplay disclipline), but I'm glad he's a Saint and will cheer him on...

LCB Jabari Greer; Johnny Patrick
SS Roman Harper; Jonathon Amaya
FS Malcolm Jenkins; Isa Abdul-Quddus
RCB Patrick Robinson; Corey White, Elbert Mack

Marquis Johnson (knee) is a tough break, he showed promise; last season he was out with a lacerated spleen; Elbert Mack showed some grit; if not for the Johnson injury, Mack might be gone -that's the NFL; that was the only thing I had different; early on, thought that either Gumbs or Jerico Nelson had shown they have real pro potential. I am not a big fan of Roman Harper, his liability in pass coverage, and his overpaid salary slot; in fact, I think Malcolm Jenkins at Strong Safety and a more natural Free Safety would produce dramatic, positive results for this defense; yes, I too still miss Darren Sharper; but, after my days of watching Toi Cook, it's nice to have this talent at CB...

P Thomas Morstead
K Garrett Hartley
LS Justin Drescher; Jed Collins
KR Darren Sproles
PR Darren Sproles

Gotta say, I was hoping to keep the old man; I know he's made some kicks, but I don't trust Hartley and if this team didn't have the best quarterback on the planet right now - he would have been released because of his shakiness in the 30-45 yard range...

Suspended/Reserve: DE Will Smith, LB Jon Vilma, Ramon Humber

Injured Reserve: DE Greg Romeus, LB Chris Chamberlain, RB Joe Banyard, S Jose Gumbs, OG Andrew Tiller, WR Nick Toon, OT Fenuki Tupou, CB Marquis Johnson, WR Chris Givens

Several of the guys on IR were wisely placed there; I really look forward to seeing Romeus, Tiller, Chamberlain, Toon, and Johnson play for the Black and Gold; got my balls busted on Toon, my butcher had the scoop and I kept faith and waited to be vindicated...

Practice Squad: Awaiting Waivers/Contract Offers

Conclusion: This is one of the best rosters that I have ever seen the Saints field; especially like the small school love; it's not rocket science, but I was glad to see Loomis and Coaching Staff address the front seven with the Martez Wilson move (Big Key) and the FA influx of talent, skill at LB...

My name is Inigo Montoya, you suspended our coach, prepare to have your @$$E$ Kicked...

Now Give Us Back Our Head Coach You Sons A Beotches!

Hope all you that were impacted by the storm recover safely and are back to whatever normal is - it could have been worse and we could've got our @$$es handed to us down here in Houma...

God Bless, Be Safe, Geaux Saints!

Re: 2012 New Orleans Saints Depth Chart

I said it in many threads recently that they would not cut Hall, because he is McMahon's golden boy and can step right in to replace Collins if he gets hurt.

They really do need a backup FB for Kromer's running schemes and while David Thomas can presumably play as a FB, I wouldn't want to put him there with his recent troubles with concussions.

Good points about the blocking scheme and Thomas...

Re: 2012 New Orleans Saints Depth Chart

S Jerico Nelson and G Ricky Henry so far to the Saints Practice Squad...

Released/Cut/Former Saints:

C Matt Tennant claimed by Patriots

C Brian Folkerts claimed by Bucs

Nice player to have had:

LB Tank Carder (drafted by Bills) claimed by Browns

DB Drayton Florence DEN, formerly BUF claimed by DET

Players of note:

TE Kellen Winslow SEA, formerly TB, was cut; guess the U Alum aka F**KING SOLDIER had nothing left...

LB Bobby Carpenter, NE, formerly DAL, was cut; he's vested but could be signed after Week 1 so that his contract isn't guranteed - but who'll sign him if the Saints wanted him?!?
