Robinson: Saints best corner by next season's end?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was scrolling through bleacherreport.com because I had nothing else better to do today ( except cut the grass and fix my brother's uverse) and I saw that Robinson is even rated ahead of Greer! Do you think he can ...

I think he will be our best CB by year end. I said that a couple months ago too.

I think he'll be our best corner as soon at camp starts.

Maybe by opening day, but I think Greer still has the vet savvy edge right now.

I also expect to hear much more from Johnny Patrick too.

Yea... and I'm not knocking Greer either. Greer is 30 has hit his ceiling. Robinson will be coming into his down and start peaking. If we can manage a consistent pass rush, I think he's going to ball hawk on the outside.

I'm looking forward to hearing more on Patrick too. I didn't pay too much attention to him while some of you guys were talking about him towards the tail end of last year... hopefully he can nail down that nickel spot and show upside for more.

Robinson obviously has the talent, but I just don't think he's a very good cornerback. He's alright in pass coverage, but I haven't seen a worse tackling cornerback since Deion Sanders. His favorite move is to dive in front of the ballcarrier and hope he trips him.

That sounds more like Porter than anyone else we had last year.

Greer had his fair share of Sanders-like tackles, as did Jenkins.

hopefully Flajole will press the fact that it's okay to wrap up... back to basics

I agree that none of our cornerbacks were laying the wood... but I firmly believe that Robinson was the worst tackler on the team. Hopefully he'll get some form-tackling tips this offseason.
