Is Malcom Jenkins overrated as a starting Free Safety?
He has been school'ed by one of the best F/S to play the game in Darren Sharper and has had ample time to become the player that he was suppose to come. Please post your thoughts!!

Why not post this on the Saints board?

Well, he was only schooled at FS by Sharper during the 2010 season. He really needs a chance to show what he can do under Spags and the new defensive scheme.

I'm new at this. Thanks for the info.

Malcolm has shown great potential. With Flajole and Spagnoulo coaching him he is surely going to improve.

Harper may even surprise us in coverage with some proper coaching...

Personally, I think the move to nickle would suit him best.

I do to. Does not play FS well, maybe to much responsibility. I had high hopes for him to be the FS for the next 10 years but he has not lived up to that from what I have seen.

I think he will have an all or nothing year this year under spags D, I think it's kind of unfair to judge him on GW's garbage D.

He got left out to dry being the only safety back there and GW wouldnt change the scheme

Imagine - teams come out in 4 wides, Jenkins in GW's D was responsible from sideline to sideline about 20 yards deep and he basically had to cover 4 WR's at once whilst watching the deep ball, GW hurt Jenkins play more than Jenkins did, GW's stubbornness to change after it was evident offenses knew what we were doing is what hurt our team

Spags will get him to produce

He looked a lot better when Dennis Allen was here, that's for sure. I think he has potential for greatness at either position, with the right coach and the right surrounding cast. The strip on Roy Williams on Thanksgiving Day was one for the ages. Really, all of these guys in the Saints secondary have basic talent, it's up to the coaches to get the most out of them.

I'm curious to see how he plays with a hint of a pass rush, which we didn't have last year.

Ed Reed would have struggled with our lack of a pass rush last season.
