Saints select Corey White, S, in the 5th round

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Seems like his listed weaknesses are all coach-able problems. If his footwork is slow and he stutter steps in transition and still runs a 4.47, he could easily be a 4.3 or so after proper coaching....

Probably a depth pick and special teams contributer, but who knows maybe he outplays roman Harper when it comes to coverage (not harpers strength) and could win the starting spot

Uh oh...

Mitch posted this in another thread...

Per Walter football...

162. Corey White, S, Samford: D Grade
I don't give out F grades on Day 3. If I did, this would be an F. No major big board had Corey White in the top 500. I didn't think he would even be a priority UDFA.

But I wonder if his draft grades were as a CB instead of a safety?

Don't really care about any one else's board besides ours... especially a mock draft football site(though one I do like).

We probably would have graded out higher if you drafted a name safety like George Iloka. But at the end of the day, his and everyone's elses draft grade isn't worth a single penny.

Dont see how we were drafting BPA when this dude wasn't even the BPA at his position. This pick stinks. A poor mans Roman Harper. Good in run support, terrible in coverage.

And if you look at it objectively, everyone sees film on him as a CB not as a safety, so that has to be what he's graded on.

I look for him to boom/bust in 2013 or even 2014.

Worst case is he plays special teams, which he played well in college.

With Aikeem Hicks and this Safety, it looks like Smith and Harper will be suspended.

Oh, well.

OK, then he's a Saint and I hope he does well in Spags defense. Safety seems to be where he will land. I'm not overly excited about him......I just he shows up at TC and fits the mold for a safety. We don't have a Sharper to show him the ropes.
