White Says He is Eager for Opportunity in New Orleans
 
1 Attachment(s)
Q: Does it excite you to know that you are coming to a place that has had success taking a chance on smaller school players?
A: “The Saints are a great team. They do a great job in the draft every year. It doesn’t matter where you come from, big school or small school. As long as you, the player, have the right intentions going in to camp, you will be fine.”

Q: How much cornerback did you play? Do they see you as a safety?
A: “I played three years of corner. I am not sure, I haven’t talked to them yet. I am sure they will try me out at corner first and maybe move me to safety later on down the road.”

Q: Did you play safety or corner last year?
A: “Corner.”

Q: Can you talk about the combine experience and what you did to prepare? How do you think you did?
A: “It was a great experience. Just to be around the top players in the nation, it was a great experience. I feel like I did very well in all of the categories, in all of the position drills. And the interviews. I did well in all of it. I felt good about the combine.”

Q: What did you run in the 40-yard dash at the combine?
A: “4.47 at the combine.”

Q: What about at your pro day?
A: “4.40 flat.”

Q: Where are you today and who are you with? Did you expect to be drafted around this time?
A: “We expected to be drafted in the fifth or sixth round. I am at home in Atlanta right now with my family. Proud to be a Saint.”

Q: Do you think your athleticism stands out?
A: “Yeah, definitely. I feel like I can play anywhere in the secondary including special teams. I feel like I am a ballhawk. I am going to go get the ball if it’s in the air.”

Good confidence in himself. Hope he backs it up with great play.

This answer made me chuckle:

Q: Are you looking forward to going against Drew Brees in practice?
A: “Oh yeah. It’s going to be fun picking off some balls from Drew Brees. It is going to be real fun.”

Just from the feel I get I would probably try him at FS. That would allow Jenkins to move to nickle where I think he would do better.

I just hope he can deal with the disappointment, LOL

This guy has confidence in his abilities, I'll give him that:

Q: Who would you compare yourself to in the NFL today?
A: “Charles Woodson. I feel like he is a complete defensive back. He can do it all: tackle, cover, zone player, man player, he can do it all. I like to compare myself to him.”

The little tape the showed on him looked promising. As long as he works hard and is a fast learner this shows some upside.

yeah i just read a of his pro day reviews, despite a solid combine he ran everything they asked him to do. that alone says something.

He's confident in his abilities, he'll probably get beat by our WR's in camp for a while but he stays confident and I think he could contribute

If we work him out at SS, Harper may see reduced time if this guy is better in coverage - he's labelled himself as a ball hawk, something we've been missing for a while, let's see if he can prove it

Danno 04-29-2012 08:11 AM

He certainly thinks like a CB. I like that in DB's.

I think he's destined to become a safety, but if the staff can coach him up he may make a good nickel/dime back.
