He does stand out when he's on the field.

There was a lot of movement and speed in that trio - especially by the OLBs -and it was a joy to watch in that regard after the somewhat immobile LB corps the Saints have had the past two seasons.

I just hope he can stay healthy long enough to actually be a contributor in this year's defense.
That wasn't the position he played. The starting line-up was:
Slb-Shanle
Mlb-Lofton
Wlb- Herring

Casillas comes out in the nickle package on the 3rd play when he slots in next to Lofton at Wlb. When they go back into the base 4-3 Herring comes out taking his place at Wlb. The first series is a mixture of this, but the only time Casillas sees the field is in nickle at Wlb.

Second series is the same as above.

Third series the 2nd string D comes in line-up is:
Slb-Herring
Mlb-Chamberlain
Wlb-Shanle

Nickle package is Shanle and Chamerlain.

1st QTR ends.

Forth series looks the same...

Fifth series is when Casillas gets to play with the base D.
Slb- Herring
Mlb-Chamberlain
Wlb-Casillas

He is a great Wlb in my opinion but Hawthorne will be at that position. Chamberlain looked great as did Herring so I could see one of them take the Slb slot from Shanle.
