No matter what the position, Harper really needs to be in the box and not in deep pass coverage. I am fine with putting him in at LB in certain situations, I am not sure he would make an ideal every down LB. Good job to the coaching staff on this move, gotta put people in positions to succeed and not fail.

Re: New Orleans Saints Roman Harper could see more time at linebacker

I am in favor of this, Harper is better in run support. He can't cover receivers over the top but he could go man 2 man with a TE. We can now move Corey White to SS to see how that goes.

Can I bring up some more ways to help out this defense, since we are now playing a zone defense can't Spags move Jenkins to nickel corner and Let White and Quddus play the safety slots. This team needs a shake up.

Re: New Orleans Saints Roman Harper could see more time at linebacker

ok here is my response to harper moving to WILL

http://blackandgold.com/saints/51419...ez-wilson.html (Spags were is Martez Wilson ????)

I personal think harper is done as a saint and Jenkins should slide into the SS position and saints either draft or go after a top flight FS in FA

The sad part about this theory is the saints traded a undisclosed draft pick for Ruud and have already had there second round draft pick taken away from them due to bountygate. Just exactly when are they supposed to draft anybody? Even if the Saints go 3-13 and happen to be the worst team in the league this year they still dont get to pick first. Looks like we could really use some rookie free agent research right now. I would start watching film from preseason and find some breakout players on the other teams practice squads that want to be starters. Just a thought, but arent there quite a few options out there? There has to be a reason why the teams keep those players around.

Where do you get the information for the draft picks? Also there is no guarantee that they didnt trade that pick for Ruud.

For Ruud?? Are you serious..
That dude wouldn't garner a 7th round choice much less a 1st.
