Yep, our secondary is the problem.
Spags system is built on getting pressure with the front four. So we should not make an effort to build according to the system?
Have you even studied the Saints? Opposing QB's have time to enjoy a clean pocket and wait for their receiver to open up.
Hell, our secondary sucks too, but we have to get a D-line player.

Edit:Seriously??? Malcolm Jenkins has been a valuable first round draft choice? Step away from the crack pipe!

Agreed, there is no pressure up front, I don't think we have horrible corners..... I think we have horrible corners because there's no pressure!!!!! You could eat a whole dunkin doughnut, and drink a latte with the time some of these qbs were getting back there. I think two out of these six picks should be DE's

Even though its true that we need to put pressure on QB for our corners to play better, what about when it's a quick pass and it turns into a 20 yard gain because our DB's are shocking
You can't ask the D line to get pressure on a quick pass, it's our DB's fault for not getting a jam on the WR's and then shoddy tackling after the catch
I think the first two picks should be D line and OLB but we definitley need a ball hawk at corner, Greer is not young anymore and won't be around forever and Robinson for the lack of a better word....sucks

"Ryan......INTERCEPTED....going back the other way with Jabari Greer......TOUCHDOWN....KILLER TOUCHDOWN for the saints!!!"

Rhodes has some nice size at 6-1 and 217, so he would match up better against some of the bigger receivers like Vincent Jackson and Julio Jones.


Xavier Rhodes, CB

Strengths: Imposing size for the cornerback position and a willing hitter, truly enjoying the physical aspect of playing on defense. He is aggressive at the line of scrimmage and works hard to knock receivers off their route while still showing the quickness and footwork to quickly redirect and run with receivers downfield. His length and aggressive nature will make for a good matchup against bigger receivers at the next level.


Weaknesses: Still a little rough around the edges and tends to get too physical in man coverage.
