What now at corner?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; We'll sign a CB or 2 in free agency, but not any of the top guys like Verner, Grimes or Munnerlyn. Especially considering we need to replace or resign 2 O-Linemen and a free safety....

Re: What now at corner?

As long as we can maintain our pass rush, we can make do with any whichever way we decide to go. If it's via free agency, I don't feel as if we need to spend lavishly. If it's via draft, I don't feel as if we have to spend our first round pick on a corner. Who knows... the answer may already be on our roster. It's certainly an area of concern, but not as big as what it's perceived to be in my opinion.

We don't want anything to do with Captain Munnerlyn. He sucks.

I am very comfortable with Lewis/Robinson/White and a top rookie. Maybe even see about bringing back Tracy Porter who had a bounceback year in Oakland playing the nickel. Or somebody like Cassius Vaughn who has starting experience and good ball skills.

CB EJ Gaines in the third round.

I guess I'll put the rest of the draft class on here...
1st Round S Clinton-Dix
2nd Round DE Stephon Tuitt
4th Round ILB Shayne Skov
5th Round OT Seantrel Henderson
6th Round OLB/DE Larry Webster

Patrick Robinson will get his chance to start, he was the starter before he was injured in the preseason...

White will compete with him for that spot and they draft one in the mid rounds for depth

Given the CB depth in this draft we don't need to go out and spend the first round pick on one, plus it's going to be a buyer's market again for vets. That being said, we can get some depth in FA for a good price and the mid rounds of the draft, plus we still have Robinson and White.

Hated seeing Greer go. I know he's a toss up on if he can play at the same level but I really hope he finds his way back. He was always solid.

I'm not sure how much stock you put into ProFootballFocus, but according to them Munnerlyn was actually very good this season.

I do remember Carolina fans hating on him when he was their #2 CB a couple years ago, but I think they moved him down to slot CB, and it seems like he's thriving at that position. I think Munnerlyn would be a great addition, personally. Lewis and White as #1 and #2 CBs with Munnerlyn in the slot? Hell yeah.

Maybe "sucks" is a strong word, but he's basically only good at nickel. We don't need a #3 corner. We might need a #2, depending on whether or not you think one of White or Robinson is up to the task.
