Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

I followed Brandon Cooks for a while in college, very explosive. How is he looking for y'all?

He's having a monster camp.

Some in the press have already dubbed him the leading candidate for offensive rookie of the year.

That being said, it remains to be seen how he'll do in real game situations, but he's been outstanding so far.

Yep and he is only going to get better.

Early on last season there were quite a few fans who wanted to run this young gun out of town. He has shown flashes to be a very productive corner.

Don't get that - White finally gets on the playing field and he improved each game as he gained experience unlike the safeties we used to have who got exposed more and more...

They don't develop if you don't play 'em...

Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

Mike Triplett Blog -

"Three guys who haven't been mentioned too often throughout training camp were singled out for making some nice plays Wednesday -- receiver Robert Meachem and rookie linebackers Khairi Fortt and Ronald Powell. Although younger receivers Brandin Cooks and Nick Toon stood out more earlier in camp, Meachem proved last year that he won't be easily removed from the lineup since he's so reliable as a blocker and deep-route runner. That battle for the fourth receiver job between Meachem and Toon will be compelling all summer. … As for Fortt and Powell, they've battled the age-old issue of trying to play at full speed while still learning and thinking too much. But as they get more comfortable, their athleticism is starting to show up more..."

Contracts for Lofton, Hawthorne are handicapping the defense the way Will Smith, Sedrick Ellis and Roman Harper's contracts limited the defense; gotta get those younger, faster, stronger players on the field...

The saints will remain strapped at MLB since we have done little to address that issue. I still need to see if these mid round picks can stay on the field and pan out.

Re: 2014 Saints Training Camp

Corey is back in the middle i bet. that is were he belongs. i understand the start of camp he was playing outside, since then he has moved back to his nickle and dime position. Prod has stepped in and showed he is ready to play, so that experiment came to end pretty quick. white needs more time before he is ready to try the outside again

Say keep marching him out there now, during the preseason, and see what you got that way you can address needs during the next offseason and/or draft, he only gets better if he gets repetitions...

Saw White as more of a Safety, but the physical press corner may be his ticket...

Hand it to the Saints Staff, they looked like they hit a home run so far on this kid; really, really like his disposition, non-prima-donna attitude...
