Saints Camp Report: Day 13

A daily review of the hot topics coming out of New Orleans Saints training camp:

Are people tired of hearing about Brandin Cooks' daily exploits yet? I honestly don't think that we in the media are over-hyping the Saints' rookie receiver. He simply makes one or two of the biggest plays on the practice field every day. As quarterback Luke McCown said Monday, "He's got next level speed ... and quickness. We find him in positions where he's just separating from guys regularly." That was absolutely the case again Monday during an otherwise-sloppy practice in the rain. As Cooks said, he's from Corvallis, Oregon, so he's used to this weather. Cooks had two breakaway plays for big gains on short passes -- once cruising about 75 yards for a touchdown on a screen pass. Cornerback Keenan Lewis valiantly gave chase the whole way but didn't really have a chance. "He's a special player," McCown said. "I think that's easily recognized for any amount of time you spend watching him. He's a smart, heady player that you only have to teach a certain route or step or technique once, and he's got it down, and he begins to operate like a veteran. So the sky's the limit for that kid."

Two other rookies who haven't made an overwhelming amount of highlights during camp had arguably their biggest moments to date Monday -- safety Vinnie Sunseri and linebacker Khairi Fortt. Sunseri made a great diving interception during full-team drills (after Fortt probably would have had a sack on the same play if they were live tackling). Sunseri also broke up a deep pass intended for tight end Josh Hill. Fortt also had another would-be sack.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

Re: Saints Camp Report: Day 13

Did anyone else notice how many rookie LSU Tigers looked great this weekend? And many were late round picks. Why won't we ever draft em? Jarvis Landry looked great and we picked Baptiste when he was still on the board. Landry will have a great NFL career and Baptiste will be a career backup at best. He looked terrible against the Rams.

Re: Saints Camp Report: Day 13

Ok I'll be more specific. He looked too slow to be an NFL corner and you can't coach speed. There's a reason most corners are 6 ft or under. There's not many Richard Shermans out there. And this guy is a mediocre tackler so I don't see him switching to safety. There were others on the field I don't see playing in the NFL. Brandon Coleman for example. But Baptiste was a 2nd or 3rd round pick right?

Re: Saints Camp Report: Day 13

And my main point was that we won't pick LSU players. Jeremy Hill, Alfred Bleu, Ego Ferguson, Jarvis Landry and even a WR named Wright looked good this weekend. I just think keeping some of the local talent in town is a great idea.

Well apparently there is another; Baptiste and Sherman's combine results were exactly the same.

Richard Sherman*|*Stanford,*CB*:*2011 NFL Draft Scout Player Profile
Stanley Jean-Baptiste*|*Nebraska,*CB*:*2014 NFL Draft Scout Player Profile

Give the kid a chance before you start assuming; assumptions are the mother of all ****-ups... He could be as good as Sherman in the next couple of seasons for all you know, but I guess that's why your not on the Saints staff

Re: Saints Camp Report: Day 13

I guess judging a rookie getting toasted by Tavon Austin one of the quickest in the league is a bit harsh. I just wanted Jarvis Landry real bad.
