WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. You cant see it for his helmet, of course, but Saints cornerback Corey White is sporting a yellowish Mohawk these days.

Maybe that will help him stand out in a crowd.

White may be going into his third season, but he readily admits hes seldom recognized by fans. And when his name comes up, its usually in connection with replacing a better-known player, just as last season when he started the final six regular-season games plus the two playoff games, acquitting himself well in place of Jabari Greer.

And this time, with Champ Bailey still sidelined, its White whos running neck-and-neck with Patrick Robinson for the starting role.

I just work, White, a 2012 fifth-round draft pick out of Samford, said after Mondays morning practice session. I dont look at the numbers or worry about where I should play or if I should play.

I just go out and do the best I can.

There are scores of players like White in the NFL: low-round draft picks, often from small schools of whom not that much is expected until the occasion demands it.

They may never reach superstar status, but its a way to last in the league.

Any time you get experience, it helps a lot, White said. My confidence is a lot better than it was last year.

This is good because I think he's the best tackler on the team.

If CB doesn't work out for him, safety is definitely a spot I can see him switching too. Unfortunately we're loaded at safety.

Keep him at NB for now, he excells there and lets see if he can improve his CB skills.

I'm a fan. Last season he was thrown to the wolves and with Lewis on the other side, who else would opposing QBs pick on (besides Hawthorne)?

This is the year things slow down for him. Yep - NB is the spot not CB #2.

Re: Lewis: Cornerback Corey White works to find fit with Saints

You gotta be impressed that when the season started he was 4th on the depth chart and by the second half of the season, he was a starting cornerback on the #2 pass defense in the league.

I think he handled it great.

I like him. He progressed well last year even when he was getting picked on. If someone goes out I think he can step up without a horrid drop off.

All I remember is him saying he was ready to intercept Drew when he first got to TC. Has he ever fulfilled that dream? I'm not knocking him..........rookies.

Re: Lewis: Cornerback Corey White works to find fit with Saints

IMO, White is now a legitimate #2 corner in the league. You are not going to find many second-year corners playing as well as he did last year, not even the first-rounders. He's got the same talent and playing style as Keenan Lewis. I see a star in the making which is why I wasn't as high on the Champ Bailey signing as a lot of other people were.
