Re: Saints rookie Brandon Coleman's Monday practice opens Sean Payton's eyes

I think we keep 6. I know I said 5 but after looking at the injuries of Toon, Stills and Morgan, I hope for the best but I would want some insurance, just too much liability. Even Coleman had a knee issue in college. Their combined surgeries are likely higher than their combined catches. I kid but seriously we need to keep 6. Coleman don't see it. Nice to have but we need the best on the field.

Re: Saints rookie Brandon Coleman's Monday practice opens Sean Payton's eyes

if we are smart about when we cut Coleman he could end up on PS and then helping later
Pretty risky for another team to pick up a raw player the last week of August, but Carolina does need depth, so who knows

Bill Belichick called him during draft. He picked us because of Payton and Colston. NE could pick him off waivers.

Whoever does pick him up has to stash him on their 53. And since he'd have to learn a completely new playbook, while likely not getting the required reps in practice, I just can't see a team playing the season with basically a 52 man roster.

Besides, I think Seantavious Jones is an equally talented prospect and there's probably a few others out there that Mickey and company have their eyes on for the PS.

Then again it wouldn't shock me if both were cut and not signed to our practice squad at all.

Coleman had nice TD grab yesterday. Dude (at times) looks like Colston out there.

I would love to see him make the team. But if he doesn't I will be happy with whoever makes the team. I just like the size of the guy.

Keep an eye on WR Seantavius Jones as well. He's 6-3, 200 lbs, and ran a 4.5 40. Not blazing fast but fast for a guy his size. He's a project too but a pretty good one. He graded out as a 7th/Priority FA

Re: Saints rookie Brandon Coleman's Monday practice opens Sean Payton's eyes

reminds me of Nick Toon last year. Everyone raved about the guy in camp, and how he was making all the plays. When the big lights turned on he was caught like a deer, couldn't catch a cold to save his life.

2013 Toon = 2014 Coleman

Re: Saints rookie Brandon Coleman's Monday practice opens Sean Payton's eyes

Coleman looks so much like Colston. Aside from height and build even their stride is eerily similar. Unfortunately I'm pretty sure I read that he has small hands. Not a good trait for a dude who's only niche could be that of a possession WR. He better develop impeccable fundamentals. Not impossible but steep odds.
