Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

You can have all the damn CB's in the world but if you can't block for Brees and you can't stop the run... it really doesn't matter who you have at CB.

Start rebuilding at the OL and DL if you want to go back to a SB.

Not just you, I feel the same way. An ILB that can contain the inside run while still have a decent grasp of playing in coverage and a well rounded OLB hat would open the door for Cam Jordan and Junior(Who I don't think will get suspended after reports the accuser fabricated her report) to rush the QB. Also, if we can get a DE opposite of Jordan that can disrupt plays on the outside that would be nice. I like Hicks but I like him more in the middle.

Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

I think CB is easily the #1 need on defense. But that doesn't mean we don't need any front 7 help.

We need at least 1 good player to add to the D-line, LB's and secondary.

Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

It all starts up front. A CB is way down on my priority list.

Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

Obviously we need people up front but it doesn't matter if the opposing QB can just immediately toss the ball up for a completion. On the rare occasions we got pressure this year or when we all out blitzed it didn't matter because anyone besides Lewis was immediately beaten in coverage. Having a shutdown corner in the CB 2 slot gives the team the option to rush with four and all out blitz.

Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

We have average to above average players up front, but we have a glaring weakness at that #2 CB spot.

I'm sure we address all of them.

Re: Ranking Saints needs: No. 1 cornerback

1st we need a CB
2nd we need an ILB
3rd we need a NT

That is just on defense.

O-line is without a doubt my #1 priority.....but not necessarily my first pick
