Brandon Coleman shining in OTA's

I really like to hear this news considering our options at WR!!

New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandon Coleman has made the exact opposite impression on me through two weeks of organized team activities than he had all offseason going into 2014.

Last year, Coleman struggled with the offense and consistency catching the football was nonexistent. Both of those facets have improved dramatically during the first two weeks of OTAs. Coleman came up with several receptions Thursday during first-team drills to drive the point home.

Coleman nabbed a deep ball from Drew Brees as safety Kenny Vaccaro lost him coming off the line as an inside receiver. Coleman picked up another nice reception on a back shoulder throw from rookie Garrett Grayson with cornerback Kyle Wilson in coverage.

Coleman's most impressive play wasn't his flashiest. The Saints wideout outmaneuvered Keenan Lewis in one-on-one coverage on a crossing route to pick up another pass connection with Brees.

"The first thing we evaluate is does the player know what to do," Saints coach Sean Payton said after Thursday's practice. "Those guys in their second year are getting aligned quicker.

"If you know what to do, it's a lot easier or you have a lot better chance of doing it than if you're struggling getting in and out of the huddle and what route you have. They're playing with the knowledge of the offense and you can see that in their play."

It's very early, but no longer does Coleman appear to be just some 6-foot-6 guy you're hoping can become something. He's getting past that point with each practice.

I'm hearing Seantavious Jones is also kicking butt as well.

Trying not to get too over hyped, but it ain't working for me at all.

If there was a year that we needed them both to start making plays, this is definitely the year!

The competition for starting spots isn't huge so I'm glad to hear they are both making the most of the snaps they are getting!

Since he beat Vaccaro, does that mean KVac sucks donkey kongs now?

He also beat Keenan Lewis! Lol

On the link it said Vaccaro made a really good defensive play to bat the ball away from Ben Watson the play before he got beat!

Here's to hoping it'll carry over to when they take things up to full contact - Nick Toon also needs to finally step up or it'll be the end for his career with the Saints and probably the NFL.

Yeah and Arrington and Toon always looked great as well. It's a good sign for sure, but don't climax just yet.
