Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

Another player not taken because of his size. Drew Brees anyone?

He's bounds better than jalen mills and he was a draft pick barely

I think it's very difficult to be worse than Brian Dixon, I'd rather have Jason David than Dixon, at least David got some picks as well as getting beat.

Harris may be a practice squad player, but I think he shows more promise than atleast 3 guys on that list.

Re: De'vante Harris - UDFA

Swan is one more tap on his noggin away from retirement. The bottom 4 are no more accomplished than any other rookie, so he stands a good chance.

True football player. The type of guy you want and need on your roster. Size has never determined greatness at the CB position.

Totally disagree Dizz, Dixon is a quality reserve cornerback for us; Jason David was just plain awful...

De'vante Harris signing, his size and alma mater (5' 10", 176 lbs) has Defensive Backs Coach Aaron Glenn (5' 9", 183 lbs, Texas A & M) all over it...

Yet another indicator the Saints select draft picks from their own insider network and rarely get out and scout a player...

I think "quality" may be a little too much credit for him, whenever he's been on the field I've only ever seen him get beat.

Agreed that Jason David was terrible and got beat often, but he did notch 6 interceptions in 2008 so in my opinion he's still better than Dixon.

Dixon to me is the Travaris Cadet of the defense, gets all the chances in the world even though he's very average.

Brian Dixon

Ken Crawley

Jairus Byrd
Kenny Vaccaro
Jamarca Sanford
Alden Darby,
Vonn Bell

I look at the list 13 and still hold the belief depth at both Safety and CB position should be filled heavily with Hybrids. I have been sold on this idea for a few years now. Unless your really good at either CB or S you need to be a solid all around DB in todays pass happy NFL
