He doesn’t look back at his first season on a 53-man roster in amazement that he came out of nowhere and finished the season with 983 receiving yards. He looks back and sees how it could have been better.

When watching film of last season, Snead saw a player who was raw in some ways. He wasn’t reading defenses and adjusting as well as he could have. He’d watch himself make a play or run a route and realize that he could have made a bigger play or gotten open if he saw the field better.

“It was (a process last season),” Snead said earlier this week at McDonogh 32, where the Saints were taking part in a Play 60 event. “Just seeing the bigger picture and the whole field at the same time and being able to see the coverage. Just watching a whole bunch of film I see big things I could have got 1,000 yards a lot faster last year. Paying attention to details and working on those corrections is going to be a big part of this year.”

Snead could rest on last season. He played starter snaps and positioned himself as one of the key members of the offense. He could stay the same player and remain a very effective player for this team.

Willie Snead sees missed opportunities.

He doesn’t look back at his first season on a 53-man roster in amazement that he came out of nowhere and finished the season with 983 receiving yards. He looks back and sees how it could have been better.

I like the Sneed, Coleman, and Cooks combo. Pretty dangerous down the field. Each player is good enough to draw double coverage. If defenses try to double each of them that will open up shots down the middle to our massive tight ends, or huge gaps in the run. Can't wait until the season starts. Hopefully it's not hype. GEAUX SAINTS !!!!

He's got a taste of that glory after last year. He's a hard worker and a fearless receiver with better than average skills. Perfect slot guy.

Injuries are probably the only thing that can derail him now. He's arrived, and it looks like he plans to stay a while.

Why? He has already proven himself as our #2 receiver and other than the TE, he's Drew's go-to guy on 3rd down.
