Who'll be our #2 CB?

I was looking over the updated roster (minus Ambrose), and started wondering (again) who'll be our #2 corner going into this season.

Obvously McKenzie stays at #1, but the #2 spot looks wide open - and not terribly encouraging. The candidates are:

Fakhir Brown
Jason Craft
Fred Thomas
* Dwight Smith can also play corner

Brown played pretty well toward the end of last season and probably deserves a shot at the starting job. Craft - who once started with the Jaguars - signed a four-year deal earlier this offseason, which may signify that the Saints believe he's finally ready to start. Thomas simply doesn't seem to have it anymore and - if retained - is probably better suited for special teams and extra DB sets. Smith can play corner, but one wonders if he wouldn't be better utilized at safety (especially now that Tebucky Jones is gone).

My gut tells me Fakhir Brown will get the job. What do you guys think? Also, is it possible the Saints will finally address the CB position in the draft?

I really like Craft as a nickle corner, and he\'s a great contributor on special teams (remember who caused that fumble vs. the Raiders when Bockwoldt got his TD?), but the Saints really haven\'t given him many opportunities to prove himself as the #2 corner. By all rights he should be ready to take over by now ... don\'t know what the problem is.

One thing\'s for sure, we\'d better hope everyone stays healthy or we\'re gonna be hurting in the secondary, especially at CB.

Don\'t be surprised if this is our first pick in the draft. You know the Saint\'s usually pick someone that you would never expect.

You can\'t win without Hurricanes on the roster. LOL

Woodson...

Ok, seriously, I\'d put my money on Brown. He looked pretty good in a couple of games, and I think he\'s got the tools.

I notice that Andre Dyson is still available, perhaps his price will be bottoming out soon?

Also, I wouldn\'t be surprised if we drafted a CB, but I doubt it will be one of the top three. Does anyone think Webster would start over Brown if we got him in the third? I think there is a chance we get him.

PS - I like Buchannon better than Woodson anyway...

I think it\'s Phillip Buchanon. I honestly think that trade will happen on draft day. If not then Brown
