Been high on him since seeing him in the Browns game. This kid has some good instincts. He's going to be a very good one for us

Well, I truly hope upon hope it's Lattimore given the health state of our CB's, and a great LT is worth their weight in gold, but I chose Alvin (!) because I think he's really going to flourish here in NO.

the most value... I don't care who you are its on D and CB.
Just an able body is worth their weight in gold at this point.

In all fairness, I posted a graphic a couple of weeks ago I guess that showed CB's as the most injured player league wide every year. We had an extra special bad year last year, but what we are seeing now is more likely the norm from other fan's viewpoints.

I always say

The more the merrier

Avoid those with the same reoccurring injury

He seems to run a lot more like a Marcus Allen/Robert Smith type of back than a shifty Barry Sanders/Sproles type of back.

I'll take either.

A faster Pierre Thomas, IMHO.

His upside based on splash plays may be a Thurman Thomas... yeah, I know its way way way way too early for that type of absurd comparison.

But dayum that kid flashes greatness does't he?

Reading this post made me wonder when was the last time the Saints had that much rookie talent. Potentially five rookie starters is exciting but also a bit sobering as to how low we fell.
