Re: Breaking down the depth chart: Who covers the slot when Delvin Breaux returns?

I was looking for numbers on Breaux pro day or combine and was shocked at the numbers on some saints players, especially Brees benching 225lbs 32x

How each Saints player tested at the NFL Scouting Combine | NOLA.com

Still looking for Breaux numbers, so I might be editing or adding another reply

**** (it's not a official time) ****
**** (couldn't find bench or vertical)****

But at 6'1 196 his playing weight has no differentuality from Von Bell 5'11 199

At six-foot-1, 196 pounds with a 4.4 40-yard dash speed, Breaux is the full package. His performance against Jones especially pops off the tape. While Breaux often had help in coverage against Atlanta, his ability to track Jones and break on routes when the ball was in the air is ideal for a 21st Century corner.

Ken Crawley 6'0 187

4.43 /40x 36.5/vertical 7/bench press

Von Bell 5'11 199

4.53/40x 30.5/vertical 16/bench press

You'd think the Saints are getting 1992 Deion Sanders back and he must be inserted into the starting line-up NAO!

If he balls and eventually he legit takes someone's spot, great.

Payton's already said Breaux's gonna need some time for conditioning, so I wouldn't fret about dumping the apple cart just yet...

Hardee is getting it done on special teams.

Yes, sir, he really is. And he's one of those Patriot-type of players - Running Back, Cornerback, Gunner; Cadet gave us some of that, but Hardee's impact on kick coverage is obvious; but if he can develop some on defense as a CB - watch out...

Guess it may all be moot now; Dennis Allen gets to avoid another uncomfortable decision...
