Saints sign another CB

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I read that one of our new defensive coaches coached him in SF. Maybe he knows something we don\'t. I think he\'s just a younger replacement for AA. 4th CB. [Edited on 18/4/2005 by Danno]...

About Davis, I think that if we keep our #16 pick, TD would be a really good pick. I believe he has way too much athleticism and football savvy to be a bust. Seems like an electrifying player.

I guess Davis and a CB should be the first two picks. I considered Travis johnson, but I\'m sure sure he has enough starting experience.

I do know that we\'ll need young, speedy sure tacklers, or we\'ll be chasing Vick around like a Benny Hill skit. I think Vick is the key to the whole division.

Correction: I\'d like DJ & a corner first. I was watching the news while typing

I think we got Williams cause there are trade rumors involving Fred Thomas and Cleveland. They just lost Anthony Henry to Dallas. Doesn\'t mean we won\'t draft a corner, just that there is someone to take Fred\'s spoy in case he is traded, and while the rookie develops in case he doesn\'t start right away. And if he does, depth in case of injury. No big deal either way.

I\'m very familiar with Jimmy Williams\'s career. He\'s home grown talent, originally from Baton Rouge. Went to Episcopal High as QB, then to Vanderbilt as a CB.

Yep, B-player depth. A wise signing. There may be quite a few teams that didn\'t get the guy they wanted and may be willing to trade for Fred Thomas, Boo Williams, Mike McKenzie, Darren Howard, and even an Aaron Brooks.
It all depends on who we get, and who someone else didn\'t get.

Agreed Danno. No difference maker, bit a solid fill in should we trade Fred. Doesn\'t really help or hurt us, but allows us time to develop our CB should we draft one.

So right now this is the Cb depth chart

1.Predator
2.F Brown
3.J Craft(even though he didn\'t impress me)
4.F Thomas/J Williams(toss up?)

Any thoughts?
