I don't think Jenkins is a good safety...I would almost like to see him back at CB.




100% agree. Safety just isn't his natural position. He played the nickle spot very well his 1st two years here. I say move him back also.


Something's not right with Jenkins this year and I can't tell what it is.

He was good in that Nickle/Rover position his first year and did ok playing safety last year. This year was just bad. He's got the talent. I don't know if it's the "scheme" or if he just didn't try this year (I doubt it after some of his hustle plays) or what, but he just regressed terribly.

I just don't think he's being used correctly. That being said, IAQ played really well when he got a chance. Maybe Jenkins needs to be that TM7/Rover type player who plays different spots about 50% of the game.

re: Matt Elam


Harper isnt going anywhere. I like Elam's game and I think he will be a good pro and would love to have him. There is not a chance we will get him. SS will be the last position in the secondary we will upgrade in the offseason. FS and CB will be focused on more than SS.

Get outta here Les. Elam is much better in coverage than Harper. Not saying the Saints will draft him, but he will be a good player in the NFL.



I think he'll be a good player too, but he plays in the box a lot. He plays the ball well in front of him but ranging back, he's no different than laron landry was at LSU

He's not good. Nothing wrong, just not good. He's not a good FS. If they move him back to CB, at best he'll be a mediocre CB. Just A very meh player.

does a great job celebrating hard tackles after a 1st down is made while his team is losing by 3 TDs
