Jenkins is horrible bro, I'd stick him at nickel until after the season then his arse is cut

I agree for the most part but I don't think they need to cut Jenkins. He does have talent. His problem is being terribly inconsistent, more on the bad side.

He would save $2.5 mil though and it would be a statement cut.

Jenkins, he's not bad at all

got a wow from me

I'm not on the lynching committee but his flaws are readily evident. That he is in the last year of his rookie contract and no one anywhere even suggests he might be extended shows the Saints valuation of him.

False. He showed great potential at NB. Maybe he never becomes an outside CB but he played much better at NB than he ever did at FS.

We moved him because we didn't have any FS once Sharper left. He was going to be our long term solution there.

revisionist history out of hope that our FO didn't frick up another early pick and our current pick not only justifies their drafting, but may be so good that we get TWO starters

he was crucified on this board and with good reason. he's a bad athlete for the CB position (esp the nickel)

It was his rookie year. He started to play better later in the year, but he didn't have the top end speed to play outside. He's quick enough and has the size to play nickel though.

I think its obvious that the grand puppet master Loomis is the one keeping a guy (jenkins) on our team who can't play corner can't play nickle can't play dime and can't play safety despite all the coaches pleas.

This. He started making a bunch of plays at the end of the year. Then he moved to FS and regressed every year.

I'm going to be very disappointed if KV only sees the field in nickel or third down situations. He's a first round pick that needs to be starting day one.


If a year from now Vaccaro is starting and a difference maker, then this pick will be viewed as a good one.

It is dumb and shortsighted to say that the success of this pick is dependent on him starting day 1

Another thing, the old free/strong safety roles and designation is quickly becoming history. It's evolving just to left and right safeties. They have to do it all, jam the box and cover deep.


This. Having a clear strong safety and free safety, signals where the strength of coverage is located. Thus, having two safeties with range and run support abilities is optimal.

In regards to our situation, MJ has at least shown the ability to do both of those ( i know, i know, never consistent). Whereas, Roman, clearly can't perform one of the above listen prerequisites to be a quality safety in today's game. I've been firmly planted on the IAQ pain train, so don't take this as a petition for Malcolm.

I see a lot of people saying this...but what does that say about Robinson? I know that's asking to choose between two of Saints Talk's whipping boys, but I would much rather Robinson at nickel than Jenkins. Much, much more so.

Problem with the secondary guys is the only two worth cutting are Jenkins and Harper (after June 1st for him). Everyone else costs cap to cut or is making peanuts.

For this reason alone Jenkins is the one most in jeopardy.

when your argument is based on him being a big need, it's kind of presumed that he has to make an early impact

otherwise, the "need" argument is irrelevant

Agree he needs to be on the field for the pick to be "worth" it. I'm coming around to the pick due to the fact we needed immediate help at Safety. If he's not ready this year, he was too much of a reach

You are oversimplifying it.

The Saints NEED a LT...and they drafted a guy who will most likely require a year before he is ready. Why? Presumably, it was because there wasn't someone staring them in the face that would have been able to step in and play at a high level this year anyway...so they took a guy that had higher upside. In other words, the draft wasn't going to solve that problem this year.

Safety could be the exact same thing. They see the need to replace both safeties and perhaps think that Vaccaro could be a guy that replaces one of them soon. But, if the kid takes a little while to figure it out (very common for a rookie), and it is next year before he is ready, it doesn't disprove that safety was a huge need.
