| New Orleans Saints Talk|| Most Improved Player day 3 edition - blueslover on 7/27/14 at 5:15 pm|
- If I had a vote for most improved player very early in training camp, it would be wide receiver Nick Toon. Physically, Toon just looks the part and now is finally starting to play the part. He had a tremendous day Saturday and followed it up with another solid day today. More than anything else, T...

it ain't for everyone but if it fits ya it is a great option. Being able to visit someone and get first hand info/insight is a big plus.
For many the initial impetus is financial. There's no denying how great that is. Coming to my first 90 days of expatriation the most refreshing thing is more...

I'll chime in for appreciation of bonethugs (and others) capology work. I follow it and know most of it. It's now a necessary aspect of NFL life but one that I don't enjoy much. I much prefer getting it from reliable researchers here than spending my time on salary cap sites....

I disagree that Hawthorne & Lofton had their best years. Otherwise, decent coverage from a national writer.
Three of those teams have very good NFL quarterbacks and that bei...

just that they didn't draft anyone tells me they must have some faith in him. [i]How good[/i] is to be seen. I always think of Bushrod with these kinda guys. He was a 4th Rd pick. I dunno if he even had any snaps outside of special teams his first two years. Then year 3 he is the left tackle sta...

He was near the top if not the one on many lists. The most frequently cited #1 WR not drafted fo sho.

another on Cooks... in the draft process I heard him described at least 3-4 times by different analysts as a [i]supercharged[/i] Tavon Austin. Not gonna get into the comparison but just that most spoke of him in higher regard than Austin. I dig on that for the valuation aspect. Our #20 is already...
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: I have a good feeling about both Brandin and Brandon - blueslover on 5/12/14 at 10:11 am|
I like how Cooks plays low and tough. He does remind me of Sproles in that way
| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: Cooks is NOT a Running Back - blueslover on 5/12/14 at 10:01 am|
I don't think any single player will fill the Sproles role per se. If you watch Cooks highlights tho, you will see he did take a lot of handoffs from close rather than what we generally think of as an end around.
His 2013 OSU running numbers might be a guide:

| New Orleans Saints Talk|| re: The Official Saints UDFA Thread - blueslover on 5/10/14 at 6:19 pm|
The question is any team possibly better than the Saints with UDFAs? I don't know of one right off. A solid contender that has as many UDFAs make the roster as anyone... that is some cool leverage to have when these guys are considering where they wanna go.
Just last year Glenn Foster (looked l...
