I want to give huge props to Malcom Jenkins firts. Morstead (sp?) looks great so far-- that kick inside the 3 was beauty-- and with Arnoux and Vaughn in the wings (surely one is a keeper) to serve as red shirts prospects, we have, essentially, gotten immediate impact from 2 picks and a high upside for the next 2-5 years from 2 other picks, from this year's class. Customarily, this year's picks are expected to show their worth in years 2-5.

If a team gets 2 or 3 solid keepers that's success right? What if we get 4?

I have Malcom pegged as our ROY already. Nice job from the scouts and FO on this draft so far.

Per Sean Payton, Jenkins has accounted for 14 points, based on his forced fumbles. How many other 1st rounders have done that?

Who dat!

Runs down a sure TD that ends up only being 3, forces a fumble the next week and then forces and recovers a fumble this week. Great tackles and nice blocks. He's already working into the packages that were just 2 weeks ago packages that Gay played.

Has Jenkins cracked the starting lineup yet? He has been doing good on ST for sure. That was a good FF last game. He punched that ball right out. I think he has a bright future. I don't know if he will get DROY if he is just playing on ST, but he looks solid.
Its hard transitioning to the NFL in the secondary. Things are much faster and much more complicated. I wouldn't set my expectations too high from him this year. Just sit back and let him learn.
I wasn't a big fan of Arnoux when yall drafted him. I did like the Vaughn pick. He is a big dude, but the knock on him was he is a liablity in coverage.....Roman Harper anyone? :)
Just be glad your guy is healthy. William Moore is JUST now getting back healthy.

He's not ready for prime time evidently, but I'm sure he'll work his way in on nickel. Porter and Greer so far have been lights out. I've seen Gay blow some plays at nickel, but MJ hasn't gotten the call over him yet. He is a ball hawk for sure, though, that was one of his big strengths in the draft. I'm looking forward to him becoming the nickel, but I can't see him working his way above Greer and Porter unless one of them drops off significantly or goes down.

Pretty impressive.

Though not on turnovers, Percy Harvin has accounted for 21 points and Sanchez has accounted for more than that.

Barring injury to Porter or Greer I doubt Jenkins will start this year at all. Unless weeks 16 and or 17 we decide to sit one since we have already locked up Home field!

Let's hear it for the 2007 draft while we're at it.

Meachem's played a significant part in the wide receiver rotation, Bushrod is now our starting left tackle, Marvin Mitchell is seeing playing time, we're all optimistic about Usama Young, and you might as well throw in UDFA Pierre Thomas into that mix.

Not bad for what was being billed on this forum by many as one of the "Worst Drafts in Saints History".
