The New Orleans Saints secondary proved to be inconsistent when it came to the 2012 season.  Unknown names at the time like rookie Corey White and Elbert Mack shined while those thought to be stepping up like Johnny Patrick and Patrick Robinson didn’t.  Here are some prospects that the Saints should look at to help out this season.

Desmond Trufant–Washington(6’0, 186 pounds)

Trufant was talked about during his college career for good reason.  He’s physical and has some nice speed (4.45 40 yd dash)to go along with the tight coverage he provides.

There has been some concerns with his tackling abilities especially in the open field but shouldn’t soil too many suitors away.  Trufant has 195 tackles, 33 passes broken up, and six interceptions.

Most have him as a first rounder which it’s unlikely that the Saints would spend a pick on him at #15.  But Trufant could slip to the second which they could trade down if they want and grab him then.
