Jordan Poyer–Oregon St.(6’0, 190 pounds)

After watching him during the season and also at the Senior Bowl, Poyer likely gave himself some leverage in the upcoming draft.  He was quick and physical when it came to breaking on the ball and was good in coverage.

Being good in coverage would explain the 13 career interceptions he had along with 153 tackles and 23 passes broken up while at Oregon State.  His speed is average for a cornerback at a 4.50 40 yd dash but he still is a playmaker.

Poyer’s draft stock will rise some but he’s slated at being a late first round to possible early second round.  Like with Trufant, if the Saints trade back into the second round or get Poyer in the first round, I wouldn’t be too upset.
