Cornerback

In a surprising release, the team let go of cornerback Janoris Jenkins. Now, I do realize that they have guys like Chauncey Gardner-Johnson and Patrick Robinson who will likely step up and fill that starting role, but they still lost a depth player.

Therefore, where they target a cornerback in the draft is not as important because they already have a starter. They could after someone earlier like Asante Samuel, Jr., from Florida State or Tyson Campbell from Georgia if they fall to them in the first round.

This would allow the team to get CGJ back to the slot cornerback position and allow one of them to take the outside corner. If they don’t do that they could wait until the second round and target Jaycee Horn, son of former Saints receiver Joe Horn.

There is a wide variation of flexibility because they could also wait until way later and target an Ohio State cornerback somewhere in the mid to late rounds of the draft. Either way, where they get a cornerback is not as important as them actually doing it.
