Day 3 of New Orleans Saints training camp


SHARIEF: THE SAINTS HAVE REACHED THE FUN PART OF TRAINING CAMP, FULL PADS. AFTER SOME WHAT OF A RELAXING FIRST TWO DAYS OF PRACTICE, THE BLACK AND GOLD STRAPPING ON ALL THE PADS FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS TRAINING CAMP, BUT OF COURSE, NO REAL BIG HITS. EVERYONE WAS KEPT UPRIGHT FOR THE MOST PART, BUT THERE WERE SOME BIG PLAYS OF THE DAY, AND ALL OF THEM CAME ON OFFENSE. DREW BREES AND BRANDON COLEMAN CONNECTED ON A NICE, LONG PASS YESTERDAY. TODAY, IT WAS CHASE DANIEL AND COLEMAN. COLEMAN BEATING ROOKIE MARSHON LATTIMORE DOWN THE SIDELINE FOR A HUGE COMPLETION. HOW ABOUT BRANDIN COOKS’ REPLACEMENT? BREES FINDS TED GINN, JR. OVER THE MIDDLE. DELVIN BREAUX GOES FOR THE STRIP. NOT HAPPENING, AND GINN HITS THE SPEED BURST DOWN THE SIDELINE UNTIL VONN BELL KNOCKS HIM OUT OF BOUNDS. EVERYONE HAS BEEN WAITING TO HEAR TRAVIN DURAL’S NAME. HERE WE GO. GARRETT GRAYSON THROWING IT UP . THE FORMER LSU TIGER CLIMBS THE LADDER TO SNAG THAT BALL OUT THE AIR. COREY FULLER TAKES IT ON THE DRAG ROUTE, AND FULLER IS GOING TO TAKE IT TO THE HOUSE THAT’S THE OFFENSE. AS FOR THE DEFENSE, FLETCHER MACKEL HAS MORE FROM METAIRIE ON THAT SIDE. FLETCHER: THE SAINTS CONTINUED TO EXPERIMENT WITH THEIR LINEBACKER POSITION. THEY HAD MOUNTED TEO PLAYING MIDDLE LINEBACKER, AND AJ KLEIN IS THE STRONG SIDE LINEBACKER. ON SATURDAY MORNING WHEN THEY WENT ONES VERSUS ONES, IT WAS DIFFERENT. THEY HAD ALEX ANZALONE PLAYING WEAK SIDE. REMEMBER, THE SAINTS MADE HIM A PRIORITY FREE AGENT WHEN THEY SIGNED HIM AWAY FROM THE CAROLINA PANTHERS. AS FOR ALEX ANZALONE, A ROOKIE FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA, POTENTIALLY STARTING AT THE WEAK SIDE LINEBACKER’S LOT, IT IS A REALISTIC POSSIBILITY AFTER THE PRACTICE ON SATURDAY. SEAN SPENT — SEAN PAYTON SPOKE HIGHLY OF HIM.>>THE BEST THING HE CAN DO IS SEE INFORMATION, BEGIN TO BREAK IT DOWN, AND UNDERSTAND WHAT HE IS GOING TO GET FROM A PASS. I THINK THAT IS A GOOD SKILL SET FOR HIM, AND IT HAS HELPED HIM. FLETCHER: ALL THE LINEBACKER POSITIONS ARE WIDE OPEN AND UP FOR GRABS. TWO JOBS THAT ARE SECURE, STRONG SAFETY AND CORNERBACK. DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR DENNIS ALLEN SAYS IT COULD BE A BREAKOUT YEAR FOR BREAUX.>>DELVING HAS EVERYTHING YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. DELVIN NEEDS TO CONTINUE TO GROW FROM THE MENTAL ASPECT OF THE GAME, AND UNDERSTAND HOW OFTEN PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO ATTACK HIM. WHAT ROUTES DO I HAVE TO COVER BASED ON FORMATION, SPLITS, AND THOSE TYPES OF THINGS? THIS GAME IS WAY MORE MENTAL THAN PEOPLE GIVE IT CREDIT FOR. SMART PLAYERS WIN IN THIS LEAGUE , AND THAT’S WHERE HE’S GOT TO CONTINUE TO IMPROVE. WE’VE SEEN THAT OVER THE LAST COUPLE OF YEARS. FLETCHER: MOST EXPECT MARSHAWN LYNCH MORE WILL START OPPOSITE DELVIN BREAUX IN WEEK ONE, BUT DON’T RULE OUT STERLING MOORE AND YOUNG GUYS LIKE KEN CRAWLEY AND DEVONTE A HARRIS WHO GOT VALUABLE EXPERIENCE LAST SEASON.
