I'm sensing a theme, and I like it

With the last pick in the first round of the draft, the Saints took everybody by surprise and drafted a corner. I was as shocked as everyone else, but after thinking about it for a while, I started to like the pick. Also, I noticed a common theme as mentioned in the title. More after the jump.

 

First of all, I like the pick-up of Patrick Robinson because the Saints are planning on using Malcolm Jenkins more as a safety this year. Robinson, IMO, is a better cover guy than Jenkins because of the speed factor. He's got make-up speed. Last year, when Porter and Greer got hurt, the defense wasn't quite the same. 

 

Now to the good part. Robinson has picked #34. Also, he's got dreadlocks. Anybody want to take a guess at my common theme?

Love him or hate him, Rickey Williams did put in some good seasons as the Saints starting running back. He obviously didn't live up to the hype of trading away our entire draft class to get him, but he was pretty good. He also wore #34 and had dreadlocks.

On to my favorite dreadlocked player in Saints history, Mike Mckenzie. He looked like the Predator from the movie of the same name. He was fun to watch and easily recognizable out on the field. He also wore #34 and played corner.

Doesn't this guy look strangely familiar. I had to look at the picture closer to make sure it was Robinson and not Mckenzie. Not to say that Robinson is going to be good because he has dreadlocks and wears #34, but it's kind of interesting on a slow day.

Can't forget the dreadlocked hamburger.
