Ridiculously Early 2011 Saints Roster Breakdown: Cornerbacks

Next up in our premature look at the Saints roster and the competition we may seen whenever training camp actually starts is the cornerback position. A team can never have enough good CB's and fortunately for the Saints, they're beginning to collect a nice little stockpile of talent.  

Today we're taking a look at the seven guys probably competing for a job this summer/fall - though I would expect them to add more competition in undrafted free agency - while ignoring any free agency or lockout implications that exist or may arise in the near future. Make the jump to see exactly who's currently on the roster and to get my opinion on where they stand as far as their chances of making the team this year. Of course I want to hear your opinions on the subject as well. 

Definite

Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter

This doesn't really need any explanation. Porter and Greer are returning for their third year as starters together. 

 

Likely

Patrick Robinson

The sophomore cornerback showed signs of improvement last year as the season progressed. Hopefully that progression has continued through the off-season as well. Highly doubtful that Robinson doesn't make the team.  

 

On the Bubble

Leigh Torrence, Johnny PatrickRandall Gay

Thanks to his special teams contributions, Torrence seems to always find a spot on the Saints roster. He's serviceable for sure. We've yet to see Johnny Patrick play a snap at the next level but I am assuming he's got a good chance to make the team. As for Randall Gay, he may end up removing himself from this conversation altogether by retiring due to significant head injuries. 

 

Longshot

Mark Parson

Parson is a relative unknown. He was signed by the Texans as an undrafted free agent before the 2009 season and has since only seen time on the practice squad. That's likely where he'll stay next season unless he really shines, particularly on special teams.
