Safety Malcolm Jenkins of the New Orleans Saints is optimistic that the Saints can repeat as NFL champions this season but knows that it will take plenty of work.

Jenkins, who was drafted 14th overall in last year’s draft, was considered by some scouts to be better suited for the safety position and was moved from cornerback to safety during the offseason and feels comfortable at his new position

The Saints coaching staff made the decision to draft Florida State cornerback Patrick Robinson with their first round pick this year thus giving the team the depth to move Jenkins who will be the backup to veteran Darren Sharper.
