Payton: Pass protection will be key for RB Travaris Cadet
by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst

Saints coach Sean Payton said running back Travaris Cadet, now with the Patriots, is a "work in progress with regards to protection," reports ESPN.com. Payton noted Cadet is a converted receiver who hasn't played running back long.

"He’ll know who to have, but he just hasn’t had the snaps or the experience that so many of the other running backs have," Payton said of Cadet, who hopes to replace Shane Vereen as New England's pass-catching back.

Payton estimated Cadet was asked to pass protect only 10 to 12 times last season, the report said. But Payton believes Cadet can develop into a solid pass protector.

"He’s tough enough, he’ll know who to have, [so] that will be a technique and an ongoing skill and development [thing]," Payton said. "We felt like he definitely could become a protector because what keeps guys from being that third-down back is they don’t know who to block. That’s the first thing that keeps them from playing that position. They scan and see the guy that’s free; the problem with that is when the guy they are supposed to block doesn’t come and they’re in the backfield still and you have a flare-control issue – he’s supposed to be out in the route but he’s floating in the backfield before he leaves, it doesn’t work. So he’ll know who to block, it will just be a matter of technique.”
