44. New Orleans Saints: Stephone Anthony, LB (Clemson)
Stephone Anthony is the perfect addition to the New Orleans Saints defense. The Saints need help at the interior linebacker position. Anthony is a good athlete who can stay on the field on 3rd downs in passing situations.
Anthony is a textbook tackler and should help the Saints improve their run defense. The Saints problems are mostly on the defensive side of the ball and therefore they are wise to go defense with their first two selections.
The Saints are taking care of a big-time need and are getting a good value. Anthony ranks as the 46th best player on the big board. At pick 44 he is the appropriate pick for the Saints.
