Arnoux

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I was hearing really good things about the Wake Forest duo when they both went down early. The good news is they should understand the system and be able to slide in during training camp. I was surprised to hear ...

I was hearing really good things about the Wake Forest duo when they both went down early. The good news is they should understand the system and be able to slide in during training camp. I was surprised to hear the mock draft had only three defensive picks for the Saints. I would have thought that defense would get the stronger draft.

I could see him playing havoc on QB's on the pass rush or RB's trying to run his way, not to mention that he seems to play pretty good pass coverage. I'm really anxious to see what he can do when healthy.
size is a huge advantage in the NFL......

first off.....dumervil is a freak athlete.....i like to think that arnoux has that same athleticism but it just doesnt come around that often

secondly, dumervil is a 3-4 pass rushing OLB/DE....he is not a true OLB like arnoux would have to be

being good at 1 thing, like dumervil, merriman, and jason taylor are is very different than being good at several things like our OLBs have to be

shanle is a better overall OLB than dumervil is and that would probably annoy a lot of broncos fans but its the truth

I know what you're saying with defence. Don't really see the need for us in drafting a TE. Would love the other picks. Toby Gerhart is a biiiig favorite for me.

Re: Arnoux

I like DT, with the first pick. I did some research on Jared Odrick, out of Penn State, because someone else mentioned him earlier, and if he falls that far, I could definately see this guy coming in, and making an instant impact at DT. This guy is big enough to play DE as well. Ala, Willie Whitehead, except much bigger.

Re: Arnoux

Arnoux is a really good WLB prospect and a special teams demon. He said he gained about 10 to 15 pounds at Wake to play MLB because of a certain stud OLB they had (Aaron Curry).

He dropped his weight a bit and ran a faster than expected 40. Losing that weight also probably helps his lateral quickness too. But thats something we won't know until we see him in games.

I know his coach thought he was every bit as good as Aaron Curry. Measuring 6-0 is probably why he wasn't a higher pick.

If nothing else, he'll be a special teams demon, pun intended.
