I'm going to have to disagree with that. They might have struggled as a unit last year, but Alonso did his part. He's a 3 down linebacker that can do everything. His numbers give credence to multiple scouts saying he was the best player on Oregon's defense last year... not Dion Jordan.

I'm glad you mentioned that - when I do my HOBBY scouting that Hagan and I enjoy discussing with the guys and gals here, Kevin and I actually discussed this in previous threads before that you also have to look at the system, the coaches, and the other guys that are on defense to really assess what's happening...

And you very wisely and quite succinctly nailed it in your statement...

Love Kenny Vaccaro's impact as I've argued for an unpoplular change in the Saints' backstop for the past several years and Vaccaro made a HUGE difference - both due to KV awesomeness and due to the overvalued players already here...

I like KV ceiling better than anyone in the draft class with maybe the exception of Ogletree; but I'll gladly say the Saints made the right pick, though would have loved it had they traded back into the round and got Ogletree, I've a renewed vigor for this team with the awesome draft class we had...

Just because we pay respect to other team's players doesn't mean we don't cheer for our guys any less on Gameday...

Kiko Alonso is a superb LB.
Could have had him ourselves if we hadn't been screwed.

There's a reason I bought KV's jersey, because he is already amazing and his potential is through the roof.

His jersey was my first 2013 season purchase.
