No worries; project or not... He is a day 1 starter... Easily beats out the weakest between Hawthorne/Ellerbe

And more importantly, Stephone is a FAST LB. Something the Saints desperately need at the position.

You couldn't have gone wrong with LB picked here.... Plus Harold, McKinney, Kendricks, Perryman, and Gregory all fall making the possibility of getting another LB even greater....

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

he has size and speed to survive all season in 34. McKinney is the last of the true top flight 34 ILB left.

upside wins out. not to say we might still here McKinney at 44

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

I have to say that last year's defense was lacking cohesion and seemed to lack an understanding of where to line up on any given play. Anthony brings high football IQ. He reads the screen well and plays the pass exceptionally well.

The duo of Beasley and Anthony remind me of Jones and Ogletree from the 2013 draft. Everyone thought Ogletree put up good numbers because of those around him and loved the athleticism of Jarvis Jones. Jones was draft before Ogletree but Ogletree has had the better seasons so far.

Check out the one handed interception

I like the way he snuffs out screens and wraps up when he tackles

The guy showed great hands in his combine workout too.

First O-line and now ILB. I really like this draft so far. This kid looks like a more athletic Lofton.

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

I love the pick.... Cleveland ruined my day.... Shelton Anthony would have made my day for real... We have to protect Anthony now.... Get him a Space eating NT so he can hunt and a young OLB teammate that can run and punish the run like he does....
