Well guys alot of you wanted Anthony and now you got him. I hope he works out for the teams sake. I come in and read our #31 pick was Anthony and my heart dropped but not in a good way. I hate this pick. I'll eat crow if I'm wrong but there were much better ILB that are still out there and N.E. picked Brown at #32 can't ever say we could not have immediately upgraded our front D line with letting him slip by.Sometimes I think our FO has to much of a good time drinking their cocktails.

Great pick and great first day. The next 3 are just as important.

Can't say I know much about him but he certainly looks like one physical and tough mother hf'er. We filled two positions we all thought we would address really early... which is definitely a plus.

I much rather had Denzel Perryman hopefully we still can grab him because we need 3 more lbers. IMHO

I agree we need 2-3 more, but I'd be happy with one more quality starting LB. The next 2 picks are important, we need quality starters not projects.

True... If Jenkins doesn't go AWOL this year as he did last year, it makes it more palatable. Still need a stud in the middle. There ought to be a few at #44.

I really hope I'm wrong and i'll come back and eat a lot of Crow (or seagulls if you prefer) but I see Martez Wilson all over again in this guy

Re: Saints select Stephone Anthony @31

To all who don't like the Anthony pick at 31:

What have we needed for years? An athletic, speedy linebacker who can cover.

Anthony IS that player. More so than Perryman.

And I'd rather use a high pick on a guy who's responsible for doing more than being a "space eater"....

C'mon fellas, there are a dozen 300+lb guys we can grab in later rounds. There aren't other Stephone Anthonys.

Dang, this cat is fast, instinctive, athletic and violent.

Basically everything our other LB's aren't.

He really is fast man, he can go sideline to sideline. Super athletic. If there's a hole for him to go through, look out. Imagine blitzing him up the middle?
