I love the fact that he played for a great defense. I was leary of Kenny Vaccarro when we picked him. He was the highest rated safety in the draft, but he played for a horrible defense. Oh I get to mention again, I wanted Eric Reid over KV. I really hope this guy stays healthy. Our LBs have been our weakest position for years and we haven't had a pro bowler since......who knows? I love watching LeVontae David of the Bucs play. It sounds like this guy could be a payer like that. Am I reaching? Is he as fast as David?

I'm really hoping all of you are right. Total package? We'll see.

“Those three guys, there’s a lot of similarities,” said Venables, who has spent the last three years as defensive coordinator at Clemson, which led the nation in total defense last season (260.8 yards per game). “Those are three damn good ones.”

Venables said those similarities include maturity, decision-making, love and passion for the game, toughness and leadership -- a word the coach used repeatedly while describing Anthony.

never know with draft picks, but this kid has all the skills and intangibles. Has real potential to be a very good one for us

Hopefully there is another prospect like him in next years draft so we can have two young stud ILB's.

Athleticism is apparent.

Looks to take a few bad angles and recognition skills need development.

Re: Brent Venables knows his Saints MLBs well, says Stephone Anthony is 'total package'

He doesn't have to be Kuechly, just stick and stay.... I would take it if he plays significantly and becomes a Kuechly or a David type..... but he doesn't have to be that right away.

Im just grateful we didn't reach to draft him or any other prospect. Last year was a nightmare.... Not the season, the draft season.... Cooks injured, SJB not playing, and no other Saints selection cracked the lineup for any significant amount of time... some of them didn't even make it throught the season......#wasted

I haven't given up on Vaccaro... I think he benefits the most from having LBers come up and do their job so he and the rest of the secondary won't have to....

We finally have a badass MIKE.
I was mad about our first pick but was extremely happy with every other pick especially this one. Cant wait to see him in Black and Gold.
