2020 NFL Draft: Saints Prospects

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Patrick Queen - LB LSU If the Saints take a LB early, I'd love to have PQ. He's a sideline to sideline assassin, has closing speed & is a good athlete (sounds like Stephone Anthony). Kind of hard to ignore ...

Patrick Queen - LB LSU

If the Saints take a LB early, I'd love to have PQ. He's a sideline to sideline assassin, has closing speed & is a good athlete (sounds like Stephone Anthony).

Kind of hard to ignore the fact that he consistently showed up in big games (Bama, FL & Clemson) though.

AJ Epenesa - Iowa DE

Some scouts are claiming he's the best 5 tech coming out of the draft.
He finished off his collegiate career in the Holiday Bowl vs USC ... 2.5 SACKS & forced fumble.

Saw some tape of him vs Penn State ... he has one hell of a bull rush.

Lions, G'nats, Panthers, Dolphins - he's be tough to pass on if he fell to 24 as Cam Jordan had...

Wisconsin LB Zack Baun... Now this guy has my attention. He was a 3-4 OLB but showed tremendous agility and football IQ dropping back and playing in space. Some are saying he could thrive as a Lorenzo Alexander type who lines up as a 4-3 Sam LB who can also rush the passer in sub-packages.

I live in Big 10 country and saw quite a bit of some of the Iowa games this year. He looked legit, draft him if he falls. DE is a rotational position so even with Jordan and Davenport on the roster I wouldn't hesitate.

Not to mention with the NASCAR packages you often see three (or more) true DE's on the field at the same time.
