Round 4, Zaviar Gooden(Missouri), Linebacker

The Saints have been looking for a compliment at outside linebacker to help match up with the speedy tight ends they have had to face and drop in coverage when called for.  Gooden has 4.49 speed and after a mediocre week of practice, had a good game in the Senior Bowl.  He showcased that speed by snagging an interception during the game and returning it for 30 yards.  Several sites compare him to former Mizz and current Atlanta Falcons linebacker Sean Weatherspoon.  Gooden could be a good answer to that question mark in the linebacking corps for the Saints.

    We will see what happens in free agency, which will be key to what the Saints pick. Defensive line will probably the 1st and 3rd round picks. I think the new defensive coordinator will make a difference in draft picks as well. For instance if we get a defensive line coach promoted to D.C. then the likely hood of defensive line picks increases. Looking forward to the coaches and draft picks. I’m looking forward to getting Mike Detillier’s Draft Report 2013, which in my opinion is the best in the business.
