New Orleans Saints draft Stephone Anthony: Twitter Reaction


The New Orleans Saints have officially made their second and final pick at No. 31 in the first round of the 2015 NFL Draft, selecting Clemson ILB Stephone Anthony.

The need for an interior linebacker was pressing with uncertainty of David Hawthorne‘s long-term starting capabilities and question marks surrounding Dannell Ellerbe, who looks to bounce back from a season-ending hip injury he suffered last year with the Miami Dolphins.  I like the pick — Anthony is going to be a great fit down on the bayou.

Fans, players and media reacted to the Stephone Anthony pick on Twitter:

The New Orleans Saints addressed the pressing need at inside linebacker with Anthony — the talent is undeniable.  The Who Dat Nation holds a firm trust in the decisions of Coach Sean Payton and GM Mickey Loomis. Welcome to the Big Easy, Stephone Anthony!
