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!
