This is the one pick that has not changed. Tanoh Kpassagnon will be the second defensive end the Saints pick. Arguably, he may have the bigger ceiling. The Saints did end meeting with Kpassgnon, so there is some interest there. The biggest challenge for the Saints, will be having to wait to see if Kpassgnon will fall to them at the third round. This scares me to be honest. Every time a new mock comes out, Tanoh Kpassgnon jumps up the board.
Standing at 6-foot-7 and 280 lbs. Kpassgnon is a man that spreads his arms like an octopus. At the Senior Bowl, the scouts were simply amazed at what this monster of a man can do against the top competition. He’s also made some plays in the kicking game, by blocking several kicks at Villanova. In my opinion, the Saints need to get him anyway possible.
