GAINESVILLE, FL – SEPTEMBER 10: Alex Anzalone
GAINESVILLE, FL – SEPTEMBER 10: Alex Anzalone /

Linebacker Alex Anzalone won’t be hard to find on the field. He is  known for the long blonde locks. But don’t let his Fabio resemblance trick you into thinking he’s not tough. Anzalone was picked by the New Orleans Saints in the 3rd round of the NFL Draft. Arguably, he is somewhat of an X factor here.

Anzalone has the size and speed at 6-foot-3 and 240 lbs. to play in the NFL. Some of the draft experts had him going as high as the 2nd round. On the other hand, he struggled to stay healthy at Florida, but there is a silver lining here. The injuries ranged from a shoulder injury to a broken arm. In other words, perhaps these injures were just freak accidents that derailed his college career and not an indication that he’s injury prone.

Who Dat Nation just wants to see a healthy guy in the Black and Gold. If Anzalone can stay healthy, watch out!
