Kenneth Murray, LB, Oklahoma

The last player on this list is Oklahoma junior linebacker, Kenneth Murray. Just like Patrick Queen, Murray is a late addition to the Saints’ radar because of the free agency signings they had. They can now focus efforts more on depth.

The Saints need depth at the linebacker position and Murray would offer instant success at that job. Kenneth Murray totaled 365 tackles in three years, 36.5 of which were for a loss. He also added 9.5 sacks, six passes defended, and 2 fumble recoveries.

Murray is one of the few players in this draft that the Saints could immediately fit into the starting lineup. He is one of, if not the top, options that the New Orleans Saints should consider heading into draft day.
