Number Three: Zack Baun

Zack Baun was a steal for the New Orleans Saints when he was selected in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Baun was a superstar in college and in many mock drafts was projected to be a late first-round pick.

Baun, in three seasons at Wisconsin, was a heck of a football player. Baun recorded 152 tackles, 30.5 tackles for a loss, 15 sacks, three forced fumbles, four passes defended, two interceptions, and one defensive touchdown.

Outside of Chase Young, Baun could’ve been considered the best pass rusher in the association. Baun’s senior season really put him on the map when he finished second in the nation with sacks behind the number two overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft Chase Young.

Baun has star potential and could be the next great NFL linebacker. Baun is projected to start immediately and his services will be used greatly in the Big Easy.
