Love the pick, he adds pass rush from the linebacker position he's another impact player on defense to go with Demario Davis and Anzalone (when healthy)

29. Zack Baun, LB Wisconsin

Baun’s lack of bulk is really his only major deterrent. He is thinly built and could definitely benefit from adding some good weight to take on NFL blocks. But he has an elite motor, engages contact with power and good hands, and is quick to diagnose and attack the ball. He’s smooth-hipped in coverage and overall a very quality pursuer as an off ball linebacker. His athleticism coupled with his football IQ makes for a very high ceiling LB prospect. Hard not to love the player, even with an unconventional build for the position.

On the player, I'm meh and I voted as uch.

If he was a possible 1st round choice and we got him in the 3rd round? That's a clear value. A future 3rd is a small price if you trust the Saints board. Which I do do.

I'll just need to look at him more. See if I'm missing something.
