Kristian: Saints catch more defensive players in Round 5

With two selections one pick apart in the 5th round, the Saints added two SEC defensive players to their team. Their first selection is another safety in Alabama’s Vinnie Sunseri.  Sunseri suffered an ACL injury late in the 2013 season, but is praised for his high football I.Q.

NFL analyst Mike Detillier says Sunseri is a “Tough, hard nosed football player who has terrific football instincts, and he is like a coach on the field.”  This move has special teams written all over it.  "He’s a dynamic special teams player,” Detillier continued. 

With the Saints' second pick in the 5th round they went with Ronald Powell (OLB) out of Florida. 

“Great athlete, he’s an outside linebacker, I think if he can stay healthy, he’s a long, lean player that can flat out run!”  Detillier said of Powell.  Powell was the number one recruit in the country coming out of high school, but Detillier pointed out “the concern with him has been injuries.”
