Saints get Baun | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

10:04pm EDT 4/24/20

The Saints traded up to select Wisconsin LB Zack Baun in Round 3 of the NFL Draft. Baun finished his Badgers career playing almost exclusively on the edge. But at 230 pounds, he'd likely have trouble holding up there every play in the NFL. New Orleans' 4-3 base gives him more of an off-ball LB role, but we'd bet on plenty of pass-rushing. Baun's cross-category potential and impressive overall athleticism makes him worth a bet in dynasty rookie drafts. The risk is that he plays a role similar to what Anthony Barr has with the Vikings -- which has included plenty of real-life value but limited fantasy production.
