2011 NFL Draft Results: Second Round Complete, Saints Prepare to Dominate Third Round

The second round of the 2011 NFL Draft is in the books and the New Orleans Saints will soon be on the clock with the 72nd overall pick, their first of two selections for the round (They're second pick is 88th overall). Some ideal defensive players still remain on the board including plenty of linebackers, possibly the biggest position of need for the Saints currently. Like the first round, the draft continues to play out nicely for the Saints and has set up well for another steal by the Saints. 

Here's a short list of potential picks I'd like to see:

  • DE/OLB Justin Houston
  • LB Martez Wilson
  • LB Mason Foster
  • DL Jurrell Casey
  • OL Clint Boling
  • OL Marcus Cannon

Personally, I'd be happy with any of these players and I'm surprised they're still available this late. Will any of those players still be available when the Saints are ready to pick? Which one will they go with? Stay tuned, Saints fans.

After the jump are the full results from the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
