Zack Baun

Pre-Draft Analysis

Baun is a relentless pass-rusher who shows top-end closing speed when he gets a path to the quarterback. There’s some shock in his hands and he should continue to improve his hand-to-hand combat skills. He covers ground and shows good instincts in coverage. Baun is a rangy run defender and strong tackler. — Steve Muench

Post-Draft Analysis

In defensive coordinator Dennis Allen’s defense, Baun can be utilized as both a stack linebacker and in pass-rush situations in schemed matchups. The Saints return All-Pro linebacker Demario Davis, but with A.J. Klein leaving in free agency, there was a need here to add a linebacker in the draft. — Matt Bowen
