  • Saints' Zack Baun: Looking good in new role

    Baun logged five tackles, including one tackle for loss, and a pass deflection during Saturday's preseason opener against the Ravens.

    After playing on the strong side during his rookie year, Baun seemed to be a more natural fit at weak-side linebacker during last weekend's preseason opener. While he may not be much of an IDP prospect as long as he has to rotate with Kwon Alexander and second-round rookie Pete Werner (leg), that could change if Werner continues to miss time and/or something happens to Alexander, who's bouncing back from an Achilles injury that ended his 2020 campaign.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Shifting to weakside linebacker

    Baun will compete for the starting job at weakside linebacker in training camp, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    The 2020 third-round pick worked on the strongside as a rookie but played only 82 defensive snaps. Baun could earn a larger role in 2021 with a strong showing in camp, though Demario Davis should remain the leader of the unit.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Totals 12 tackles

    Baun totaled 12 tackles over 15 games in 2020.

    With veterans Demario Davis, Alex Anzalone and eventually Kwon Alexander logging the vast majority of available snaps at linebacker, Baun did well to become a regular contributor on special teams during his rookie year. Should the Saints free up over $13 million in cap space by parting ways with Alexander this offseason, there's a solid chance he could make a bigger impact on defense in 2021.

  • Saints' Zack Baun: Bayou bound

    The Saints selected Baun in the third round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 74th overall.

    The Wisconsin product was billed as a potential first-round selection, so this is a nice value for the Saints, who traded up with the Browns to get him. Baun was a monster off the edge for the Badgers, racking up 12.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss as a senior. He has athleticism as well, showing out at the combine with a 4.65-second 40-yard dash. Baun can be used as a pass rusher or he can play off-ball linebacker. He missed the 2017 season due to a foot injury but started all 27 games in his last two years.
