Round 2: ILB Hau’oli Kikaha, Washington

C. On talent alone, this guy can play. Hau-oli Kikaha is a great athlete and is a pure pass rusher. He is a powerful player and he will be able to help turn the Saints’ fortunes around on defense. They filled a desperate need with this pick, but there is a big concern. Kikaha has suffered two ACL tears, and his health will be a risk going forward. If he can stay healthy, Kikaha will shine in New Orleans, but with the injury history, I would be concerned.. ILB. Washington. HAU-OLI KIKAHA

Round 3: QB Garrett Grayson, Colorado State

A-. Is Garrett Grayson the future of the New Orleans Saints? Grayson is an accurate passer and he is a smart player. He has good athleticism, and shares similarities to Drew Brees. With Brees in the final years of his career, this pick makes perfect sense as it gives Grayson time to develop in the Saints’ system. He will be able to learn from Brees, with the long term plan being that he will be his successor. This pick may be a little early, but if he’s the future of the franchise, that doesn’t matter.. QB. Colorado State. GARRETT GRAYSON

Round 3 (from Miami): CB P.J. Williams, Florida State

A-. The Saints found great value in cornerback P.J. Williams in the third round. Some believed he could be a first-rounder, but he slid all the way to the third and the Saints made their move. Williams has good size (6’0″, 194 pounds) and speed. He has the potential to become a playmaker at corner for New Orleans. Williams is also versatile, and will be able to line up outside, in the slot or even at free safety. I like this pick.. CB. Florida State. P.J. WILLIAMS
