Saints Address Defense in Third Round

The New Orleans Saints addressed the defensive side of the ball, and made two more good picks, with their third-round selections of Illinois linebacker Martez Willson, and Louisville cornerback Johnny Patrick, on Friday night. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.

The classic NFL draft debate is whether to draft for need or value.

For the second night in a row, the New Orleans Saints appeared to do both when they selected Illinois linebacker Martez Wilson with the eighth pick in Round 3 (No. 72 overall).

Later in the third round, the Saints also added Louisville cornerback Johnny Patrick with the 88th pick.
