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