Saints Final Pick Is Nate Bussey

With the 243rd pick in this year’s NFL Draft, the New Orleans Saints selected Illinois outside linebacker Nate Bussey. Bussey has a reputation for being an excellent special teams player. Many draft pundits thought Bussey would go undrafted.

At 6’1, and 217 pounds, Bussey finished his senior season with 69 tackles (6.5 tackles for loss). Bussey has good speed, but was not able to transfer his quickness to good cover skills in college. He also needs to improve his strength if he wants to make an impact at linebacker.

Bussey is the 4th player from Illinois to be drafted in 2011, and the second to be drafted by the Saints. New Orleans selected Bussey’s teammate in linebacker Martez Wilson in the 3rd round.
