He's smart when it comes to his dropping into coverage, doesn't automatically give it away to the QB, almost like a delay. He's not getting anywhere against a tackle with strength, nothing more than a blitzing linebacker. He's easily misdirected off his path. Can also be thrown off with options, seems to have an issue tracking the ball. Catch him standing flat-footed far too often, making no impact. It appears he's trying to hold a zone, but he has to do something.

Zack Baun signs rookie deal with Saints

Zack Baun, one of the New Orleans Saints' third-round picks, has signed a four-year contract through 2023.

Fantasy Impact

The Saints traded up to acquire Baun in the draft to add the outside linebacker to their already strong repertoire of linebackers which includes both Demario Davis and journeyman Kiko Alonso. According to Ryan Wing of FOX News, Sean Payton likes Baun's versatility and feels he can become a designated pass rusher and can play in both "Mike" and "Sam" positions. Baun's senior year earned him lots of acclaim as he racked up 76 tackles (52 solo) in 14 games, as well as an interception returned for a TD. While we still await confirmation as to whether Baun will be a starter, it seems as though the intention of the Saints is to use Baun across multiple positions.
