New Orleans Saints rookie linebacker Stephone Anthony started every game in 2015 after being drafted in the first round, 31rst overall out of Clemson, last May.

Anthony was a bright spot for the Black & Gold, registering a team-high 112 tackles, five tackles for loss, a two point defensive PAT return, a fumble recovery for a touchdown, and an interception.

For his efforts, Anthony was named to the PFWA (Pro Football Writer's of America) All-Rookie team.

After a 7-9 campaign, the Saints are looking at young pieces like Anthony and linebacker Hau'oli Kikaha to lead the New Orleans defense heading into the future.
