New Orleans Saints pick Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft

Posted Apr 28, 2016

New Orleans saints select Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins with the 12th pick of the NFL draft

NFL.com review of Louisville DT Sheldon Rankins (6-2, 305 LBs):

In the Cardinals' three-man front, Rankins presents issues for both interior and outside blockers. His only start as a sophomore was in the team's bowl game, but he came on strong as a junior in the team's first year in the ACC (13.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks, two interceptions). ACC coaches elevated him from a third-team all-conference pick to second team this year (13 tackles for loss, six sacks) as he continued to terrorize ballcarriers. Rankins' versatility as a potential starting five-technique or three-technique makes him a fit in any system.
