New Orleans Saints fans voted LB Stephone Anthony as the 2015 Saints draft pick that will have the biggest impact in 2016 in a NewOrleansSaints.com poll this week.
Anthony earned 54 percent of the 2,087 votes in the poll. Along with Anthony, LB Hau'oli Kikaha (28%) and OT Andrus Peat (10%) rounded out the top three vote geters in the poll.
Anthony won a starting job at MLB during the preseason and started all 16 games, showing why the coaches put their faith in him. The Clemson alum led the team with 144 tackles, including 99 solo stops, ranked first among NFL rookies. He was a consensus All-Rookie selection. His tackle total on the season surpassed Rickey Jackson's 125 stops in 1981 for the club rookie record.
