2012 NFL Draft: Why Brandon Taylor Is Perfect Fit for New Orleans Saints

The 2012 NFL draft is quickly approaching and the New Orleans Saints need some safety depth in this year's draft. Brandon Taylor is the perfect played for the Saints to pick.

Taylor played for the LSU Tigers in college and has three years of starting experience. Taylor has shown that he can play well at a high level and that he has all of the intangibles to play at the next level.

The Saints currently have Malcolm Jenkins, Roman Harper, Isa Abdul-Quddus and Jonathan Amaya on the roster at the safety positions. However, Spagnuolo loves to use three safeties in his scheme at times, and another safety could not hurt the Saints, especially a player like Taylor.

Harper has struggled in coverage in the past, and if that is still the case in Spagnuolo's defense, then the Saints may have to find a replacement anyway. Even if Harper is allowed to stay, Taylor can come in and immediately be the No. 3 safety on the team.

Taylor is projected to go somewhere around the fifth round in the 2012 NFL draft, and the Saints can certainly find a way to pick him.

Let's take a look at four reasons why Taylor would be a perfect fit for the Saints.
