Hello Seattle Seahawks fans (*waves*),
I was wondering if you could educate me on what to expect as a Saints' fan from David Hawthorne.. strengths, weaknesses and how he fits into our defense?

*Get off me* :D
I think Hawthorne's nice pickup. Great in run support and tackling, decent but slightly below average in coverage and was hobbled throughout the year and had a down year. Good locker room guy. We let him go because they wanted speed in the front 7 and blitzing is not his strength. He can play both MLB and OLB.
In many ways, he's a lot similar to Curtis Lofton but less hyped.
Even the voice of authority, PFW, believes they have to go LB in the 1st rd.
I guess that means it's the Whitehurst Era at QB after all.....
