is making a name for himself during Saint's OTAs this week.

The rookie made the play of the day on Thursday during 11 on 11 drills with a leaping interception from backup quarterback Luke McCown.

"That was an impressive play," Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said to ESPN. "He's been working really hard with [linebackers coaches Joe Vitt and James Willis], and he's really looking good. And he loves football. So he's the guy we expected when we drafted him."

Anthony was selected by the Saints in the first round with the #31st overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.

He had 330 tackles, 34.5 tackles for loss, 9.5 sacks, three interceptions for eight yards, 18 quarterback pressures, 13 pass breakups, five caused fumbles and one recovered fumble during his Clemson playing days. He also was named a consensus first-team All-ACC selection his senior season with 90 tackles.
