Kenneth Murray vs. Patrick Queen: Who is the better fit for the Saints?

Two linebackers are on the board.

Pretend the Saints are forced to pick one.

Who should they take: Patrick Queen or Kenneth Murray?

The two linebackers are among the best in this class, but they couldn't be more different as prospects. Queen, the LSU product, seems relatively safe. He sees the field, diagnoses quickly and makes plays. Murray, the linebacker from Oklahoma, is a little bit different. His athleticism and range are as good as it gets. The problem is that his processing and read and react is sometimes a little bit off.

Queen is the guy with the high floor and high ceiling. Murray's athleticism pushes his ceiling higher, but his floor is much lower. So, what should the Saints do if both are sitting there and there are no other options?
