I know, the season ain’t over yet. It’s far from over! So why are you writing this article now, you ask? Well, first of all, to give you an early look at some college players so that we can compare early impressions to later evaluations once we’re deep in the offseason. Secondly, I love speculating over college prospects/team needs and playing a little Mickey Loomis. I mean, why not? It’s fun!
We’re taking a look at Matt Miller’s (@nfldraftscout) first seven-round mock draft. In case you’re wondering who he is check this out. Miller’s draft order is based on the already assigned top 20 picks, plus playoff seedings for the teams playing in January. According to this criterion the Saints hold the 22nd overall pick.
Here’s a recap of the current picks the Saints have in the 2014 NFL draft:
1st Round – Pick No. 22
2nd Round – Pick No. 54
3rd Round – Pick No. 86
4th Round – Pick No. 118
5th Round – Pick No. 150
6th Round – Pick No. 182
7th Round – Pick No. 214 (traded to San Francisco in the Parys Haralson deal)
