Unless the Saints see a player that they absolutely have to have, it’s highly unlikely that they will trade up into the second round due to them only having five total picks this year. Plus there should be some value left by the third round.
The Saints have also made it clear that they will not be drafting to fill any needs because of possible player suspensions. Assistant head coach Joe Vitt stated that they will draft as if everyone is playing this year.
The team has their boards set and will follow through with their original plan, so don’t expect a draft pick that is outrageous or flashy. Instead, it will be the player the Saints feel is the best available at that time and in that round.
