The latest flurry of transactions have put the New Orleans Saints in uncharted territory when it comes to the NFL Draft. The Saints have nine draft picks in the 2015 draft, the most Payton and Loomis have had during their tenure.
The Saints are now dealing with some serious holes on their depth chart. At receiver they have an aging red-zone target in Marques Colston, Brandin Cooks who operates best in the slot, and unproven receivers like Nick Toon, Jalen Saunders and Seantavius Jones.
