1 of 4

We’re less than a week away until the NFL Draft! Some of you will be relieved to learn that that means the end of mass NFL Mock Draft article hysteria. For others, we stay engaged and extremely interested in what the New Orleans Saints do with their multiple draft picks. With the recent announcement of veteran wide receiver Greg Jennings heading to the Miami Dolphins, it feels like the Saints free agency push is all but over at this point.

Before we jump into this 7-Round NFL Mock Draft for the black and gold, let’s recap the past several versions.

Mock Draft 1.0: Shane Ray, DE/OLB, Missouri (13th); Denzel Perryman, ILB, Miami (44th); Duke Johnson, RB, Miami (75th); Alex Carter, CB, Stanford (109th); Ali Marpet, OT, Hobart (140th); Danielle Hunter, DE, LSU (171st); Jordan Hicks, OLB, Texas (205th)

Mock Draft 2.0: Vic Beasley, DE/OLB, Clemson (13th); Benardrick McKinney, ILB, Mississippi State (31st)

Mock Draft 3.0: Alvin Dupree, DE/OLB, Kentucky (13th); Michael Bennett, DT, Ohio State (31st); Devin Smith, WR, Ohio State (44th); Sammie Coates, WR, Auburn (75th); Clive Walford, TE, Miami (78th); Lorenzo Doss, CB, Tulane (140th); Max Valles, OLB, Virginia (146th); Sean Hickey, OT, Syracuse (171st); Terrance Magee, RB, LSU (205th)

Nine picks across seven rounds, which gives the Saints a great opportunity to build up their roster for this year and future seasons. It’s time for Who Dat Dish’s Mock Draft 5.0, one of the final ones this year!
