The New Orleans Saints, as well as the rest of the league, can find great value in talented NFL Draft prospects after the first round of the 2016 selection process.

The first round of NFL Draft prospects picked will build up the most hype and anticipation every year, but the players drafted after that first initial round are just as important.  This article isn’t breaking down my draft-day sleepers – that’ll come later.

In this miniseries (which began here), I’m focusing on talented players who are on the fringe of getting their names called on the first day of draft selections.

These are top 50 prospects that I can absolutely see rising into that coveted group of day-one picks, but could give teams such as the New Orleans Saints a huge bargain as a second or third-round pick.  The next entry in this miniseries will land this weekend.
