In less than six weeks, football fans will finally see how their respective teams will tackle the 2016 NFL Draft. We’re very intrigued on how the New Orleans Saints will attack.

After the opening first week of ‘open season’ in NFL Free Agency, the New Orleans Saints remained relatively quiet. They focused on re-signing players of their own, while adding tight end Coby Fleener as their lone splash of the first day. After several low-key moves, we’re wondering what’s really going on with the black and gold. While I shed some light in a column I wrote for WDSU recently, the big question remains about how the team will attack with six draft picks.

It’s been a little over a month since I gave you my last mock draft for the New Orleans Saints. With the full draft order in place after the league awarded compensatory picks, we look at a full seven-round mock draft. As a reminder, the team is without their 2015 sixth-round pick, which was used to acquire cornerback Damian Swann.

Before we dive in completely, here’s a brief recap of the first two mocks.

Mock 1.0 (The ‘Way Too Early’ Edition): DeForest Buckner, Jarran Reed, Hunter Henry, Roberto Aguayo, Rees Odhiambo, Steve Longa
Mock 2.0 (The ‘Still Early’ Edition): Myles Jack, Jarran Reed, Christian Westerman, Roberto Aguayo, Maurice Canady, Matt Judon

Next: Round 1
