As the New Orleans Saints quiet down before training camp in July, fans start to think what the new young guys can contribute to their team this season. So, we take a look at what could happen for the Saints’ 2016 draft class.

It seems that every year people get over excited about the players being drafted by their team and expect 1,000-yard seasons and double-digit sack totals. Rarely does the players live up to those expectations, but that doesn’t mean they can’t make an immediate impact and be impressive in their first season as NFL players.

The Saints only came away with five players in the 2016 NFL draft. However, the good news is that all of those five players could have a large impact on how the 2016 season will turn out. Therefore, we take a look at how the stat sheet could look for each player in their rookie season for the black and gold.

This is all prediction, but make sure to mark it down so you can see just how close or far we came to predicting the last stat lines for all the Saints draft picks after the upcoming season.
