If the Saints need to fill a hole left by Brandin Cooks in the mid rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft, Carlos Henderson could be one great option. In college, Henderson played a key role at Louisiana Tech and could continue to do so as he transitions into the NFL. Despite his short stature, attributes such as his general strength, agility, speed, and hands will allow Henderson to succeed in an NFL offense, especially the Saints. For a full analysis I did on Henderson, check out this mock of mine that can be found here. 

2.) Curtis Samuel – Ohio State

Curtis Samuel was utilized in several ways for Ohio State and succeeded pretty well. Abilities such as his feet and quickness will allow Samuel to succeed as he transitions into the professional level. An athlete such as Curtis Samuel could be deathly if the team he’s drafted to uses him correctly. It wouldn’t surprise me if Samuel was utilized as a running back, receiver or kick returner in the National Football League. If New Orleans were to draft Curtis Samuel, expect it to be somewhere in the third round of the draft.
