Round 2, Pick 42: Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
Tankersley was in my first mock draft at the 32nd pick. He would most likely fall to the Saints at 42 in this situation, making him an even bigger steal. Selecting Tankersley here would mean the Saints would address all three levels of defense before day two is even over.
His 6’1″ size makes him a unique and important cornerback in today’s NFL. The NFC South is filled with great receivers the Saints play twice a year: Julio Jones, Mike Evans, Kelvin Benjamin, DeSean Jackson, just to name a few. The secondary woes would be addressed significantly for this year and many to follow.
