Reaching Is Wrong

Under no circumstances should the New Orleans Saints partake in an action called reaching for players. This phrase commonly describes teams selecting athletes higher than the correct spot the athlete is primed to be a target at for fear of him being selected before the said team is next able. In this draft especially, with the loaded depth at certain positions, New Orleans shouldn’t be forced to reach for a player. If it is anything, the Saints should play this draft safely. Look at the options, and select the best player available, commonly known as the BPA.

There isn’t much to be said here. If the New Orleans Saints handle the 2017 NFL Draft well enough there shouldn’t be any mistakes, including reaching.

New Orleans has put together a valiant team, consisting of people who have put time in to succeed at their job. To go against the contributing members for the Saints in regards to the 2017 NFL Draft would simply be outrageous. I’m sure the Saints will have some idea of who they want to select when their number is called.

Next is a situation the Saints have to be coy and intelligent towards.
